Exterior Styling

The overall construction quality of this boat is unparalleled. From the stitching in the seats to the standard powder-coated rails, your boat is ready to protect against typical wear and tear.

On the exterior, you will find the Caribbean RS comes equipped with three pontoon logs, each 25″ in diameter. Each tube has four individually sealed chambers, which means if you crack a hole in the front and back of your pontoon, you can safely float home without the worry of sinking. 

The Caribbean RS comes standard with a deep-reaching 4-step ladder. The pontoon in this video is equipped with a powder-coated junior beast ski tow bar and 300 horsepower Mercury motor. 

When it comes to the tower on your Crest Caribbean, you have the choice to option your pontoon with the sports tower, which comes powder-coated to match the rails. This tower collapses forward to help with garage storage or cruising under low bridges. The bimini on this tower includes quick-release latches for easy stowing. 

Interior Quality

Convenience is vital in the Crest Caribbean! Plenty of cupholders are available throughout the boat, plus the RS 230 SLRC includes USB outlets so you can charge your phone on the go. The Crest pontoon boat in this video is equipped with the optional mid-ship entertainment table and doggie drawer combo unit to keep your furry friends hydrated during your day on the water.

Throughout the entire boat, it is easy to see Crest’s attention to detail of luxury. Especially on the beautifully appointed dash. You have a metal steering wheel, metal toggle switches, billet aluminum trim pieces, flush-mounted Simrad GPS, and the captain’s cooled cupholder.

Check out the oversized loungers at the back of the boat! They offer extra-wide seat bases for premium comfort. Underneath the lounge seats, you will find massive storage compartments for tubes, inflatables, life jackets, and other gear for your friends and family. All of the seats in this boat feature Chilltech vinyl to keep you cool in the heat of summer. The two helm chairs are both high-backed with full adjustability and a standard bolster seat.

The Caribbean features fiberglass seat bases to give you style options such as custom metal flake inside the boat. The seat bases also offer lots of dedicated storage areas for coolers, trash cans, and any other gear you bring on board.

We love the functionality of the Simrad dash-mounted display. As seen in this walk-thru video, you can easily pull up your chart plotter and depth finder or view your engine information and diagnostics.


The Crest Caribbean drives like luxury on the water. This pontoon can get on plane quickly to maximize fuel efficiency and speed. The Crest Caribbean RS handles more like a stern-drive boat with an excellent smooth bank. Crest pontoons have the largest nose cones in the industry, with double splash guards to help cut through choppy water and keep the water out of the boat on rough days.

Manufactured in Owosso, Michigan, every part of your Crest pontoon is custom built in their factory. Crest uses thicker gauge aluminum on every pontoon tube and includes more cross beams than other brands. 

Crest Pontoons joins a luxury boat lineup from MasterCraft and Chaparral already offered for sale at our Chattanooga store. Give us a call or stop by the dealership to see a Crest Pontoon in person. Get out and stand out on the Caribbean RS!
