I am seriously in the market, and over the weekend, I tested an new Nantucket and new Outrage. The Outrage had Verado power, which was awesome. Problem is 56K is a lot of money for a 21 footer, before electronics.
Two local dealers have 2004 leftovers, one with a 175 Opti, one with a 225 XLEFI. Is the 225 XLEFI 4S or 2S technology?
With the 225, dealer is quoting a leftover price around 48K. Good deal?

I can answer a couple of your questions so here goes! I bought a 2004 leftover 210 Outrage with the 200 HP optimax on it. The boat moves very well and has plenty of power so I would assume the 225 would be more than enough. I would also be leary of a 210 Outrage with only a 175, but I have no personal experience. My boat was came with trailer, the motor, and the boat, the only option the boat has is the 200 instead of the 175. Otherwise is stripped down minus the addition of the comfort package and mine came out to just over $37k after factory Whaler discounts and I ended up with an extended warranty on the motor (7 years I believe). It is a great boat and is well worth the price!

37k for a brand new 21 Outrage. That is the best deal I've ever seen on new.
MC- I'm looking at a similar deal, 2004 leftover 22 Dauntless with a 225 four stroke. Some goodies but I can't get them below 49k.
Not sure it's the best deal out there considering the 2006's are just about out.

Here's a comparsion on a used 2003 OR 21' with a Yam/Merc 225 4 stroke on the back.

First of all, 48K for a leftover with 225 4 stroke is a great deal as long as the boat isn't bare in the options dept. I need to know the optiopns list to tell for sure. DO NOT get 175 if you want good hole shot performance. Mine had a 175 on it before I bought it. With just me, the salesman and 150# of fuel it was OK. With four passengers, coolers, 95 gallons fuel it would be a dog. Check the perofrmance specs on Whaler's site or ask the Judge, he's run my boat also. By the way, my 2004 with 225 Merc/Yamaha, T-top, leaning post, comfort package,aluminum trailer cost 52K. Let us know what you come up with....
