Family and Fishing oriented fun!

The ultra-sleek, ultra-fast, all-welded Stinger® Series is changing the way experienced anglers think about aluminum bass boats. For the best value in multi-species fishing, you can’t beat the Skorpion™ and Stryker™ fish-ready packages from Lowe. Specially designed by bass, crappie and multi-species anglers, these advanced designs are more stable and run better with lesser horsepower outboards and heavier fourstrokes. When you’re done landing schools of panfish, store all of your gear in the lockable storage compartments or under the driver and passenger seats.

Introducing the aluminum bass boat heavyweight champ - the all-new Stinger 178. It is designed to have best-in-class features that deliver more fish-fighting deck space, more fishing features, and impressive horsepower. The Stinger 178 features a super-wide 94 in. beam to provide 75 sq. ft. of fish-fighting space. A top-rated 90 horsepower outboard get’s you to the fish fast and can handle higher speeds, greater stresses, and bigger fishing action. A premium fiberglass console with metal flake finish includes a huge storage space for gear and lure trays. Angler centric seats are more usable and comfortable than ever for longer days on the water. Topped with lockable rod storage with tubes, 2 livewells, Lowrance fishfinder and MotorGuide tolling motor, this is the serious tournament-style bass boat designed to knockout the competition.
