Bennington’s 23 RSBWA is rich in creature comforts, but it is this boat’s ride that truly may be its most memorable attribute. Credit the brand’s ESP performance package, a design that pairs two 25-inch-diameter outer pontoons featuring performance foils with an elliptically shaped 32-inch center tube with lifting strakes. Along with an underdeck wave shield and power-assist steering, it promises enhanced stability and quick planing, but most impressive is what the features do for the boat’s cornering ability. Powered by a Yamaha F300 outboard, the 23 RSBWA carved beautifully during turns, with the smooth, inside-lean feel of a V-hull. Top speed peaked at 44.1 mph, and it handled well at all planing speeds.
