NEW YORK MILLS, Minn. – Lund unveiled the new 1875 Pro-V Bass boat during its August dealer meeting
The Pro-V Bass was influenced by extensive research, development and pro-angler input. The original Pro-V Bass is built on Lund’s IPS2 aluminum hull and the framework features a flat center pad, multiple lift strakes and two reverse chines.
“Lund has engineered an amazingly fishable, functional bass boat combined with the best aluminum V-hull in the industry,” said Jeff “Gussy” Gustafson, a Lund pro angler. ”
Rated for up to a 200hp outboard, the 1875 Pro-V Bass hit speeds in excess of 60 mph. The boat comes in two distinct seating configurations — the classic bench seating or the multi-species pedestal seating version. The bench-seating version includes recessed bench seating and also features a patent-pending gas-assist tackle storage that rises vertically out of the back deck for tackle access.
Similar in fishability and function, the pedestal seating layout includes two swivel cockpit seats plus two additional “jump” seats, which flip up and fold back down into the rear casting deck, providing ample seating for up to four anglers.
Each boat has an in-deck 3-tier center rod locker, with individual tubes for five 9-foot rods, five rods up to 8’ 8” and five more to 8’ 4”. A built-in bump stick mount lies just to the left of the rod locker for taking snap measurements. Meanwhile, on the deck, four stowing rubberized rod tie-downs keep critical combos within easy reach.
The bow casting deck has four large storage compartments, each built with Lund’s new patent-pending Advanced Water Control deck system. Storage hatches are fully sealed, while any excess water is channeled down and away from the compartment itself, so tackle and gear stays drier. The bench seat version also includes a patent-pending shock-assist pop-up tackle compartment under the rear casting deck, which accommodates nine additional 3700 size boxes. Sixteen more 3700s fit beneath the bench seat. The Pro-V Bass also comes with Lund’s patented Prolong System with a 28-gallon, 36-inch livewell.
The Pro-V Bass is available in a 24- or 36-volt battery configuration. A removable port console adds interior space, while a rear ski-pylon offers versatility for family water sport use. On the bow, a recessed, in-floor trolling motor foot-pedal slot allows for direct wiring or connection via plug-in. Recessed sonar mounts accommodate giant 12-inch screens, both on the bow and in the console.
