Has anyone been in the new Phoenix 19PHX? 
 My guess is it has the same hull under it as the 819 or 919.

I saw the new boat at IBEX a couple weeks ago. Beautiful. But no they did not allow attendees to climb aboard.

Well, as promised, I toured the Phoenix boat factory......a 14 hour tip, one way!!!
  Plus, as long as I was in the area, I also toured BassCat and Ranger.
Here's the long and short of the trip (if that's possibel).  All three manufactures were very impressive. I can not see where any one of them skimp on anything.  For the most part, they all build a boat in  basicly/techniclly same way. They all have at least one "dig" on the other guy.
To me, the bottom line is this; Dealer, dealer location, and the bells & whistels that trun your crank.  The bells & whistels pretty much boil down to intieror/layout.

I am getting real close to pulling the trigger on a new rig and I'm stuck between a Ranger 519L and a 19PHX Phoenix.  I counted the Basscat  out ONLY becuase there are no dealers in my area and that's only due to possible service work on the motor.  The chances of having an issue with the boats are slim to none in my opinoin.
I need a drink!!!!

When someone tries to sell me something and puts in a “dig” at their competition, it’s a MAJOR turnoff and I usually walk away. Try to sell me something on your merits, not what the other guy is doing wrong

So sorry for a poor use of a term, (Dig) that's sometimes the problem with how things come across in print, not to mention the source and my poor use of the English language.
"Dig"  was meant to mean "something different"," something unique" to their boat building process compared to the other guy.  Neither of these boat companies put their noses down towards the other in any way shape or form.  Nither company at no time mentioned another boat manufacture by name.

I only wish I had more time to travel the extra miles to tour all the name brands of boats. My guess is they all make a quality boat and they all have/do something just a little different in their process that they feel....sincerely feel, sets them apart for the other guy.   And in my book, that's a good quality to see/have.

No worries because A LOT of sales guys do it; it’s just a major turnoff for me.

Agree on the “feel” part; if it had everything you’re looking for and it’s comfy, take it home
