The Targa model name of deep-vee aluminum fishing boats is not new for Tracker Boats, but all three 2011 Targa models are radically changed and this particular V-18 DC (dual console) model certainly is totally new and is all about serious big water fishing. For seating, Tracker provides a dedicated helm seat with slide adjustment plus two movable fold-down 360°-swivel fishing seats and six pedestal seat base locations. There is no doubt that Tracker has done its homework well in designing and building this new series of big-water fishing machines.
For 2013, Tracker Marine Group, headquartered in Springfield, MO, offers thirty-four models of Tracker aluminum bass, panfish, multi-species, jon, and utility fishing boats in four series from ten to twenty feet.
The Pro Guide V-175 WT subject of this review is one of ten models in the Multi-Species Deep V series ranging from sixteen to eighteen feet.
To describe the advantages of the deep-V hull design of the Pro Guide V-175 WT, Tracker says, “Deep V hulls feature a sharp V-shaped design with up to a 35-degree deadrise at the bow and up to 20 degrees at the transom.
Tracker’s Deep V models feature all-welded aluminum construction consisting of a two-piece hull with a welded-in keel support where the two halves meet, a box-beam all-aluminum transom welded to the longitudinal stringer system which itself is hydraulically pressed into the hull, then welded in place.
The helm console features a black metallic instrument & switch panel with recessed illuminated single-function gauges including speedometer, tachometer, voltmeter, fuel, trim, and water pressure. The bow trolling motor deck is carpeted and the bow panel includes a 12-volt outlet, and a motor tilt switch. So serious was Tracker in getting it right that they enlisted the help of 25-year, big water tournament fishing professional, Gary Parsons, to offer suggestions for the Targa’s layout and execution (see separate article). Padded backrests in front of each console provide stretching out comfort in the raised bow area.


The test boat was equipped with the optional Mercury 115 hp EXLPT (extra long shaft, power trim & tilt) OptiMax and we spent the total allotted time not only to explore the beautiful scenery of the lake, but also to ensure a thorough shake-down of the boat. And if you need to extend the seasons, you may want to consider the Targa V-18 WT (walk-thru) with full windshield and available full canvas, or for added family enjoyment, the Targa V-18 Combo, designed for a combination of family-fun and fishing. Tracker Marine Group also builds Sun Tracker pontoon boats, Nitro performance bass boats, and Tahoe sport boats. Extruded, welded-in chevron supports reinforce the bow while transverse bulkheads provide hull support. There is another large in-floor center storage compartment plus another in the aft raised fishing deck.
Foam injected into the hull cavities adds hull stiffening, flotation, and sound insulation. Two grey, aerated livewells are standard – a 19-gallon bow and a 29-gallon at the stern.
Dealer installation fees for options, taxes, title, registration, documentation and license fees vary by situation and are in addition to prices shown.
The Pro Guide V-175 WT’s standard colour scheme includes blue hull sides and gunnel with a red and white graphics scheme with a natural aluminum bottom. Also new for Tracker in 2011 is its exclusive VERSATRACK® accessory mounting channel in the gunnel.
A little more throttle to 4000 RPM produced 26 mph, and full throttle trimmed out 5400 RPM was 36 mph.
A custom factory-matched, colour coordinated, powder coated steel bunk trailer with swing-away tongue is standard.

In addition, a new transom set-back design is said to deliver undisturbed water to the propeller for faster, smoother takeoff and better overall performance. The 4000 RPM at 26 mph seemed to produce a satisfactorily quick yet very comfortable and probably reasonably economic cruising speed.
The cockpit floor is vinyl covered while all other interior surfaces have grey cut pile carpeting. Even multiple criss-crossing back and forth through its own wake didn’t fizz on this Targa.
