You may like the slightly longer 21' Entertainer as well. I've had an outboard Eluder, and now have a Enchanter (closed bow version of the Entertainer) and like it even more (slightly faster with the same power, more room, handles chop a little better.)

A few more Eluders made than Entertainers, a little easier to find a nice one. But the extra 2’ is nice if it will fit in your driveway or garage
You know I found this on a search and really like it...the only thing it's missing that I really want are the exhaust pipes out the hull at the water level...I'm surprised they all don't have that...was that an option back in the day? The sound is amazing. Now that I'm older maybe I would like the quieter version, who knows...thank you for the link....
