Post Checkmate ZT 220

I heard CM is coming out with a ZT 220. Has anyone seen one or heard this? Does anyone own a ZT 240, if so, how do they like it?

I own a ZT240....love the boat. It has a 454MPI. Wish I had the 502mag or 496HO in it. It runs mid 60's. Great lake boat, runs well in the ruff stuff but you need to throttle it a lot and its very sensitive to trim.

Does your ZT 240 have tabs? I would assume so. Thanks for the information. I have also looked at the Stilleto, which is a little bigger boat. I will have to test both of them this spring to see how they ride. I wonder why the Stilleto hasn't been a very popular boat. I have been on this forum and a couple of others and only know 1 person who has the Stilleto.

I have a 240 with the 7.4mpi. I like mine alot. Its been a great boat. I have it for sale. Id like to get a 300 with twins so I can range out a little,having a little extra security with two motors. We boat on lake erie and id like to make a few Cleveland trips but its a couple hour run from where we keep the boat.

Eric....get me your mailing address and i'll send you some pic's of the ZT-220...The ZT-220 and the Stilleto are very close in size and bottom deadrise(19 degrees @ transom)making them more inland lake boats..the ZT-240 has 24 degrees making it more of a minny offshore style boat..the ZT-220 also has a double stepped hull. Let me know if you need any info or pic's. Kip*****Pureattitude...you should be running a bit faster than that..i would suggest calling Mike @ the factory(419-562-3881)and go over prop's with him!

I have called Checkmate at the factory. They said mirage plus 23 is way to go and thats what I have on there. I have seen very close to 70 but thats by myself, no fuel, cold day with a perfect chop! Its very fast for its size and hp. Most other guys running 25-27 boats need a 502mag to run w/ me!

Eric made me a believer!! 24 Hydro made my 229 a much more stable boat at top end. Also eliminated the chine walk which occured as I moved through the 60's. I run low 70's flat and stable. I had a Mirage 23 which won't see my outdrive anymore.

I think you already sent me pictures of the 220ZT. If not you, someone else did. THank you though. The 240 and the Stilleto are very similiar boats, it appears, except for the Beam and deadrise. Now that I say that, I am sure they are alot different.

What purpose does the Step Hull perform?

I am trying to educate myself as much as possible.

Thanks
