The redesigned models also include an updated console for large or dual locators and increased storage for the utmost versatility. Additional features include:

            • Carpet-free interior

            • Increased max horsepower on 1675 and 1875

            • Improved livewell on 1675 and 1875

            • Expanded and improved storage

“The Alaskan has been a true workhorse for decades. The enhancements made were prioritized based on consumer feedback and enabled us to make a classic even better,” said Jeromie Johnston, president of Lund Boats. “Details like bubble seal storage, consoles that support modern electronics and a spacious cockpit combine with a legendary Lund hull to ensure the Alaskan remains an integral part of hunting and fishing excursions for years to come.”

The newly redesigned Alaskan models pack all the critical elements of a highly versatile boat at a mid-level price point with a starting MSRP of $34,511 USD. They are ideal for experienced or novice outdoor enthusiasts looking for a dependable boat with a layout that supports a wide range of applications.
