Lund 1660 Classic SS vs Lund 1625 Rebel SS

4 posts in this topic

Anyone have any thoughts or experiences with these two boats? I am looking at a new boat replacement. I really like the option on the Classic for aft seating that's hinged. Two rear fixed seats when up, or flip down to give large rear casting deck plus access to battery compartments. Makes the 16 footer able to seat 2 adults and 2 kids on occasion. Does anyone know if this option can be added to the 1625 Rebel? Their hulls are almost identical. Guess I can find out from the dealers this weekend if no one knows.

I like the layout of the Rebel a little better as the storage options seem nice. Livewell on bow and deeper bow storage.

Also any opinions out there on 75 Merc vs 75 Yamaha (both 4S EFI)? Doesn't sound like much to switch to Yamaha. Any top speed info for either model with these boats? Thanks in advance

I purchased the 1660 Classic last year and have no regrets. The aft hinged seating is a great option also. Very nice riding boat and well set up. I would without a doubt purchase this boat again.

I have a 50 4 stroke merc and with myself in the boat top end is around 34. If you are going to be running with three or more I would bump it up 20 or so HP.

Thanks Harvey Lee. 34 is some pretty respectable top end from a 50 horse. Must be an efficient hull design. Unless price gets to be excessive, I'll only be looking at the 75's since we would also like to pull skiiers and tubers as our kids get a few years older. There was a 60 horse Etec out in western MN pre-rigged that might also work; it weighs only 220 lbs. The Etec 75 was 320, so about 80% the weight of the Merc.

Also, that is GPS speed and not speedo speed with no waves.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
