I assume these are all basically the same model? Just different years, swim platform?

My 2nd lift is 26’. Think this would fit great and be good fun.

Any avail out there - Michigan to Fla?

Thanks !!

I think the 251 has a narrow beam, 7.5? The others are 8'

Had the 251 Convincor Classic. Fast Hull, great Handling in rough water for the size. It is the fastest of the group, due to the narrow beam. I had a warmer HP500 at the time with a shorty XZ drive. It ran 75+. Good build quality also.
