Triton 206 Fishunter – Quimby's Cruising Guide

Triton 206 Fishunter

Triton founder Earl Bentz is a good listener. When diehard walleye anglers came to him asking for a slightly smaller version of the company’s 21-foot, 7-inch 216 Fishunter, he didn’t turn a deaf ear or try to redirect them to another boat already in the lineup. Rather, he built them the exact boat they wanted.

“Throughout the design process, we sought input from our walleye pro staff members, who unanimously agreed that this new multi-species boat should incorporate an interior layout and features very similar to those found on the 216,” said Bentz. “Our pro staffers and I agree that our new 206 Fishunter is the perfect size for most walleye fishing applications, without sacrificing the enhanced fishability, storage capacity, riding comfort and performance that our 216 Fishunter is so famous for.”

Like the 216, the all-new 206, which is 14 inches shorter in length but just 1 inch shorter in width than its “big brother,” is built to be capable of crossing big, rough bodies of water thanks to an all-composite, high-performance, deep-V hull. Recommended power is from 200 to 250 horsepower, with motors available from Mercury, Yamaha and Evinrude, two-stroke or four-stroke.

The big, wide front deck houses two large tackle storage compartments, an aerated baitwell and a center rod storage locker capable of holding 10 of your favorite sticks in elevated and protected tubes — and there’s even more bulk rod storage below that. The bow panel at the nose of the 206 is large enough to flush-mount a 12-inch fishing graph, along with a drink holder and a tool caddy.

The driver’s console sports a full compliment of gauges, plus a backlit switch panel and an oversized dash for flush-mounting large (up to 12-inch) electronic units. And there’s even enough real estate to gimbal-mount a second 12-inch unit! The passenger console has a handy glove box and a built-in tackle storage module in the footrest. The consoles are protected either by twin individual Plexiglass windscreens or a tempered glass walk-through windshield.

Impressive rod storage on the passenger side of the cockpit allows four ultra-long trolling rods to be organized and stowed, as well as four additional rods stowed in protective tubes. The rear deck hides large storage compartments for loads of tackle and gear, as well as a horizontal tournament livewell with aeration, recirculation and pump-out that’s big enough to hold a world-record musky.

The 206 comes standard with a 112-pound thrust Minn Kota Terrova 60-inch shaft trolling motor with I-pilot, four-bank battery charger, Lowrance HDS-9 Gen3 fishfinder/chartplotter and a custom tandem-axle trailer with disc brakes and a spare tire. All that, plus a long list of options (seating, rigging, electronics, trim and comfort features) make the Triton 206 Fishunter an instant contender for serious multi-species anglers everywhere.
