Wanted to know if anyone had info on a 1991 21 walkaround with 225 Mercury. I am considering purchasing one and would appreciate any comments.

Check for the topic in performance section in July. You will need to expand the time frame to allow you to go back that far. Hope it helps. I am still looking for one myself or a 25 revenge

I own a 1993 21'Walkaround with a 225 Evinrude. I am thrilled with this boat with the possible exception of some pounding in a short chop. Make sure it has trim tabs. It is a very dry boat. We overnight on it quite frequently and have the full Mills canvas for the cockpit. ps mine runs mid-50mph range with bottom paint and trailers nicely. You can see the boat on cetecea page 49.

Thanks Jeff,my only problem with the boat is the loss of fishing space on the bow. I've never owned a walk around, or cuddy cabin before, only center consoles. Do you know why BW stopped production of this boat?

Another owner of one of these boats told me, that he was told, BW stopped making the boat after only two years. Evidently, it was extremely costly to manufacture, and they couldn't price it high enough to prevent losing money on it. Accordingly, sales were slow. This might be bad news for Boston Whaler, but good news for the purchaser. It is a very high quality boat, made to BW's previous high standards of the Classics. There are some good pictures of one of these in the Rendezvous section. The boat needs 225 or 250 HP for optimum performance.

The 21 Outrage became the sucessor to this hull, with more of a "smirk" added to the
bow configuration.

Just curious, did you buy the 21 foot walkaround?

Not yet. It's down between that boat and a 1993 21 outrage with a 250 Yamaha. Both nice boats, both really good deals.

If you decide not to go for the walkaround, could you let me know. I might be interested.
