With thick high-quality aluminum and all-welded strength, every Crestliner hull is ready to withstand the harshest of waters and the worst weather conditions. With the strongest hulls on the water, Crestliner employs handcrafted, continuously welded seams for unbeatable strength, durability and a watertight fit.
