Crestliner wins 2020 Minneapolis Boat Show Innovation Award for AP-X Hull Design

Crestliner Boats has been awarded a 2020 Minneapolis Boat Show Innovation Award for their Active Performance (AP-X) Hull design.  Crestliner Boats, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) took top honors in the Aluminum Fish Category.  In 2019, the Aluminum Fish award was given to another Brunswick Boat Group brand, Lund Boats, for their Adventure Series.

“We are honored to receive an Innovation Award for our AP-X Hull design and I want to thank everyone at Crestliner including our product category and New York Mills engineering team,” said Jack Martin, Crestliner Boats general manager.  “This model has redefined Deep-V Performance in the aluminum fish market and there is no other hull in the market like it.  We are thrilled that the judges felt so strongly about our design to give us this award.”

The innovative recessed pad design features dual tracking edges to actively channel water to the prop for instant lift and enhanced driving responsiveness. Hardcore anglers and recreational boaters alike will experience maximum control, acceleration and increased engine performance from this revolutionary, U.S. Patent Pending hull.
