The boat rode high and dry, thanks to the triple pontoons. G3's tubes have an oval cross section, giving them a wider flotation footprint and more surface on the water for lift. When we throttled up the F225, the boat stepped up in response hitting 20 mph, a typical planing speed for runabouts, in less than five seconds. Then it reached 30 mph in just 7.8 seconds. These are water-sports stats that show the boat can yank out a wakeboarder or water-skier without hesitation. The boat has plenty of maneuverability for tube riding too, making the tow pylon the accessory du jour when kids are on board..
