TRACKER® TournamentTM V18 All Fish

IFYOU’RE IN THE MARKET for a multispecies fishing boat, TRACKER®’s new V18 All Fish may be just the ticket. It has a great multispecies layout and is designed for the serious angler.
Justover 18 feet in length and with a 7-foot, 3-inch beam (69- inch bottom), this all-welded aluminum boat is designed to provide both a stable fishing platform and be easy to handle while on plane. TRACKER® uses a two-piece hull design with fulllength stringers, and box-beam welded inner deck structure for extra ruggedness. Additionally, 0.100-gauge marine-grade aluminum alloy is used throughout the boat. Other design features include a 17-degree deadrise hull and a 211/2-inch transom height to limit backwash.
Weighingjust 1152 pounds, the V18 easily attains 48 mph with the standard 75 ELPTO outboard, and when equipped with the optional Mercury® 150 OptiMax®, this rig can reach a top speed of 58 mph.
Standardfeatures include: aerated/divided 53-inch bow livewell with full recirculation and pump-out system; similar aftlivewell; baitwell inserts; a 7-footlong, locking rod locker; 25- quart carry-on cooler; molded storage box; MotorGuide® 52- pound-thrust trolling motor; two-bank battery charger; 25- gallon fuel tank; Lowrance® X47 fishfinder; and relocatable twin fishing chairs.
