With a 225 horsepower capacity, the 20-foot, 2-inch long, 92-inch wide ZX 202L is the choice boat of Skeeter professional fishermen, but with the new fiberglass deck. Big, powerful and fast, the ZX 202L effectively covers the large bodies of waters fished by the pros but still allows for excellent maneuverability whether inshore or in coves and channels.
