Got this boat about 6 years ago
and love everything about it. I have had zero trouble from this boat or
motor. Good riding, quick on plane, and easy to handle. Running a '94
115 yamaha with a 19 pitch Yamaha prop and hydro fin. Could not ask for
a better boat and motor combo. Only dislike is the chine walk it has at
idle speed. Just wish I had a bigger one!

1994 Sprint 275 F/S w/115
Bought the boat used and after
a lot of TLC and tons of various modifications, I couldn't be happier
with the boat. Runs great, gets on plane quick and rides dry. Motor's
been worked, heads shaved, tuner modified, carbs from a 200, carbon
fiber reeds, CMC 10" hydraulic jackplate, 26" Hydromotive
blueprinted & balanced drag prop, hot foot, Garmin GPS, Lowrance
depth finders and the list could go on and on. Great boat for the money
I paid and no regrets at all.

2000 Sprint Pro 290DC w/150+ Merc
Likes: This boat runs
super and is very dependable. I have never had it lay down on me
anywhere anytime. The hull is strong and this boat runs 55 mph with a
load (me) and two tanks of gas. Stout deal and very affordable.
Upholstery and trim, including carpet is very durable.
Very good on gas, I have fish Eufala-Guntersville with it and it does
the job well.
Dislikes: I bought low end graphs in it and should have bought
better but I was on a budget. I have since upgraded it. I waxed the boat
one day and the special wax faded some of the "name" on the
plate that is affixed to the boat stating the model. Real minor, but I
am just pickin here.
Super boat value.

1996 Sprint 286Pro Tournament w/115
When I bought the boat I was
looking for a boat with good floor space as well as good deck
space. I need this for my guide service, the 296 has both.
It also is affordable for a 19 ft. boat.
Chinewalk is hard to get out of them, just keep working it and you'll
get most of it out.

1999 Sprint 296 Pro w/200 Merc
For a 18' class Bassboat it is a great boat for the money. My
Sprint came with a T&H 6" jackplate, hotfoot and Trim on the
wheel. The boat has great speed; with a tournament load I can get
70 mph and with great stability.
Dislikes: I should have thought about the gas tank. Being this was
my first ever boat, it only came with 29 gallon tank and a carburated
175 Johnson. My range is limited on big lakes like Kerry and
Santee Cooper, so I suggest for first time buyers - use this site to
help answer questions you may have.

2000 Sprint 290 Pro/Millenium Edition w/ 99 175
Great boat for the money, rides and handles pretty
good. Speed is great for a boat this heavy. Fit and finish
is good. Storage and fishability is great! Deck layout
couldn't be better, but adding the deck insert makes a great
The only dislike I have now is when fully loaded with my partner and the
livewells are full, the holeshot is SLOW! It's a problem with all
Sprints and the prop guru said it can be fixed with a prop tuning.
I will let you know!!
