Storm family welcomed the brand-new 17 Storm, designed with versatility and a
value price in mind. The 2013 Super Hawks, newly named as the 1650, 1750,

boats to action, they are our No. 1 resource when it comes to enhancing our
boats," said Ben Cast, president of Crestliner. "They know the sport of
fishing and what it takes to find angling success out on the water.
Outstanding durability, superior construction and exceptional performance are
some of the key qualities for a solid fishing boat you can count on. By
listening closely to their valuable feedback, our all-new 2013 Crestliner
models reflect our commitment to our customers and to building strong, serious
fishing boats. When it comes to wrangling in those trophy catches, rest
assured, we've got your back, with our 2013 boat line-up."
