Crestliner is celebrating its 70th anniversary this year by touting its eighth consecutive Marine Industry Customer Satisfaction Index award.

"Earning our eighth straight CSI award is a huge victory for us, especially during this milestone year," Crestliner marketing manager Lori Kneeland said in a statement. "The values Crestliner championed 70 years ago are just as strong today and that's reflected in the tireless work of our dealers and the incredible loyalty of our customers."

Based on a program survey of more than 60,000 consumers across the industry, Crestliner received the 2015 National Marine Manufacturers Association’s CSI award in the category of aluminum outboard boats. Crestliner president Cecil Cohn said owners' consistent satisfaction year after year is a testament to Crestliner's enduring values.

"We not only strive to build the highest-quality boats, but also to deliver incredible customer service throughout our high-class dealer network," Cohn said. "We look forward to continually building upon this legacy of excellence, way beyond our 70th anniversary and eighth CSI award."
