Big Storage & Platform
Lund 2025 Impact XS

Looking for a big water deep-V aluminum fishing boat that can also accommodate the entire family for fun days on the water? Then check out the 2025 Impact XS, an upgraded version of the 2018 innovation award-winning model (Minnesota Boat Show).

One of the great features of this model and what truly sets her apart from other Lund series, such as the Crossover and the Tyee, is her massive bow casting platform—it offers plenty of fish-fighting space as well as loads of conveniently located storage compartments. In the bow, you’ll also find an 11-gallon livewell and cargo nets that are great to store easy-to-reach accessories.

This model also delivers some of the benefits you would find in the Pro-V series but at a more affordable price point. It’s also not so much a pure tourney boat like the V, making it more comfortable and more popular with the rest of the family.

Standard features include the port rod storage and the center rod locker, hydraulic steering with tilt, handy port and starboard under console tackle drawers, four seats as well as two rear jump seats that fold down to offer you a fully functioning large aft casting platform.

There’s also a 24-gallon aft livewell, the SportTrak accessory brackets for mounting and relocating your fishing accessories anywhere you’d like on the side of your boat, and a top hider to keep the sport top out of the way but still within easy reach for sunny and rainy days.

The 2025 Impact XS boasts a walk-through windshield layout and Lund’s IPS2 hull design, which we love and expect to see in other fishing boats more and more in the coming years. It’s noticeable when turning sharply, giving both control and responsiveness that’s hard to experience elsewhere. Combined with the reverse chines that prevent teetering the Impact will plane quickly without that irritating need to punch the throttle only to have to pull back.

This model is rated for a 200 horsepower motor and will cut through big Lake Michigan waves like a warm knife through butter.
