The name of the boat Crossover is borrowed from the automobile industry. Crossover is a vehicle combining features of a sport utility vehicle and pretense of SUV ruggedness on one hand, and on the other it pertains to coziness and economy as well.

Its groundwork is a double-riveted aluminum IPS hull containing double-thickness and density from amidship forward bolstered by I-beam stringers. The IPS hull allows for a smoother and faster ride, benefits stability and handling of the boat and it encounters less resistance since it goes higher with less of the boat in the water. This is achieved via a flat pad situated in the center of the hull and it also delivers clean water to the motor reducing the drag. Deadrise on this boat is sixteen degrees at the transom. The maximum horsepower is 175 while speeding up to 52 miles per hour since it’s powered by a powerful four-cylinder Mercury 150 FourStroke engine. The engine blends adequate power with noteworthy fuel economy.
The console of the 1875 Crossover XD has been newly re-designed. It’s got a sleek looking windshield around the consoles that besides looking stylish, it knocks down the breeze in much of the cockpit. While skippering this boat, SeaStar hydraulic steering allows it to be crisp, responsive and effortless. You have four sets of gauges right in front of the tilt steering wheel (it can be adjusted up and down) allowing you more comfortable driving experience. Additionally, the system switches, Infinity AM/FM/MP3/Bluetooth stereo with additional stereo speakers plus 12V accessory plug, an auxiliary input and a handy little cubby to hold a phone, are all conveniently located.

Lots of gadgets, space and innovations can be found in the Crossover 1875 XS. The cockpit utensils start aft comprising a pair of jump seats flanking the fishing platform. Lower them down and they shift into the carpet-covered platform. Furthermore, it’s got three pro-ride seats. At your disposal, you also have a close-at-hand stowage below. Between the two seats is a curvaceous kick-out that includes cup holders and trinket trays with slots for fishing equipment. However, if you flip the upper part, you get an 18-gallon live well with fresh air injection and recirculation. Lund presents some of the most technologically advanced live wells on the market for catching fish alive or keeping bait. Precisely behind the live well, on the aft platform, an optional ski pylon can be installed and it comes either in beige or gray interiors. Perfectly positioned boarding ladder is installed below a panel to starboard of the motor well. Next to the sky pylon, an option of installing a fishing chair is welcomed too.

Regarding the bow platform, it is lifted about 11 inches above the main deck containing two enormous stowage compartments. Padded backrests are integrated on the front side of each console. Nevertheless, it’s an extra option if you want to install it into a sun lounge. Why stop there? There is also an option to broaden the space with additional pad, bow cushions and a deck insert. You can use that space for sunbathing while the boat is anchored and it is not recommended while it’s underway due to the minimal forward depth. Just to wrap these features up, you have a bimini top to place above your heads if you feel like the under seat storage mentioned above are not enough for you.
