It's like an aircraft carrier and a MiniCooper had a baby. Handles sporty yet has its own zipcode for deckspace. lol2019 22SSRXP SPS performance package with F200XB Yamaha. 43mph on GPS @ 5800 RPM's fully rigged and full of fuel with 1 person on-board. It has plenty of hole shot to pull a 275lbs skier from deep water. Smooth ride, cuts through waves very nicely and the turning capability is impressive. This is my first "toon", so I have no comparison to others brands or models. I have always had Vee bottom runabouts. My Bennington performs similar to my 1999 Crownline 225BR with a 5.7 and a Bravo 3 and uses WAYYY less fuel with tons more room.
Do you think it could cut a 50' diameter circle from 25 mph? It seems like my SPS does that. Would be fun to take both out and try to compare. Of course its hard to judge distance by eyeballing boats wake on water. We had a mint 1976 Bayliner Saratoga 25' cuddy cabin i/o that we inherited from folks that when you turned agressively while pulling a tube actually felt scary like you could lose control and if you don't hold wheel firmly will veer towards starboard. It seems the Benny always feels in control even in hard turn. I love the lifted outboard tube feeling!My 25’ ESP turns like my old 18’ Four Winns!
