just a personal opinion but I would never own a Sunsation because of that dash that has the gauges in the back of the fake windshield......thats something you see in an Ebbtide or some other 17ft bowrider not a real offshore boat.......for god sakes give them a big flat offshore style dash like a Fountain, Formula, Cig, Active Thunder, Baja.....you name it.......and step up to the plate!!!!!.........not gauges stuck in all over the place.......it looks like all their boats are a 17ft bowrider and they just keep lengthening it to the length they want but theres always a 17 ft bowrider hidden in there........they may be good......but with that dash they look like a poser......and for that reason I'd never even go look at one........

I could tone it down a bit and not come off so harsh but nobody bothers when talking about a Fountain, so get the whole truth

You're entitled. If we all had the same opinion we'd all be driving the exact same boat, same color, same size, and same power, what fun would that be? I said I wasn't really impressed with the smaller Fountains but after giving it some thought, I think I'd still take the Fountain over the Sunsation.

The smaller fountains are poorly layed out,, you need to step up and over the bolster to get behind the wheel,, there is no foot rest under the drivers dash ( you could slip under it ), you really cannot stand up and drive with the low deck and freeboard, they take water over the rear-end, always look like they are sinking,,, and forget about the cabins,, they are a joke.. as long as were giving our opinions...

I have to agree on the dash issue, but I hate left hand throttles so that would make my mind up.
