Almost all 18 class boats are pushing 18.5-19 so yes, it will be considered and sold as an 18.

this 100%. 100k is a lot to invest in a boat that has no history.

They have been making bass boats for about 4 years. Overall great reports and people love them

Do you know who Earl Benz is? If not...look him up. He's got a long history with making great boats.

Earl knows what he is doing but has had a few pooches along the way as well, especially in the Deep V models. The early 205's stress cracked all over the place as they underestimated the stress of big weight and big waves that deep V's take on. The 215's had a porposing problem that never really was solved.

I do think it's a good looking boat and most of his boats are fast. That said the "22" is closer to the Ranger 621 than the 622 as it's under 22'. Apples to apples.

If I was spending that kind of coin on a boat I'd make dam sure the resale was going to be there. That being said where are all the "recon" boats at??? Wasn't that the hot boat a few years ago for like a week. And that giant ugly thing now called the "rage"? Sorry I'll stick to boats that have been out for years. Don't care who the designer/builder is. Resale is king.

I know. Not necessarily bad boats but when you spend money on something it's hard to buy something the masses don't know. Heck I've owned a few Princecraft boats and all of them have been perfect. No leaks, no wiring issues, custom trailer built by them and yet the resale stinks compared to boats like a Lund or Alumacraft. Nobody holds on to a boat forever so resale says a lot.
