    Why does it have to be new?? You could pick up a good used Rangrer, Skeeter,or other name brand bass boat, or fish n ski for less than that. It will be a little older. IMO, you will like it alot better, and it will have a little bigger motor. If you have kids, you will like pulling them with the better boat, and bigger motor. Just my two cents.

    Mine to, for that kind of money, seems like you could get a 19 with a ton of extra equipment and a 200 or more hp that would be worth more in 2 years than the ones you are looking at now !!

    Look for an Allison fishing boat. With a 250 merc will run almost 100mph and carry a great resale value.
