For 2017, Lund Boats is introducing its new LX Series pontoon boats, a complete family of watercraft with floor plans, 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.
"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.
All LX Series pontoons feature 25-inch diameter, baffled-chamber tubes, engineered full-width aluminum cross-member layout, water-resistant deck and under deck construction, and 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.
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 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 is available in two dual-color options. Lund seating includes double-stitched quilted detailing and partial tucks. 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 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.
The Fish (LF) and Fish & Cruise (LFC) models of the new LX Series offer the aft fishing station, which features a split 11-gallon livewell and aeriated baitwell with timer and removable bait bucket. Two 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 access with forward rod tubes that accommodate four fishing rods up to 8 feet in length.
The LX Series pontoon 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. Options include stitched brow upgrade, steering wheel upgrade, provisions for additional instrumentation and integrated dash space for flush-mounted large display fishing graphs and navigational electronics.
