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!
