From what I understand, the 721 is the fastest Phoenix. I've been in one, they are Cat fast or faster depending on the set-up. (no offense to the Cat guys)
Have friends that only run the 721 and others that run the 9's, all of them are happy with their boats and the ride.

I have had 3 different Phoenix boats, my latest being a 721. I have liked it the best out of all of them, for lots of reasons. I like the front end better, I like the way it handles better, its quicker. I like how it fishes and maneuvers around docks, marinas, etc. There is a reason that Gary Clouse drives a 721, in my opinion. I am getting a new Phoenix and it will be a 721 without a doubt.

I have a 920 I wouldnt want a 721 I feel like my deck is narrow when I have rods on the deck already and a 721 is more narrow. Its narrow enough that I had a round 9 inch seat made for when Im using it up front.

Id buy a 4 stroke only, hyd plate only, make sure whatever you get has two bilge pumps, has live well pump out etc. 721 are the cheaper boat of the 20/21 footers so they are often stripped down of options.

There are new 2018 phoenix on lots being blown out with 2 stroke mercs on them, I think I just saw one on fb the other day for 55-56k thats below the price of a stripped down 721.

I paid 51,500 for mine used in 2017 100 hours no scratches damage and mine is a 2017 so yes that is a steal, mine had no poles talons etc. The 4 stroke mercury has almost 400 hours if I remember correctly on that one. Which wouldnt bother me with all that warranty anyways. Its a sexy white and blue boat also, very sharp.

For a Lowrance/power pole guy wow thats a steal.

Had a 721 for a couple of years. Loved that boat. It does everything well.

I have a 721 now, had a 921 previously, and been in a lot of 920s. 721 is narrower at the trolling motor(2017 models and newer are less narrow than the specs posted above because of the deck being raised). When I measured at Fun N Sun it was 1.5" each side of the trolling motor pedal compared to the 921(3" total).

Since you are asking about the 721, it's amazing, but so are all the others. I will soon be in the market for a new Phoenix, and I am torn between another 721 or a 921. The build quality is the same for all models, which is great, and customer service is stellar if there ever are issues. My boat at 2 years old, Phoenix still takes care of me if I ever have minor problems, no questions asked. The 721 is about 3 mph faster than a 921, and about the same speed as a 920. It rides really well in rough water, I mean really well! I don't think you'll be disappointed with the 721, I definitely wasn't. Just need to ask yourself if you want a 21' boat or 20.5' boat, and if you want a wider deck or not. Those two questions will help the search and decision.
