Brunswick Corporation : Lund Launches New 2017 LX Pontoon Series

Legendary boat builder brings its design, quality and manufacturing excellence
to a high-value line of pontoon boats for recreation, cruising and fishing.

New York Mills, Minn. Jan. 18, 2017 - For 2017, Lund Boats is introducing its new LX Series pontoon boats, a complete family of watercraft with innovative floor plans, high-value standard features and configurations designed for recreational use, fishing and multi-use enjoyment. The LX Series will be offered in a choice of three lengths at 20, 22 and 24 feet, with five distinct floor plans available at each length.

One of the most revered and preferred brands in the boating industry, the Lund heritage represents nearly 70 years of boat-building innovation, craftsmanship and high performance on the water. Lund LX Series pontoons reflect that heritage and have been designed all-new from the ground up, incorporating superior design and build quality, versatile layouts with modern convenience and performance features, designed for a spectrum of uses, from family cruising to serious fishing.

"Lund's boat building experience and listening to our customers really shows in how the LX Series pontoons are designed and equipped," said Tony Kolker, Lund marketing manager. "From Lund's robust construction to a host of inspired luxury and convenience features, the LX Series offers what we feel is the industry's best combination of innovation, value, comfort and performance." Kolker added that LX Series models, including a 50 hp Mercury ELPT 4-stroke engine, are advertised as low as $19,849.

Superior Design and Construction
All LX Series pontoons feature large, 25-inch diameter, baffled-chamber tubes, intelligently engineered full-width aluminum cross-member layout, superior water-resistant deck and under deck construction, and stylish, full-height fence panels with a sound dampening design. Customers can select between the standard, dual-tube model; the Sport Package option featuring a modified center tube, lifting strakes and keel for additional buoyancy, speed and performance; or the Performance Plus upgrade that offers all the Sport package features, plus a full-length center tube for maximum speed, maneuverability and performance. There are four different color packages, including an optional black anodized fence and bimini to give the perfect accent. The Lund LX Series pontoon boats can accommodate up to a 200-horsepower engine and offers fuel capacity from 28 gallons (standard) to 37 gallons.

Comfortable Interiors and Inspired Style
With a wide choice of exterior colors and accent combinations, interior styles and layouts, boat lengths, flooring choices and dozens of options, customers can order a pontoon boat that is distinctly their own. Five different interior layouts include two walk-through configurations (WT and WTDS dual seat models) designed for maximum seating and easiest access to the aft deck for swimming and recreational sports; an "L" lounge and cruise layout (LC model) with "L" lounge and two bow lounge seats; a Fish & Cruise layout (LFC model) with "L" lounge and bow lounge seating combined with two aft fishing seats and fishing station; and a dedicated Fish layout (LF model) with 4-corner fishing seats plus "L" lounge seating, and a host of fishing and storage features. The two fish models also come standard with a rod locker and a fish station.

Pillow-top furniture on the Lund LX Series offers the ultimate in comfort, style and durability. Available in two dual-color options, Lund seating including double-stitched quilted detailing and partial tucks offer superior aesthetics, comfort and performance. Two helm seat styles are available in standard low-reclining and optional high-back styles, and two fishing chair styles are available, including standard folding and an optional Pro Ride upgrade. Durable rotocast furniture bases also offer convenient storage. Flooring options include tan or grey seagrass as standard, or choose from optional deluxe flooring including TPO, Designer Weave or Teak upgrades. All models include a 10-foot bimini and full canvas cover with convenient Kwik Clips, plus removable tables and swim ladder as standard. Low-cost Convenience and Luxury upgrade packages add additional features.

Advanced Fishing Features
No one knows the needs of anglers like Lund. The Fish (LF) and Fish & Cruise (LFC) models of the new LX Series offer new innovations that others can't match. The Lund aft fishing station is more than a livewell: it features a split 11-gallon livewell and aeriated baitwell with timer and removable bait bucket. Two large, lockable tackle storage drawers accommodate up to eight 3600 Series tackle trays, standing vertically for easy access and features a provision for mounting an aft fish locator or graph. Also standard in the LF and LFC models: an integrated rod locker, featuring a large door for maximum access with forward rod tubes that accommodate four fishing rods up to 8 feet in length.

State-of-the-art Helm
When it comes to function and convenience, Lund delivers. The LX Series pontoon advanced helm design includes modular instrument design and advanced ergonomics. Standard convenience features include low-profile tilt steering wheel with a removable windshield, tack, trim and fuel gauges, 2-level footrests, glovebox and cubby and large base storage compartment, three cup holders, courtesy lights and a choice of standard or premium stereo music systems.
