By Mike GridleySerious about your fishing? Then Lund is serious about your boat. This

year, it reintroduces the Pro-V 1775 IFS, which joins the 2075 and 1975 along with the all-new 1875. Without ticking off too many items on the options list, the 1775 is ready to fish as fast as you can launch it from its Shoreland’r trailer. At 17 feet 10 inches long with a swing tongue, the 1775 is an ideal trailering package that fits in a standard garage.

The recessed deck design creates a feeling of security when working lines forward. The bow mounting pad is set to accept a trolling motor and both the bow and aft casting platforms have prewired 12/24 volt plug-ins.

Under the forward casting platform, you will find two deep storage lockers and a 28-inch, 12-gallon livewell. Additional gear can be tucked away in the front of the passenger console. Under the bow platform there’s a lockable rod locker with ten 7-foot long tubes. Hidden away under the rod locker, ideally placed on the 1775’s centreline, is the storage compartment for the trolling motor battery.

The boat’s 75-inch beam provides plenty of room for moving around. Standard seating is three Lund Pro Ride pedestal seats with six seat bases, four in the cockpit and one to both fore and aft.

The dual consoles and walk through windshield will provide great protection on a cool day when this rig exceeds 40 mph with its Mercury 115. The helm is clean and features chrome bezelled Mercury gauges, while the passenger console has a lockable locker. Additional storage can be found below the locker and in both gunwales.

Aft is the standard casting platform, versus the optional flip-up seats and deck extension. Tucked under the deck is a 40-inch, 18-gallon livewell with drop-in bait station and a storage locker.

Underway, the Lund 1775 had no surprises. As always, the Lund IPS2 (Integrated Power Strake) aluminum hull tracked and handled like the pro it is. While maximum horsepower is 150, the Mercury 115 four stroke pushed the Pro-V to a top speed of 42.8 mph and cruised at a comfortable 25 mph at 4000 rpm.
