Lund Boats has taken the wraps off its new-for-2015 model, the 2275 Baron, a craft the company describes as the ‘ultimate big water ride’.
One of eight newly engineered models, the Baron measures 22 feet 9 inches long and has an expansive 102 inch beam, enough says Lund to carry a starting football line-up, plus the coach!
The Baron’s dual-purpose bow converts from a decked-out fishing platform to a comfortable bow rider seating area for four. In the cockpit area there are three rows of two seat bases, plus two flip-up seats in the rear for even more capacity. In total, the boat can accommodate 12 people..
The rod storage on the latest Baron has been enhanced with a centre locker for five 9-foot rods and five 8-foot 6-inch rods. There’s also a port rod locker that houses rods up to 10 feet. Add in the increased bow and side storage, two waterproof storage containers and the oversized, aerated 38-inch, 24-gallon aft livewell, and the Baron looks every bit the ultimate big water fishing boat.
Additional features include an integrated four-step boarding ladder, a drinks cooler, an Integrated canvas top hider, room for a wakeboard and skis and an integrated rear ski pylon option.
But it’s perhaps Lund’s patented hull construction that matters most. “The 2275 Baron boasts the best big water aluminum hull ever built,” says Rory Wiebe, Lund Boats’ Product Manager. “We use 5052 H 34 aluminum, an amazing hull material that provides the perfect balance between strength, weight, hardness and flexibility.
“The Baron’s IPS2 hull is designed to deliver clean water to the motor and provide fantastic cornering and control. Our patented power strakes and rails funnel water down and away to keep you dry.
