Boat Reviews By Owners

1995 -- 15' 3" SAILFISH

Model: 150

Cockpit: Center cockpit typical with forward cooler seat. Swingback helm seat is 36" wide and makes it tough to get to the stern. Replaced mine with a 32" that helped that problem alot.


Construction: Very well built, heavy hull. Would like to have more locker space rather then livewell or fish oriented layout. My dealer put this boat on too small/ light bunk trailer. It is HEAVY.

Handling: At top speed(34 MPH)it handles well with a 2-3 person load and 70hp OB. Its max capacity of 750# seems a bit much for this heavy a hull and top 75hp OB rating. Trim tabs or motor mounted fin needed to keep bow down at slow speed. Whaler style hull not as nice riding as a "real" Whaler though.

Engine Room: 1995 FORCE 70 was a cheap motor to package with this boat. Must have kept the price down. 1997 FORCE 75, which has more torque, didn't do much for speed or handling when I took a day to switch back and forth. Would not use a 4-cycle OB on this boat; needs the hole shot of a 2-cycle.

General Comments: General family fun, tubing, and skiing of smaller folk is great with this boat. Water conditons of up to 2.5' safe at speed, but look out for cross winds!. Dad will get a bigger ocean hull and feel OK about the kids using this sturdy craft. It's holding its resale value very well too.
