Most under powered bass boats don't have a very strong resale value for that reason alone.
I personally would never purchase a under powered boat of any sort.

I had a 20' with a 200 on it that I just sold, my hole shot blew and top speed was around 62.

My personal opinion, get the max rating for the boat allows.

tmd, keep in mind the OP was talking center-console boats, most of which are far heavier than an ally, and have a deeper V. No comparison. I'm sure Steez was commenting from that perspective, not the Ally that has nothing to do with this thread.

My wife drives my Ranger faster than 35! If lake conditions permit, she seems good at 50-60.

Where does the OP say anything about center console?

My comment was a feeble attempt at humor

200 sho can be bumped up to 335 or 450, 335 takes a simple ecm reprogram and 450 needs a nizpro supercharger.

200 2 stroke can be taken to 250 - 300 in most cases for less than a rebuild.

And a gearcase if you want to last more then 10 minutes

there is no p performance on a 21 ft boat with a 200 on it. it should be priced much cheaper because when you go to sell it wont bring as much if you don't care how fast it runs or how it will lift the boat go for it.

The stock gearcase cant handle the torque of the NIZPRO 450 super charger. Also stock gearcase design prone to blowout at speeds over 90ish.

While I would prefer to have max rated hp for resale purposes and top end speed a 200 3+liter will have a great holeshot.I remember back in the day when BASS had the 150 limit, there were guys running 20' boats that'd jump on plane and run 60-62 mph. I ran a 19'6" 1730# hull with a 2.5L 150efi jumped on plane jut fine and would run 63 all day long with two guys (Me 365# at the time) and 50 gallons fuel. I see lots of misinformation on this thread.

Guess it depends on what you expect. If it has the right prop on it should get on plane easy just won’t be a speed demon.

I don't think the OP answered one of the first and most important questions here. What hull are we talking about?

Huge difference in a 21' Gambler and a 21' Skeeter with a 200 on it.

There's so much that goes along with an underpowered boat.
