I think you are leaving out one of the "Best Kept Secrets" in boating
For what you are looking for and the price of used why not look at the Sanger V215 also.
to leave this boat out is just unthinkable! To
I would demo each boat that every experienced person in this forum recommends if possible/within reason, and that would answer your questions (that is what my wife and I did)
We chose the V215 cause:
1.dollar value (no advertising/sponsorship to drive up price)very reasonable.
2.We felt it was the best handling boat(passed here *** bounce test).
3.Wake is awesome!
4.Different, not like everybody elses on the water!
5.years in business/history/small production #/experience.
6.Size of beer mmmm I mean ice cooler(has 3)
7.simple easy to read cockpit gauges.
8.sales/service dept. welcomed us in to the family before we even demo'd/bought!
9.easy no hagle price/purchase!
Ours family/friends have the major brands so we got to experience those plenty over the years so we could make the decision without being a hasty decision.
But to leave out Sanger that has 50 years in boating WOW
To everybody else in the forum lets not start aaannootthhheerrr "Bashing" thread, if anything tell him why you bought what you bought, and how you made the final decision....
