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.
NOTE: Shown with optional SeaDek® floor liner.
