For 2017 Crestliner has just announce the Crestliner PT 18. If you are in the market for an aluminum bass boat, the PT 18 might be one you want to take a look at. The Crestliner PT 18 has a huge 33-gallon livewell, and tons of storage for gear and rods. This boat has a massive bow deck, with a recessed trolling motor tray, a bow tray, and space for your electronics. Can you say perfect? I think I’m in love.
Bow Center Rod Storage
The rod storage on this boat is awesome. It will hold 12 rods up to 8 feet long. I know that’s not enough for some of you die hards, but for most its perfect. I like the fact that there is also additional storage for some gear, and not just space dedicated to rods. The port and starboard storage compartments also can hold rods up to 7’6 a ton of gear. One thing I like is that each compartment is lockable which is to be expected of a boat of this caliber.
Something else that caught my eye is the premium console. It is full featured and can fit up to a 9 inch display. Notice something else while looking at this picture? I see a hot foot which is an option on this model.
This boat looks like it will deliver for those looking for a full featured bass boat. There are a ton of optional upgrades that can be had like hydraulic steering, Outboards up to 150hp, and a boat load of others. Instead of me going on and on, take a few minutes and check out the boat for yourself. Let me know what you think.
