What we think: Simply put, this is one of the best overall boats we tested. It would be easy to write a page about the performance alone. Our boat was rigged with the super power of a Yamaha 350 V-8 outboard. We went from 0 to 40 mph in less than nine seconds. With this setup you have a boat that literally can't be heard at idle, and can then be seen doing 47-plus mph at top end. The 2575QXi we tested could handle the biggest outboard on the market because of the unique elliptical center tube, which is 25 inches tall and 32 inches wide, leaving only narrow gaps between the tubes and creating more flotation for a huge motor.
