The new WX2060 is designed for multispecies fishing.

Skeeter Products said it has added the new WX2060 to its fleet of outboard-powered fishing boats for 2018.

It offers more space, storage and cockpit depth in a multispecies model that seats as many as six.

“When you move up to a 20-foot fishing boat you expect more of everything, and the all-new WX2060 delivers multispecies mastery,” Jeff Stone, senior vice president of Skeeter Boats, said in a statement. “The design of the WX2060 caters directly to anglers and exhibits some of the best all-around performance in its class.”

The WX2060 comes standard with a Minn-Kota 112 Ulterra US2 trolling motor with iPilot; a Yamaha F9.9 kicker outboard with remote control; a Lowrance Elite Ti fishfinder in the dash; forward deck and cockpit rod stays; center rod storage with large tubes; a keel protector; a Bluetooth device with four speakers; a 25-gallon insulated stern live well, a nine-gallon bow bait well; and a Minn-Kota 10x4 charging system.

Maximum power is rated at 250 hp.
