Sensible Superiority Seen in 2000 G3 Panfish Modified-V

Standard Modified-V Perfect For Many Anglers

(Friday, November 26,1999 - Lebanon, MO) Long known for top performance with exceptional value, the Modified-V series from G3 goes a step further in 2000 with the PF165 Panfish, one of the best boats for the money on the water.

A stronger, more stable craft bow to stern with virtually indestructible riveted construction or a solid all-welded design, the PF165 comes standard with plenty of comfortable seating, ample storage, oversized aerated livewell, lockable eight-foot rod boxes and more. Top-notch accessories are standard and include a MotorGuide 743 trolling motor with foot control and 43-pound thrust, and a Humminbird Pro Angler depth finder. All G3 boats are backed by Yamaha’s legendary power and performance. Value is added with great G3 warranties including five years on the hull, three years on Yamaha four-stroke engines, two years on all other Yamaha engines, two years on G3 trailers and a limited lifetime warranty on floors and decks.

At 15-feet, 10-inches long, 70-inches wide and with a 40 horsepower maximum, the PF165 is the smallest Modified-V in the G3 line but a giant in terms of fishability. It is equipped with Yamaha controls, a six gallon portable fuel tank, bolted on stainless steel cleats, stick steering, bench-style roto-molded seat with aerated livewell and battery storage, two lockable rod lockers, marine grade carpet, running lights, one fold-down fishing seat mounted on roto-molded pedestal base, locking fold-down drivers seat, and 34-quart removable cooler.

For performance and value, fishability and features, the G3 Panfish 165 adds up to a “best buy” for any angler who wants big value in a compact water-ready boat package.
