All the fiberglass boats are good......................as long as you don't beat on them. Some will take a beating better than others.

I will say this. Lund is obviously going to say they haven't had any issues, I think all manufactures would take that stance.


BUT! Come to a tournament and start to get to know people. You hear and see everything. Now I haven't seen anything first hand and haven't heard anything in about a year on Lund Transom issues, but you'd be surprised at number of transom issues you hear about that no one talks about. I personally have been a Lund guy all my life but that was until I learned a few things and talk to people. I personally would never buy one myself. This isn't just because of the so called transom issues.


Of the list of boats the OP put up which I believe was the Lund, Ranger and ZV21 from Nitro, the only one I would buy would be the Nitro. It isn't the detailed boat that everyone wants, but ya don't hear about to many issue with them or really any at all. And if they are, they're self induced which I only know of one lol.


A reason I run Skeeter..... ZERO problems. I would own a Warrior if money was no object.
Well after seeing this I might never consider a Nitro anymore. Anything man made can have an issue that does not make it bad. The Pinto had exploding gas tanks for a while but 3M of them were sold and people did not stop buying a Fords, Its kind of a dumb topic as just because some of whatever had a problem does not mean they all have a problem. Also when we hear about what someone said it gets changed from mouth to mouth, **** 5 people can witness an accident and within 30 minutes all have differences in the story to the cop taking the report. I know at least 10 owners of the 219 and 202 and none have had an issue nor have I so its just hype and hearsay unless you own one and had an experience hearsay is worthless that's why its not admissible in court because its just that hearsay.

Not quite accurate... Get into their specs compare: A 621 hull weighs 2400, a 219 weighs 3,000...

Compare tin cans for the same... A Starcraft Fishmaster 210 weighs 1598, a Lund 2075 Pro-V weighs 2150. Both are 20' 10" boats


You should be comparing a F-350 & Chevy 3500, not mustang.


Happy Fishing!!

Of all the fiberglass boats I've owned the Lunds have been the heaviest. But that weight also contributes to the ride, which some like & some don't. I've never had a problem with the Lunds I've owned.
