Lund BoatsLund Boats, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC), and an industry leader in designing fishing boats with a reputation for performance and durability, has been awarded a 2022 Progressive® Insurance Minneapolis Boat Show® Innovation Award in the Aluminum Fishing Boat category for its redesigned Lund Renegade model.

The Innovation Award recognizes ground-breaking, new consumer marine products and honors manufacturers and suppliers who bring innovative products to the boating industry. This year’s program evaluated a pool of entries featuring outstanding products across aluminum fishing boats, fiberglass fishing boats and pontoon boats.

“We are honored to be recognized with the 2022 Innovation Award,” said Dan Anonen, Product Manager, Lund Boats. “The redesigned Renegade Series represents an innovative design within the bass boat category, offering exclusive, industry-first features designed to elevate the on-water experience.”

The judges praised Lund for its commitment to innovation. "The Lund Renegade takes a bass boat and makes it more family friendly without compromising fishing ability. Anytime you can enhance a boat's versatility, that's a bonus,” said Eric Colby, marine journalist and award judge.

The winning Renegade model features a redesigned Mod-V hull offering improved big-water performance and stability; the updated design also features two aft jump seats – an industry-first in the Mod-V bass boat category.

Available in three sizes – the refreshed 1775 and 1875 and all-new 1975 – the Renegade Mod-V is geared toward bass, crappie, and musky fishing. The Renegade features the industry-first four-seat cockpit design with two aft jump seats (available in the 1875 and 1975 models); a large bow and aft casting deck with ample storage; a redesigned Mod-V hull that is slightly sharper at the bow and flatter at the stern for a shallow draft and fast performance; water-resistant, gasketed rod, gear and tackle storage; a redesigned console with optimized electronics placement; and is powered by a 50 HP – 150 HP Mercury Marine outboard engine offering award-winning performance and durability.
