Stinger 188

The recently updated Lowe Stinger 188 is designed to custom-fit the way you fish for bass, down to the last detail. From the look of the upgraded red backlit console panel to the feel of its super-wide 94” beam under your feet, this legend was born to help you fish better. This all-aluminum champion is designed with best-in-class features including over 77 sq. ft. of fish-fighting space to keep you right in the action. With capacity for up to 115 horsepower, the Stinger 188 gets you on the fish fast, and thanks to durable Lowe construction, it can handle greater stresses and bigger fishing action than the competition. Premium fishing features include lockable rod storage with 8 tubes, aerated livewell, comfortable fold-down fishing seats, a MotorGuide X3 45FW trolling motor and more. Top it all off with a stylish fiberglass console with metal flake finish, tons of in-deck storage, and eye-catching red-tint accents, and you’ve got a formidable bass-fishing weapon.

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.
