Striper 200 CC

The Striper 200CC boasts one-piece hand-laid composite stringer system construction for a solid ride and reduced vibration. The hull’s V-Trac™ hull design provides maximum steering control and minimizes shaking and porpoising. The 200CC’s large six-inch chine area offers improved handling, stability and control. Built in Little Falls, Minnesota, the 20-foot, 1-inch long boat comes with Mercury, Evinrude or Yamaha outboards from 115 to 200 hp, and a 91-gallon fuel tank offers ample range. In the aft cockpit, battery and pump access is under the removable starboard jump seat, and when the seat is removed, the additional six inches puts you closer to the fish-fighting action. To port is a 16-gallon baitwell station with cutting-board lid, and forward is an additional jump seat. Transom options include a bait prep table or center transom flip-up seat with backrest. Two large, 12-gallon macerator fish boxes are port and starboard in the cockpit floor that maximize space unique to a 20-foot center console. The dash features space for two 10-inch monitors, a stainless-steel steering wheel with turning knob, tall windscreen, and a 12-volt receiver. The lockable center-console compartment is standard with storage for your gear or an optional portable head. (320) 632-5481;
