Checkmate adds 55 MPH 20 ft model

Boatermouth is reporting that Checkmate is adding a 20 ft V-bottom model powered by a 115 HP outboard capable of speeds reaching 55 MPH. It will cost you $29,995 for the new 2000 BXR. More details are coming soon. This should be a fairly inexpensive way to get on the water and go fast. Doug Smith, Checkmate’s owner compares the model to a Bayliner:

“With the 115-hp engine, the boat runs 55 mph and gives the buyer a real performance-boating experience,” said Smith. “If you put the same buyer in a Bayliner, the boat runs 35 mph—it’s a slug. And when he goes to sell it, it won’t be worth anything.”
