    721 questions

    New to researching Phoenix boats. Rangers and Tritons make up 90% of the boats in my area.

    When I search for birds on Boat Trader, I find fewer 721's for sale than the 920's. Usually a 5 to 1 ratio. Are the 721's more coveted than the 920/921? Or is it a production ratio?

    The 721 is Phoenix's most popular model, more bang for the buck compared to the 9 series models. I had a hard time finding a used one when I was looking and ended up just buying a new one instead.

    Most guys who keep a boat for a year or 2 opt for a 920 or 921 which is probably why they are so popular when looking at boats for sale. They are the flag ship model so they usually sell faster.

    +1. I think most guys that buy the 721 are the guys that keep their rigs longer. I think it's the perfect size rig, especially the new ones.

    721 is the cheaper model so more of them out there.

    721 is a keeper boat hands down. Sleek and fast. Not the mention a blast to drive. Can’t go wrong with any Phoenix model. I love my 721 and it’s a keeper!

    Is the 721 pro xp much different in size compared to the 920, or the 20 phx? It looks like a nice size boat and is the storage about the same?

    Slightly longer, front deck a little narrower. Same boat from the console back.
