Lets talk Bass Trackers
As some of y’all know I am selling my current boat and moving over to the bassboat style of vessel.
What can current Tracker Owners tell me about their boats?
I am lookin at the 175 Pro Team or a similar sized Tracker. Want it to be small enough to launch solo and still be fuel efficient. Im thinking 17ft and 60 4 stroke will be my ceiling or close to it
Just wanted to get a discussion going to ID some Tracker owners, probably jump onto Ricks again here soon before I head to Tracker Marine.
Also can anyone speak to the benefit of buying new vs used? I am tempted to buy new just so I can have the peace of mind of warranty.
Thankssometimes you think you have true love and then you catch the early flight home from San Diego

For comparison sake I would look at a G3 with a Yamaha, talk to Rooster and he can hook you up. Love my G3/Yamaha.

No experience with either, but you could use this one in both freshwater and the salt. My next boat will definitely be one that can be used at the coast without fear of completely trashing it.

That's how I started...17' aluminum with 60HP 4-stroke. I looked at the G3, the Basstracker, the Alumacraft and ultimately chose the Crestliner VT-17. For me it came down between the Tracker and the Crestliner. I went with the Crestliner because they made a great deal as they were just introducing that brand to replace what was the Triton VT-17 before. The Crestliner is all aluminum with no wood. It had an upgraded trolling motor and electronics. And lastly because it had a galvanized trailer and I put mine in the salt. I chose new for the same reasons you mentioned and would probably do the same again. I would have had no problem choosing the Tracker but the Crestliner was just a better deal. I put 120 hours on that boat in 2 years, did not have a single problem and sold it two years later for 75% of what I paid for it. Wind was always an issue for me as the boat is light and gets blown around easily. I also learned that I liked salt water fishing enough to warrant a bay boat. But I really miss the ease at which I could just hitch up from my garage and head to the lake. Now I have to go pick up the boat and return it to storage every time I go. That adds a minimum hour to my round-trip each outing.

You can launch a 21 ft VESSEL solo as well, more room to party.
