Published: Monday, September 9, 2019
Harris Pontoons continue to set a new bar in the marine industry, officially launching the all-new Solstice 230 and 250 models. Both the 230 and the 250 are the first Harris pontoon models to offer CZone digital switching capabilities with best-in-class electrical infrastructure. The pre-programmed, single-touch modes give the boater ultimate control of the onboard electrical systems, offering a significantly enhanced experience with modern day luxury infused with intuitive technology for every family.
The new Solstice models offer a modern and contemporary furniture design featuring a brand-new helm with an additional 8” of leg room and almost 70 percent more room in the rear of the boat – perfect for a family to enjoy a day on the water.
In addition, the Solstice models are equipped with USB chargers in every piece of furniture and have more than 20 cup holders, an optional wireless phone charger, lighted speakers and feature 7” and 9” screens (Simrad GO7 and GO9 series).
“The new 230 and 250 Solstice models will create a new category in the pontoon market,” said Huw Bower, Brunswick Boat Group president. “Harris continues to redefine the industry and these new luxury pontoon models give the consumer a premium product based on the advanced technology, amenities and capabilities that are available through the partnership with Power Products.”
Furniture and Layout Changes
Designed and developed in-house and manufactured in Indiana on a dedicated Harris production line, the redesigned furniture on the new Solstice model gives the boat a modern and sporty look with ergonomically placed speakers and cupholders.
In addition, the new Solstice models offer new functionality including a three-position single lounger, a three-position back seat and a built-in cooler. The new furniture design, styling and vinyl offer both a highly durable SeaTex vinyl and a silky soft touch vinyl, highlighting the company's ability to deliver on world-class design thinking principals for the consumer.
Consumers will also enjoy additional space on the boat as Harris has moved the playpen on Solstice models 10” forward, providing an additional 18” of more space in the rear of boat for families to enjoy time on the water.
“There is no other pontoon like the Solstice in the world,” said Bower. “Our pontoon product development team at Brunswick engineered a beautiful and contemporary pontoon like nothing we have seen before in the marketplace. We are excited to get the Solstice models on the water for our customers to enjoy.”
CZone Connectivity + Digital Switching
Never before has a Harris pontoon been equipped with the functionality of CZone connectivity and digital switching -- until now. The 230 and 250 Solstice offer the most advanced digital switching system for pontoons with a clean helm design, superior electrical architecture and intuitive ease of servicing.
With CZone, functionality and modes can be changed, programmed and updated in real-time – ideal not just for the boat builder, but for the novice and advanced boater on the water. Additional features of CZone digital switching include pre-programmed, single button click modes such as: “Party Mode”, “Swimming Mode”, “Cruising Mode” and more.
CZone also offers dealers and consumers an electrical architecture in a true hub and spoke model, allowing for maximum design and manufacturing flexibility while providing easy upgrade opportunities for our dealers and consumers.
“The new Solstice models show off our dedication to innovation and manufacturing the best pontoons in the world as well as the inspiration our consumer feels on the water,” said Bower. “To showcase this model with CZone, displays Brunswick Boat Group’s commitment to all Brunswick brands working together to drive innovation and lead their respective markets. The early response for this offering has been incredible and we are excited about the future at Harris.”
