Crest Marine’s Continental model was named best luxury model for the second consecutive year by boaters at Pontoon and Deck Boat magazine’s annual demo-ride event.

More than 20 exhibitors participated in the event at the Fourwinds Resort and Marina in Bloomington, Ind., on Sept. 26 and 27.

“Our Continental blurs the line between the traditional pontoon boat and a fiberglass sport cruiser,” Crest Marine design director Matthew Blew said in a statement. “We designed and engineered the boat with a full-height, walkthrough windshield, coupled with a full enclosure. Still today, it’s the only one of its kind.”
