Lowe Favorite 198


Shown with optional tandem trailer.

The Stinger 198 Favorite Edition is the fully-equipped, jaw-dropping, head-turning, fish-hammering package you’ve been waiting for. This is the all-welded aluminum boat that will put the “fiberglass is better” myth to bed for good. And with red and black Favorite Prostaff graphics, tinted windshield, and red LED lighting she’s a real looker too.

Accelerate and get on plane faster with the Mercury 150L Four Stroke outboard. Combining fuel efficiency with a 29-gallon fuel tank will let you stay out there longer doing what you love.

The Stinger’s huge, nearly 83 sq foot, fish-fighting deck, is covered with durable, shock-absorbing SeaDek flooring. Under that is plenty of storage including a locking center rod locker with 10 tubes for rods up to 8’6”.

Of course, the Favorite package comes absolutely loaded with premium fishing gear. TWO Humminbird fishfinder /chart plotters with built-in Bluetooth, one with GPS mapping. A Minn Kota Ultrex 80-MDI-IP Trolling Motor also with Bluetooth, a Minn Kota 8’ Red Talon Shallow Water Anchor to hold you on the fish when you find them, and a massive 30-gallon livewell to keep them in when you land ‘em.

As if all that wasn’t enough, the Stinger 198 Favorite comes with $2,500 worth of additional Favorite gear! Rods, reels, shirts, hats, even can coozies...

If you can’t catch fish with this tournament package, you probably can’t catch fish.

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.
