Tracker Targa V-20 WT (2016-)

1 x 225-hp Mercury OptiMax Pro XS

Brief Summary

TRACKER’s new 2016 Targa V-20 WT is the largest welded aluminum boat in the builder’s line up. With an aluminum hull thickness of .125, the same thickness as a larger aluminum fuel tank, the boat will offer excellent abrasion resistance for beaching on pebbly or sandy shores. The hull is what the builder calls a “Deep V”, though that characterization is in the context of the aluminum inshore, rather than fiberglass offshore, market. In other words, it’s a lot of deadrise for an aluminum boat, but not for an offshore fiberglass boat that is designed to keep up a good turn of speed when the wind is blowing offshore.
