A Suzuki 200 powered our test boat, an upgrade from the base 115 hp engine. It planed in 4.3 seconds, powered past 30 mph in 7.6, and peaked at a respectable 46.6 mph. The 200 offers welcome growing room as a novice boater’s skill and comfort levels increase. Below, a new hull design carries the load, featuring a dihedral V with a stern pad that promises to improve performance and maximize fuel economy by delivering water to the prop with less resistance. At 3,500 rpm, we noted a 6 gph fuel burn while running at 25 mph.
