PRINCEVILLE, Quebec, September 1st, 2009 - Princecraft, the legendary builder of high quality aluminum boats, has more bad news for fish, and more good news for fishing enthusiasts. It has announced a line of 41 models for 2010 which includes two new “DL” models, with special seating and flooring features, plus a wide range of Mercury FourStroke power choices.

The new 14’ 3’’ Yukon DL BT and 16’ Springbok DL BT have both a split center seat, for better accessibility, parallel seats at the stern plus a bow bench seat, with storage under, all covered with durable marine-grade carpet for extra comfort. For even more comfort and convenience, the boats feature a removable pressure treated wood flooring covered with marine-grade vinyl. This feature, few companies offer, will certainly allow stability on the water when you’ll be fishing. Interior is fully painted, adding to the boats’ quality fit and finish.
Both models have a portable gas tank.
The DL BT models are made of Princecraft’s exclusive 5052-H36 marine grade aluminum
alloy, the thickest and the strongest in boating, for better performance and long life with
minimum maintenance. Few other companies offer this unique aluminum because its
hardness requires special tools and manufacturing expertise. Princecraft has been building
top quality aluminum boats for over 55 years and has this expertise.

The Yukon DL BT and the Springbok DL BT boats are also built with twin-plating at the chine
from mid-ship to stern, another Princecraft construction exclusive that provides incredible
strength and durability, including resistance to rocks and sand during shore landings. This
special feature keeps hull shapes true to their design specifications even after years of
service for maximum speed and effortless handling. Their semi-V hulls have square chines
designed to maximize performance and minimize spray.

“The DL series represents stepped-up comfort and fishability for boats in their range,” said
Donald Dubois, president-general manager of Princecraft. “They offer exceptional value and
owner satisfaction in the tradition that has made our brand stand out in the aluminum boat

Both of the new DL BT models support Princecraft’s “trademark” European-inspired styling,
with high-gloss, oven-cured urethane, high-solids paint that resists scratching and fading for
years of “showroom new” appearance. The DL’s basic color is black with (color) graphics.
Both boats have aluminum clad transoms and full-width self-draining splash wells. A battery
holder is also standard. Other features of the new Yukon DL BT and Springbok DL BT
models include two center side storage compartments, heavy-duty tubular seat-to-gunnel
braces, a bow eye and stern handles. High quality beige canvas sun tops, beige mooring
covers and black trailer covers are available for both boats as options.

Like all Princecraft boats, the new DL BT models are covered by a transferable lifetime
limited structural warranty with features that add up to one of the best overall warranty
coverage in boating.
