Lund Boats is introducing the 1750 Rebel XS, a 17-foot, 6-inch boat with an 85-inch beam.
The Brunswick-owned company is marketing the fishing boat as offering “exceptional engineering and a truly tremendous price.”
Armed with Lund's Sport Trak gunwales for adding rod holders and other accessories without drilling holes, as well as the Pro Trak boat-covering system, the 1750 Rebel XS is priced starting at under $20,000, including the boat, a 90-hp 4-stroke engine and a trailer.
“No other boat in its class has so many superior fishing features as the 1750 Rebel XS," Lund marketing director Jason Oakes said in a statement.
The first Rebel to offer a center storage rod locker, the 1750 Rebel XS organizes five rods as much as seven feet long apiece for quick access; a side rod locker safeguards additional rods as long as 8 feet, 6 inches.
Built around Lund’s patented IPS hull, the 1750 Rebel XS is initially being offered with a side console — the SS — or a full windshield, which is called the Sport.
The boat is “strategically priced” between Lund's 1650 Rebel XL and its 1775 Impact, the company said.
In addition to rod storage, the boat also houses a 14-gallon aerated live well, high-tech command console, hidden storage and a cockpit area capable of accommodating as many as six passengers.
“Like some of our more advanced models, the Rebel XS is capable of instantly transforming into a dual-purpose fish and ski boat,” Oakes said. “Great options like rear flip seats with a ski pylon and an Infinity Bluetooth stereo make the Rebel a wonderful boat for all kinds of family fun."
