(Saturday, March 11,2000 - KILGORE, Texas) Built to live up to the Skeeter legend for rugged durability, unmatched fishability and lasting performance, the Skeeter ZX aluminum bass boat line is engineered with all the technology and craftsmanship as its fiberglass counterpart.

With over 30 years of aluminum boat building experience behind them and the toughest marine-grade aluminum and top-quality heavy-duty materials on them, these bass boats are simply an aluminum alternative to the traditional Skeeter bass boat.

The ZX aluminum boats feature all-welded X-TREME channel construction and true-performance pad hull designs, making them exceptionally fast, durable and easy to maneuver with the trademark Skeeter smooth, dry ride.

Each of the ZX models three sizes feature contour driver and passenger seats with removable center seat, an ergonomically designed cockpit command center, two fishing chairs with pedestals, a livewell control system, a divided rear aerated livewell, dual rack-and pinion steering, built-in under seat storage and roto molded storage boxes.

The Skeeter ZX19 is 19-feet long, 90-inches wide and can take a 150-horsepower engine and is equipped with a MotorGuide 767, foot-operated, 67-pounds thrust with a gator mount. The ZX18 is 18-feet long, 84-inches wide and has a 130-horsepower capacity while the ZX17 is 17-feet long, 79-inches wide and can be fitted with up to a 90-horsepower motor. The ZX18 and ZX17 have MotorGuide 752, foot-operated, 52-pound thrusts with gator mounts trolling motors. All three ZX series boats have a four person load capacity.

Legendary Skeeter technology, craftsmanship, durability and fishability make the ZX series the ultimate aluminum fishing machine.
