Brunswick Corporation : Crestliner Partners with MarineTech on New Power Steering System

Otsego, Minn., Sept. 21, 2017 - Crestliner Boats, along with Brunswick Boat
Group's freshwater brands, is partnering exclusively with marine accessory
manufacturer MarineTech Products to incorporate Panther XPS, a hybrid cable and
hydraulic power steering system, into its aluminum boats.

"We view this partnership with MarineTech as a huge step forward in technology
for our line-up," said Jake Mirabal, Crestliner Product Manager. "We're always
looking for ways to make performance more efficient and intuitive, and the
Panther XPS helps accomplish just that."

The Panther XPS combines cable and hydraulic steering by using stored power that
delivers high-pressure hydraulic fluid to a patented cylinder so the pump only
operates when needed, as opposed to typical pumps that run continuously or turn
on when the steering wheel receives steering input. This results in the XPS
using only 10 percent of the typical run time for power-assisted systems,
delivering huge power savings and a reduced risk of draining the battery.

The Panther XPS's hybrid steering system also reverts to cable steering in the
unlikely event of a power hydraulic system failure, giving Crestliner owners
added peace of mind while out on the water.

"We're so pleased to be working with such a strong company to unveil this power
steering system," said Larry Grundtner, president of MarineTech Products.
"Crestliner will be able to offer their customers an innovative product at a
great price, and the partnership will lend a lot of credibility to the Panther
brand, as well."
