Default New Tyee Opinions

Gentlemen.......I am shopping for a new boat for fishing and family (4) fun. I think I have ruled out the Lund Crossover 1875 and have it narrowed down to the Lund Tyee 1800 and 1900.

Other than being one foot longer and 3 inches wider, they seem to be identical.
The 1800 would have a new 150 hp Mercury four stroke on a single axle trailer.
The 1900 would have a 200 hp Verado on a tandom axle trailer.

The 1900 is roughly 5 to 6K more expensive.

Does anybody have real world experience on these boats that wish they would have gone with a different choice?
Share your two cents regarding other things to consider when narrowing down the choice.
Also, Roller vs Bunk?
Sincerely,
gdh

Default I say get 1900 Lund Tyee

I like bunk trailer and have no experience with rollers. I do know rollers can mess up hulls on riveted boats! Would be dream to have 1900 with 250 Verado, HDS10,electric down riggers, LED lighting inside,Yamaha 9.9 kicker, 101 Minnkota Ipilot motor with those huge battery banks cost $800 each. Spending $60k on boat is not in my future unless I win lottery lol.

Go big or go home!! Nature abhors a void....in time you'll fill every cranny and wish you had more. Trailer with lots of rollers. Ramps now a days with water levels require your trailer way in the water. With rollers, let the transom touch and pop it of with a shove. Get a RC 30 Power Wench with remote and bring it on the trailer with a push of a button. Some of the best video footage can be had at the boat launch watching guys do the tight rope walk along the trailer frame with cable in hand or standing on a moss cover cement ramp trying to hook up. IMHO

Default New Tyee Opinions

I bought a 2013 Tyee last year at this time. I decided to go with the 1900 over the 1800 after sitting in both of them. I made the decision to go with the 1900 as I often have 4 or 5 in the boat. Good luck with your purchase.

I just bought a brand new 1900 Tyee. I sat in the 1800 and the sales guy told me the foot length is all in the cabin, not in the bow. I'm convinced he didn't know what he was talking about. I'm pretty sure there were a few extra inches in the bow. That was a big driver of my decision to go with the 1900. Also, I know 5 years from now, I'm not going to be thinking about the $5 grand, I'll be thinking about how much I love all the room in my boat.

For what it's worth.....

Also, I went with a tandem axle roller trailer. I think that's really a "whatever your old man always had" kind of thing.....at least that's what it was for me, anyway.

Default 1900 vs 1800

Just my two cents. I have owned both 1850's and 1950's, but not 1900/1800. The 1800/1900 are much lighter than the 1850/1950's, but I think the comparisons are still relevant.
The 1900 will ride much better in big water than the 1800. The 1900 with the 200 will perform much better with a big load than the 1800 with the 150. When you go to sell, the demand for a used 1900 will be much stronger than for the 1800 (at least that is what has happened with 1950/1850's over the past four years.) Like me, I think a lot of people buy the 1800/1850 and later wish they had gone with the 1900/1950.
If you go with the 1800 consider getting the dual axle trailer. You can go down the road with a ton of stuff in the boat and not have to worry about overloading. I would go with bunks--never have to worry about going braindead and dropping the boat.
Good luck!

Default Thanks Guys

Thank you for sharing your experiences. The dealer is pushing a roller trailer because of ease of launch into shallow water but like millelacskk, commented above ((I think that's really a "whatever your old man always had" kind of thing.)) My dad loves his bunk.

Anymore 1800, 1900, or Crossover owners out there with some more insights into their boat choice?

Default Info

Now Im not a Owner, but I sell alot of Tyees in a year.....When Lund took away the 1850 we saw a Huge Number of sales with the 1900 Tyee, its simply a Perfect Layout, Runs AWESOME with a 3liter 150 Merc 4stroke, and is priced not too bad.....I priced identical 1800 and 1900s same options fully rigged, their is a $3228 difference both with Tandem Bunks, both with 150 Merc 4stroke, the 1800 is kind of small for a Full Sized family....But that depends on you......Dont listen to EVERYONE stating the 200 vs 150, yes the 200 Opti is faster and better hole shot, but the 200 Verado is NOT.....Since it weighs more it seems that the weight makes up for the HP, and I dont care what anyone says the 150 3liter Merc 4stroke is a Very Strong 150hp......

I bought a new 1800 Tyee last year and I LOVE IT. 90% of the time its just the wife and I plenty of room for that. If you were fishing 4 alot I would definitely step up to the 1900.
