Andy ,you may be in for sticker shock . We originally were ordering a 23 RCW with the arch ,sps + and a 250 .That was way over our budget .So we decided a 200 with the sps and curved power Bimini would be enough for us . We have that 40 minute ride to Burt Lake to the South or 40 minutes to Mullett to the North and its all no wake . Bottom line on top of the cost of this upgrade ,I cant justify another 20 K for 50 more HP . Best part is I can fit this one in my new garage .
Nice. Sticking with SPS? The 10 year warranty is nice but if I upgraded it would cost me at least $25K down here to get something comparable. For that money I can pay to fix anything that goes bad above the deck and still be ahead. That will be nice going to the factory and seeing the build.

Change of plans .
Just went to the dealer to finalize our order . When we ordered the 2014 RCW I had originally priced a G ,and by the time we put the options we wanted on. It was more cost effective to by the R . So I asked the dealer to do the same build in a Q ,sure enough ,with same options the Q makes more sense for us .
So its now a 2020 23 QCW

Nice!!!! You need to update your signature now for #3

Also, I thought you can do SPS 250 which allows you to have a 250 on the SPS. Is it still $20k to go from the 200 to a 250? Seems high. Now with the R to Q savings it might be doable.

Congratulations Jack.
Glad you were able to talk to your dealer and move to a Q. I found some pictures on the web and it's a beautiful boat.

It's interesting Bennington specs the length of the 23QCW at 27'3", and the 25QCWA is also 27'3". You would think there would be a 2 ft. difference.

PAJS it is.

You have surpassed Derrick and are worthy of the name change!

I still think Derrick pulled off three new boats in the shortest amount of time.

Jack is definitely showing the young bucks how it’s done though!

Wow, I don't check this forum for a few days and Jack is at it again, surpassing Derrick's enviable record, say what? Congrats on a new Q, very nice!

Did you go for that red/white 2-tone interior posted earlier?

Is it the new Merc 200 3.4l V6? We have twin Merc 200's on our Axopar 28C and love them so far.
