Skeeter WX2060 big boat for big water
By Craig Lamb
When you move up to a 20-foot multi-species boat, you expect more of everything. The Skeeter WX2060 delivers with more cockpit space, storage, and standard options than any boat in its class.
At 20′ 6″ the WX2060 is rigged with the economical and powerful Yamaha VMAX SHO® V6 4.2L outboard. With a 25-inch shaft, this motor pushes the performance envelope with 250 horsepower. When it comes time to set trolling lines for multi-species action, the WX2060 delivers again with a Yamaha T9.9 horsepower kicker outboard.
The interior of the WX2060 is designed for anglers that spend lots of time in the cockpit. That makes this rig ideal for trolling and multi-species angling. Spacious sidewall rod storage compartments define the interior, along with plenty of storage space at arm’s reach for storing utility boxes with terminal tackle and baits.
When it comes time to troll, the WX260 has the edge with the Skeeter React Keel which provides unparalleled slow speed control and handling. The keel design resists cross winds and currents that would put lesser boats off their line and off the fish.
The innovative hull design represents the culmination of efforts by Skeeter engineers to create a harmony of design between big water ride in rough conditions and precise handling at fishing speeds. How the WX2060 handles in rough water is only one half of the story.
No matter how you like to fish, the React Keel makes boat control easier. You spend less time keeping the boat on top of the strike zone and more time focused on fishing. That means putting more fish in the live well!
The React Keel is a Skeeter design innovation marked by revolutionary advanced control and turning. The accentuated keel that runs from the bow rearward along the centerline of the hull tops the list when it comes to noteworthy breakthroughs in hull engineering. This advancement redefines how WX models with the React Keel handle wind, waves and current.
Another element of the performance and fishability of the WX2060 is the Torque Transfer System. This unique system transfers the vertical torque and energy from the engine to the stringer system in the bottom of the boat, virtually eliminating stress on the transom, deck, and hull sides, while providing lift along the entire keel of the boat.
Combine performance and handling with standard options and you have a boat ready for anything with the WX2060. Check out these standard features:
- Lowrance® HDS12 Gen 3 Touch fish finder on dash
- Minn Kota® 112 Ultrerra® US2 trolling motor
- Dry deck ventilation system
- Hamby’s Beaching Bumpers® Keel Protection
- Tuff Coat Channel Trailer with tandem axles
- Automotive style cockpit side panels
- Bow and rear customized tool holders

All of the top-end performance comes from Skeeter’s relentless passion for designing, testing, and building the best bass boat in the industry.
