The skeeter is a very nice boat. I was ready to sign papers on a 2013 sx200 w/ a Yamaha 150, until I looked at Nautic star. For the same price, you get over a foot more of boat, and much more storage. Not to take away from skeeter, but they are pricey. Nautic star is light, slightly rougher ride. I picked mine up for $36,000 w/ the new 200 Yamaha 4 cylinder, and a tandem axle magic tilt. Over 5 mpg at cruise, and 51.5 mph at wot. Nautic star also has great customer service in my experience. Saw my boat being built at the factory in Amory, and was given a tour by the owner's son. He gave me his cell number, and has given me his full attention when I've called with questions. Excellent customer service means a lot.
