New Boats: Quintrex 168 Coast Runner


The 168 Coast Runner from Quintrex features the company's specially designed Millennium hull. The lightweight aluminum hull is engineered to maximize lift, while its deep-vee provides a smooth ride in choppy conditions. Suitable for salt or fresh water, the 168 has a transom engineered to increase buoyancy by extending the hull to the edge of the boarding platform, which also helps the boat to plane faster with less throttle. With a 7' 5" beam and a length of 16' 8", the 168 Coast Runner is very stable and has plenty of room for fishing. It features a rear lounge with cushioned seats and ample storage space beneath, drink holders and storage pockets. The 168 offers a variety of options, including Bimini top, front and side curtains, transom boarding ladder, convertible ski pole, bait board and 11-gallon bait well.
