Larson Boat 2018 400

May 29, 2018

Larson Boat Group is excited to reveal several updates to its four boat brands—Larson Escape, Larson, Larson FX and Striper—for the 2019 model year. These updates range from new aesthetics to improved onboard amenities to performance enhancements and more. 

“The 2019 model year is going to be a big one for all of our brands,” said Rob Parmentier, president of Larson Boats. “We’re energized by the changes to our boats that will lead to better performance, increased comfort and more eye-catching designs.” 

Larson Escape pontoons’ two series—the RT and TTT—feature dozens of interior and exterior aesthetic changes. For 2019, owners have a new color choice of Anthracite in addition to the existing Red, Blue, White or Black options. The exterior graphics have also changed to enhance the profile lines of both series. To amp up the color palette and attract boaters who might be moving from a runabout to a pontoon, the RT-R features vibrant and bright accent color options (Kiwi, Citrus or Impulse Blue). All three Escape series contain flush-mount electronics for a sleeker console, and the RT and TTT benefit from new Mercury FourStroke power. The interior upholstery materials and designs are new for 2019 with enhanced top-stitching, new armrests, buttresses and built-in headrests (TTT only). 

Larson Boats have received vast changes to their graphic color options, adding an extra punch to match their sportboat-like performance. The LX Series comes with three new graphics packages for 2019: Standard, Sport and LSR; and the LXH Series has a new Sport graphics package. The LX’s LSR Package and LXH’s Sport Package offer bold colors with an edgy design that will turn heads on the water. 

Larson Boat Group’s two fishing boat brands also have fresh looks and onboard amenities. The Larson FX has new graphics that continue to allow owners to place eight different gel colors in five different locations to create boat that is unique to them. All foredeck storage units come with friction hinges to keep lids open until manually shut, adding onboard convenience for busy fishermen. Striper and Larson FX models will benefit from Mercury’s new FourStroke outboard motor line-up, and Striper now offers an optional ski tow pylon for anglers who want to use their boat for more than just fishing. 

“Larson Boat Group has always believed in constantly improving our product,” Parmentier said. “The changes for 2019 reflect the excitement we have for the future of our boat brands, as well as the commitment we have to making our boats ever better for owners.”

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
