Fishing electronics manufacturer Lowrance announced an exclusive partnership with Skeeter Performance Fishing Boats.

Lowrance HDS Gen2 Touch navigation systems and Elite-3x fishfinders are now the standard electronics systems offered on Skeeter high-performance bass, multi-species and saltwater fishing boats.

With the three-year contract, which will carry through to the 2017 model year, Lowrance now has more than 80 percent penetration in the bass boat market, the manufacturer said in a statement.

“Skeeter's pursuit of perfection is evident in the way they engineer their high-quality bass boats,” Lowrance president and CEO Leif Ottosson said. “The Lowrance HDS Gen2 Touch and Elite-3x model fishfinder and navigation systems complement their philosophy by offering unmatched clarity and functionality.”

“At Skeeter we have built a reputation for listening to our dealer network and the performance requirements of end users,” senior vice president and general manager Jeff Stone said. “Back by popular demand, we are pleased to once again be able to offer Lowrance products on our boats.”
