(Jun 11, 2015 - SPRINGFIELD, MO.)
Bowfishing fanatics need specialized equipment for making the most of the time they spend on the water. Tracker Marine Group is unveiling two new super tough, stable and roomy models of the proven GRIZZLY line at the bowfishing event of the year—the U.S. Open Bowfishing Championship and World’s Bowfishing Fair, held June 12-14 at the Bass Pro Shops store in Springfield, Missouri.
The GRIZZLY 2072 MVX Sportsman and GRIZZLY 1760 MVX Sportsman boat packages share the most advanced construction TRACKER Boats has offered in the GRIZZLY line. Both feature thick .190 aluminum flooring for added rigidity and a quieter ride. The seven-degree deadrise hull design provides better handling, more interior depth and a drier ride compared to other jon boat designs. Both boats have heavy-duty one-piece extruded aluminum gunnels for added strength and rigidity. The hulls are made of .100 5052 marine-grade aluminum with an all-aluminum box beam transom. Basically, you’re not going to find a stronger, better-made aluminum boat.
Both boats also feature an exclusive baked-on Forest Green powder-coat finish that will last through year after year of on-the-water adventures. Both are available with optional Woodland or Grassland camo finishes. You’ll also find the exclusive VERSATRACK accessory mounting channel in the gunnels. Both feature 40,000 lumens of intense LED lighting to illuminate your prey. Ample storage, rotomolded livewells, matching trailers featuring GALVASHIELD corrosion protection, Minn Kota trolling motors and Mercury Marine outboards make these boat packages some of the best values on the water.
The TRACKER GRIZZLY 1760 MVX Sportsman is a highly versatile bowfishing boat for beginner to advanced archers. It is 18' 5" in length, with an 84” beam, 60” bottom width and a Sure Tread™ non-skid interior. It is a great choice for bowfishing, duck hunting, fishing or any other hardcore activity on the water.
The TRACKER GRIZZLY 2072 MVX Sportsman is a whopping 21’ 5” in length with a 102” beam and is 72” wide across the bottom. It has a removable light kit with 8 super-bright (5K lumens each) LED spotlights. It has center console controls and is rated for 5 people, so your buddies can join you on your bowfishing excursions. It features a removable elevated bow shooting deck with railing, 3 seat pedestal bases, trolling motor access hatch and rubberized grip flooring throughout. It truly is the ultimate bowfishing boat.
As an added bonus, during the U.S. Open Bowfishing Championship and World’s Bowfishing Fair, TRACKER has special incentives, including a low APR for qualified buyers of either of the new boats as well as the existing TRACKER GRIZZLY 1860 MVX Sportsman model. If you order a 1760 Sportsman, you’ll also receive an Archenemy™ bowfishing combo kit when you take delivery. Order an 1860 Sportsman and get a 100MPH rain suit. Go for the big gun and order a 2072 Sportsman and you’ll receive both the Archenemy bowfishing combo kit and a 100MPH rain suit.
These quality-built boats are backed by the best warranty in aluminum boats—the TRACKER Promise. This five-year, bow-to-stern factory warranty also includes a three-year warranty on the powder-coat finish, factory-installed trolling motor and factory-installed fishfinder, a limited lifetime structural and deck warranty and full coverage during the warranty period with no prorating.
