July 17, 2019 – Skeeter introduced today the all-new FXR, the latest addition to the company’s premier bass boat line. Powered by the award-winning Yamaha V MAX SHO® 250 four-stroke outboard, the FXR redefines the standard. As a leader in performance fishing boats, Skeeter went the distance to create a boat that is packed with features, designed to create more room, increased fishability, and unmatched performance.
“At Skeeter, we strive to provide the ultimate fishing boat to our consumers,” said Jeff Stone, Sr. Vice President, Skeeter Boats. “After testing, revising, and studying volumes of data, we’ve assembled the ultimate blend of precision, engineering and industry leading-edge technology within the new FXR. This boat will change the way anglers’ fish and make their time on the water even more productive.”
There are two models, the FXR20 which measures 20 feet, four inches and the FXR21, which comes in at 21 feet, four inches. The FXR boasts an all new hull design as well as a larger and wider cockpit, deck, and bow allowing for greater fishability. The revolutionary hull design provides a smooth rough water ride, excellent stability, exceptional maneuverability, and an overall enhanced performance. The FXR also features a new look, with aggressive hull styling, 3-D accenting and style lines reflecting Skeeter’s heritage.
In the cockpit, performance designed seats give more support around the thighs and increased bolstering for upper and lower back support. The rear bilge access compartment has a new split-lid design and raised battery shelf for easy maintenance access.
The FXR comes standard with a SkeeterBuilt® tandem axel, Tuff-coated trailer with fiberglass-matched fenders, custom 18-inch wheels, a Fulton® F2 Jack and Winch and LED Lighting.
The FXR is scheduled for distribution to dealers in August. It is backed by a three-year Bow-to-Stern Component Limited Warranty and industry-leading Lifetime Limited Structural boat and trailer warranty. Customers should contact authorized Skeeter dealers for more information.
