2011 Lowe Fishing Machine 175 Fishability is critical, but if you can't get there comfortably, securely - and dry - then it's not a serious fishing boat. The FM175 is a serious fishboat with a deep-V hull, high freeboard and transom. Its V-Tech, hull is designed to run big water with ease and handle with precision. At rest, it's remarkably stable for its type and size. You and your partner can work around the boat in comfort, both forward and aft. Standard pre-rigged package includes your choice of Mercury outboard (up to 115 hp), MotorGuide WR55 trolling motor, Lowrance X50DS Fishfinder with temp, choice of two color coordinated exterior/interior schemes, acrylic/ABS molded console with tinted windshield, anti-feedback steering with soft grip wheel, full Teleflex instrumentation, 27 gallon built-in gas tank with in-dash gauge, 18 oz. stain resistant carpet and a painted bunk trailer w/ swing tongue.
The Fishing Machine Series are super-rugged, fully-equipped deep-Vs designed specifically for experienced anglers looking for maximum fishability. Tournament-class, standard components include a MotorGuide wireless trolling motor, Lowrance fish locator, Teleflex gauges, painted trailer with swing tongue, plus your choice of Mercury outboard. Fishing features include a 44" long, 23 gallon bow livewell with bait bucket and 14.5 gallon stern livewell (185 and 175) with timers and super-reliable Flow-Rite plumbing. The FM Series also includes a 7'6" rod locker, roomy in-deck storage compartments, driver's seat with slider and two movable pedestal fishing seats. Choose a vinyl floor for heavy-duty use or downrigger brackets for deep water action. To ensure years of trouble-free operation, all Lowe deep-v boats feature wood-free, all-welded, all-aluminum construction backed by our Lifetime Limited Warranty. Few boats measure up to this level of construction, performance and fishability for the money. (The 185 and 175 are now available as dual-console models with walk-thru windshields.)
