    I went to the Fl. Sportsman Show in Tampa and
    fell in love with my next boat....It's not a Micro,
    but It's the real deal!!!!!
    It's a brand new model, introduced at the show...
    The Young Gulfshore 20.
    Beautiful!
    I don't have any pics-didn't plan on taking any...
    But I think they have a hit on their hands and you
    will read about it soon!

    Looks cool but correct me if im wrong, its basically a mako or an old 18 wellcraft, basically a mini center console. But still cool a tjats the perfect boat for my area

    I would love to see pics of the "Gulfshore". Did they use the same bottom of the 20 or is it a new design?

    I saw the picture before I read the post and I did the, "nice renegade" in my brain. My understanding was they had a great ride quality for the nearshore.

    I've seen them before, I'm not a fan, it looks like they took a ski boat or crusier and converted it. The whole positive sheer deal is odd because as we all know the reason skinny water boats are build like that is to minimize the wind cross section, so while it looks nice it would work against you. I'd say if you get rid of the platform it would be a decent bay/near shore boat, but with 12 degrees of deadrise in the rear and minimum draft of 11 inches I'd say calling this a flats boat is a bit optimistic ;)

    Brett you just need to ass about 1400lbs to yours so the stats match ;)

    FC, adding another 1400 lbs pushes it out of micro-class.  :eek:

    CR, it's easier than rebuilding a 1992 yami 150.
    If you decide to build a hull, I'd be happy to watch and offer useless advice.

    CR, I think It's a mod to their hull...Tunnel, Not a CC.
    It has a stand up helm with a raised "Raptor" style
    consol on top of the rear deck...It was causing a stir
    at the show...There are pics on facebook of the
    Gulfshore they had at the show.
    It's VERY nice, beautiful fit and finish and a lot of open
    space. At a good price point less than 40K.
    Must see to appreciate! JMVHO... ;) Dave
