Question Ultra Stealth 22, opinions? What is the top speed?

I'm considering the Ultra stealth 22 (around year 2000 +/-)

Reall like the look and the wild graphics.

But most only have a 350 in them, and only do 60 MPH.

I'm wondering with a 502 or 496, maybe header, maybe shorty drive, what sort of top speed can they get?

Is it a straight V, or does it have a pad to run on @ high speed?

Only looking for an I/O

most 22 foot sport boats will run low 60s with ~300HP.

How are you mainly going to use the boat? The ultra stealth looks like its more of a ski boat. There are probably better hulls out there for rough water in a 22 foot size range.

My lake does not have much rough water, (besides the waves from Wakeboard boats)

Currently, mine is a 1990 20'7 Eliminator V bottom with pad 454 magnum, CMI, raised drive running 82 MPH GPS. amazing boat. But needs some works, and never will be a mint condition boat.

I like to cruise around @ 60 MPH @ 3500 RPM, and go for short blast for a few minutes, trimmed out and flying (runs like a progression)

Love the look of multi coloured gel, like Lavey, Eliminator Ultra etc (don't want stickers or paint)

Boat will be stored in a dry boathouse on a lift, never sits in water for any period of time.

Well, with enough power, you can make anything fast. Im sure a 525 would push that boat to 80+, but the real question is would it be safe and/or fun at that speed.

For me, graphics are low on the list when looking for a new boat.

What are you looking for in a boat other than the graphics? What is your target speed, # of passengers, price range, are you going to pull skiers, etc?

My current 20'7" does 82 GPS, stock 454 mag CMI headers raised drive.

Would like to stick with 454, 502 or 496 , magnum (Would love a 500 EFI, but generally are a big price jump)

Fit and finish, style, jel finish (like Eliminator, Ultra, Lavey etc) Love the v with pad ride, very stable at speed (hard ride, but I'm fine with that)

Top speed, 1 or 2 people, cruising 3-4 people. No skiing, no tubing.

My lake is a medium sized lake, fairly calm (a Hydrostream V-King will kill you thou!) and 18' Donzi you can run full speed all day.

Price range $20-$25K (and will go $30 for the "perfect" boat)


Here are some, but want a big block:

Hi, Thanks for the reply, I run on Muskoka. What year is your boat? what mods to get to the 570 HP? Hydraulic steering? What are you asking for the boat?
