Feature-packed and fully customizable, the Crestliner 1860 Retriever comes through with flying colors both as a hunting and fishing Jon boat. It impresses with performance and storage space and customization options.

Boasting either a tall center console (CC) or a side console (SC), this all-welded boat comes with the new 45-degree Suremount Gunnel System, which allows you to slide accessories along it for perfect placement.

The upgraded models have improved ergonomics for standing and sitting at the helm. There’s plenty of space for mounting electronics, a cup-holder and mobility.

Plus, a 16-gallon aerated livewell, multiple storage compartments, and comfortable seating for up to seven people.

Its port side and console racks offer you plenty of room to store your rods while the camo paint lets you stay out of sight from your prey. On the inside, the no-slip paint is also relatively easy to keep clean.
