G3 Boats' Pro 185 With Modified-Vee Hull Design

Larger Livewell, Improved .100 Gauge Welded Hull

by: Blue Heron Communications,

Bass boats should be built to handle tough conditions yet laid out to compliment the angler's fishing abilities. The Pro 185 from G3 is on the mark for both categories with a hull welded with .100 gauge aluminum and features designed with fishing in mind. The 18 and one half foot long Pro 185 is rated for a 115 horsepower Yamaha outboard and the improved "New Generation" modified-vee step hull calms choppy water for a smooth ride and maximum performance at all speeds. The 3/16-inch extruded longitudinal stringer system runs the full length of the hull, adding strength and providing truer hull alignment.

The cockpit features a deluxe console with windshield and instrumentation, Yamaha throttle and shift cables, a new style deluxe three-across bench seat and the new no-feed back steering. There's no disguising the Pro 185, it's a fishing boat from bow to stern. The extended front deck is built with the 72-inch beam for plenty of casting elbow room. Under the lockable front deck lids are two roto-molded rod lockers with built in rod storage tubes plus two roomy front deck storage compartments with trays to stow gear and tackle. There are even storage compartments under the seats. Both front and back decks are provided deluxe upholstered pinch-less fold down fishing seats with pin bases and pedestals. A divided roto-molded aerated 19-gallon livewell with timer and insulated lid is found on the rear deck as is an easy to reach lockable bilge storage area that holds an 800 gph self-priming bilge pump, batteries and the 21-gallon built-in fuel tank.

Standard equipment includes the Model 743 MotorGuide foot-operated 12-volt trolling motor with 43-pound thrust and Gator Mount and Humminbird W128 Pro depth finder.

The Pro 185 is delivered with the G3 Custom powder coated trailer with transom saver. Bow and stern lights, stainless steel cleats and fire extinguisher add to the craft's safety and convenience.
