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

Little Falls, Minn., Sept. 17, 2012 - For the fifth year in a row, Crestliner
has been recognized for excellence in customer satisfaction and the pursuit of
continuous improvement with a Marine Industry CSI Recognition Award, given by
the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA). This prestigious award
honors boat builders 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 32,000 consumers across the industry,
Crestliner received the 2012 NMMA CSI Recognition Award in the category of
Aluminum Outboard Boats. A total of 41 boat and engine manufacturers were
recognized across all categories.

"We at Crestliner couldn't be more proud of our five consecutive CSI Awards,"
said Lori Kneeland, Crestliner's marketing manager. "We strive to deliver
products that are 'Built Right' for our customers and their boating lifestyles.
This honor is an ongoing testament to the success of those efforts. We also
share this award with our outstanding network of dealers, whose tireless service
contributes greatly to customer loyalty and support."

Crestliner will be recognized along with other award recipients at the 2012
International BoatBuilders' Exhibition and Conference (IBEX) in Louisville, Ky.,
Oct. 2 - 4, 2012. As the official NMMA release notes:

"The Marine Industry CSI Awards program honors participating manufacturers that
actively measure customer satisfaction and pursue continuous improvement to
better serve the customer. 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, 2011 and March 31, 2012."
