Tournament-class, standard components include a MotorGuide® wireless trolling motor, Lowrance® fish locator, Teleflex® gauges, painted trailer with swing tongue, plus your choice of Mercury® outboard. Fishing features include a 44" long, 23 gallon bow livewell with bait bucket and 14.5 gallon stern livewell (185 & 175) with timers and super-reliable Flow-Rite® plumbing.
