We picked up Phoenix Bass Boats at the 1st of this year as one of our primary product lines. Would like to hear feedback from any TFF Phoenix boat owners. Thanks.

They look like good boats, but I haven't personally ridden in 1 yet.

I'm guessing Bobby Lane switched from skeeter to Phoenix since he had a shirt and hat on Zonas show today.

My fishing partner has a 921, if I was buying new that would be my choice. It's has tons of deck space and handles rough water great. Plus I think they are one of the best looking boats. When I pull it, I get 10-1 comments over my triton.

Best boat I have ever owned, and I have owned a few. My last boat was a Skeeter,and it did not even come close to the Phoenix as far as fit , finish, ride, layout,quality of components and customer service goes. Take a ride in one and you will be sold

I am currently in a 921, this is the 4th Phoenix I've owned. Best boat and company in the business, in my opinion. Love everything about the 921.

Just bought the new 920pro xp. Super fast. Handles great. Storage is awesome. Have been in triton for 4 years. Still have it and was gonna get a new triton. Same size triton with same add ons was $14k more. So far, great boat!

I rode in Aaron Martens 921 during the TTBC. I liked what I saw. It was pretty choppy that day and the ride was real good. You know it's always rougher on the passenger side so if its good there the driver ride is better. Nice layout. Lots of deck space and storage. It seemed to be constructed well. He said it's the shallowest draft on tour. It will get real skinny. He went in a spot easy that my basscat can barely get into. Maybe he had a little better line going in, who knows. It's fast. I looked over and GPS is at 80.4. Having me in there added 265#. Of course he does alot of things like only fill the oil and gas to where he needs it, lithium batteries, weight distribution etc. It got out of the hole real good as well. He seemed to really like it. And they don't all rave about what they are driving when you get them away from the dock.

Definitely worth a look if you are considering a new boat.

I am seriously considering one. Will be looking as soon as my boat sells. I haven't rode in one yet but I have looked at them in person and seen all the literature.

Appreciate your feedback. Phoenix definitely thought of the angler when they designed these boats. The attention to detail paid in the fit/finish of these boats is the best I've seen in the industry(too include Bass Cat).

We took a tour of the Factory, and let me tell you, if I was to buy another boat, it would be a Phoenix, the wife really liked the rod storage for the passenger side and I liked all the standard features that are add ons for anyone else

I own a 721 and to me its the best ride I've ever been in. The layout of the boat to me is the most thought out, from the weekender to the hardcore tournament guy. It is just a well thought out and designed boat. I will be in a Phoenix from now on.

Same here, I fished a PAA event last year with Russ Lane and his Phoenix was a real nice rig. I used to work for a Phoenix dealer in Kansas and I must say these boats are a value. One that is overlooked is the 600 series. These boats are quite the offering for someone who is not pro or rich.

I agree with you Steve. The Phoenix 618 Pro is a super boat/motor/trailer package.

How much does the 618 on your website cost? That is a good looking boat.

I would consider a Phoenix for sure. Its a beautiful boat and everyone I have talked to loves them But dealers seem to be few and far between. That's when warranty work can become a logistical problem. Any way to work around this T Bird?

Good to see a Charger dealer in Texas. Not knocking the Phoenix but it would be hard to beat the ride of a Charger.

Congrats and Good Luck..

Nice boats, crawled around in a few. Most owners seem pleased so that is all that matters. Would not be my top choice but I hope they sell a ton and stay around a long time. Their ownership seems like good people.

Most of the warranty issues involve engines. It's a 4 hour drive to where I bought my Phoenix but there are Yamaha dealers all over. In nearly 4 years, I've only needed engine work. The boat has been great.

Pretty good looking boat but like the layout of mine better. Just being honest but I dont see anything that would make me want to jump right out and trade brands.

I bought a 721 a month ago, after drooling over Darold Gleason's old boat more than once.

I traded my Nitro Z7 in on it and so far love it. To me the ride is incredible, after two back surgeries, I cannot handle the hard hits much, but this thing rides and drives like a sports car. I am still learning to drive it and will be playing with my setup soon, but straight from the dealer it runs like a scalded ape.

Well guy's, I carry/sell all 3 boats Phoenix, Legend, and Charger, so I think my statement concerning access to their company key personnel is pretty well qualified.

A lot of the smaller boat manufacturers give you very personal service. The Bullet folks are that way. I could pick up the phone and talk to the owner or a guy in the plant. I have found the Allison and Stroker owners and management to be very involved and interested in you total satisfaction with their product. The big guys just cannot give that kind of personal service. That being said, a lot of the big guys have great service. The key to a good boat is not needing the service that much

That's weird, I'm just a guy that bought a Charger Boat and I have always had easy access to anyone I wanted to talk to at Playcraft/Charger. They've always been very helpful.
