Default Hull Question

I'm looking at 22-27's from Nordic, Sunsation and Eliminator and I want a deep V style. What kind of differences, speed, durability, performance can I expect out of these manufacturers?

Welcome to OSO.

That's a pretty big gap in size. What do you want to use the boat for? What do you expect from the boat, where do you boat, thoughts about power ect. More info is needed for folks to give a good answer to your question.

Thank you, and I'm just looking for a new, solid lake boat something that I can get up to around 75 or 80ish

Nordic is fine for lake use, it has a 22 degree hull (I'm speaking of the Nordic 28', I owned one) and is well built. I wouldn't use it in the rough stuff, the ride is a bit harsh for that. Great cabin if you're into that.

You'll need power in the 28 to get it over the 70 mark, my 28' with a 496HO saw 67 once and a consistent 64. I don't have any experience with the smaller Nordics.

Okay, so that answers a little for the nordics, I'm okay going a little bigger, i.e. the 28' I just don't want something a PITA to tow. What about the other two? The Eliminators and Sunsations, and words on those?
