“At each trim level within the Crest family of pontoons, we provide owners with unprecedented quality, safety, style and comfort,” Crest Marine senior vice president of sales and marketing Joe Antonneau said in a statement.

“With the new collaboration we know that we are adding to this level of quality by offering the very best navigation and fishfinding system on the market. We are positive our customers will be very pleased with the Simrad GO5 XSE display.”

“We are proud of our latest standalone navigation systems and know they are a perfect fit for such a well-respected boat brand like Crest. We also look forward to developing this partnership further.”
