Brunswick Corporation : Crestliner Announces Six New Models In 2015, Underscoring Brand's Product Portfolio Expansion Plan

OTSEGO, Minn., Feb. 17, 2015 - Crestliner continues to lead the fishing boat
industry with a series of compelling, all-new boat designs for 2015. Building
off its rich heritage of crafting durable, functional fishing boats, Crestliner
has applied consumer-research insights to six new fishing boats. After nearly
70 years of building the highest standard in aluminum hull fishing boats,
Crestliner has once again raised the bar.

"We're thrilled to share the result of significant research, design and heart
the Crestliner team has put into crafting models that live up to our rich
heritage," Crestliner President Cecil Cohn says. "The brand is quickly gaining
serious momentum in the marketplace as our product portfolio now provides a
comprehensive offering to anglers of all varieties.  We've never been forged
with more strength!"

Big water and aggressive fish are no match for the latest addition to
Crestliner's premium model line-up, the all-new 2050 and 2250 Authority. This
big water series was purpose-built to take on the big waters, in the harshest
conditions and amid the most dramatic fish fights.  Premium wrap-around console,
spacious lockable rod storage up to 9-feet, an elevated 20-gallon insulated
livewell and deep, roomy cockpit, you'll find the Authority hits hard from every

The legendary Crestliner Fish Hawk family just got bigger and better with the
addition of the new 1950 Fish Hawk.  This multi-species boat was designed with
the angler in mind.  The rock-solid, all-welded hull, spacious bow casting
platform, 9-foot lockable rod storage and optional 57-inch muskie livewell
ensure ultimate functionality.

"When we began working on the new 1950 Fish Hawk, we decided to enhance the
features our Pros believe make the model so sought after," Crestliner Product
Manager Christine Bush says. "We listened. We enhanced what was working and
applied our findings to this larger format. The all-new 1950 Fish Hawk is
designed by fishermen who require function and performance."

Applied market research has enabled Crestliner's brand presence to balloon in
southern waterways and catfish competitions in recent years, shaping the new
Intruder series. Crestliner announced the addition of the 2000 Intruder in
January 2015.  This 20-foot fishing machine is a serious contender to catch
trophy catfish to walleye and beyond.  Experience all-day fishing with spacious
lockable rod storage, large bow and stern platforms, comfortable Pro fishing
seats and an 80-gallon livewell.

This year's market ushers in Crestliner's all-new VT18 and TC17.  These models
are members of Crestliner's high-volume bass and crappie segment. Their wide-
beam design carries all the way to the bow, creating spacious, raised bow and
stern casting decks ideal for the dedicated bass or crappie angler. Oversized,
well-placed rod storage makes navigating on-board space quick and simple, ideal
for tournaments.

"We're experiencing tremendous growth in the southern market in response to
Crestliner's diverse southern fishing boats," Lori Kneeland, marketing manager,
explains. "As we surge in the South, it is Crestliner's durability and design,
