Whatever you decide, just make sure to max out the HP with a reliable motor from Briggs, Nissan, or Tohatsu!
Just having a little fun :)
Cap-what kind of set up is he running? Prop, pitch,jackplate?53 seams kinda fast with a 150.
I take it he is running an Optimax I know they run good on that hull.53? I am hoping to get that with a Yamaha 200 4i when it is all broke in.
My brother has the yarcraft you are asking about with a merc150, four stroke 9.9. kicker, dual counsel. 53 mph boat, smooth dry ride. He loves it.
boats are specific to type of fishing you do and other pleasure boating. I would never buy a boat based on someone elses recommendation. I think this is a decision you need to make yourself..they are all nice boats at that price point.
Love my skeeter WX2100 walleye boat. But now u can only get skeeters with yamahahahahas on them. Mine has 250 pro xs optimax merc. Yar Craft u can still choose what motor u want. So now whenever i get another boat, i wont b able to go back to Skeeter which sucks cuz ive had 2 of them and LOVED em!!
I agree that the layout on the skeeter looks better and seems to have the better standard options. I have a 03 skeeter bass boat and I can say the quality of it is great. If I had to buy a deep v style boat it would be a skeeter hands down.
Skeeter has always made a good rig!
Congrats, post a few pics when you get her home.
Yes. I am getting one.Paperwork ready to go.I have my mind made up but just wanted to get others opinion. Maybe someone out there has owned both.
I have no experience with a Yarcraft, but did see a Skeeter at a sandbar on the Wolf this past Summer. Really a nice rig - was laid out very nice.
It’d be hard to beat with a Yami on the back.
Are you just poking around, or seriously considering?
Yes. Both have 200 Yamaha 4 strokes on them.
