FUN STUFF: That hull is one key to the boat’s success. It features enough V forward to part the chop of rough water with ease, but softens that angle as you move aft to offer exceptional stability. That combination makes the boat attractive to both newcomers and experienced riders, as well as makes it a match for a wide variety of riding conditions. Even performance types will find something to like in this tamer powered machine. Slightly rounded chines allow the boat to easily roll into a turn, and produce that inside-lean handling that is so desirable. Crank the VX around in calmer waters and it displays an aggressive side that guarantees you won’t get quickly bored.
