The Charger 198 Elite CX is built for speed and agility. Rocketing out of the hole onto a perfect pad, the 198 Elite CX will remind you of classic champions of the past, gliding over wakes and rewarding anglers with the smoothest and quickest ride to the biggest fish.

Onboard the 198 Elite CX standard features strike the perfect balance between form and function. Cradled into the heated custom driver seat, the handcrafted steering wheel adjusts perfectly into place. On the floor, driver and passenger dry boxes exist as ergonomically positioned footrests. The easy step-up cooler flows up to the spacious, cushioned front deck for a “fatigue-free” day of fishing...and winning. When the daytime fun is over the numerous LED lights illuminate the deck and the Loc-R-Bar® secures your 198 Elite CX till the next morning when you once again, put in with the best.
