Default 22' or so performance boats

So been away for a while, divorce, remarriage and just had a baby 16 months ago. Between business and personal a lot has gone on.

Anyway, I'm starting to look for a nice performance style 22-25 ft'er for NEXT summer, after the wife returns to work from maternity. Boat will most be in Lake Erie as we have a summer place in Port Dover on the shore's of Erie.

So I think I got it narrowed to a couple and wonders the member thoughts. Looking at:

1. 23 Ragal Velocity
2. 22 Sea Ray Pachange
3. 25 Larson Senza Spetre

Now I have seen quite a few posts on the first 2, but not a lot out there on the 25' Senza's?

Just looking for info, good/bad of each and getting back into boating after being away for a while.

Thanks, John

22 ZX or classic? I would think for Erie the ZX would be a much better boat.
or 26 ZX better yet.

True, the ZX are nice boats and the Classic isn't really for me. Just starting to look around and brush up on all make and models in that price range and size.

I had a 23' Regal Velocity, Very fast boat for the size, had a cool look but with the new baby, I wouldn't go that route as they ride like a brick.

22 Progression.

BTW, there's some pretty significant differences in build quality / durability in the hull you listed.
