Difference in Lund types

13 posts in this topic

Looking at getting a newer boat - just wondering what the biggest differences are between the Lund Fisherman and the Tyee

Your best bet might be to check the specifications. My guess is that the Tyee is deeper and wider, maybe higher hp and capacity rating, added bells and whistles, etc.

It's mainly bells and whistles... pro-long livewells vs regular aluminum livewells, recirc valves on the livewells, radio, etc.

The new Tyee is glass and the Fisherman is Aluminum.

Basics of the fisherman:

1750 - 17'-6" and 135 max hp.

1850 - 18'-6' and 150 max hp.

Side rod locker storage only.

Some bow storage capacity.

Basics of the Tyee:

Tyee 186 - 18'-6" and 175 max hp.

Side lockers as well as in floor rod storage (11 rods)

Maximized bow storage

Larger rear casting deck space with jump seats folded down.

Other than that and between 15k and 20k depending on options, they will both be fishable big water boats.

Thanks - I have been searching for 2000 to present - Lund tyees since that is what we have now (1983 tyee 5.5) We fish big water so i would like to get a 1950. Just wondering are the fishermans as deep?

I keep seeing fishermans on the lake and they look nice, and maybe sheaper - I guess I don't need all the bells and wistles but I dont want a shallow hull small lake boat.

Check the Lund web site for the specs but if your on big water go as big and deep as you can. The tyee is a great big water boat but the Fisherman is a very nice boat as well. Its all about preference a lot of times. Go look at a few and see what ya think will work best for the way you fish.

The Tyee is the same depth and the Fisherman... using a broad paintbrush, they're almost identical with the exception of fit & finish (tyee's usually have full enclosure packages, bow cushions, etc), & installed accessories / bells & whistles.

The biggest difference that matters to me between the two is the livewells are different...

Also, depending on the year, the Tyee's have the IPS II hull and the fisherman's in the last 2-3 years got that.

Hull wise there is no difference between the 17 and 18 foot TYEEs and the Firsherman. Exact same hull. Fit and finish, big diffference. Also 1750 tyee is rated for larger motor. Was told this was marketing decision. The biggest thing to cosider is that, I don't think there is a 19 foot Fisherman avaiable.

TYEE is a bigger boat i believe. They are Deeper in the freeboard, but have the same set up as a fisherman. The fisherman in the Lund line has been one of the top if not the top selling boats for them. They didnt make it one year, and people were upset, so they brought it back. Its a popular boat in Minnesota for the simple fact that its alot less money then a tyee, and does everything anyone wants.

Thicker hull on the Tyee which I believe directly correlates to the HP ratings being higher on a Tyee. I do believe the Tyee is slightly deeper and wider. As others have said the two are vitually the same boat, besides some of the bells and whistles. Maybe the Fisherman is the standard Chevy and Tyee the Cadillac.

Just went throught the 2008 lund catalog for TYEE and Fisherman(1750 & 1850) both TYEE and Fisherman in these two sizes are IDENTICAL with regards to technical specifications. Hull thickness, length, width, depth Ect. As been said before, the difference in the two boat series is fit and finish. In addition to the HP rating, 175 max vs. 150 on the 1850 and 150 max vs. 135 for the 1750.

I own a 2008 1750 Tyee and 17Fishman is correct. For 2008 and 2009...the Tyee 1750/1850 and the Fisherman 1750/1850 are the EXACT same IPSII hull. As noted above, the Tyee has more/nicer options as standard than the fisherman and I too believe the HP rating difference was more mktg/positioning than anything real technical. There is no 1950 Fisherman option. next one I get is going to be the 1950 Tyee. Knowing what I know now, that would be the ideal boat for me.

    • From your link-     I thought I would highlight a few tidbits for the Benghazi impaired . 
    •   NSA To Provide "Smoking Gun" Proof Obama Spied On Trump Mar 24, 2017 5:43 AM   Yesterday, Republican Devin Nunez Nunes held an explosive press conference outside the White House in which he told reporters that communications from the Trump team were picked up and disseminated within the government during the 2016 campaign.  Not surprisingly, the comments ruffled some liberal feathers and the mainstream media launched an immediate smear campaign calling for Nunes to resign his post immediately.  Now, according to Fox News sources, congressional investigators expect that a potential “smoking gun” from the NSA establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee as early as tomorrow.   The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.   The FBI hasn’t been responsive to the House Intelligence Committee’s request for documents, but the National Security Agency is expected to produce documents to the committee by Friday. The NSA document production is expected to produce more intelligence than Nunes has so far seen or described – including what one source described as a potential “smoking gun” establishing the spying.   Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.   The key to that conclusion is the unmasking of selected U.S. persons whose names appeared in the intelligence, the sources said, adding that the paper trail leaves no other plausible purpose for the unmasking other than to damage the incoming Trump administration.   Because Nunes’s intelligence came from multiple sources during a span of several weeks, and he has not shared the actual materials with his committee colleagues, he will be the only member of the panel in a position to know whether the NSA has turned over some or all of the intelligence he is citing. If true, of course, this could put a 'slight' taint Obama's claim of a "scandal free" eight years in the White House.   **snip**   .........If Nunes is correct, and Trump was being wiretapped for reasons having nothing to do with Russia, that entire narrative falls apart, and the press will now have to spend the next few weeks building up an entirely new narrative to "justify" why Trump was being wiretapped on Obama's watch.   Link     Delicious...  
    • My wife and I like to float down the Crow from Rockford to the Mississippi. Hardly anyone on the river except Bald Eagles. Found some nice chicken of the woods mushrooms last summer.
    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
