With Serious Fishability
New for 2011, the F165T Fishing Machine® is a rugged, all-welded, back-to-basics boat designed for anglers looking for maximum fishability at a bargain price. Standard components include: full-carpeting, a Mercury® 25hp, 4-stroke outboard and a custom-fit, painted bunk trailer. Fishing features include a 43.5" wide, 23 gallon bow livewell with removable baitwell and super-reliable Flow-Rite plumbing. The FM165T also includes: a 7' in-floor rod/gear locker, roomy bow-deck storage box, side gunnel storage compartments, driver's seat, one movable pedestal fishing seat and four seat bases.
While value priced, this purpose-built boat is dedicated to serious fishing. The extra-wide 70.5" bottom and 82" beam provide more usable space inside the boat for larger storage compartments and livewells, as well as larger casting decks. Its renowned V-Tech hull is designed to slice through nasty chop while its reverse chines provide an aggressive bite for precise handling and a smooth, dry ride. To ensure years of trouble-free operation, the FM165T features PowerGrid rib and stringer construction with IronClad pressure-treated plywood decks, all backed by our Lifetime Limited Warranty.
Important options include: Your choice of Mercury® outboard power ( up to 50 hp), W55 MotorGuide wireless or Minn Kota PD55 trolling motor, Lowrance X50DS dual search fishfinder, additional pedestal fishing seats, a custom-fit canvas mooring cover and a galvanized trailer upgrade.
Lowe factory packaged boats are available with various horsepower Mercury outboards. See charts for complete details.
