[Give me your] thoughts on a new 110 Sport versus a 12-foot Impact. [Are there] any pro's and con's would be helpful [to make a decision on which to buy]?

Unless you are restricted to an under-12-foot boat, why don't you just get a older 13 Sport? Get a boat that has enough room to do stuff with. The IMPACT was a very pricey boat and had up to 40hp on it, where the 110 is limted to 25-HP. Get a older 13 with a 40-HP. Good luck.

Impact caught my eye as an ideal tender. Will fit on fly bridge 12-foot 6-inches by x 5-foot 6-inches with [1000-lb] davit. The newer 110 Sport with console seem cheaper in maybe too many ways. Also I think Impact can use higher horsepower [engine].

ESSENTIALS--Based on your name and the cryptic style of your writing in which you employ as many acronyms and abbreviated forms of words as possible (and which I have tried to expand in order to improve the readability), it seems to me that you are something of a minimalist. If this carries over to your boating, then get the smaller, lighter, and simpler of the two boats you are considering.

The IMPACT was made precisely for use as a yacht tender. It had a very short production history, perhaps only a year or two, and particularly in North America. They may have been available in Europe for a few years longer. If you are seeking a yacht tender, the IMPACT may be more attractive. I believe the short production may have been due to poor sales. At one point the IMPACT was being included in the purchase of larger Brunswick-owned yachts (such as very large SEA RAY yachts) as a free incentive, and there was speculation that this was because they were not selling well on their own.

jimh Essentials name is used for shopping for the essentials for the boat ESSENTIAL ELEMENT a 490 meridian phmy seems the 12' impact could be justified as an essential need for such a boat lol

the 13' would be great however I only have 12'6" max lenth to spare on fly bridge without hanging to far off.

MINIMAL: Definately not me lol we all have our own meaning to essential needs mine happens to be about 10 boats and a couple of hummers ideal for the 490 would be a 12' Impact with a 9' racked above the Impact

Nevermind.Your a slick one sometimes,have to keep an eye on you lol yea,sounds like the Impact would be ideal for what you want.

yea, impact seems to be the right one, just need to find the right one out of the very few on the market.whaler tech support guys say they were a great boat. wasnt 2001 the nike era of whaler? they say sales were hurt by the 16k-18k price in 2001 on a 12' boat. but most 40hp seem to be asking around 10k-12k in good cond. I need to do some more searching an maybe some offers to find the real price there selling for.
