Full Review:

We bought our boat new in 2010. It’s been a great family boat. Lots of room! We have had as many as 16 people on the boat at one time, some of them kids though. If I had one complaint it’s the size of the wake. Pulling a tube the rope can get caught in the tail prop wash. I know this is not a ski boat by design and a tower would help, we just have the eye on the back of the boat. I have found taller tubes do better. Over all our 252 Ex has been a great boat for us! Crownline has always had very comfortable interiors. Very well laid out boat. Never felt like the 350 mag, Bravo 3 set up has left me needing more power. Planes easy and has a top speed of about 48-50 mph. I would recommend this boat.
