Our test boat could also boast installation of Princecraft’s Sport Package, which includes lifting strakes, an underdeck spray shield and a unique central pontoon that is three-quarters of the length of the two outboard logs. In addition to upping the boat’s rated horsepower allowance, the Sport Package is designed to enhance performance. Adjusting the tilt wheel just so, we put the Vectra 23’s 115 hp Mercury 115 FourStroke outboard in gear and accelerated across the lake. The boat hustled to more than 32 mph at top speed and attained 30 mph in about eight seconds. Those are good numbers from such economical power. Handling proved confident, the Vectra 23 negotiating turns at speed with aplomb and close-quarters maneuvers at the dock with grace.
