Crestliner’s Retriever Line
|Print | Back|
Serious outdoor sportsmen have a cunning new tool at their disposal: Crestliner’s all-new series of Retriever Jon boats. These ultra rugged Crestliners make ideal companions for hunters or anglers who are looking to get the most boat for their buck. And thanks to their tough, all-welded aluminum construction and unshakable stability, the Retriever Jons make excellent utility boats for heavy-duty, on-water work, as well.
The five-model lineup consists of the 1546, 1650, 1756, 1860 and 2070 Retriever Jon and feature all-aluminum construction, with no wood.
The open Retriever Jon layout maximizes onboard space and maneuverability, so you can load up on gear and still fight the fish wherever they run. The aft bench has room for two passengers and includes a pin-style pedestal seat base for elevated angling. The bow casting platform features storage beneath. Lock Track extruded gunnels add even more functionality to these do-it-all workhorses.
Retriever Jon models are available with a host of options to customize the boat to an owner’s desired needs and pursuits. Side console steering is available in place of standard tiller configurations on all models. Anglers who select the fishing package land a bow pedestal base and seat, battery tray, navigation lights, trolling motor harness and bilge pump. Every Retriever Jon may also be treated with Crest-Liner interior coating, making cleanup after a messy day hose-and-go easy. For the hunter who values stealth, three optional camouflage paint patterns are available: Mossy Oak Break-up, Mossy Oak Shadowgrass and Real Tree Hardwoods.
With a winning combination of value-enhancing all-season versatility, durability and performance, the new Retriever Jons carry on Crestliner’s Built Right philosophy— and are sure to stand up to a lifetime the rugged treatment serious sportsmen demand.
