    Looking at buying a Nitro Savage Series or 911 CDC
from Lufkin TX (208.128.3.2)

Rated:

 I currently own a very old boat and want to upgrade. I have been very impressed with the Nitro Savage and the 911 CDC just seems awesome. I know some people who own older Nitro's, but none that own a Savage Series and no one that owns a 911 CDC. I understand that Nitro has the same hull design as Skeeter. Has anyone experienced problems with their Savage? Has anyone ridden in the 911 CDC or own one? The big reason why I like Nitro is that you get a bigger bang for your buck. Although Ranger, Bass Cat and Champions are nice they just don't impress me for the money you spend. The Nitro appears to have better storage than those boats. Anyway, any and all feedback will help my objectivity whether it be negative or positive. Thanks!

 This sounds like a leader but I will bite: hehehe On the advise of many we switched to the 896 Savage and run them on an almost daily basis. Problems encountered to day: Handles to lock boxes are made of plastic and break occasionally. That's it, none others. Are we happy? Based on previous experiences with other boats we are estatic. Would I recommend them: With 5 stars.

 I own a 1996 884 dual console Savage. You are right the hull design is the same as Skeeter. I also bought the boat because I thought it was the best for the money. You are also right about the storage on the boat. I believe it has better storage than most boats, in fact it has too much storage. I have not had any problems with the boat at all. I run a 150 EFI Mercury and would also highly recommend the motor with the boat. I would highly recommend the boat to anyone. The only thing I would not recommend is the second console. The boat will have much more room without the second console. Just a note, the 911 CDC is an all composite boat and the Savage line is not.
   Boats other than nitro from Jim (206.105.157.143)  5/5/1999 9:28:00 PM
 Why arent you impressed with champions, rangers, etc. from what ive heard and seen from guys on the water nitro's build quality is shaky at best. for the money i think you could do way better with a champ, or a ranger or triton. the 911 cdc is over 30 grand. you can get a tr20 or 193 champ for that kind of money. they will run circles around any nitro. dont get me wrong i like the concept of the 911 and the storage layout on the savage is great.in my opinion features arent everything to me quality is far more important. you will not find a better built boat than a champion or a ranger. i think you could get a better built boat that will hold its value way better down the road if you choose something other than nitro.If you have your heart set on the nitro by all means go for it nobody should tell you what to buy or not buy i just want to give you some room for thought.
   Good Value from Mike (208.128.3.2)  5/6/1999 9:38:00 AM
 I have now owned three Nitro Savages, I guide full time and fish tournaments. I am not sponsered by Nitro so have no reason to endorse there product other than having good experiences. As a rebuttle to the above reference to Ranger, Champion and Triton. The 911 CDC will be about the same price or a little more than Trition, Ranger and Champion boats of there size,this will depend on the dealer you are talking to. The Savage 912, 896 and 884 will be more cost effective than the other boats of there size. You do not have to beleive me, go price them at any dealer. I would tell you this, if I had the money to spend I would not get a Ranger, Triton or Champion. I would buy a Bass Cat. The rough water ride is superior to any other boat on the market and the quality is outstanding. I know 4 people who own Bass Cats and I fish out of them quite a bit. Anyway, as far as quality is concerned, Nitro may no have wood in the dash and some other extras, but it is a good quality boat. And Pete is right about the dual console, I have always owned dual consoles because of my customers and it adds to the resale but would not recommend them to someone who does not turn a boat often. This statement would include any boat on the market though and not just Nitro. Don't get me wrong, Ranger, Champion, and Triton's are also quality boats but go out and spend some time shopping boats and you will find that you are paying for the name of the boat more than you are quality when you start knit picking. You have started at the right place because you will get various comments from everyone on this board and mine is by no means a say all. Good luck and spend some time looking around.
   Ride in one on rough water...after you recover.. from k2c (148.127.68.8)  5/7/1999 2:31:00 PM
 Take a ride in one on rough water and after your bruises are healed, go take a ride in a Bass Cat or a Champion. You'll understand the difference is not on the outside or in the storage boxes. It's comfort and stability. The roughest rides I've ever experienced have been in Skeeters, Rangers and the brand new Nitro 911. Thought my kidneys had been transplanted and relocated to my shoulder blades.
   Rough water Rides from James (208.128.3.2)  5/7/1999 6:00:00 PM
 I own a 884 single console savage. The rough water ride is good but it is not as good as champion or bass cat. But you also need to take in consideration the definition of rough water. I dont care what anyone says, anything over 3 foot swells cannot be a comfortable ride. Bass cat and champion are not build for speed, they are heavy boats built for plowing. So, when you go out looking for boats you will need to determine if you want a speed hull or a plow hull. I believe that Nitro, Skeeter and Triton have made a good comprimise between speed and rough water ride. If you want a rough ride you need to take a ride in a Gambler, Bullet or a Blazer!
