You may not be known for sportboats, but people are still impressed
when they ride in my '95 696 ZP (I believe it's actually the SVX hull).
Whether I take a group of 10 people out for a cruise, or a couple
buddies out for a hot run (70MPH on GPS with a 454 Mag), it's very
versatile, and the styling still looks great. I've taken some long
river trips, and with a cruise speed near 50 MPH at the most efficient
3000 - 3500 rpm, gas mileage, speed, and range compared to other
boats is also impressive.
It's a small boat for Lake of the Ozarks, another area where I use
it, but it has held up well under the severe conditions one can encounter
on that lake! Only complaints are cockpit bench seat padding going flat
(have to step on it to get in or out) and too much flex in the hull
(windshield has fallen thru a couple times - must be why most sportboats
have closed decks). I keep it in excellent shape, and see no reason why
I won't keep it for 10 - 12 years, other than sucumbing to a case of
