I may be wrong but I think it's the BassCat Eyra at 20'2".

Bullet 20xd is 20'1"... I'd say to be legal it couldn't be shorter than 20' because of the formula the Coast Guard use to formulate HP ratings... Dan

Eyra is 20'1" counting the rear setbacks. It is only 19'8" or so from bow to transom. They are a missile with a 250

Best all around boat I ever owned. Not sure if the big 3 liter motors are the best choice, but a 2.5 really performed great.

Not cheap, but you may want to check out an Allison XB21. The 21' is the overall length, but the centerline length is less. So when you have the motor mounted, it may be shorter overall than a 20' boat.

Also, is it length on the water that you are worried about or length of the trailered boat? This could produce different answers as well.

Thanks guys for all the replies. I really like the idea of the new Charger/Champion 210 but I'd like to see one in person and maybe the 2nd or 3rd generation of it. I'm in a 181 Champion now and I really like it but I'd like a little more room and power. I really liked fishing out of my partners Skeeter ZX250 this year also. I'm just thinking that maybe something in between might suit me. My problem is I like all of them. I'm about a year or so from make the purchase of my next but and want to pick the right one for me that will last 20+ years like my Champion 181 has.

I would love to see a 20ft skeeter with a 250 without the fx price. Got to give it to skeeter though as the market stands I would buy a Zx 225 fully loaded without the other 25 horses

Brad's ZX250 is nice and he's doing some sweet upgrades to it right now, including a indoor showroom for it.
