Crestliner’s new Bass Hawk builds upon the hull design of the Fish Hawk and features the raised bow and stern decks similar to the company’s PT series.
“We’re really excited to introduce the Bass Hawk not only to hardcore bass anglers, but also to muskie and multiple-species anglers,” said Jake Mirabal, Crestliner product manager. “The Bass Hawk’s rugged build allows for fishing on bigger, rougher waters, which expands where you can fish and what you can catch.”
Available in an 1850 and 1750 model – in both side console and dual console configurations – the Bass Hawk features 18 feet, 9 inches of onboard space on the 1850, and 17 feet, 9 inches on the 1750.
Casting decks are featured at the bow and stern. Both lengths include built-in premium bucket seats, with the option of adding a center seat. The 1850 offers an optional layout, with two pedestal seats in the cockpit and jump seats in the stern.
Four storage compartments hold gear and tools, a recessed trolling motor foot control tucks away, and a center lockable and lighted rod locker contains 15 tubes that hold five 8-foot rods, five 7-foot-6-inch rods, and five 7-foot rods. A rod ramp with straps holds an additional four rods in the cockpit.
The stern deck features multiple storage compartments, and a 28-gallon aerated livewell to keep catches fresh.
Propulsion options include a 150 horsepower Mercury Marine engine on the 1750, and 200 horsepower engine on the 1850 in bucket and pedestal configurations.
The new Bass Hawk is completely wood-free, including the floor and transom. Vinyl flooring is offered as an option. Eight color combinations and the optional Mad Fish graphics or Shock Effect wrap allow owners to personalize the look of their Bass Hawk.
“The Bass Hawk combines many powerful elements from various Crestliner models to create a unique bass boat that’s as commanding as it is versatile,” said Eric Hendrickson, president of Crestliner. “A variety of anglers will find the Bass Hawk ideal for getting them exactly where they need to be with confidence and control.”
