For the first time in the Crownline’s history, the boat company is releasing 10 new models into the market for the 2019 model year. Crownline Dealers will have a chance to view, test and order these new additions at the annual dealer meeting taking place at Crownline’s homebase (Marion, IL) in mid-August 2018.
“We’re proud to reach this milestone because our philosophy is to be innovative in the marketplace in both design and concept,” shared Amy Turner, Sales & Marketing Director at Crownline Boats. “We’re trying to fill in gaps in the marketplace.”
Of the 10 new models, 5 will be additions to the already wildly popular Crownline outboard series (XS Models). As the demand for outboard powered boats keeps rising, Crownline is answering the call with a range of outboard options from 19-29 feet. These 5 new models for 2019 will fit in perfectly, while offering some new options and sizes not previously included.
“Often at boat shows, the dad will want the outboard, but the mom likes the big swim platform, and the kids want to be able to surf. Everyone wants something different, so finding a one-size fits all boat for a family is a challenge, but it can be done,” Turner concluded. “So, we did things like come out with the E205 XS where you can fish, but you also still have a porta-potty and a privacy curtain for if mom wants to change.”
If the newly announced Boating Industry Top Product of 2018 award for Crownline’s 2018 E23 XS is any indication of how popular the Crownline outboards have become, it seems like they have hit the nail on the head with these crossover outboards and have no plans of slowing down.
You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. Surf Wake will play a big part of the Crownline 2019 lineup. As they launch 3 new surf boats, Crownline’s design and engineering team meticulously crafted these models to be sure they came into this portion of the market strong. Crownline has been testing and perfecting these models for quite some time and has definitely made an impressive splash with the overall design and performance.
The final additions of the 2019 model year will be 2 new stern drive models that will round out an already stellar collection of highly sophisticated designs and top of the line performing stern drive boats that Crownline has built its long and respected reputation on.
Watch for Crownline’s continued growth and presence in the boating industry. In the last 30 days they have signed 7 new dealers in the US and Canada, increasing their availability for consumers as they prepare for the largest model year launch in company history.
