I went to cabelas yesterday to pull the trigger on the white Tracker Pro Team 190 tournament edition they had on the floor and that sucker was gone. Now I’m having the hardest time finding one without ordering one and waiting 8 weeks (which is still an option).
Before I do though...

This one was about 26k with 115 pro xs, 70lb maxxum tm, upgrade trailer wheels, a couple hook 5 fish finders.

While I was writing this a salesman in jasper called and said he had one for 24k but it has a 90 mercury on it. Not sure I want to go with the smaller motor though.

Question is does anyone know any other brands in this price range that are similarly equipped? I know most of the brands but finding actual prices is tough on most websites.

Anything in the 19 ft range that’s about 26k with 115?

I'd look at the Lowe Roughneck, it's got a thicker aluminum hull than other Lowe's in similar categories.
It's designed as a duck boat, but all I do is fish out of mine and love it. I'd get an 1860-- the front and rear decks are more than adequate. The front deck would be easy to extend if you were inclined to do so.
Might not go as fast as a bass boat and the gunnels are higher up from the water, but I think they are a well made vessel and a good value for the money.

Finding a brand new 19ft aluminum bass boat equipped as you've mentioned will be very difficult to find at that price or under.

Definitely easier to find brand new 20ft aluminum bay boats similarly equipped at the price you mentioned or under.

I’d buy an Xpress WAY before I’d buy a tracker.

Real world pricing (at BP and Cabelas anyway) add prep and freight and you’re at 30k. And I’m not sure that includes the 24v tm or any fish finder.

CC, that’s definitely an option.

If you haven't bought anything yet - you've got options. I had a Ranger Cherokee 237 for a brief period of time - if had fit in the boat house I'd still have it. These have a welded aluminum hull by Crestliner - at the time the most experienced AL builder in the country. Very robust. Top of the line interior. The one below in Branson, Mo for $8995.

There is also a Ranger Cherokee 216 for $8900 out there as well:

Plug "Ranger Cherokee" into your search engine and start looking. Mine had a Mercury Mariner on it with low hours - a lot of boat for the money.

Another aluminum (19'5") bass boat with consistently strong recommendations with a 115 at the price you mentioned brand new.

I appreciate it zebco. If I wasn’t mechanically challenged I would definitely look at used.

You're welcome - the one I bought needed absolutely nothing. Came stocked with fishing tackle too! They're out there.

Here's one in Texarkana, just 1K more, but might be better equipped.

Might be too far to drive, but Waco Motorsports would normally have that Tracker 190.
