With pontoons making a comeback in the past couple of years, Evinrude jumped on that slow and relaxing pontoon bandwagon with their new E-Tec Pontoon Series of outboards, and rightfully so considering the ways they are improving the daily life for pontoon boaters. The Pontoon Series is available in 90hp, 115hp, and 150h--with the 90hp coming in two different models (E90SL and E90SNL). Various new features set these outboards apart from others and can help enhance the enjoyment in a blue-skied, sunny day out on the water.
The more money you can save on fuel, the more you can spend on your boat--and who doesn't want that? Being the lightest motor in its class and beating its closest competitor by 21 lbs., the Evinrude E-Tec Pontoon Series is a great outboard for bettering your fuel consumption. Also, with a unique stratified combustion process that allows only part of the chamber to be utilized when at idle or slow speeds, you'll see impressive fuel efficiency continued when not needing a lot of power. Put one of these outboards on your pontoon, sit back, relax, and watch your tank and wallet stay full a lot longer.
Sometimes you want to have your cake and eat it too--in pontoon life that means sometimes you want to enjoy a slow, relaxing ride while also having the option to participate in water sports. The Evinrude E-Tec Pontoon Series helps close that gap between the two and increase the versatility of your pontoon boat. These E-Tech engines are unlike other 2 strokes, they provide the best torque in their class. With a high torque at lower rpms, these outboards are the best 2 stroke option for pulling up skiers and wakeboarders with your pontoon boat. Often, higher torque comes hand in hand with more vibrations, but not with this series of outboards. The E-Tec Pontoon Series has features that allow you to take the good without the bad. These Evinrude models have specially designed motor mounts that reduce the vibrations from the outboards, creating a smooth and quieter ride.
Like all E-Tec motors, the E-Tec Pontoon Series offer advantages when it comes to maintenance. All E-Tec motors offer 3 years or 300 hours of no scheduled maintenance, which means less time and money at the shop. On top of E-Tec specific features, there are features special to the series. The Pontoon Series has a remote oil tank, which makes it easy to access for re-fills and checks. Also making your up-keep hassle free, this series offers automatic winterization. With the capability to automatically winterize in a quick 4 minutes, the Evinrude E-Tec Pontoon Series can extend your boating season and make the anticipation of winter a little less painful.
The Evinrude E-Tec Pontoon Series will take your pontoon boat to the next level and with a smooth, easy transition. Summer is here, but like always, it will be gone before we know it.
