I have owned two ultra's in a timeframe of about two years.
My first was a 2004 21 stealth and bar none it was the best 21 I have ever driven, or rode in. It only had a 350 in it but performed excellent. It handled the chop good and it was the best rigging I have seen in that type of boat, and the boat was very well put together, nothing ever fell apart like some other boats I have been in.
But going to Havasu and seeing all the new and bigger ultra's made me want to step up. So in June of 2006 I took a ride in the new 26 deck at the regatta and I have never experienced quality and performance like the 26 deck. The test one we rode in (me and my Dad) was awesome handled chop like nothing and we were going so fast it made my dad's wrinkles on his face go away. So we bought the 2nd 26 deck out of the mold and it is just phenomenal the gel coat is awesome and it is a head turner in Havasu. When we first took it to Havasu everyone kept complementing me on the gelcoat and the style of the boat it was a great feeling.
The performance is excellent you never even feel the chop, my Mom who is almost 50 enjoyed the ride and she didnt even know we were going about 75, she's that type that does not like to go fast she's a bayliner type, and once I told her how fast we were going she was amazed of how comfortorable and smooth the ride was. The rigging again was the best in class and was well put together.
This is my 2nd Ultra and wont be my last. The service and the staff is the best and they treat you like family...
