    Captain's Report

    “Tracker
    The Pro Team 175 TXW measures 17’7” (5.4 m) long and can be powered by up to a 75-hp outboard.

    Mission Statement

    It’s always tough to fix what isn’t broken, so when Tracker Boats decided to update its Pro Team 175 TXW, the manufacturer was smart to not change too much. The pedestal-mounted seats have been re-designed for more comfort, and the hull bottom is finished in Starlight Gray Diamond Coat.

    For equipment, a Lowrance Hook-4x color fishfinder and a 21-gal. (79.5 L) aft livewell now come standard, and the boat is packaged with a single-axle trailer.

    “Tracker
    Tracker carries the beam as far forward as possible, creating more space on the forward casting deck.

    Features Inspection

    The Bow. For a 17’7” (5.4 m) long boat, the Pro Team 175 TXW has a big forward casting deck that measures 32 sq. ft. (9.75 sq.m). The deck is recessed a couple of inches below the gunwales, and throughout the boat, all walking areas are covered in 16-oz. (.45kg) marine grade Midnight Star carpet.

    There is a receptacle for one of Tracker’s new “clamshell-styled” folding fishing seats that have contoured, injection molded bases and snap-off seat cushions.

    The seat is positioned to make it comfortable to use the foot control for the Minn Kota Edge 12-volt trolling motor that has 45 pounds of thrust and a 45” (1.1 m) shaft. Additionally, to port, there’s a bungee cord to hold down rods during a run between fishing spots.

    “Tracker
    The nonskid mat on the bow adds traction for a fisherman deploying the trolling motor.
    “Tracker
    The bungee cord to port in the bow secures rods and the carpet cushions the ride.
    “Tracker
    The boat comes with four stainless-steel cleats. We’d like to see Tracker use pull-up models that wouldn’t snag fishing lines.

    Bow Storage. Outboard on each side in the bow, twin hatches open lockers that have space for lifejackets, rain gear, tackle boxes, and other equipment. The center locker hatch opens on twin gas struts, and on the underside, there’s a guide for how fishing rods should be stored on the underside. All three lockers are carpeted and have locking latches.

    “Tracker
    There are lockers outboard on each side in the forward casting deck. Notice that the hatch is reinforced, so it won’t sag when walked on.
    “Tracker
    The center locker can accommodate rods up to 8’ (2.4 m) long, and the courtesy light on the console will illuminate the area at night.

    The Cockpit. Stepping down into the Pro Team 175 TXW’s cockpit, the boat comes with two full height bucket seats outboard on each side and a fold-down shorter model in the center. When the backrest is folded forward, it creates a step up to the aft fishing deck. There’s storage in the base of the port and center seats and two cup holders in the deck.

    “Tracker
    The bucket seats have raised forward cushions that help create a more secure riding position.
    “Tracker
    The plastic bases for the center and port seats are hinged and fold forward to access storage.

    The Helm. To starboard, the one-piece rotomolded helm console is topped by an acrylic windscreen, and it contains a speedometer, tachometer, volt meter, and fuel gauge. With any outboard, we would also like to see a water pressure or temperature instrument.

    There’s a cell phone holder in the center of the panel, and accessory switches are split on each side. The Lowrance Hook-4x fishfinder is bracket mounted to starboard, and it has CHIRP sonar, DownScan Imaging, and a 272x480-pixel display.

    “Tracker
    The helm puts the instruments in clear view outboard of the steering wheel, and in the center, there’s a cell phone holder.
    “Tracker
    The Lowrance HOOK-4x color fishfinder mounts on this bracket and can be removed for security.

    Aft Casting Deck. Fold forward the backrest for the middle seat, and it’s an easy step up to the aft casting deck. It measures 4’9” (1.4 m) across by 3’2” (.97 m) deep or approximately 14.7 sq. ft. (4.5 sq. m). The area is fully carpeted, and there are tracks for the VersaTrack accessory mounting system on the gunwales.

    In the center of the aft casting deck, there’s a socket for mounting one of the two movable fishing seats.

    “Tracker
    The aft casting deck has space for an angler to fish while seated or standing.
    “Tracker
    This tackle tray is one of six different accessories available to attach to the VersaTrack system in the ProTeam 175 TXW’s gunwales.

    Livewells and Storage. New on the Pro Team 175 TXW, the hatch immediately abaft the cockpit seats opens a 21-gal. (79.5 L) livewell that has a removable partition, rounded corners and 500-gph (1,892 lph) aerator/fill and recirculating pumps. The recirculating pump also has a timer.

