Evolution at it’s very best!
A brand new double skin hull design with a different shape above and below the water line. The sloping rear gives the boat a sporting look and makes boarding easier. Below the 175 has a deeper vee with reverse chines and a broader beam for extra stability at anchor. The bow is slightly convex softening the ride through rougher water.
The hull is 50 % heavier than a 165 so a structural engineer was consulted to address the all important strength to weight ratio, as the 175 needed to be towed behind a large family car or 4×4. Almost all of the plywood under the floor was replaced with a structural foam, this not only reduced the weight significantly but made a very strong, long lasting floor, impervious to water.
The hull is then strengthened with a ‘ matrix ‘ moulding which is chemically bonded in. The matrix not only supports the floor, it is strategically positioned to line up with the trailer rollers. After bonding the matrix is pressure tested to provide a secondary buoyancy tank.
Whether you are fishing, skiing, diving or just having family days out, the Warrior 175 has to be a contender and certainly worth a second look.
The Warrior 175 has many features that set it apart from other boats. The level of standard equipment is very impressive,which means when your new boat is completed additional equipment is limited. Inside the cuddy the seating moulding has storage on both sides with addition pockets, handy for extra life jackets,mooring ropes ect. The steering console is larger allowing for a range of electronics to be fitted. The console also houses the engine battery. Rev counter, trim and fuel gauge are fitted into a slate grey , UV stable dash, with six water-proof switches.
The floor is fitted with non-slip Treadmaster and the deluxe bucket seats mounted on pedestals. With all the storage on the 175 the floor remains uncluttered, leaving space for live wells or even bottle racks. Under the floor is yet another large storage compartment were there is ample room to store covers, fenders or even your catch of the day if out fishing. An 80lt fuel tank is also fitted under the floor with a water separator accessible under the rear gunwale.
The floor is fully self-draining, this means there is little chance of swamping. Excess water is dealt with by twin scuppers fitted into the transom of the boat, this is the safest type of hull to venture offshore. A rear seat can be added to turn the 175 into a real family affair providing storage for wet suits, water skis or even an inflatable towing ring.
The internal free board, like all the warrior range is generous, so with youngsters on board you can relax in the knowledge that they are safe and will stay on on board.
