Well, since they're being unveiled at the classic, that's about all we know.  They're going to be pricey.  That's about all I know.

There are a few teaser pics on FB and ***.  Seems interesting, they definitely put a team together of experts that is for sure.  From what I see they have a ways to go until they hit full production, they are still building out the factory in WV.

 

Don't think you have to be a member to see the pictures:

Aluminum first.  Fiberglass still under development and planned to be released later this year.  Bunch of guys from Ranger.  Should be good stuff.

I'm looking at a new one this year. I really like the charger/champion 210. But.. I think I'll wait and see what they have to offer.

 Looks like the new plant in Flippin is just about ready to go.

My take is that after all the Bass Pro takeovers had some of these builders chomping at the bit to do something new, but they had to wait for their non compete contracts to run out.  It's not just Ranger people; other manus are represented as well.

The vexus marketing campaign is so ridiculous. Their videos/promo materials have about 1400 adjectives about quality/performance/engineering/craftsmenship/experience and everything is LEGENDARY. All while not providing any useful information. Just a constant string of word soup. 

 

I really want to slap their marketing people and tell them to knock it off with the superlative's when you haven't sold a single boat yet. 

 

Sorry, just wanted to rant.

Vexus leaked a video a few days back (FB) - got a brief look at a boat.

Looks pretty cool.

Looking forward to seeing more.

It's called hype. Have you seen all the talk over this company and they haven't revealed a single boat yet. I'd say their marketing have done it's job so far. Now if there's all this hype and these boats are no different than any other then I'd say it's it's a failure. We'll see tomorrow.

I'm leaning the other way. I think they'll be competitive with the Lund Renegade and the Ranger RT.

New models can have some growing pains - 

If the price doesn't reflect that - they may not be well received.

I think you're dead wrong. They are marketing this as "Legendary" It's not "Legendary" at a <$30K price point. Something that is "Legendary" commands more money.

At first glance it looks like the front of that what I’m assuming is aluminum model boat in the video should sit low more like a glass boat which really peaked my interest. Upon further examination, maybe not. For an aluminum boat it sure does seem to have the curves.

Or by legendary they mean top of the line, top notch craftsmanship at a price the average Joe can afford?
