Lund Fiberglass Boats Are Here

Well folks, the floor plan is finally available for the 2008 Lund Fiberglass models.  I've been curious for a long time on how the floor plan would look.  That is, would the fiberglass models have the same looking floor plan as their aluminum models?  Part of me believed they would not and sure enough, they are different.  So my suspicion on the aluminum boats is true...they have more freedom in allowing storage space design because if they didn't the Lund fiberglass would have made their boats the same (after all, they are known for their excellent floor plans).

Here's a a couple links for comparison on the 20 foot dual console Lunds:  208 Pro-V GL vs. 2025 Pro-V IFS SE and for fun vs. Warrior's V203 Eagle

Here's a link to the full line of Lund's 2008 Models.  What stinks is Lund hasn't produced a tiller fiberglass yet so I can't compare a real man's boat.  Maybe next year!

Other Lund models are similar to Warrior and other fiberglass manufacturers.  You'll notice the floor plans are very similar.  Now that we can finally compare apples to apples the question becomes who has the advantage?  Oh the fun shall begin!!!

yea it's really not possible to build a fiberglass boat with as much storage space as an aluminum boat. The engineering for strength won't allow it.

A real man's boat?

Does that mean it comes standard with oar locks?

I figured that but I know a few people that like to rip on me and say how good their floor space is compared to other manufacturers.  Of course, they were comparing the Lund aluminum to similar fiberglass competitors.  I can rest knowing there is limitations!  Sure is wierd putting the next two words together...Lund Fiberglass.

I like how the 208 Pro-V GL Aft seats are more towards the center line of the boat. This allows you to have more room on the sides of the boat when trolling or jigging. Impressive boat.

The hull design looks similar to their aluminum so I'll assume they will be a more rough and wet ride compared to the warrior. I would imagine the price wont be any better than warrior or yarcraft. IMHO, Lunds are way way over priced.

3XGutshot,
I believe the 208 Pro V Gl with a 300hp Verado is north of 50k. The hull design is based off of their Aluminum boat hulls.

$50k for a Lund hull? Ridiculous to say the least.

Say, that also satisfies another argument in that people believed it was cheaper to make fiberglass.  If so, the suggested retail prices don't fall in line with that!
