They sure do look similar in ways. Is there any relation in the Stratos Evolutions and Phoenix boats?

I don’t see any similarities, other the the graphics are similar”ish” on the sides. Now the Vexus glass boats resemble the Stratos.

I believe the owner of Phoenix was with Earl Bentz at Stratos, I do see some characteristics of the Stratos in the Phoenix boats.

The founders of Phoenix all came from Stratos. The started in the the old Bumble Plant with their molds and a year or two later came out with new new models and hulls.

The older '07-'10 models do share a lot of similarities. But they are not similar at all anymore. Not sure Stratos even makes a model over 18 feet long anymore. If they do I haven't seen it anywhere online or in stores.

Stratos makes no boats anymore.

I know this doesn’t really mean much but I thought I would just add that the owner of Phoenix, Gary Clouse, worked for Earl at Stratos then he worked for him at Triton. If I remember correctly, he was VP of Sales.


Have a Blessed Day,
Mike

I think it has some similarities to the earlier Stratos boats.

Yes it does, climb in one. If you knew Stratos in the days that the Clouse crew was there, there is a ton on Stratos DNA in a Phoenix. They are the love child of Stratos and Bumble Bee.

You need to look at some of the first few years of Phoenix. They were very close to Stratos.
