The new Renegade will showcase a redesigned Mod-V hull for better big-water performance and stability, as well as two new aft jump seats -- an industry first in the Mod-V bass boat category. The Mod-V hull design is specifically geared toward bass, crappie, and musky fishing and features a sharper bow and flatter stern for a shallow draft and better high-speed performance.
The new Renegades will be available in three sizes -- 1775, 1875, and the all-new 1975. All three models will carry a 95" beam. Other new features for 2022 will include the industry's first four-seat cockpit design with the aforementioned aft jump seats. The new lineup will also include large bow and aft casting decks with water-resistant and gasketed storage underneath, individual rod and tackle storage lockers, a 28 gallon (106 litre) livewell, and a redesigned console with new electronics.
Power options will include Mercury Marine outboards ranging from 50-150 horsepower. Lund is owned by Brunswick Corporation, who also own the Mercury brand.
“The redesigned 2022 Renegade Series represents a groundbreaking design within the bass boat category, offering exclusive features designed to elevate the on-water experience,” said Dan Anonen, Product Manager, Lund Boats. “We sought feedback from customers, pros, dealers and partners and couldn’t be more excited to bring the all-new Renegade Series to the marketplace as an industry pioneer in the Mod-V category.”
