Crestliner revamps fishing boat line

Aluminum bass- and fishing-boat builder Crestliner, a division of Brunswick Corp., is promoting "major improvements" for the 2012 model year in Kodiak, Pro Tiller and Raptor, three of its most popular fishing boat series.

Through internal testing and research, coupled with extensive customer feedback, Crestliner improved each of the boat lines. The 2012 Kodiak series boasts a roomier cockpit. There is more rod storage than ever, and it is better located throughout the boat. All three Crestliner Pro Tiller models are equipped with a new command console with a lockable electronics compartment and a stabilized electronics tray.

“We treat our customers as a valued resource,” Crestliner president Ben Cast said. “They know fishing, and they know what traits they want in a fishing boat: quality, versatility and durability, just to name a few. These all-new 2012 Crestliner models are a testament to that strong relationship.”
