    2002 stratos 20xl pro star?

    I'm looking at possibly getting this boat, it is my first boat.
    What could you tell me about it, ride, speed, etc?

    Thanks,

    Re: 2002 stratos 20xl pro star? (Reel Bass)

    I almost bought one just like that for my first "new" boat back in 2003. They are nice boats. I liked the large consoles. They are finished out well. Can't say that I've ridden in a 20XL but I've spent hours and hours in my bud's 21XL.

    I know you're looking at an '02 20XL but the '03 brochure states:
    Length: 20'1"
    Beam: 92"
    Approx weight: 1575
    Max Hp: 225
    Fuel Cap: 50gal
    Livewell: 40 gal
    Length on trailer: 23'11"
    Lenght with retract tongue: 22'1"
    Rod box lenght: 8ft port & starboard

    "The 20XL is a perfect fit for both the weekend angler and the tournament pro. This 20 footer's deep V hull and extra wide beam of 92" makes it easy for the 20XL to handle rough water with ease and cross the lake in a blur with its max rating of 225 horses. The 20XL features a spacious tackle compartment, a rod ramp adjacent to the passenger seat, and an easily accessible built-in cooler. Dual aerated livewells with a Dual-Pro battery charging system round out the impressive list of standard features."

    Good luck!!

    I've got an 03 20xl Prostar. Bought it new, and not a single issue with the boat since. I use it alot, and it's seen some rough water. Rides really well and runs @ 72-73 with 225 Yamaha. If it's in good condition and priced right, I wouldn't hesitate at all! Let me know if i can answer any questions for ya.

    I had one and loved it, ran good, fished good. I think the speed was around 74 with a 225 Ficht. The only thing I didn't like were the rear storage lids. They would not open far enough to stay open by themselves. Sold mine to a man from Richmond Va.

    I have an 02' 21XL Magnum. Bought it in 04'. It's seen its share of rough water with not one crack to this day! It did have an 03' 225HO Ficht untill this April. It has an eight inch jack plate, and with a 26 Raker(not RakerII), and the right conditions. It would do mid 70's. Not sure about the Pro Star, but the 02's I believe might be the same hulls. If so, and the motors sound, I would pull the trigger again in a heartbeat!!

    Re: (Reel Bass)

    I'm running a 2002 21XL Prostar. Had it almost a year now and am loving the ride, the handling and all the room in it. Still working on dialing in the speed. Right now I can run 65 on GPS with 2 guys, gear, and half to three quarters tank of fuel with a 2002 FICHT 225. There is more speed to get out of her though once I get the motor set up right and a better suited prop bolted on.

    I got the news that the motor checks out, and I had my friend from my Bass club go by and look at it.
    I'm going to go look at it tomorrow morning, so we will see.

    Thanks everyone I'm loving it and already tearing into it and showing her some love.
    Got the carpets cleaned and vacuumed everything yesterday and got a list together for an order from C&O.
