You should contact your nearest Authorized Qwest Dealer for information and pricing questions. Any pricing shown on the website is usually Manufacturer Suggested Retail Pricing (MSRP) and may not be the actual price you will pay. Pre-Owned boats are only sold at our authorized dealers who should be contacted directly for their current inventory and pricing. Visit an Authorized Qwest Dealer or use the Contact Form on the left to send a question.
The best way to get a 2021 Qwest brochure is to visit your local Authorized Qwest Dealer and spend some time to see the boats on display while you are there. We also have our current and past brochures available for you to view & download. If you would like a printed brochure then fill out this Request a Brochure Form.
Qwest builds a vast range of floor plans with a large variety of deck & interior options. If you would like to customize a boat beyond our standard layouts & options, discuss your specific ideas with a local Authorized Qwest Dealer and they will submit the request to the Qwest factory. Not all requests are possible due to certain design/safety constraints. Designs that are possible will be quoted with a customization fee. ONLY the Qwest factory (Apex Marine) can provide approval & pricing for custom boats. Visit an Authorized Qwest Dealer or use the Contact Form on the left to send a customization request.
No, all Qwest pontoons are sold and delivered through our Authorized Qwest Dealer network who are set up to handle state and local sales taxes, state watercraft/title registrations, financing, rigging the boat in compliance with state and local regulations, and final delivery to the customer. Dealers also are your local resource for parts, service, and annual maintenance. All rental fleet customers should also purchase through an Authorized Qwest Dealer.
The motor powering your new Qwest will depend on the brand(s) that your local Qwest dealer is authorized to sell & service. Most dealers offer (2) or more motor lines so you have a choice and can take advantage of seasonal warranty or discount incentives. Qwest supports all major motor brands including Honda, Mercury, Suzuki, Yamaha, Tohatsu, as well as electric outboards like Torqeedo Cruise & Minn Kota E-Drive. Contact your local Authorized Qwest Dealer or visit their website to see what motor lines they support.
All Qwest product lines and boat models can be equipped with an electric motor as an alternative to a gas motor. The electric motor will mount at the same position on the transom that a gas outboard would mount. Steering and throttle would still be controlled from the captain's seat/helm. Electric motors are a great option for the Gillgetter product line, as well as LS, Edge, and LE boats from 14' to 18' long (7514, 816, 818). An electric motor will still work with boats 20' or longer at slower speeds and limited maneuverability.
The Gen II Triple Tube Package is available on all pontoons 16' or longer. This includes all models in the Qwest LS, Edge, and LE lines with the exception of the Edge 7514 models which are 14' long.
Qwest uses SurLast all-weather fabric for all canvas on our pontoons including bimini tops/boots, playpen covers, and individual seat covers. Visit our Resources & Warranty page to learn about the recommended cleaning methods.
All parts & accessories should be ordered directly from an Authorized Qwest Dealer. If the part is not in stock with the dealer, they will order the part from our factory for you. Lead times for parts orders are typically longer during the peak spring & summer seasons. Include your boat Serial Number (APX.....) when ordering parts so that we can provide/build the correct part for your boat. Visit or call an Authorized Qwest Dealer or use the Contact Form on the left to send a part/accessory request.
Service, repair, and warranty work required for your Qwest pontoon should be performed by the Authorized Qwest Dealer where you purchased the boat. If you are the second or third owner of the pontoon, find a nearby Authorized Qwest Dealer or use the Contact Form on the left to send a service/repair request.
All warranty claims must be submitted to Qwest Pontoons from an Authorized Qwest Dealer. Warranty work requires pre-approval from the Qwest factory. To start a warranty claim please contact the dealer in which you originally purchased the pontoon through.
At the current time due to COVID health and safety regulations, the plant is closed to all visitors and we are not conducting tours. We will open back up for tours later in 2021 as it is safe to do so.
