Brunswick Corporation : Crestliner Launches New PT20 Bass Boat

OTSEGO, Minn., March 9, 2016 - Launched at the Bassmaster Classic on March 4,
Crestliner continues to grow its impressive bass boat family with the brand-new
PT20. The "PT" stands for Premium Tournament, and everything on this boat-from
the engineering, to the technology, to the incredible fishing features, lives up
to that designation.

"The PT20 is a remarkable bass boat with all the bells-and-whistles serious
anglers demand, yet they won't have to break the bank in order to enjoy it,"
said Chris Crockett, Crestliner's program manager.

More than 160 square feet of onboard space includes a massive front fishing
deck, and large, comfortable modified bucket seating for two in the helm. The
stern and bow decks have an additional Pro fishing seat and adjustable butt
seat, respectively, while an optional center seat boasts storage underneath, and
easily converts to a step platform. A center rod locker holds 10 rods up to 8
feet, 6 inches, and port and starboard lockers hold gear, or a combined 12 rods
up to 8 feet, 6 inches.

Anglers will blast past the competition with a max 200hp engine and 32-gallon
fuel tank, and do so confidently thanks to a loaded, easy-access console.
Hydraulic steering, a molded instrument panel, 12V power outlet, space for 9-
inch flush-mount electronics, multi-function gauges, a windscreen and rotary
switch panel come standard. A Boss® stereo with Bluetooth(TM), and a port
console with glovebox and windscreen are optional. Captains can drive the PT20
similar to an automatic car, with both hands on the wheel and their foot on the
gas, thanks to an optional Hot Foot(TM) throttle. Control extends to the bow,
which has a control panel with space for 7-inch flush-mount electronics, a 12V
power outlet, and trim/nav light switches.

Several onboard innovations set the PT20 apart from other bass boats. The 45-
gallon, dual-lid, aerated stern livewell features a host of industry-leading
features, including a timer, divider, insulation for better temperature
regulation and Venturi re-circulator with pump-out.

The PT20's aluminum, all-welded hull features extra-strength extruded ribs and a
center-welded extruded full-length keel for unmatched durability. This rugged
machine is not only strong, but also stunning. Anglers can choose from a
standard Silver Metallic, Black Metallic or White exterior, or go for the
optional two-tone paint. Soft gray carpet ensures comfortable casting, while
plush seating lets all those onboard unwind on the way back to shore with their
trophy catches.

"We know the PT20's looks and features will create some buzz and have people
talking," said Lori Kneeland, Crestliner's director of marketing.  "But this
bass boat's true badge of honor will be the success anglers have every time they
hit the water."
