 For 2017, Triton Boats, a leading manufacturer of premium fiberglass and aluminum fishing boats, has doubled the number of aluminum models in its fishing, hunting and utility boat lineup with the introduction of 11 versatile new models. The company's greatly expanded aluminum lineup now means virtually every outdoorsman should find the ideal boat for whatever outdoor adventure awaits them at an authorized Triton Boats dealer.

The 2017 additions to the Triton aluminum boat stable include three new tiller-steer all-welded flatbottom jon boats, and a new all-welded 20-foot center console model (all prices are MSRP in U.S. dollars and do not include taxes, title,  dealer prep, destination charges or options, so actual dealer price may vary.):

Triton 1448 Jon - If you're looking for a compact yet super-rugged aluminum boat for fishing, waterfowl hunting or all-around adventuring, this 14-footer fills the bill. Its tough .100-gauge welded hull is right at home in rocky rivers and stump-filled lakes, and its wide 48-inch bottom and 72-inch beam means extra stability and interior room. It's priced at $2,799, boat only.

Triton 1648 Jon - This all-welded 16 foot 1 inch jon also has a 48-inch bottom and 72-inch beam and can easily tote four people and all their gear ($2,999, boat only).

This hardcore boat is ideal for bigger rivers and lakes, can carry eight people and a mountain of gear, and can be easily customized to your exact style of fishing or hunting ($3,999, boat only).

Triton 2072 CC - This massive all-welded utility boat spans 21 feet 5 inches with a 99-inch beam and 72-inch bottom! The standup center console allows superior visibility, especially when running in shallow rivers. Features roomy front and rear casting decks, integrated livewell with cushioned lid, and plenty of storage ($20,995 with 90 EXLPT Mercury four-stroke outboard and trailer).

For 2017, Triton also introduces two unique new Sportsman aluminum models targeted specifically to the fast-growing sport of bowfishing:

The Triton 1862 Sportsman package includes a Minn Kota 45 lb. trolling motor, 40 Mercury ELPT four-stroke outboard and trailer ($19,995).

Triton 2072 Sportsman - You'll dominate rough bowfishing tournaments in our biggest bowfishing boat! Like the 1862 Sportsman, this all-welded center console sports our unique elevated and removable shooting deck and removable generator-powered light kit.
