G3 Boats' New HP190 Special Edition Leads the Pack

With Welded All Aluminum Hull, Floor and Deck Construction

by: Blue Heron Communications,

(09/06/2001 - LEBANON, MO.) The new HP190 Special Edition high performance bass boat from G3 gives aluminum bass boats a bold and distinctive look other manufacturers only dream about. Two-tone black and platinum paint, Special Edition graphics, bonus features and a 175 horsepower rating make the HP190 Special Edition feel like a family member.

With all aluminum materials for the hull, floor and deck and welded construction from bow to transom, these boats won't rattle apart even in the roughest conditions. The high performance pad hull jumps out of the hole quickly and easily achieves speeds of over 60 mph.

The HP 190 Special Edition is available in single or dual console models. The 90-inch beam creates a front casting deck large enough for two anglers. Under the front deck lids are two rod lockers with built in rod storage tubes plus two roomy front deck storage compartments to stow gear and tackle. The Special Edition includes a step for the front deck with storage access that extends the length of the deck.

The back deck incorporates two lockable storage bins and full access to the gas tank/battery compartment. New style deluxe upholstered bucket style seating holds three anglers with built-in storage under press-fit hinged seats. Also standard on the Special Edition are the Model 767 MotorGuide foot-operated trolling motor with 67 pound thrust, Dual Pro battery charger with separate L.E.D. indicator panel and plug-in.

Anglers can keep fish alive all day with the divided rear deck 19-gallon livewell and livewell control system. Deluxe upholstered pinch-less fold down fishing seats with pin bases and pedestals are located on both the front and back decks.

A Zercom CID-40 flasher, tachometer, speedometer, trim gauge and fuel gauge are placed at an easy to read location in the cockpit command center. The Special Edition console includes a touch-pad switch panel to operate the bilge, livewells, accessories and horn. The tinted console windshield directs rain, wind and bugs out of the driver's face and that of the passenger on double console models. Tilt steering and dual cable non-feedback components keep the driver in control.

The 19-foot HP190 Special Edition is delivered with the G3 Custom powder coated trailer with 14-inch mag wheels, chrome step pads, swing away tongue, recessed amber lighting, pin stripping, transom saver and tie downs. The polyurethane two component paint finish resists fading, cracking or chipping. For convenience, the HP190 Special Edition features bow and stern lights, rod strap tie-downs, three trim switch locations, heavy duty bilge pump, stainless steel prop, battery trays, four cleats and 27 gallon built in fuel tank.

Like all G3 boats, HP Special Edition models are powered by Yamaha outboard engines. Buyers of a G3 boat, motor and trailer package also receive the G3 advantage package that includes free resident fishing licenses for the buyer for three years.
