Lund Boats introduced the 2017 Renegade — a Mod-V fishing boat with Lund’s IPS hull.

This wood-free boat comes in two models: the 1775, which is 17 feet, 9 inches, and is rated for a 90-hp engine, and the 1875, which is 18 feet, 9 inches and is rated for a 115-hp engine.

This series offers a model for both bass and crappie anglers. Although each model offers a 95-inch beam and a 22-gallon fuel capacity, the primary difference between the two is in the live well placement.

The crappie models are designed with two additional seat bases in the bow, and a 12-gallon bow live well that's accessible from the casting deck.
