2016-2018 21VLX Top Speed

Recommended Posts

I know most of the time these boats are surfing at 11mph.  But does anyone barefoot behind a 21 VLX?  What is the top speed for these boats? No ballast, 2-3 people in boat, etc.   Anyone have comparsion for the 410 vs. the 450?

 

thanks in advance.

Top speed is about 41/42 mph.  That is stock prop whatever that prop is.

@Kenw I actually found my spec sheet.  My prop is the Standard 15 x 14 - 948.

I did this past weekend.  Cousin has a 2017 21VLX and we went out to his lake house for the day.  Did a couple long line runs once we verified it could hit 41+.  I think we maxed out at 41.3mph.  It was just the two of us before sundown so no one to video but we may go back out this weekend.

Do you know if he has the 410 or the 450 in his boat?

I don't think you can get the 450 on the 21VLX.

I think it was an option but this being more of a budget boat I can’t imagine finding one.

My 2017 has the 410.

I just checked, and you are right.  It was not an option on the 2017s, but it was a $7898 option on the 2018.  I’m not sure who would put a 450 in the 21vlx though.  The 410 was plenty for me in my 2017 outside of high altitude (Tahoe) and fully slammed.
