Possible boat purchase in Open Lake Discussion Posted February 9, 2014 · Edited February 9, 2014 by Trout Bum I looked at the Fury XL Sport last year when it first came out. At the time I had a 1600 Fury SS that was 2 years old but I wanted a full windshield. I was just about ready to pull the trigger on the 1625 and then the dealer got in a Rebel 1650 XL Sport. I really liked the extra room in the Rebel. So, I started pricing one out. In the end, with the same motor (60hp Merc 4-stroke) the cost was only about $2,000.00 more. I ordered one and couldn't be more happy. It's on the small side for Lake O. and I have to be selective when I go out there. However, it the largest I could fit in the garage and still have access all around it along with my wife's car. Being in my 70's it's still manageable both on and off the trailer for me. I have had much larger (up to 28') glass boats but for my current situation, this works great. Bottom line, if you can handle it and afford it, go bigger. If not, take a good hard look at the Rebel 1650 XL before jumping on the Fury 1625.
