Crestliner Aluminum Fishing Boats. Forged with Strength. Defined by Durability.

PT 18

Built to hold trophies

The Crestliner PT 18 is a high-quality tournament bass boat that is built to take on any water and pull out as much bass as possible. In fact, it’s the same PT family that Jon Cox used to dominate the circuit in 2016. The PT 18 has standard features like a premium console with plenty of space for 9” electronics and premium bucket seats, a butt seat, and a recessed trolling motor foot control and bow panel with space for electronics, winning never felt so comfortable. And with Crestliner’s legendary all-welded aluminum hull leading the way, no bass is safe.

This 18 foot aluminum bass boat comes with ample center rod storage that can fit up to 12 8’ rods. There is additional bow rod and gear storage so you can bring everything you need to win the day. Once you cast from the spacious bow deck that features a massive 96” beam, you’ll see why this flat bottom bass boat is a professional angler’s dream. Reel in as many trophies as you can and store them in the 33-gallon aerated stern livewell that is fully insulated and features a divider and timer. With the PT 18, the winner’s circle is always in reach.
