I know this is a lot about opinions and dont really want to this to turn into a peeing match...

What 19' bassboat has it all? Im looking for speed and a stable platform most of all, but deck space and storage is a biggie too.

I was looking at Strokers but they are 21', then you ad a 16" jackplate to make them perform at their best and that thing is a barge that wont fit in a lot of places I fish.

BassCat Pantera will be very fast, stable and have good storage.... But there is no perfect boat.

My Bass Cat Pantera 4 is 19'5 and very fishable handles rough water like a champ and tops out at 74 empty and 70 with full load and well full of fish!

Pantera 2 is a rocket ship. I've heard of mid 70s with a light tournament load. 77 or 78 is max I've heard with a 200sho and perfect conditions/setup. The caracal is by far my favorite 19'er. The pricing has decreased for 2017 and you will see more caracals around. 72mph loaded. With a 225. Because of the setup the 19' Basscats fish larger than most.

The three brands that come to mind are triton(19trx), bass cat(Pantera and caracal), phoenix(919). I favor the Phoenix UT those 3 all have good platforms. I do think the Phoenix will be the fastest. They will get upper 70s

If you're not afraid I would love to hear what you could achieve out of a p2 with a 200sho and a ecm tune from simmons or hydrotech. I imagine low 80s

And that proxs 225 or sho200 will go days in a tank of fuel! I go a day on a tank with my 300hpdi. That is the only thing I miss!

Right now I have a 96' Pantera II and love the stability but dont like its only rated for a 200hp and the deck seems pretty small for 7'+ rods.

Upper 70s would be nice, but I would like to hit 83+ if possible.


You guys know anything about the 19' Bullets?

I'm liking the blazer 595.. should be really quick and they have really stepped it up on their newer platforms.

Are we talking about a bass fishing boat or a race boat? Seems like anyone getting a new boat only cares about flying in it lol.
