Each year as new hull designs slice, dice, step, and carve their
way into marketing headlines there are many claims by manufacturers about how
well their boats perform. In 1993, Stingray began collecting performance data
from boat tests published by reputable parties (boating magazines and motor
manufacturers). We've used this information to compare the speed and fuel
economy of our boats to competitive products. After comparing the efficiency
of our patented Z-Plane hull with thousands of other boats, we were very
pleased to see just how well we stacked up against our competition.
You, too, can use this performance database to compare over
thousands third party boat tests performed over the last twenty years. With this
information, you can decide for yourself which manufacturer has the most
efficient and best performing boats in the size range you are looking for.
All tests in our database were performed by third parties and
have source documentation listed. Editorials or tests on boats containing
performance information not taken by the tester are not shown in this
database. We have attempted to provide you with factual, unbiased boat
performance data, and every effort has been made to display this information
accurately. We will add approved tests not currently listed and correct any
test errors reported to us by e-mail.
With our performance database, you can:
Compare speed and fuel economy by model, length, and horsepower
Use the category search query to easily change the output results
Get detailed comparisons on up to five different boats
