Lund is offering two new models: the 1875 SE / IFS and 1775 SE / IFS.

“Serious anglers will love everything these boats have to offer,” Lund design engineer Rory Wiebe said in a statement. “These are true fishing machines in smaller 17- and 18-foot packages. Big water to small lakes, these boats can handle it all.

“Just like their bigger brothers, the new Pro-Vs are built on heavy-duty, high-performance IPS2 hulls. They power across the surface with minimal motor strain, providing a supremely smooth, dry ride,” Wiebe added.

The high-performance 1875 SE/IFS and 1775 SE/IFS Lund Pro-Vs are manufactured in side-console and full-windshield versions. The list of Pro-V features and options is available by visiting or a Lund dealer.
