Including complete boat cover Stingray weighs into this class with the 200MS. After testing the 200MS, powered by the Mercuryâs new 4.3 EFI â I would rather call the 200MS a sporty utilitarian performance boat. Thatâs SUPERB for short. If you want utility in a boat in the 20-foot range, a centre-console layout is the obvious one. With a pair of swivelling seats behind the console, a jump seat infront of it, a cushioned engine box and some seating in the bow, the 200MS still has plenty of open cockpit space for fishing, diving or watersports. As for sporty, that usually means (with a centre-console at least) that the hull and deck design has modern, flowing lines and a moulded-in swim platform. The way 200MS does performance, though, is a different matter. The 200 MS is fast enough, reaching a top speed of 42 mph at 4,450 rpm with power. In acceleration tests, the boat goes from a standstill to 20 mph in 7.2 seconds, reaching 30 mph in 10.44 seconds. The 4.3 EFI, one of the new generation of clean-burning, is laden with torque and would make an ideal powerplant for the serious fisherman. For those more comfortable with the performance and price of gasoline engines, company tests have shown almost identical speeds with gasoline-powered 4.3-litre V-6 Mercury MerCruiser sterndrives. Like all Stingrays, the 200MS is equip-ped with the companyâs patented Z-plane hull. That design uses Z-shaped strakes that contribute added lift (for quick planing) and tight cornering capabilities. But any 20-footer that falls into the SUPERB category had to have an edge in the kind of performance that will really count. It has to be able to handle itself in big waves and rough weather. Thatâs not easy for 20-footers powered by outboards or even traditionally configured sterndrives. The 200MS, though, is driven by a sterndrive linked to a midships-mounted engine by a jackshaft. With rear-mounted engines as the standard sterndrive configuration, you often forget about the beneficial effects of a mid-mounted powerplant. The boat usually planes more readily and is better-balanced. In this case, the result is a 20-footer that handles waves and rough water better than many 24-footers. The other major advantage of a mid-engine â along with a padded engine hatch for additional seating â is a wide-open aft cockpit, ideal for fishing or watersports. While the boat I tested with the optional T-top would be ideal for fishing, thereâs also an optional towing tower â perfect for wakeboarders who want to get big air. Stingray adds the usual fishing amenities. Thereâs a well-designed round-edged livewell in the middle of the aft deck area, with a large drained fishbox (also great for storing wet lines or other gear) to each side. Thereâs rod storage in the coamings, built-in tackle trays in the side of the console and flush-mounted rod holders in the aft side decks. Recessed cleats, helping avoid snagged fishing lines, are a thoughtful touch. A portable cooler fits neatly into a locker/jump seat forward of the centre console. Thereâs even more storage in drained lockers under the bow seats; the centre-console locker is huge. With a full fibreglass liner, the cockpit cleans up easily with a hose and scrub brush. Your fishing buddies might not mind the grime, but your sporty pals will appreciate your boatâs ability to change roles with ease.
