The classic interior layout of the Stratos 268 V is well suited to bass club tournament competition. Casting decks are roomy, a rod locker is included and livewells are conveniently located both front and rear. This 16-foot, 8-inch boat is designed for the avid weekend angler. Trailerable and sized to fit in a small garage, when paired with a fuel-efficient mid-range outboard, the 268V delivers performance and a ride comparable to that of bigger boats. Every Stratos value-priced bass boat standard features include: twin-elevated casting decks, rod storage locker (two in the 273), roomy dry storage boxes with aluminum lids, Lowrance graph, custom trolling motor wiring system, built-in fuel tank, bilge pump, two aerated livewells with timer, non-skid bow mat, plush marine carpeting, pedestal fishing seats, deluxe padded passenger and bucket seats, Plexiglass windshield (two on DC models), a matching Stratos Trail drive-on trailer, and more. Package boats are pre-rigged at the factory to accept dependable Evinrude or Johnson outboards and come with an OMC foot-control trolling motor. Only the most reliable components are used, allowing every Stratos boat, to feature the company's exclusive 10-3 Consumer Protection Plan - a full 10-year warranty on the hull and a 3-year warranty on most component parts. Warranties are transferable and non-prorated.
