LOW SPEED STABILITY

Our hull design utilizes an extended running surface, allowing the "v-plane" to continue aft of the transom. This creates superior stability under nearly all driving conditions.

EFFICIENT FUEL ECONOMY

Less time at the pump means more time in the water and more money for bait. The hydro-lift provides a quick plane time, creating one of the most fuel efficient boats in their class.
