(Thursday, March 09,2000 - KILGORE, Texas) The ultimate fishing machine is a catch phrase no longer. Redesigned for 2000 are Skeeter's flagship bass boats, the ZX202 and ZX185.

The most distinctive bass boats in the Skeeter line, the ZX202 and ZX185 are even more so for 2000. A new reshaped running surface allowing for more horsepower, new console and interior designs and new exterior graphics, all exclusive to these two models make them stand out more than a bikini in a barber shop.

Rated for a Yamaha 225 horsepower outboard, the ZX202 now rockets through the water while the ZX 185 is rated for a Yamaha 175. In addition, the ZX 185 now features twin 18 gallon gas tanks giving it better equilibrium in the water.

But it's when you step into the cockpit to fire up that Yamaha motor that you really start to notice what's new about these two beauties. With a newly engineered, more rounded console, a newly designed, more visible dash panel, new competition series gauges and black vinyl wrap automotive styling throughout the interior of the boat, driving and riding in a new ZX202 and ZX185 is like cutting across a lake in a luxury car. Consider them an SUV with a wake.

From a fishing standpoint, these Skeeter supermodels have rod organizing system in one of the rod lockers and a four-pump livewell system which doubles the pump capacity as well as efficiency of previous models.

And that's just the new stuff. Engineered and built for tournament fishing, the ZX series Skeeters are 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.

Fishability features include extended casting decks big enough to easily accommodate two anglers, ergonomically perfected cockpits and controls, roomy rod lockers, large storage, coolers, two state-of-the-art aerated livewells and much more.

These lavish lake dwellers are also loaded with the latest electronics, including the: Zercom real-time high-speed depth monitors, Dual Pro battery chargers and MotorGuide trolling motors - all backed by the performance and prestige of legendary Yamaha power.

Redesigned for 2000, the ultimate fishing machine is also redefined in 2000. Elegant and functional inside, sleek and powerful outside, these new Skeeter have the most elusive of elements - style. Welcome the ultimate fishing machine.
