    No More SXP or G Series in 2021

    I heard from knowledgable Bennington source the SXP and G series will be replaced by the new L series. This was inevitable that they would combine those two series models. Smart move renaming it also.

    Boating Season in Peril

    Well, what a Spring it has been in Missouri. Worst I have ever seen for rain. We boat on Truman Lake. This is a flood control lake so floods are expected at times. In the 14 years we have boated here the floods happen but for the most part you can boat and 80% of the time the lake is just...

    Electrical Issue

    Dropped the 23RCW Yamaha 300 in the water today. All great until the last 20 minutes when electrical went out to every amenity. The stereo, Simrad, lighting, nav lights. It starts and runs and the Yamaha gauges work. I am going to bring in to dealership 67 mile drive. My guess is some thing came...

    My Boat Companion

    We put down my boat companion today. Nixon has been on almost every boat voyage I have taken over the last 10 years on all three of the Bennington’s I have owned. Best dog I have ever had. I will miss him.

    Kansas City Boat Show

    i thought you would all enjoy this pic of twin 400 Mercs on a JC pontoon boat at the Kansas City boat show. I still like Bennington more than any other brand primarily for their attention to detail of the over all look and fee of the boat. All the curves on furniture, sides are symmetrical as...

    Floods- New Benny Sits

    Some of you may have seen the floods in Missouri over the last couple of weeks.  Since I dropped my new Benny in the water we have had nothing but rain which is why I  took off work to get it in  when I did because the forecast out a few weeks did not look good. Well, that may have been the...

    350 HP on 23 G And R Series

    For all you speed demons out there.  I noticed today on boat builder you can now get a 350 HP capacity tag for R and G series 23 models.  Just amazing how the HP continues to increase for all of these models.  I am very happy with the 300 on my 23 RCW but if this had been available then I...

My initial performance numbers were very good considering the awful conditions.I...

    Prop Specs for 23 R or G F300 Yamaha

    I have not dropped my new Bennington in water. The dealer put a 15 1/2-17 prop on the motor. I was wondering how that compare to what others have?  I thought it might have a 15 1/2-16.

    Bennington Boat Sales

    Upfront, I have to say that I have not verified this or as the media might say I have no evidence :lol: . My brother was talking to his dealer about a warranty issue. The dealer said that Bennington manufactured about 8,500 boats last year and they are on pace this year to manufacture about...

    SPS Plus

    When I was building my new 23 RCW, I noticed they now offer SPS Plus tritoon package that allows you to put a 250HP motor on a 24 S premium or at the G level without adding ESP. I think you can even get the SPS plus at S series 22 which allows you put on a 200 HP motor. Is this new this year SPS...
