Meet Veer X13, a small and slender multi-tool of a vessel that makes small boat angling and adventure affordable to the masses.

Venerable fishboat manufacturer Lund threw a curveball with its new small, narrow, and shallow rotomolded polyethylene first-of-its-kind Veer X13. The advantages are compelling: shallow draft, rugged hull, low maintenance, easy to drive, and priced at $11,995 with 9.9-hp Mercury outboard.

Those assets add up to a vessel that enables two people to explore new waters, sneak up on unsuspecting fish, or just head out for skinny water adventuring. Take a look for yourself.

Veer buyers also have the option of going electric by opting for Mercury's new Avator 7.5e electric outboard. Electric translates to zero emissions and whisper-quiet motoring. The boat was recently honored with an Innovation Award at the 2023 Minneapolis Boat Show, winning the Fishing Boat category.

Veer was created to foster the next generation of boaters.

"Bringing in an entirely new concept of boat with next generation technologies and an entry-level price point, the Veer X13 offers the joy of getting on the water to a whole new generation of boaters and offers access to waters never before explored by a motorized boat," said Innovation Awards judge Adam Quandt.
