The newly redesigned 2024 Crowne 250 model by Harris Boats received top marks at the Minneapolis Boat Show receiving an NMMA Innovation Award in the pontoon category. The Crowne recently launched with the most significant enhancements since the model first debuted in 2004, the 2024 Crowne features unparalleled luxury features and integrated technology raising the bar in its category.

"On behalf of the entire Harris team, we want to thank the NMMA for this prestigious honor," said Brian Athmer, President, Harris Boats. "The redesign of the Crowne was years in the making with an intense focus on creating top-tier luxury, comfort, and performance. We are thrilled the efforts of our team to provide an exceptional pontoon experience are being recognized."

The 2024 Crowne made its boat show debut during the Minneapolis Boat Show giving attendees and award judges alike a first glimpse into the new features and technology. The pontoon comes standard with a full fiberglass body premium design; is built on the newly launched RPM technology foundation; showcases the first of-its-kind Zero G Lounger; and is powered by Mercury Marine.

Innovation awards judges highlighted those features as part of what earned the 2024 Crowne the top honors: "From its new Zero-G Lounger to a newly designed chassis, no details went unchecked in the next iteration of the Crowne from Harris. Bow to stern, the Crowne takes boating in luxury and comfort to the next level," said judge, Adam Quandt.

The Innovation Awards program, organized by NMMA and judged by Boating Writers International (BWI), honors manufacturers and suppliers who bring new, innovative products for the boating industry to market. The award acknowledges products that best meet criteria including innovative distinction from other products currently being manufactured, benefit to the marine industry and/or consumer, practicality, and cost-effectiveness. The judging committee is comprised of BWI members who perform product testing throughout the year and have expertise in marine products.?
