Deadrise 17 HPX-V vs. 17 HPX-S

Recommended Posts

Trying to compare the dead rise of these 2 boats. The maverick website doesn't publish a dead rise for the S. It looks like it has some in the photos. Does anyone know?

 

Thanks in adviance.

The 17S is a 2 degree boat. I went from a V to an S if you have any questions. LOVE THE S!

Hello, I'm between buying a V or S. Can you give me your opinion on why you love about the S and maybe compare the ride quality and draft of the two?

Thank in advance,

Vinnie

Really depends on what type of fishing you plan to do. Where are you located?

DRAFT: The S is 2-3 inches shallower in draft. That may not seem like a lot but it all depends on the areas you fish.

RIDE: The V is going to have a smoother less "pounding ride" due to the dead-rise. However I will argue that the S is actually drier. Its nearly impossible to get wet in the boat.

POLEABILITY: The 17S and 17V is very close in pole ability... I would give the nudge 17S.

Than you! I'm in the Matlacha, Pine Island area. I feel the 2-3" could definitely help where I fish... Giving me extra time on a shallow flat with an outgoing tide etc... Plus i'm used to having the jack plate on my current setup.
