Thumbs up Skeeter boat choices

Hi guys
I'm finally gonna get a nice new boat and get rid of my 1989 tracker!!

After a long time thinking about all the diff. Boat brands I've decided on going with Skeeter! I've search on here and read other forums on the differences between mx and wx but still keep going back and forth. I'm finally going to look at a couple next week work permitting but would love to hear some fresh thoughts. I'm not asking anyone to help me make up my mind just others insights.

I fish mostly medium size lakes in southern MN with about one trip each year to leech and Mille lacs. Fishing for walleye and trolling about 75 percent of the time!

I've narrowed it down to these three with no electronics or kicker. All around the same price range about and that's part of the part of the reason it's hard for me to narrow it down further. Do I go new mx and have little rougher ride but better tracking with react keel. Do I go with wx 1850 and not have snap in carpet and no react keel and older hull design but better rough water and jump seats. Or the 1910 which is best of both worlds but two years old and have to park it in my garage at an angle....buying an expensive boat for the first time isn't as fun as I thought it would be lol stress...
Choices
2017 mx 1825 f150

2017 wx 1850 f150

2015 wx 1910 f200

Thanks!

If it is in decent shape, it could save you some money:

Do the 1825 and the 1850 have F150s or F100s ?
I wouldn't buy either with a 100.
Assuming you meant to type F150, they are all good choices, but as much as I like my Mx1825, I would get the 1910 if the price was close.

Oops... I mean 150. Thanks for pointing that out ! You would go with the two year old wx 1910 over new? Curious your thoughts on why. Also what year is your MX? I have lots of questions lol
Thanks

Danno,
Just went through what you're going thru. Very frustrating search at times. I got lucky, got a 2016 WX2190 from brother in law's neighbor. Took one look and we were hooked. He babied it. Didn't want to spend an extra 12 grand over what we budgeted but knowing it was in excellent shape and taken care of made it worthwhile, plus buying from private party over a dealer we saved 2,500 in sales tax so that helped take some of the bite out of it. Moved up from a Crestliner Sportfish I will be selling/giving to the son. This will be our last boat so what the heck, life is short....

Do you not have to pay taxes when you buy from private party?

They have a pretty good national price on the 2060 and 2040 with a lot of good features.

I priced a 1910 and it was almost the same price as the 2040.

Yeah the 2060 and 2040 are out of my price range. Plus no way I could fit them in my garage. I will have to put the 1910 in the garage at an angle. A new 1910 is out of my price range... that's why I found a used 2015 wx 1910. It's around the same price as a 2017 wx 1850 and 2017 mx 1825.