    Outboard to port and starboard, there are lockers with storage for tackleboxes or other equipment. The hatch just ahead of the splashwell opens to provide access to the batteries two-bank charger and livewell plumbing.

    “Tracker
    The livewell is within reach from the cockpit and aft casting deck.
    “Tracker
    These lockers outboard on each side are made from molded plastic and can be removed after loosening a few screws.
    “Tracker
    The large hatch just ahead of the motor opens to access the fuel tank and the Interstate batteries.

    Performance

    Revolutionary Ride. The Pro Team 175 TXW rides on Tracker’s Revolution variable-deadrise hull that has 16 degrees of deadrise at the bow and 10 degrees at the transom. The Power-Trac offset transom provides for quicker holeshot and better overall performance.

    “Tracker
    The keel is reinforced for the full length, and the strakes and chines are mechanically pressed into the single sheet of aluminum that forms the hull.

    The Numbers. With two people, 17 gal (64.4 L) of fuel, and test equipment on board, our test boat weighed an estimated 1,778 lbs. (806.5 kg). She was powered by a 60-hp Mercury ELPT four-stroke outboard with a 1.83:1 gear reduction turning a Spitfire 10.1” x 14” four-blade aluminum propeller.

    We hit a top speed of 35.2 mph (30.6 knots) at 5900 rpm.

    Best cruise came at 4000 rpm where she ran 19.3 mph (16.8 knots) and burned 2.3 gph (8.7 lph). That’s 8.4 mpg (3.57 kpm), which gives the Pro Team 175 TXW a range of 162 statute miles (261 km) with 10 percent of the boat’s 21.5-gallon (81.4-liter) fuel capacity in reserve.

    In acceleration tests, the boat planed in 3.7 seconds and ran to 20 mph (17.4 knots) in 5.7 seconds and to 30 mph (26.1 knots) in 9.4 seconds.

    “Tracker
    With the Pro Team 175 TXW’s versatile performance, Tracker might want to consider offering a ski-tow pylon as an option.

    Maneuverability. In turns, the Pro Team 175 TXW reacted to quickly to directional changes and carved tight moves in less than two boat lengths. When we widened the arc, she held her line and completed the maneuver cleanly. Running in lake chop and in our photo boat wakes, she delivered a smooth ride and the flared bow kept the deck dry.

    “Tracker
    The Pro Team 175 TXW had a sporty feel in turns, displaying nimble agility and responsiveness.

    Construction. The Pro Team 175 TXW is built with a welded one-piece 5052 marine alloy hull that is .100” (.25 cm) thick and has pressed-in strakes and chines. The all-aluminum box beam transom has corner braces welded in place to unitize and strengthen the hull. Longitudinal stringers are also welded in place for full-length support of the hull. Flotation foam is injected into all hull cavities for added stiffening and flotation.

    The hull is finished with Diamond-Coat finish, a baked-on powder coat, and clear coat. The decks are formed with pressure-treated wood that has a lifetime warranty.

    “Tracker
    Every part of the boat’s internal structure is welded. There are no rivets in the boat.

    Trailer. The Pro Team 175 TXW travels over the road on a custom fit steel trailer that has a powder-coat finish and Galvashield coating. The 13” (33 cm) tires mount on chrome wheels with matching hub covers and they roll on Super Lube hubs. A swing-away tongue saves about 2’ (.61 m) of garage or storage bay space and there’s a tongue jack.

    For easier retrieval, the trailer has upright load guides and carpeted bunks, and transom straps secure the boat once it’s in place.

    “Tracker
    On the trailer and powered by a 60-hp Mercury 4-stroke outboard, the Pro Team 175 TXW has an estimated package weight of 2,192 lbs. (994.3 kg).
    “Tracker
    The swing-away tongue on the trailer saves space for storage in a garage or warehouse.
    “Tracker
    Tiedowns for trailering are especially important on a light boat to ensure that it stays secure while crossing bumpy roads.

    Observations

    The Tracker Pro Team 175 TXW has been the company’s best seller for the past few years, and the manufacturer made some smart additions with our test model.

    The new fishing seats, livewell, and fishfinder enhance fish-ability, and the Starlight Gray Diamond Coat finish on the hull bottom improve longevity.

    The VersaTrack system lets owners customize the boat with relatively inexpensive accessories. On her custom-matched single-axle trailer, the Pro Team 175 TXW weighs just under 2,200 lbs., which opens up trailering possibilities. For example, a 2017 Subaru Outback has a towing capacity of 2,700 lbs.
