If that were true, they would never sell so many boats.

If someone says a Skeeter chime walks they’ve never driven one. I’ve had multiple and just bought a 2018 zx250 and love it as much as my other skeeters. Best part is the new Skeeter trailers.

Yes they make their own trailers now and probly the best trailer I’ve ever seen.

The boat has a lifetime structural warrany to alleviate any concerns. Would be tough to be in business almost 50 years if they had issues. 3 year component warranty and I️ got 5 year warranty on the motor

3 Legend v20

On your list, I'd give the 721 the nod on speed with the bug outrunning the legend by a hair.
721 has a narrow deck compared to the other 2.
For all around work horse, I would go with the bug. But that's just me.
Have no fear, the V20 guys will be along shortly to dispute this.

I had 1046 hours on my legend. It was truly a great boat. But the reality is you can't get parts anymore from legend. Those are facts. If that isn't the writing on the wall, I don't know what to tell you. When the V20 was released I wanted that boat more than anyone, you are crazy if you are going to invest 80k right now in Legend. Pull this post back up in 5 years and prove me wrong. Phoenix is the new legend. Good luck... Ranger and Skeeter aren't going anywhere and neither is the resale value.
