Currently in production, the 2019 model year boats will start shipping to our dealer network in late June 2018.

The select models will feature Humminbird products including Solix, Helix, Mega Side Imaging, and the Ultrex with i-Pilot Link.

“At Skeeter, we continue to focus our efforts on providing our customers with elevated boat packages that include essential integrations to enhance their overall fishing experience,” said Skeeter boats senior vice president Jeff Stone in a statement.

“We have a tremendous history with Humminbird Electronics, and we’re pleased to take that collaboration to the next level,” said Stone. “The engineering, sales, and marketing professionals at Humminbird Electronics and Johnson Outdoors are consistently among the leaders in industry product technology. By making Humminbird Electronics standard on a selection of our boats, we have the ability to offer our customers even better experiences on the water.”

“As the innovation leader in superior fish-finding technology, including MEGA Imaging™, Humminbird® is the perfect fit as standard electronics on select Skeeter boats, a premier bass boat manufacturer,” said Judy Douglas, Johnson Outdoors Marine Electronics, Inc. group vice president. “Skeeter has a rich history of providing generations of anglers their best fishing memories, and we are privileged to join forces with Skeeter in continuing to deliver on that legacy.”
