Crestliner Introduces New and Enhanced Models for 2019

OTSEGO, Minn., March 04, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crestliner Boats welcomes new and redesigned models to its 2019 line-up, each highlighted by incredible performance and exceptional design.  The next generation of the Crestliner Fish Hawk series expands the Deep-V line-up; a brand-new 1650 Fish Hawk joins the legendary family; the 1800 Bay enhances the Mod-V series; and the versatile Chase Pontoon series bolsters Crestliner’s recreational options. In addition to the new models, Crestliner has added innovative upgrades across the line-up.

“Our 2019 models set yet another benchmark in boating,” said Jake Mirabal, Crestliner product manager. “From industry-leading power to innovative, functional designs, our new boats are crafted to deliver incredible performance and unmatched reliability.”

New for 2019, Crestliner redesigned its most popular family of boats: the Fish Hawk. This Deep-V family consists of five models: the 1950, 1850, 1750, 1650 SE (Standard Edition), and the new 1650. Each hull comes with aggressive Mercury Marine power— from best-in-class 115 horsepower on the new 1650, to 225 horsepower on the 1950. With three additional feet in length on the 1750 & 1850, these models now boast maximum horsepower of 150 and 200, respectively.  Onboard, the boats are stocked with ample rod storage, new optional jump seats and a redesigned feature-rich console with space for multiple electronics, including a 12-inch graph and Mercury’s Vessel View option.

In the Mod-V line, the new 1800 Bay offers the best of Crestliner’s bay boat features, while maximizing space and storage. The 1800 Bay—the largest 18-foot bay boat on the market—touts an industry-leading Mercury engine and maximum horsepower rating of 150HP. The new fiberglass center console delivers a feature-rich command center stocked with an instrument panel, ample rod storage, forward-facing cooler seat with SeaDek cushion and aerated 21-gallon stern livewell. With easy access to the bow and storage, the 1800 Bay offers fishermen an efficient, agile package.

Crestliner’s new Chase Pontoon series offers versatility and functionality.  Available in three lengths - 18’, 20’ and 22’ - with multiple layouts, these pontoons are built with reinforced tube construction to deliver unmatched durability. Each model also offers premium passenger comfort, including lounge furniture and a fully loaded helm station. These boats are ideal for elevating recreational time spent with friends and family.

Beyond the new models, Crestliner has added exciting enhancements across the line-up. New paint, limited edition colors and hullside graphics give the Deep-V and Mod-V series a fresh, sleek look. Removable SureMount gunnel system accessories maximize onboard comfort. Select ShoreLand’r trailers offer new extended load guides and ShoreArm’r coating. Easy-to-use shallow water anchors provide ultimate control for the Bass Hawk, PT, VT and VTC series. The wireless MOB+™ (Man OverBoard) system delivers life-saving technology that can be added to most models.

“We raised the bar yet again with our 2019 product upgrades,” Mirabal said. “The new features allow boaters to craft the right boat for how they fish and seek adventure. We’re very excited for boaters everywhere to experience this unparalleled flexibility.”
