Here not sure how good this pic is. I delivered that boat to the dealer, it was one of my favorites.


YES, local small dealer my home... almost purchased it. don't think they never got anymore checks after initial package.

I have a 2020 Pulsare 2400 Long deck with a 300R and it was the 2nd last boat built in Bucyrus so I assume it came from the mold you are referring to but I am not aware what was different in this mold versus those made after 2015?

I don't think I am allowed to post pictures? It says enter the URL of your picture but I have them on drive. I could send one to your e-mail if you wish and provide it. You can send me a PM and I will send you the picture to your e-mail if you wish.

The original 2400 long deck boat had a carpeted interior. The new 2400 long deck is in the style of the 2400 BRX with the molded in floor and cockpit area. Not a lot of pictures of the new style out there.

OK, thanks, I know what you mean now. Yes mine is a liner boat like the BRX's. I recall Dean telling me that around this time they moved the windshield / seating forward slightly to better balance the boat and reduce the tendency for porpoising. I think that was done on both the BRX and Long Deck. I usually cruise around 30 mph and at that speed I always have to keep my 2400 trimmed all the way in (negative trim I believe) to ensure it does not porpoise. The weight of the 300R with 10" of setback probably does not help any.

Exactly, none of the designs are good.

Keep it simple or do all single color.
