Stinger 178

The Lowe Stinger 178 finds the perfect balance between serious fishability and best-in-class features. From providing a super-stable fishing platform to super-fast hole shots — not to mention sleek styling upgrades inside and out — it’s the midsize bass boat that offers it all. The Stinger 178 features a wide 94" beam to provide over 70 square feet of fish-fighting space. An industry-leading 90 horsepower Mercury outboard gets you to your fishing spot fast and can handle higher speeds, greater stresses, and bigger fishing action than the competitors. A premium metal flake fiberglass console with red backlit console includes a huge storage space for gear and lure trays. Tournament-style seats are more usable and comfortable than ever for longer days on the water. Complete with lockable rod storage, two livewells, a Lowrance fishfinder and a MotorGuide trolling motor, this is the serious tournament-style bass boat designed to outperform the competition.

Limited Warranty

Lowe Boats is respected for taking its warranty obligations to you very seriously. We are also well known for highly dependable and trouble-free products. However should a warranty issue occur, our goal is to make your warranty experience as hassle-free as possible and get you back on the water as quickly as possible.

Lowe will repair or replace any structural defect in material or workmanship in the hull seams reported during original purchaser's ownership.

Lowe will repair or replace a defect in any other part of the hull reported within (10) years of the date of delivery to the original purchaser, following a pro rated schedule.

Your Lowe dealer can provide complete warranty information for all accessories & components not manufactured by Lowe for (3) year.

Lowe boat warranties are transferable through your local Lowe dealer adding to the resale value of your boat. The warranty period begins on the original owner’s new boat purchase date. If the boat is sold during its warranty period, the standard component warranty coverage and prorated 10 year warranty coverage will carry over to the new owner once the warranty is transferred through an authorized Lowe dealer. Limitations and restrictions apply. See your local Lowe dealer for details.

See your Lowe dealer or contact the Lowe Customer Service Department for a complete copy of the Lowe Boats Lifetime limited product warranty. Transferability applies to 2016 and newer fishing boats.
