OK, which would make a better all around family lake/inland boat.

GTX-18 or Temtation 2000?

OK, OK, I know you guys hate these types of questions.

I was hoping for some subjective info like "temptation 20'S" has no deck space or "GTX is too rough riding" etc.

I think the Temptation 2000 often had the Whaler Drive option. That makes it quite a bit more boat than the 18-GTX.

The GTX was most commonly as I/O, too. The outboards seem rare.

I don't know about the new ones, but the GTX with a 260 Mercruiser is the best Wakeboard/Ski/Cruiser I've ever seen. It does everything well,including holding/increasing value. Plus it is unusual enough to be fun, without being weird. Great choice.

Pete:
I vote for the GTX-18. The only one I ever saw was a whaler drive unit. It had a really neet sun deck aft, good storage and made a really good ski platform with the ski pylon. This made for a true resort/summer cottage sport boat. My next choice would be a 17' Newport.
Best
