Guys and Gals,
I need help decided between two possible boats and i want your unbiased opinion. I am deciding between a new 2019 Nitro Z20 with a Mercury 250, with no upgrades for $45K. OR a used 2018 Skeeter FX21 with a Yamaha 250 Vmax with160hrs on it, Solix 15 and 12, 2 powerpoles, jackplate, and Hotfoot for $58K. Also comes with warranty till 2025. Keep in mind that i can put all the extras on the Nitro at wholesale price to make them equal in electronics. Am i wrong for worrying about the skeeter being used? Since the nitro is new from cabelas, wont it be easier to have maintenance and other repairs taken care of? Looking forward to your honest opinions.

Lot of factors. Nitro will come with what motor? A 225? Skeeter comes with a 250. Who around you works on mercury or Yamaha? How much in extra is all the upgrades going to cost you?

Maintenance is going to be tough regardless. Repair shops and excellent customer service are typically not used in the same sentence. Proactive/Predictive scheduling and timelines are mostly non-existent

Don't worry about the Skeeter being used, IF it was properly cared for!

Yes, the Merc can be maintained at Cabelas and the Yammie can't.

I don't think the ride between the two is even comparable. Or is it?

FX 21 equipped @ 58K is a very good deal.

Skeeter all the way. The Yammy is just fine and your covered for just as long as you would be (or longer) then with the new merc. 3 year factory and can add a 5 year extra with the merc. Check the skeeter out but IMO Iโ€™d go with the Skeeter any day!
