Brunswick Corporation : Lund Introduces New Mod-V 2017 Renegade Series

                  A Mod-V fishing boat designed to turn heads
                        in the fishing boat marketplace.

New York Mills, Minn. (Oct. 21, 2016) - A high-end Mod-V fishing boat, complete
with Lund's famous IPS hull for superior performance and stability, Lund Boats
introduces the 2017 Renegade.

This wood-free boat was designed for the angler who refuses to compromise on his
quest for big fish. Whether his passion leads him to lesser known, remote
fisheries or public waterways teeming with opportunity, the Renegade provides a
functional and intelligently designed fishing boat to meet his biggest demands.
The basics
The Lund Renegade comes in two models: the 1775, which measures 17 feet,
9 inches and is rated for a 90-horsepower engine, and the 1875, which measures
18 feet, 9 inches and is rated for a 115-horsepower engine.

This series offers a model for both bass and crappie anglers. While each model
boasts a roomy 95-inch beam and 22-gallon fuel capacity, the primary difference
between the two is found in the livewell placement.

In each bass model, anglers enjoy a 35-inch, 22-gallon aft livewell located
behind the seats that is large enough for even the most successful days on the

The crappie models are designed with two additional seat bases in the bow, and a
12-gallon bow livewell that's easily accessible from the casting deck. When
planning on a big fish fry of crappie or other panfish species, anglers will
appreciate the convenience of the livewell location. Not only does it save steps
throughout the day, but it also allows them to quickly box their catch, get back
to the action and maintain boat position.

Anglers are renowned tackle junkies; we can never have enough. Choosing a boat
with a practical and spacious storage layout is of the utmost importance. Gone
are the days of tripping over your fishing gear, snapping rod tips and digging
through piles of soft plastics to find the hot color - if you're buying a new
boat, you expect it to provide a viable solution to such common problems.

The Renegade models are designed with optimal storage in mind. The 1775's port
side bow rod locker holds rods up to 8 feet in length, and the 1875 holds rods
up to 9 feet. The custom-fitted internal tubes keep rods organized and safe.

The middle compartment of the casting deck is a perfect place to store tackle
trays filled with must-have fishing gear. It's easy to access, and gives anglers
plenty of room to sit to the side - with the compartment open - and quickly rig
tackle during a day of fishing. The starboard storage compartment is an
excellent place to store soft plastics and extra outerwear or gear.

In the cockpit area, there's a hidden storage system beneath the roomy bench
seats of the Renegade; anglers won't be able to tell it's there until it's
needed. Simply flip up the seats, and there's a place to store accessories such
as culling beams, livewell treatment and spools of line.

In the back of the Renegade, both co-anglers and boat owners will enjoy two
large storage compartments complete with drain plugs. Each compartment holds up
to six 3600 tackle trays, or offers plenty of space for extra drinks, snacks,
boat tools and rain gear.

The 2017 Renegade was built to handle the most abrupt movements and weight
shifts from multiple anglers. If you're going to spend the money on a brand new
fishing boat, you want one with more stability than that of a canoe.

The stationary stability of the Renegade is second to none.  We included our
patented IPS Hull with reverse chines, so the boat doesn't pitch dramatically
from one side to the other when weight is shifted. This is not only advantageous
for everyday fishing, but also for safety. Both boaters and passengers will feel
safe and secure while sharing the spacious front deck.

The oversized casting deck is a great feature of this boat as well, and perhaps
the most important to many anglers. Two grown men can easily fish from the front
deck without constant fear of flying treble hooks and tungsten.

The Renegade is incredibly responsive to even the slightest movement of the
trolling motor. When fishing shallow, backwater areas in search of skittish
bass, it easily maneuvers the skinny water with very minimal disturbance. We
were sure to pay close attention to the stealth of this boat throughout the
design process. Essentially, we wanted to ensure anglers could move about the
casting decks of the boat without spooking wary fish with loud footsteps. The
result is an impressively covert boat that excels in small water situations.

Featuring Lund's highly regarded IPS hull, the Renegade is designed with reverse
chines, a flat center pad and a full-length center keel. The results are an
excellent ride in several different ways.

With a 90-horsepower, four-stroke engine, the 1775 Renegade reaches a maximum
speed of 44 miles per hour at top-end, which is outstanding for an aluminum boat
of its size. The hole shot is quick and the bow drops quickly, giving the driver
a clear field of view for maximum safety.

Anglers will also be impressed by the bow lift of this boat. While many other
aluminum boats tend to plow, even with a fully trimmed motor, the Renegade's bow
lifts quickly and easily to increase acceleration and provide enhanced

The Renegade is an attractive boat that will turn heads at boat ramps throughout
the country. The lines are smooth, the colors are bold, and the modest Lund
graphics fit the flow of the boat excellently. Renegade features the beautiful
fiberglass console from our Pro V Bass model. The gauges are easy to read, while
the control panel switches are attractive, yet simple and straightforward.

The flip-up cleats also promote a clean look, but more importantly, stay out of
the way while flipping and landing fish to reduce inadvertent line tangles and

There's also an additional touch of bling with the integrated bow and aft LED
lighting. Whether you're night fishing or rigging tackle after hours, the lights
are extremely bright and allow for outstanding visibility in all situations.
When they're off, they hide in the Sport Trak groove so you can't even tell
they're there.

The Lund Renegade offers anglers everything they could ever want in a Mod-V
fishing boat. It fishes extremely well and has an intelligent layout that
performs well beyond industry standards for a boat of its size.
