Looking at a ZX 225 with the Yamaha 225 HPDI motor. Any opinions?

Thanks

I have never been in one, but a good friend of mine who is sponsored by Triton says the ZX is "Awesome."

The ZX is a great boat but since your in the mood of test driving boats I would strongly suggest taking a look at a Phoenix. Performance and overall layout of the Phoenix is amazing which is hard to come as a pair in a bass boat. There is no wasted space in the Phoenix what so ever.

Nobody local deals in Phoenix. Kinda scared of the resale value also.

If they had a local dealership I would check them out. They look nice.

On a side note, heard nothing but good things out of the yammies and if it is still under warranty you don't have much to worry about.

That's the biggest selling point. I've worked a deal just got to feel like I'm coming out on top. Still a few hidden dollars I'm looking for. Gonna make a decision Tonight... Hmmm

The only problem i have with my skeeter is speed. 20' boat with a 200 HPDI, will run about 65 in hte hottest part of the summer, fully loaded, two people, and livewells full. I have been looking at the 721 Phoenix and they run 78 with same setup. 21' boat with a 250 Merc.

Skeeters are good boats, have you looked at Bass Cats? Yamaha engines, great re-sale and quality boat. Course what do I know I run a Stratos \:D . Love my Yamahammer though!!
