Lund Boats introduced the new 208 Pro-V GL fiberglass tiller driven fishing boat for 2014. The boat features the largest platform and available horsepower rating of its kind in the industry.
While progressive steering-wheel boats remain popular, Lund Product Manager Rory Wiebe has recently noted a resurgence in demand for back-trolling style tiller boats. The 208 Pro-V GL Tiller represents the next generation of fiberglass tillers—including the largest fishable platforms and largest available engines.
“Even at the design table, fishing is never far from our minds,” Wiebe admits. “We’re a tight-knit group—anglers and engineers— who work closely with the best anglers in the country. The Lindners, Gary Roach, Ted Takasaki, and numerous others continue to provide keen ideas and design input that we take from the water to concept, and then back to the water again.”
The 208 Pro-V GL Tiller is built on Lund’s IPS2 fiberglass hull. At 20-feet, 8-inches in length, and rated for up to a 250-hp Mercury outboard, this new back-troller handles and maneuvers effortlessly, thanks to standard power tilt steering.
Inside the 208 Pro-V GL Tiller, you have an array of fishing features: a specially designed Tackle Storage Center, Lockable Command Console designed to house and protect the latest in wide-screen sonar/GPS mapping units, cargo nets all around, integrated tool and cup holders, and an optimized Center Rod Storage System with room for up to eleven, 7- to 8-foot rods.
