The Oasis is Manitou's midgrade toons. I have the Aurora which is their cheapest. From the deck down they are the same. Its just the standard features, more options and seating is different.

If that's a 23 Oasis (over 24 foot on the deck) then that's a really good price. That's a heavy boat. Around 3000 pounds dry weight. 150 should push it mid to upper 30's lightly loaded.

Should have the option for the 10 year warranty.

My boat is a 21 Aurora (over 22 foot on the deck). Its 42 MPH with a light load. The 150 HO G2 is like driving a sports car compared to the 4 strokes. Just a lot more fun and the power steering is awesome.

The G1 should be a good fit. But you do have to add oil and will probably be a little less MPG's than the 4 strokes.

The other 2 boats listed would have to be 3 to 4 grand cheaper for me to buy them.

They would be considered your budget brands. Nothing wrong them.

Thanks, Captain. What is your experience like when beaching your Manitou? How much of a list is created by the offset middle toon? I don't really need measurements, just wondering if it is something to consider. Is it enough that it makes it more difficult to keep one's balance when getting down from or walking along the bow?
