SX Tournament Series From Skeeter

Offers Ideal Mix of Fishability Features For Anglers


(10/05/2001 - Kilgore, TX) Skeeter Boats' SX Tournament Series offers Skeeter's legendary fishability in a line of boats priced to get anglers on the water fast. For those anglers, the SX200, SX190, SX180 and SX170 offer a full complement of fishing amenities to appeal to tournament fisherman.

"When we took a look at our line of tournament-class bass boats, we realized there was a segment of anglers who demand full scale features in proportionate packages," said Dean Burnett, National Sales Manager and Marketing Director for Skeeter. "This SX Tournament line of boats is a club tournament fisherman's dream."

"For the SX Tournament family, we use our X-TREME composite technology in the transom and stringer system for added durability. With Yamaha outboard power up to 200 horsepower on the SX200, the SX Tournament family's on-the-water performance is top of the line."

Some of the numerous standard features on all four SX Tournament models include:

    
  • Two built-in, retractable Rod Staze keep gear stowed while underway. 
  • High-Performance Cockpit Command Center (with tachometer, speedometer, fuel gauge, trim gauge, horn, tinted windshield and 12-volt accessory outlet) keeps the driver informed of the boat's operation. 
  • A dash-mounted Teleflex TFXIDF Flasher with water temp readout and a rear transducer lets anglers see where the fish are hiding. 
  • Dual-cable non-feedback steering on SX200 and SX190 and single-cable non-feedback steering on SX180 and SX170 for minimum effort in driving. 
  • Bow panel with trolling motor power receptacle and trim switch for controlling the 67-lbs. thrust, foot-operated MotorGuide 764 Tour Edition trolling motor with Little Gator mount on the SX200 and SX190. A 52-lbs. thrust, foot-operated MotorGuide 752 with a Little Gator mount is standard on the SX180 and SX170. 
  • 6-gauge trolling motor wiring system ensures a strong electrical current is available to the trolling motor. 
  • Three battery trays on the SX200 and SX190 and two on the SX180 and SX170 help ensure plenty of juice to run the boat's electronics while still providing enough power to start the engine at the end of the day. 
  • Fishing Chair with 13" fixed-height extension and bike seat with adjustable pole offer added comfort while fishing. 
  • Oversized bow and stern casting decks allow anglers to cast without worry. 
  • Livewell system featuring independent Fill, Recirculate and Drain modes and adjustable livewell pump timer keeps fish alive for weigh-in. 
  • Built-in in-floor cooler on the SX200 and SX190 keep cool drinks close at hand.
