VT

The best part about catching bass is doing it again 

Catching bass is what the VT 17 is built for. Because when it comes to bass fishing boats, the VT 17 is a seventeen and a half foot fishing machine. Everything sits atop Crestliner’s legendary all welded aluminum hull, including a feature-filled console, plenty of storage, a 22-gallon stern livewell, ergonomic recessed foot control and more. Now start enjoying the best part of the VT 17--catching bass.
