Getting to see shiny new boats at a boat show is a given, but what about getting to take a test ride, and do it in sunny, warm weather during this frigid winter? That plus more is on the agenda at the 2020 Progressive Miami International Boat Show®.There you can see the updated lineup of Skeeter SX™ Bay Boats on land and water, including the all-new Fish and Family packages that are available with the SX2250. With the SX Bay Boats, you get eye-catching good looks that feature smooth-sided hulls in a strong single gel color with a selectable water stripe. Large emblems and console designators make these inshore saltwater beauties stand out even more.
The SX2550 is 28' 8" with a beam of 102" and a shallow draft of only 14". A 145-quart in-floor fish box with Macerator, deluxe leaning post with backrest and 80-quart Engel® cooler, a removable rear deck backrest and cushion, and a 76-gallon fuel system are just a few of the things you can expect to see onboard.Add the Fish or Family packages, and the value really builds on the SX2550. Both packages feature the Skeeter Torque Transfer System. This unique system transfers the vertical torque and energy from the engine to the stringer system in the bottom of the boat, virtually eliminating stress on the transom, deck and hull sides, while providing lift along the entire keel of the boat. Standard features with the Family Package include Fusion® Audio System with four speakers and blue-tinted underwater lights and a freshwater wash-down system. Shared by both packages are four upright and gunwale-mounted rod holders, a self-bailing cockpit, and Seastar® Tilt Hydraulic Steering. You can add an optional Skeeter-Built® Aluminum Trailer with Tandem Torsion Axles, 15" Galvanized Wheels, Dual Disc Brakes, Aluminum Fenders, Spare Tire, Swing-Tongue, Backup Lights, and Fulton® Two Speed Winch and Jack Stand.
This year’s event, conveniently scheduled during President’s Day weekend, is Feb. 13-16, 2020.
