I don't know where you come up with $140k for a YF24. I priced one out last year and it was significantly cheaper than that. Then again, I don't think you're saving any money on this boat at $170. I do think you're saving close to a year in build time; but, I digress....

26 Barker bay boat rides as good if not better than a 31 Yellowfin

I rode in a canoe once down the river and it rode as good if not better than a Freeman.

I realize most guys not from SW FL do not know Mr. Fischer, but he is probably the best and most repected guide in all of SWFL. He knows his shit better than most.

The boat is amazing and there is a lot of haters on here. Its only for a select few that can spend that kinda of money.

But if a 31 YF with a 24 degree deadrise rides worse than a 26 foot bayboat with much less deadrise and weight then we got some serious problems going on here.

Wylie will be sueing now because his big YF boats cant ride as good as a bayboat

Beautiful boat and it will sell close to asking price.

I owned a 31 yellowfin for 5 years. Won FLW Kingfish angler of the year Out of that boat. I loved that boat. I'm just giving you my honest opinion. I truly could care less if you don't believe me. The 26 Barker I own. I think it rides as good or better then anything in its class. Until you ride in one. How can you pass judgment. I'm just giving everyone my professional opinion. I had two friends with me when we got caught in 3 to 4ft seas. They both said the same thing. This rides as good as your old Yellowfin. Not a knock on Yellowfin at all. Just Kevin's boat is bad ass!!!!!!!!

That diamond stitch pattern is sick! My favorite touch, hands down. RV business must be booming.
