For 2010, Skeeter Products, Inc., manufacturer of Skeeter brand boats, complements its already launched ZX170 bass boat and SL1800 family sport model, with introduction of its WX1900 – a standout that brings a new level of styling, performance and functionality to Skeeter’s Deep-V Series line-up.
The new WX1900 increases Skeeter’s Deep-V Series offering to five models, including the WX2100, WX1990, WX1850 and the WX2000T “tiller.”
The WX1900 is perfect for the wide array of fishing conditions found throughout our nation’s northern and Midwestern waters. From the Great Lake to the Finger Lakes, fishing for walleye, smallmouth bass, pike, muskie and trout just got easier for both hard-core anglers and weekend warriors.
“We designed the WX1900 around a central concept – functionality,” says Skeeter’s National Sales Manager, Ben Jarrett. “Our Deep-V Series customers often face rough water, and even rougher weather conditions, leading us to design an entirely new running surface that gives the WX1900 a smooth, dry ride, yet does not compromise the midrange and top speeds that the Skeeter brand is well-known for,” says Jarrett.
Jarrett added that the WX1900 is rated for Yamaha’s F200 25” shaft four-stroke engine to maximize the design attributes of the boat’s new performance hull, but that the boat also runs excellent with Yamaha’s popular F150 four-stroke.
Sporting a 95” beam, and measuring in at 18’9” in length, the WX1900 has ample interior room for fishing and other on-the-water activities. An interior depth of 23.5” is perfect for choppy water, while the model’s 13” draft allows for easy access to the shallows.
The WX1900 comes standard with modular walk-through consoles; Skeeter tandem axle trailer with disc brakes, spare tire with carrier, swing-away tongue, ultra-silver wheels and torsion axles; two Humminbird 728 fish finders (bow and dash) with transducer and temperature probe, and a Minn Kota Terrova 24V, 60” shaft trolling motor with 80 lb. thrust, auto pilot, universal sonar and removable mount.
The dash features a Cockpit Command Center with push button custom gauges, including tachometer, volt, fuel, water pressure and trim. A 12 V accessory plug and tilt hydraulic steering are added comforts.
Plenty of storage can be found throughout the WX1900, including a built-in step/cooler, center rod box, side rod storage and shelf. With dual live-wells (bow and stern), and a rear bait-well, anglers have what they need for a full day on the water. A live-well control system with independent fill, recirculation and drain modes comes standard.
Passengers can ride and fish in comfort, as the driver’s chair features a locking swivel, seat slider and power adjustable pedestal. Two moveable passenger fishing chairs with power adjustable extension and locking swivel and two rear deck jump seats fit a maximum of six passengers.
A Minn Kota 15 amp x 3-battery charger with charging inlet and extension leads to the motor battery, 6 gauge tolling motor wiring system with 3 battery trays, interior lighting, auto/manual 800 GPH bilge pump, engine mount boarding ladder and Skeeter transom washer are performance and construction standards for every boater/angler.
The WX1900 can be upgraded with a host of options, including Yamaha Command Link, wrap-around windscreens, AM/FM stereo CD player, electronics packages from Lowrance or Humminbird, Oxygenator live-well aeration system, bike seat with power pedestal, ski tow bar and Yamaha kicker engine, among others.
