A Total Performance Bass Boat Rated For 200 HP

by: Blue Heron Communications,

(11/17/2000 - Kilgore, TX,) The ZX200 from Skeeter is quite simply a smaller version of the ZX225, considered to be Skeeter's flagship bass boat, and the ZX250, the largest Skeeter bass boat. Extending a tape measure to 19 ' 5" in overall length, the 200 horse power rated ZX200 is smooth and dry on the big water and can maneuver into the back of timber filled coves for that secret pocket of bass. Like her big sisters, the ZX200 has a 92-inch beam so the forward fishing platform is long and wide with so much room that two anglers can fish the front and not get in each other's way. The ZX200 also has oversized storage boxes including two rod lockers on the front deck with room to hold a large number of outfits neatly arranged with the built-in integrated rod storage system. The front deck also has two spacious storage compartments to hold plenty of tackle. More storage compartments are built into the back deck and under the seats. Three retractable rod staze hold rods secure on the decks on even the longest and roughest runs.

Other standard features of the ZX200 include extended casting decks fore and aft, two 16-gallon livewells with a four-pump system with pumpout and a MotorGuide 24 volt Tour Edition foot-controlled trolling motor with Gator Mount.

The aerodynamic rounded console includes a functional more visible dash panel, competition series gauges and black vinyl wrap automotive styling throughout the interior of the boat. Built in coolers and tilt hydraulic steering are standard features on the ZX200. The interior light package illuminates rod and storage boxes as well as live wells. Other standard features ZX200- include tinted windscreen, stainless steel handrails and pull-up cleats, gas-assisted lifts on doors, three battery boxes, spare tire and carrier and much more.

Like all Skeeter ZX Series bass boats, the ZX200 is engineered and built for tournament fishing, made with X-TREME composite construction for unmatched strength and durability. Hydrodynamically designed precision-engineered hulls provide super responsive maneuverability and Skeeter's legendary smooth, dry ride. The latest electronics are rigged on the ZX200 at the factory,, including: Dual Pro battery chargers, Zercom depth monitors and MotorGuide trolling motors, plus the performance and prestige of legendary Yamaha power.

Factory installed Pinpoint Network cables allow easy installation of Pinpoint Sonars on the bow and console. The overall length of the ZX200 on the Skeeter Deluxe Tandem Axle Tube Trailer is 25' 9" or 22' 7" with the optional detachable tongue trailer. On the trailer, the total weight is 1,630 pounds with a maximum weight capacity of 1,484 pounds. Maximum person capacity is six with a combined weight limit of 900 pounds and the dual gas tanks hold 50 gallons for hours of high speed cruising. Each trailer is equipped with ratchet tie-downs and transom saver.
