“It may be one of the best kept secrets of the Lund engineers, the ability to steer the boat from the rear provides the ultimate in boat control” states Rory Wiebe, Lund Product Manager. “The tiller control allows the angler precise control so they can perfectly stay on their desired spot and ultimately catch more fish. Even when your battling the wind, you can make precise adjustments quickly to counter the wind and waves to stay on the fish, plus, the wide-open layout allows for completely free range of movement throughout the boat without anything getting in the way for your yourself or other anglers. It’s truly the ultimate fishing machine” added Wiebe, who runs a tiller model himself.
The new 1675 and 1775 Pro Guides take no exception with a twin-plated bow for added durability in rough waters and Lund’s patented IPS Hull for the ultimate in performance. The reverse chines on the outside edge and pronounced center keel deliver precise boat control while the flat center pad provides for blazing hole shot and maximum engine performance.
Providing anglers with the ultimate in fishability the new Pro Guides are loaded with industry leading innovation. The tiller Command Center keeps everything within reach for the driver including storage of three tackle trays, a dedicated graph mounting area, throw tray, three tool holders and all the gauges easily accessible. The rear livewell is also located right next to the driver and even comes with a bait bucket knock-out area to quickly and easily bait your hook for the next fish. The center rod locker holds 10 rods up to 7’ 5” and has an integrated tension strap system to keep your rods securely in place. There’s even integrated LED lights, a transom boarding ladder and just like every other Lund model, the industry’s best storage to maximize every square inch of free space.
The 1675 Pro Guide is 16-feet, 10-inches in length and is rated for a maximum 60 HP while the 1775 is 17’ 10” in length and allows for a 75 maximum HP. There are also twelve different two-tone paint options including Lund’s Black-Out, Red-Out, or White-Out graphic packages for 2020.
For the walleye, bass or musky angler who desires the precision of back-trolling control and a wide-open floor plan layout, the new Pro Guides offer the ultimate in fishability. To find out more information on the new 1675 and 1775 Pro Guides visit www.lundboats.com/boat-series/pro-guide/.
