I just want to know how you like it. How it rides. What you don't like about it

I bought a new 2017 zx250 in October of 2017. The 2018's were out but I chose to go with the traditional compartment design, just personal preference. I am well pleased with everything about my rig. Great ride in all weather conditions. Cruises well in the mid 60 mph range and will hit 73-74 mph with one person and gear onboard. Great platform to fish from. Lots of room and storage.
I'm a little less impressed with my trailer. It took a while to,find the spot that allows for easy loading without the bow being off center. You won't have the same trailer if you buy the newer model and get a Skeeter made trailer. I haven't talked to anyone or seen the new trailer myself.
Overall, I don't think you will be disappointed in your decision to go with this rig.

My 2019 ZX250 is a year old and absolutely love it. It rides and handles great just as the others i've had. My performance is like stated above, low to mid 70's with 2 people in decent conditions (but rarely go that fast). The "team deck" layout took some getting used to and still trying to decide if i like it better than the original. Has plenty of storage up front for both mine and my dads gear. My best recommendation is to find one to crawl all over and take a ride in to see if you like it. Main thing I've never liked is the access to the bilge/battery area, which is now addressed on the FXR.

2019 ZX250, had it not quite a year. Same as above, rides great, performs well, really like the storage. My only complaint would be the lack of access to the bilge area. Hasn't been an issue, yet, but am dreading having to swap a battery. Wouldn't stop me from buying the same boat again.

I own a 2018 ZX250 Love everything about the boat. It does porpoise a bit at lower speeds if nor trimmed down,
I think this is due to twin power poles. Top speed is about 71mph 2 people full load of gear.

Not sure if you are aware but the rear corners come off the deck to allow access, it’s just 3 or 4 screws, your carpet laying over might be hiding them, at least that’s how it is on my 18 model.

A battery won't fit through those openings. Although it is still helpful when unhooking them.

I just swapped my cranking battery and let me tell you it was a major pain. Had to unhook one trolling battery and the cranking battery. Remove the trolling battery, then remove the cranking battery. And they only come out and go in at an angle due to the metal transom supports and battery charger in the way and you can only use one hand to maneuver the 70 lb battery. It's not fun.

Other than that I love my boat.
