Overview
Glastron’s MX 175 is the company’s entry level boat. But from a company that has made its reputation on family runabouts, entry level has a whole different meaning. The Glastron MX 175 benefits from Glastron’s VEC technology process that results in boats that have extraordinary structural rigidity. It is also well-equipped with what people really want in a boat, which includes attractive styling, bucket seats and more.

Speeds measured with Stalker ProSports radar gun. Fuel consumption (gallons per hour) measured with Floscan digital fuel-flow meter on gas inboards, sterndrives, and outboards, TechMate electronic scan tool on gas EFI inboards, Caterpillar digital fuel-flow meter on diesel engines, or permanently installed fuel-monitoring equipment. Range is based on 90% of published fuel capacity. Sound levels determined using Radio Shack digital decibel meter on A scale. 68 dBA is the level of normal conversation.
