21 Challenger/Shadow/Super Boat splash? I like the red and black, assuming all composite materials? Any infusion/vacuum bagging to make it lighter and achieve the triple digit speeds? A 300R would be an awesome setup.

hi Sundance,

yes, the V21 is all vacuum bagged and composites construction. The 300R would be great on this hull. The 300R is priced around $24K. There are other Merc V8's built on the same platform but less expensive like around $18K+

you can view those less expensive Mercury Motors, called 300L here --> New Mercury FourStrokes | Jaco's Marine

That hull looks like it would be a sweet performer in some small chop. I have not had a lot of experience in small V hulls over 70mph but the ones I have run started to chine walk on smooth water over that speed and became a challenge to run. Of course, that could have been the operators fault. How’s that beauty do on smooth water?

I’m familiar with the other versions, but the 300R is a significant increase in power over the 300 4-stroke and 300 Pro XS. Plus, you need a Sportmaster lower to run anywhere near 100, so that limits your choice to the R. Excited to see one of these in the water, what’s a completed hull and deck cost ready for rigging? Great to see a modern version of this classic being built!

Hi

This particular bottom is a padded keel and when you get the hang of it, you're running on a flat bottom area where the hull is hooked up and running flat with no chine walk

For a 21 foot long boat, this is deep enough to have plenty of fun

also, whenever you want to go out by yourself, this is less work than taking the bigger boat out which is a big chore

Hi,

Yes, this hull can be made with a bay-boat topside

Predator also has a catamaran 25 footer CC, the 23 foot Kryptonite CC and closed deck Krypto

Yes, that's Predator Powerboats, owned by Arnaldo. The logo is their newly designed logo, so I'd say this is a fairly recent (last 2 years) pic?


This one looks like the V25CC Deep V, that hull bottom won many a races in its day when it was in race-format. This could also be the Kryptonite 23' hull being built at Predator as well.

rod holders and live-well are installed in back of the leaning post. Rod holders are installed from astern all the way to the bow on the gunnel. Rocket launchers will be installed on the T-top or arch, which ever one a customer orders.

Some customers delete the live well and rod holders and just want the CC layout for room and comfort with no plans to ever fish.
