Grand Cayman 
The Grand Cayman pontoon is a pontoon that looks good inside and out, balancing comfort with style and spaciousness with elegance. This series is available with either outboard or sterndrive power. With its soft touch vinyl, distinguished graphics package that flows onto the painted tubes and deluxe helm station with Sony stereo and built-in Lowrance depth finder, this pontoon has turned many heads since its introduction. 
All Grand Cayman models come standard with the industry's largest pontoon tubes that are 27 inches. These tubes keep the deck higher, giving a more stable ride. Crestliner also adds an under-deck aluminum skin that is standard on this pontoon. Three pontoon versions are also available on many models and come with lifting strakes, massive in-floor storage and hydraulic steering. The sterndrive models feature a fully integrated, extended stern deck, providing a handy swim platform with a retractable ladder.

All Grand Cayman three-pontoon models feature lifting strakes that add an extra measure of performance and stability. The unique Crestliner design positions the strakes on both sides of each tube, creating faster planing and easier cornering, as well as maximizing top speed and fuel efficiency.
