The 2023 Crest Current will come equipped with the Navy 3.0 Evo electric motor and an E175 battery.

Electric marine propulsion systems manufacturer ePropulsion and North American engine distributor Mack Boring & Parts Co. have struck a deal with Mastercraft and Crest Pontoons Boats to power the all-electric 2023 Crest Current.

The recently announced pontoon will include an ePropulsion Navy 3.0 Evo electric outboard motor and an E175 battery.

“Crest Pontoons is leading the way as one of the first and largest pontoon manufacturers to adopt electric propulsion on a new model boat,” Mack Boring & Parts Co. electric market manager Chris Ponnwitz said in a statement. “The product design team at Crest have made a thoughtful decision selecting the Navy 3.0 Evo as the propulsion of choice for the new Current.”

“With a variety of options when it comes to electric propulsion, we felt the ePropulsion
Navy 3.0 Evo was the perfect fit for the new Current,” said Crest Pontoon Boats president Patrick May in the statement. “The Navy 3.0 Evo is a reliable and durable product and offers a host of features not found on other motors in this power range. We are looking forward to our partnership with ePropulsion on this and potentially other projects in the future.”
