Bigger, Bolder, and Loaded with innovative features, the AVX1980c is engineered to check all the boxes for crappie anglers. The 19’ 10” layout includes the smooth, responsive handling of SeaStar™ Pro hydraulic steering, while quick hole shots and a glass-inspired ride further highlight the on-plane performance. Supporting the ride, our whisper-quiet, Hush Hull design dampens sound, culling hull slap and spooky fish concerns. The .125 thickness combines with integrated spray rails for an ultra-dry ride and even more comfort, convenience, and confidence.
Inside the stretch-formed gunnels, deck and storage space are off the charts. The monster-sized front platform measures a full 12-inches wider (over 20%) at the forward seat bases than similar sized rigs! It’s a revolutionary, ultra-stable design with record-setting room for 3-across seating. Also up front, an aerated livewell/baitwell is fitted with a reverse-hinged lid to help keep the action uninterrupted. Multiple gear boxes dominate the massive forward deck with the port box easily cradling 9-foot rods. Longer sticks comfortably ride along the port and starboard sides, once again, keeping everything close at hand.
The trolling motor station is equipped with a recessed well for the pedal as well as tool slots, a cup holder, electronics, and remote switching. Elsewhere, 35-gallons of fuel capacity center the cockpit, and the custom seating includes a driver seat slide as well as a choice of a center storage box and step, folding center seat and step, or an open step. At the helm, the glass-infused console is home to a full complement of electronics and instrumentation.
Oversized, fiberglass storage boxes (not plastic) permeate the model, bringing added dryness through raised lips, compression latches, and deeper water evac channels. The rear deck is centered by a tournament-grade, fiberglass livewell equipped with recirculating aeration, auto fill valve, pump-out, and anti-splash ring. Further aft, our Vector Force transom is built to absorb the added shock and weight from today’s heavier outboards, shallow water anchors, and other stern-mounted gear.
Coupled with a remote drain plug, stainless steel pop-up cleats, upright level flotation, and wood-free construction, this rig helps ensure you won’t ever be crowded out. Experience the full measure of a true crappie machine.
