Skeeter Boats Claims Innovation Award for New WXR2060F

MINNEAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The National Marine Manufacturers Association® (NMMA) and Boating Writers International (BWI) honored Skeeter Boats with the 2024 Minneapolis Innovation Award in the fiberglass fishing boat category for the WXR2060F. The Innovation Awards were presented during the Sneak Preview event on January 17 and recognized manufacturers and suppliers who brought new, innovative products in the boating industry to market. Three BWI judges with various technical backgrounds in boating selected the new product winners.

“This industry recognition of the WXR2060F is quite an honor, and one we share with our team and customers,” said Jeff Stone, Senior Vice President, Skeeter Boats. “It’s customer demand that drives our innovation. With even more room, this new model brings features to the table that improve experiences on the water while keeping performance and fishability a top priority.”

The WXR2060F, designed for deep water and big waves, offers both space and performance. Combined with its large, deeper hull design, the WXR features an 8 percent larger front deck, optional dual graphs at both the helm and the bow, all new tackle and rod storage. The deep gunnels ensure family and friends are safe and secure in the cockpit and spread out with room to seat up to six people.

“While offering a new level of deck space, Skeeter went a step further for its new WXR2060F by redesigning the hull, eliminating flex for more stability in the new console pods for a better boating experience.” said Adam Quandt, Editor-in-Chief of Boating Industry, BWI Judge.
