Our video review team over at Boats.com tested out the Crestliner VT 17, and the video below has since become one of our most-viewed.
VIDEO BOAT REVIEW TRANSCRIPT
Crestliner has been building aluminum boats in Minnesota since 1946, and up in the North Woods it’s earned a reputation for building a really premium-quality fishing boat.
The VT 17 is a 17-foot 7-inch bass boat that’s all welded and all aluminum. There’s not a splinter of wood in this boat to rot. In fact one of the only components of the boat that isn’t aluminum is this nice molded console. There’s plenty of room under this console for even my long legs, and on the dash we’ve got a full set of instruments and a Lowrance X-50 fish locator that’s standard equipment. On the transom this boat comes with a Mercury 60 Fourstroke engine.
Now yesterday we ran this boat in some really rough water. But as you can see it’s a beautiful day today here on Lake of the Ozarks. So we’re gonna go out and see how the boat feels on some smooth water.
