Lots of good boats that will work for you. My advice is that you test drive a bunch of them then decide for yourself.

Agree totally. You'll get a lot of 'mine's best' here.

^^^^^^This

Or at least sit in them. I'm 6'3" and have had problems in some boats. For me low consoles have been more a problem than being too short. My first experience was a used boat I bought without test driving. Got it home and next day was cleaning it up and fixing to get it organized. I went to check out the hot foot and my legs wouldn't fit under console or barely anyhow. Put it up for sale the following day. Owned that boat for less than 72 hours LOL. Its not the time of year for boat shows, but they are great to sit in a bunch of boats in a short period of time.

In recent years, I've had a Bass Cat Puma/Cougar, Charger 496, Champion/Charger 210. They all have more than enough leg room. You also have to define fast because all the 20's with a 250 will be fast. I currently have a Charger 496 and it is as smooth as a bass boat gets, but top speed is 74. Now 100% of the people I fish with think that is too fast, but in the world of bass fishing that is average at best. My Puma was much faster, but conditions had to be right and you had to drive it so 80% + of the time in Texas that extra speed was not attainable that day. But if you want 'really fast' and smooth, then the Bass Cat Puma or Cougar will be hard to beat. These are not the only choices you'll have but ones I personally can vouch for in recent years.

You need to put your shoes on and run as fast as you can to buy this rig. Not joking. This is as good of a deal is a person can find.

Just need to sit in them instead of reading the interwebs. On a 20ft boat I think it might be a challenge to not fit, and most hot foots can be adjusted.

Had a deal offered to my wife and I that I couldn't pass up. Took a lot of thinking about. Cause we love the Phoenix!
