Not going to go into a review, its a great boat and reviews have already been done. Ill just post some real time photos for you all to enjoy along with some performance data. I dont think anyone has run the weight I have yet or played around with props so..

2019 SE 550 with 3 people on board, running 1k in lead and 650lb PNP bags in the rear locker. Ballast total is hovering around the 6300lb mark. Running a 16x15 with some funky cup in it. Performance wise, the boat surfs at a staggering 3100 Rpm in the mid 11s, and only 3300 in the mid 12's and thats with the ballast listed above and 3 people inside the cabin. Factory weight surfs around 2700Rpm :eek:

I think she has a ton more room to go up in either people weight or ballast but I like it enough now to leave it alone. For perspective the big guy in the photo on the goofy side is around 6'5 and I am around 5'8 riding the regular side.

Quite impressive so far. The performance is really something else all around especially in the efficiency category. A big boat shouldnt be able to run like that with that v drive reduction and weight but it does.

Really something else....

Boat is spectacular. Smooth as silk. Skierís is on fire with this one. I have taken a few cues from this SE to take to my Makai and step it up a notch. I am not gonna get to SE levels though; itís in a class by itself!

Great pictures, the SE I feel will convert a lot of other brand owners over to Skiers Choice. Just plain AMAZING!

I didn't realize the 550 got a gear reduction thought the 450 was the only one to get it? Unless i read that wrong, i I'd like some info on the prop for my 17 SE550

It didnt get a reduction change which is why its that much more impressive. It still has the 1.5-1 in the 550.
