Boating Magazine calls the 298 SSX a "great ride". (3/15/2007)


More excerpts from the April, 2007 issue of Boating Magazine:


"Packing up to 640 horses under its hatch, the 298 SSX can take the punishment all that power is bound to provoke."


"Twist the key and fire the engines. Gauge needles jump to attention as the Corsa Quick and Quiet exhaust produces the satisfying rumble of just-roused V-8's."


"Boasting a highly raked entry that warps aft into a steep transom deadrise, the 298 SSX took everything I put it through with grace. Whip into a turn. You'll pull progressive g's instead of being hurled into a corner, the turning radius and heel angle smoothly increasing. Posting a time to plane of 3.2 seconds, and doing so without exceeding 5 degrees of inclination, makes it great for tubing and provides excellent visibility, even with crew seated in the bowlounge. It rides soft, allowing you to freely use its power to charge through chop. I'd have no qualms taking the 298 SSX offshore."
