Default ideas, recomendations

Hey all,
im looking for some sugestions,
does anyone make a performance deck boat in the low 20' range, single big block?

looking for a boat thats easily towable, can take the kids to the lake and tube or that can head out of the CT.River over to Claudios.

thanks for any help you can provide

The West Coast builders make stuff like this.

I'd check Ultra.

I dont know about performance, but my buddy has a 21 foot Hurricane that rides like a magic carpet. It runs about 45 with a Merc 150. Great party boat. He drove that thing from Destin to Baton Rouge!

When we did a shootout for SpeedBoat magazine a few years ago, we ran the deckboats from Ultra, Cobra, Nordic, Advantage and Eliminator and we liked the Ultra for the best combination of ride, construction, comfort and all-around use. Hope this helps.

Look for a Cobalt LS. They made them in a 23 and 25 I think. It's probably the only "deck boat" that has a real deep v.
