Since 1957, Crest has been in the forefront of pontoon construction. From the time it opened its doors at the Owosso, Michigan, location, the address has not changed as Crest continues to innovate in this sector of boat building.

“With deluxe features and upgrades, the Classic DLX has all the creature comforts needed for all-day adventures or simply enjoying the moment,” says Rod Bensz of B&E Marine.

The DLX 220 SLC offers the helm with tilting steering wheel and SeaStar Xtreme Steering, with an additional captain’s chair to port. Four lounges — two forward and two aft — complete the ample seating area with plenty of room to move around the deck in safety and comfort.

There are six primary panel colors to choose from. A matching Bimini top is standard, and options include powder-coated rails, an additional bow top and individual seat covers. Some furniture upgrades include an amidships three-drawer storage cabinet, entertainment table and bow filler seat.

“Keep the party going and never run out of battery with a wireless charging station at the helm,” Bensz adds. “The new wraparound design along with new helm trims will have you cruising in style.”

The standard 25-foot, two-tube configuration is designed for a 115-hp outboard, while the three- tube upgrade can handle power up to 150 hp. The boat also can be optioned to hold up to 250 hp with the CPT DLX package. With a standard audio system, Bluetooth and four 150W, 6.5-inch RBG Fusion speakers, your time on the water will be that much more enjoyable. And for exciting watersports activity, add a ski tow bar aft.
