The model year 2023 Manitou, Alumacraft and Quintrex lineups also stand out thanks to their seamless, holistic and daringly innovative design from bow to stern. The result is a truly integrated boat that frees up valuable space for boaters and their families, and that pushes the design to stunning new heights.
