NauticStar announces the launch of its 191 Hybrid at the 2020 Miami Boat Show. Combining high-end design and affordability, the 191 Hybrid, features a newly designed hull ideal for handling choppy waters. Most compelling, however, is the new model's extremely modest price point. The boat is available at under $30,000, with a dealer-supplied trailer.

"NauticStar customers are looking for the highest-value option," said Jay Povlin, President of NauticStar. "That is what we deliver: great performance, great design, and great build quality at an affordable price."

In addition to fishing attributes such as forward and aft livewells, an aft fishing deck, and console rod holders, the 191 offers a family-friendly platform for cruising lakes, coastal waterways and inland waterways. Its hull is designed to handle rougher waters than a standard boat of its size, and is proven to provide a comfortable ride for everyone on board.

NauticStar's Hybrid Series is unique to the industry, offering features from deck boats, center-consoles, and bay boats in one fisherman-friendly layout. It presents the best of all worlds in fishing, watersports and general recreation.

"NauticStar is known for a nice dry ride," said Larry Krestan, VP of Marketing and Sales for NauticStar. "The 191 Hybrid is a true extension of the popular series, performing well in all kinds of conditions, and promising everyone a good day on the water."

The 191 will feature NauticStar's air-assist chine and planning technology, a Limited Lifetime Hull Warranty, a one-piece foam stringer system, and an 11" draft for agile maneuvering in skinny waters.

Other specs include:

  • Length: 18' 11"
  • Beam: 98"
  • Max Horsepower: 115 HP
  • Approx. Draft: 11"
  • Deadrise @ Transom: 14.5 degrees
  • Deadrise @ Entry: 39.35 degrees
  • Fuel Capacity: 32 Gal.
  • 2 - tournament livewell/baitwells - One in console seat (13 Gal.), and one between aft jumpseats (27 Gal.)
