Our test boat featured twin 25-inch pontoons and was powered by one of Evinrude’s new Pontoon Series engines, a 90 hp E-TEC. Pontoon Series models differ from standard E-TECs in several ways, including softer motor mounts that decrease vibration by as much as 40 percent. They also feature a taller gear ratio, widening the selection of props for pontoon-specific performance, and offer the option of a remote onboard oil tank to keep consumers from having to go under the cowl to top off the oil. Like all E-TECs, they’re also notoriously stingy when it comes to fuel consumption, particularly on the low end. We noted a mere 0.6 gph burn at 5 mph and a 4.5 gph consumption at 18.7 mph, the boat’s most economical cruising speed. Planing was instantaneous, while our top speed peaked at 28.3 mph at 5,500 rpm.
