Been looking at buying a new boat for the last two years as mine was creeping up in hours. Also wanted ZO and open bow. Ended up ordering a 17 prostar which my son and designed online. Boat showed up today , up and down the lake to break in and roped it up. I'm in love with it. Fit finish are top notch. ZO took all about 30 seconds to figure out. Bimini is amazing. So easy to set up. Open bow is roomy and will please the family. Hoping the reliability will resemble my 1999 SN . I expected such a large boat to be sluggish compared to my 1999. I was wrong this bad boy has some balls. Barefoot speeds should be no problem. Mastercraft did an amazing job matching my cartoon rendition we did online. The Interface is awesome but I'm still nervous. As I'm not comfortable with technology in a boat. I pray no failures !! As it is pretty dam cool. Went eith all seating and carpet. No need for bow lid or racks.
