From the kid whose prize-winning school project makes it into the local paper to the senior couple celebrating a milestone anniversary, there’s nothing quite like the thrill of being featured in a publication.

It’s the same thrill for boatbuilders, especially when it’s their boat being praised in a magazine.

So it was with great excitement that we at Crownline recently learned that our new model bowrider, the 270 SS, was going to be featured in the February 2016 issue of Lakeland Boating, a magazine devoted to recreational boating in the Great Lakes region.

And – spoiler alert – they loved it.


The article, published with the tagline “Brawn, Meet Beauty,” describes how the 270 SS provides fast action, with plenty of power and a smooth, stable ride. The author raves about its abundance of deep storage, comfortable seating and its touches of luxury; combined with all the convenient amenities, the 270 SS is as capable of letting you relax onboard as it is at pumping up your adrenaline.

“What I truly love about this boat,” writes the author, “is the countless thoughtful touches that elevate it from a simply gorgeous boat to an amazing boating experience.”

As if that wasn’t enough, Lakeland Boating also takes a peek at another new Crownline model, the 225 SS. They loved the expansive seating and outstanding audio system of the 225 SS, describing the boat as “a super sport machine with mega party appeal.”
