|Brunswick Corporation : Lund Launches New Impacts for 2018 Line-up|
Lund strengthens fishing family line-up with a complete redesign of the Impact series, including launching two new Impact XS models
The Lund Impact series has built a reputation as a leading fishing and recreational boat due to its diverse offering of innovative models, ranging from 16 to 20 feet. The new 2018 line-up not only includes a redesign of the fishing-focused 1675, 1775, and 1875 Impact models, but also expands the XS family friendly series with new 1675 and 1775 models to go along with their redesigned 1875 and 2025 models. For detailed specifications on all the models please see the adjacent chart.
Built with Lund's famous IPS hull design, the full Impact line-up features a pronounced center keel, double-riveted seam construction, two reverse chines and a flat rear center pad for blazing-fast hole shots, impressive tracking, stability, and bulletproof durability. All backed by Lund's industry leading lifetime warranty.
In addition to adding length and width for more cockpit space where needed, the new Impacts are updated with a wider and more robust gunnel that includes an external rub rail for added peace of mind while docking the boat. There's even an innovative lighting track that is integrated into the gunnels for added light while fishing at dusk.
Sleek, new black consoles even have a VesselView dash option, which gives these boats a sporty look without sacrificing an ounce of functionality. The VesselView unit replaces the gauges on the dash and can also act as a GPS fish locator or a second unit for the hardcore anglers.
Multiple storage options such as the under-console drawers, side storage, and port and starboard rod storage give both your family and fishing buddies plenty of room to store their belongings. Additionally, Lund's fishing DNA continues to flow with an enhanced center rod locker to accommodate longer rods, and a new handle storage system that keep rods secure and in place while traveling through rougher waters.
Now, let's look at the differences between the two Impact series. The primary differences between the regular Impact and the Impact XS are the rear seating configurations, ski pylon option, bow cushion option and an integrated top hider in the XS version. The XS has a built-in rear jump seat to easily allow for multiple passengers or extra seating. The 1775, 1875 and 2025 all comfortably seat six passengers in the cockpit, while the 1675 has seating for five passengers. The ski pylon and bow cushion options in the XS easily transform this serious fishing boat into extra sport for family fun during the peak temperatures of the day.
All Impact models have a large bow deck with a center and side rod lockers, which gives anglers more fishing space, while also offering ample storage for fishing gear. There's also a bow livewell with an optional baitwell to ensure your bait of choice remains active during a long day of fishing.
On the aft deck, anglers will enjoy the integrated jump seats on the XS, or they can choose a rear flip seat option on the standard version, which converts the back deck into a larger casting area as well as adding two additional seats. There's also a massive rear livewell on all models, which is 37-inches long to keep your catch lively all-day on the water.
The Lund Impact line has a well-proven track record of performance and versatility for fishermen and recreational boaters alike. With all these new innovative enhancements, this already popular series will fit even more family budgets for fishing or boating needs.
