Captain's ReportThe Tango’s 16’ length overall, and her deep-V hull help avoid the pancaking and bottoming out that jetboats with a less pronounced V are prone to. Her wide, flared bow deflects spray and helps increase visibility, especially into her standard side-mounted rear view mirror, that is so important when towing a skier. Yes, the Tango’s Mercury XR2 engine has all the necessary gumption to pull a skier. And the passengers aboard will be plenty comfortable also. There’s seating for three in her large forward cockpit, and those removable, patented, formed vinyl-covered, foam-filled seats include orthopedically-designed backrests to avoid the back injuries which can occur when you come down hard off a sea. Under each of those seats are stowage areas and there’s plenty more stowage throughout the boat. The easy-to-read instrumentation features large, backlit numbering and there’s even a pressure shower to wash you, and the boat, down. With a top end of 52 mph, you’ll get where you’re going quickly, too. At that speed you’ll travel 60 miles. Slow her down to a cruising rpm and she’ll stretch to almost 100 miles. If that’s not cruising in style, what is? This Tango dances just the way you want to.
