Little Falls, Minn., Jan. 8, 2013 - Crestliner is proud to announce major improvements for the 2013 model year to three of its popular boat families.  From thoughtful Super Hawk and Sportsman design and feature enhancements to the introduction of the brand-new 17 Storm to Crestliner’s Mod-V Storm series, this all-new 2013 lineup is sure to give anglers and active families alike the perfect platform to hit the water and fully embrace everything it has to offer.

Through extensive internal testing, research and insightful customer feedback, Crestliner was able to make these already great boat lines even better. The Storm family welcomed the brand-new 17 Storm, designed with versatility and a value price in mind.  The 2013 Super Hawks, newly named as the 1650, 1750, 1850 and 1950 models, boast improved appearance, comfort, safety, convenience and overall fishability.  The all-new Sportsman series provides anglers with a rugged, all-conditions utility boat, with a new hull design born of Crestliner’s industry-leading welded construction methods.

“Because our customers are the people who actually get out there and put our boats to action, they are our No. 1 resource when it comes to enhancing our boats,” said Ben Cast, president of Crestliner.  “They know the sport of fishing and what it takes to find angling success out on the water.  Outstanding durability, superior construction and exceptional performance are some of the key qualities for a solid fishing boat you can count on.  By listening closely to their valuable feedback, our all-new 2013 Crestliner models reflect our commitment to our customers and to building strong, serious fishing boats.  When it comes to wrangling in those trophy catches, rest assured, we’ve got your back, with our 2013 boat lineup.”  
