Harris® has been building quality pontoon boats since 1956, with signature design, cutting-edge engineering and unmatched attention to detail. Beyond quality, our dedication to technology integration means we also offer first-in-class tech features that enhance the boating experience.
Simrad electronics are the heart of any Harris boat, and these dash-mounted multifunction displays (MFDs) create the onboard control hub. The bright, sunlight-readable displays offer intuitive touchscreen control and LED backlighting for easy nighttime operation.
With the Simrad GO touchscreens, you can access charting and fishing information plus engine data, while also integrating audio entertainment via the SonicHub2. Create waypoints for your outing, drag to pan across charts or browse menus that are easy to find and read. Anglers love catching more fish with StructureScan® HD as well as CHIRP sonar.
“A really big feature of the Simrad displays is the ability to have your chart on one screen and your sonar or depth on the second display,” says Simrad’s Chris Meyer.
When boaters equip their boats with Mercury VesselView technology, they gain access to a wide range of digital gauges and performance data all on one screen. VesselView can be accessed through a dedicated digital display from Mercury, or by connecting a compatible Simrad display using the VesselView Link module. You can use the display to track rpm, speed, fuel flow and efficiency, oil temperature and pressure, water temperature, battery levels, engine hours, and even your engine maintenance schedule.
Depending on what on-water activities you enjoy, VesselView also makes it easy to enhance your boating experience through activity-specific Mercury SmartCraft® control features. For fishing, the Troll Control feature lets you precisely dial in trolling speed. If you love tow sports, Smart Tow technology makes great days easy. You can select a tow sports activity, then adjust speed and launch settings to create the perfect conditions for any rider's skill level.
Another option to stay connected is Mercury VesselView Mobile®. It’s a wireless system that allows you to monitor your engine’s performance and share data with your preferred dealer all from your mobile device.
The CZone digital switching system replaces traditional switch and fuse panels with networked “soft” keys that integrate all Harris onboard systems and bring control to a centralized location, namely the Simrad display. No more toggle or button switches to clutter up the dash. Instead, digitally programmable networked switches control onboard lighting, horn, battery switches, navigation and communication electronics, as well as most other electrical components. Control and monitoring don’t get any easier than this, and you can also port the data to your smartphone or tablet, so you’re always connected.
A high-performance audio system adds so much to a day of boating, so Harris partners with premium sound system provider JL Audio, which assesses each individual boat model to determine where to place audio components for optimal performance. Full-range speakers are located throughout, including on towers and in seatbacks, to immerse passengers in the best music experience. Whether you’re fishing in place or running with a tow, you’ll never miss a beat.
Mercury outboards are more than just a source of power to propel your boating experiences. They’re exceptionally quiet and packed with innovative, intelligent technologies that enhance your time on the water. Many of the features go to work for you automatically, optimizing performance and improving fuel efficiency. This includes features like Adaptive Speed Control, which maintains your engine rpm even as load changes, like when carving out a turn, so you can keep your focus on driving. You can also activate the Active Trim feature to automatically manage engine trimming for smooth, efficient performance. With multiple outboard families available for speed, luxury or all-around performance and a range of connected technologies, controls and gauges, Mercury engines make boating easier and more enjoyable.
Onboard technology wouldn’t be complete without an app to track, record and share a personalized outing, and the My Harris mobile app does just that – all from one place. With the app, you can:
With all the cutting-edge components above, Harris strives to offer an integrated technology system on select pontoon boat models so you can enjoy every minute on the water and can share that joy with others during or after an excellent day of boating. Harris brings the tech so you can bring the fun.
