Brunswick Corporation : Crestliner Receives Seventh Consecutive NMMA CSI Award For Excellence In Customer Satisfaction For Aluminum Boats

OTSEGO, Minn., Oct. 21, 2014 - For the seventh year in a row, the National
Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) has awarded Crestliner with a Marine
Industry Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) award. Crestliner's seventh CSI award
recognizes the brand's excellence in customer satisfaction, as well as every
Crestliner's built-to-outlast construction. Highlighting Crestliner's quality as
appreciated by Crestliner customers, this award honors boatbuilders whose
customer-satisfaction scores, based on independent surveys of all their new boat
customers, are among the best in the industry.

Based on a program survey of more than 60,000 consumers across the industry,
Crestliner received the 2014 NMMA CSI award in the category of Aluminum Outboard
Boats. Crestliner President Cecil Cohn said owners' consistent satisfaction is a
statement of Crestliner's enduring brand values: outstanding durability, design
and performance. "After nearly 70 years of proven results, Crestliner continues
to build boats with the same dedication to industrial workmanship and inventive
spirit that laid the foundation to become a world-wide leader. We also share
this award with our outstanding network of dealers, whose tireless service
contributes greatly to customer loyalty and support."

The NMMA recognized Crestliner for this achievement at the 2014 International
BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) in Tampa, Fla. Award recipients
achieved and maintained an independently-measured standard of excellence of 90
percent or higher in customer satisfaction over the past year, based on
information provided by customers purchasing a new boat or engine during the
period between April 1, 2013 and March 31, 2014.

"We at Crestliner couldn't be more proud of our seven consecutive CSI awards,"
said Lori Kneeland, Crestliner's marketing manager. "This recurring recognition
is a reflection of our commitment to quality as a maker of aluminum fishing
boats that are 'Forged with strength. Defined by durability.' We commend our
Crestliner dealers who live and breathe our commitment as much as we do. We look
forward to continued success."
