Default Boat question - chaparral

Hi Winnipesaukee community,
I am looking at upgrading my boat to a new Chaparral and on the fence between the 23 SSI and 237 SSX. There is about a $25K price difference between the two boats (when attempting to match for engines, etc). It seems that the SSX has a deeper V hull. Unfortunately, due to shortages in inventory, I have only seen the SSX but not the SSI. Can anyone comment on whether this is a huge difference and if you think the extra cost for the SSX is justified? Any input / advise is appreciated.
Best,
Gene

I would go with the SSX.

All new for 2021, the incredible 237 SSX packs more elegance, performance and innovation than family boaters have ever experienced at this widely popular length. There's no mistaking that the style lines, attention to detail and efficient use of space is SSX at its very best. Compared to other luxury bowriders in this popular size range, the 237 has a clear cut edge when it comes to seating capacity, legroom, storage space and performance.
Just my opinion.

You know, if you are going to do it, the lake sometimes gets rough on weekends.

The 307SSX (Now the 317SSX) will give you a nice ride! Just sayin'
