How expensive are the skeeters loaded out, I would be willing to try one

I have been considering the ZX225 or the FX20 along with a couple of the basscat models. I really like the layout and features on the FX20 but it appears to be close to 12 grand more than the ZX225 which is pretty much the same hull but with a different deck layout. The biggest drawback or I might already own a ZX225 is they come "packaged" you don't have a lot of options to choose from... You must use Lowrance electronics... Nothing against Lowrance but I am used to Humminbird. Color choices are ...well... so so... nothing really excited me. Hoping that changes with 2019 models. I cant remember now but there were some other rigging issues with the ZX I didn't like.... maybe it was trolling motor... I wanted an Ultrex.

 Skeeter has NAP posed on their web site... not sure how much you can get off of them.  Only the FX20LE is posted though... usually around $67,000 vs $55,000 for the ZX225.

Not sure where you landed, lots of opinions, but would echo the Bass Cat comment made earlier. Fished out of many, own a Bass Cat and love it. Great ride, fast = fuel efficient, durable, and customer service is amazing. Not sure why you are excluding Bullet but those boats are incredibly fuel efficient, stable, smooth riding and the service is great too.

I like the Phoenix 920 best the wide front deck and good ride and speed, I may look at a skeeter but I’ve heard of cracking and gel Cote coming off after just 1 year and was garage kept, and the bass cat the deck is too narrow, and the bullet is narrow also and the ones I have rode in didn’t ride good in rough water but that’s just my opinion.

I wouldn't buy anything new. Just like a car- drive it off the lot and loose 10K! There's plenty of practically new, used rigs out there barely broken in with better electronics etc for 20k less than new. Also, after owning a 21 Triton, I'd never run a smaller boat than a 21'. If I did buy new, I'd look at an Allison first. They make the best built hi quality hull in the world. Bullet and Phoenix are close 2nds as well as the Charger 210 Elite (formerly Champion), voted and tested as the best rough water hull out there. Allison being the exception. All the top names have their positives. I wouldn't rush into a purchase. The new 2019 models will be out there in August. Test everything at least twice because water conditions vary. Rough water ride would be my biggest concern. IMO
