Bulletins

Performance Bulletins

These third-party bulletins are provided by Volvo Penta, BoatTest.com, and Mercury Marine. Many
engine/model combinations are available, so these reports can be printed and used to compare the
performance of our Z-plane hull to other manufacturers.

For further comparison information and over 4000 independent boat tests, take advantage of the
Performance Comparison Tool available at iBoatInfo.com.
The iBoatInfo database contains both performance and fuel efficiency test data from many third-party
sources, including engine manufacturers and leading boating publications.

Results on individual boats may vary depending on many factors, including weather and the
condition of the propeller, lower unit, and boat bottom.

Z-Plane Hull

The “ZP” Hull



Just what is a ‘zp’ hull anyway?

Most of the marine industry continues to use the same technology of a century ago. By
incorporating much of the technology from the auto and computer industries, Stingray has set out
to revolutionize the boating industry and bring quality to a new peak.


The exclusive Stingray “zp” or “Z-plane”
hull is the first major step in that direction.

There are no added volumes or surfaces (strakes). Z-planes act as horizontal
planing faces when submerged, and when very near the water’s surface the
outside edge of the Z-plane acts as a spray release. This revolutionary
design passes through the water with no bubbles or vortices formed by the
hull shape.

Developed on the CAD (Computer Aided Design) system, this hull is absolutely fair. The use of
planar lines have caused the hull to be dip-free from whatever angle it is viewed.

The smooth flow of water generated by this design allows the propeller better bite during both
straight line speed and hard cornering maneuvers.

The “zp” hull has a notched transom, adopted from the offshore racing boats, that
allows the drive to be mounted higher to reduce drag and increase performance.

A numerically controlled (NC) router is used to mill full scale models for tooling, bypassing
the manual lofting process entirely. This process reduces prototype cost by more than fifty
percent.

The use of computerized design has taken the accuracy level of manufacturing boats from
1/16″ to 1/1000″ and has allowed for design to be done in 3-D. A scaled 3-D human
model allows Stingray the advantage of designing the boat around you, not just making you fit.



See what third parties are saying about our exclusive Z-plane hull:


Hot Boat Magazine

“Let there be no doubt: there’s something to this Z-plane business, and if
you’re skeptical, all you have to do is check the numbers.”

Have you checked the numbers?
If not, use our Performance
Comparisons
to compare Stingray to other manufacturers you may be considering.


Go Boating Magazine

“Stingray’s zp hull has a racing style notched transom, allowing
the engine to be mounted higher for less drag, enhanced fuel efficiency
and better top speed.”


Motorboating & Sailing Magazine

“Design goals include turning smoothness and running efficiency – with an
estimated 15- to 20-percent higher top speed and 20- to 30-percent better
fuel economy than most of the competition, based on industry data from
last year’s similar models.”


Boating Life Magazine

“Originally conceived to improve handling, the ZP hull design actually
effected an increase in speed and a decrease in fuel consumption.”

“The design also stabilizes the ride at high speeds.”


Trailer Boats Magazine

“From the introduction of the Z-plane hull, computer-aided design and
manufacturing processes have made Stingray a leader in high-technology
boat building.”


Powerboat Magazine

“Originally, the idea behind the ZP design was to make a boat safer, but
Fink found an unexpected, albeit welcome advantage-it’s fast.”


Hot Boat Magazine

“The design has made the Stingray hull one of powerboating’s most
efficient platforms, and its unusually high efficiency rating has
enabled a generation of family boaters to derive maximum impact from
their allotted horsepower ratings. In fact, Stingray owners under
small-block power routinely report performance levels equivalent to
those owning similarly styled craft under big-block muscle.”

“Putting the LX through a day’s worth of paces reminded us once again
that Stingray has made a science out of boating ergonomics.”


Hot Boat Magazine

“The Z-plane, originally pioneered by company founder Al Fink in an
effort to enhance his hull design’s turning capabilities, has added
a distinct performance dimension to a lineup that is consistently
faster and quicker than most every other production offering in its
respective class.”

“Moving through the midrange, the Stingray’s positive, nicely guided
ride was free of porpoise or hop, and it maintained its pure
drivability and obedient, responsive nature. Even in water rougher
than we had a right to be in, it was free of rattle and vibration,
further evidence of its stout workmanship and sound rigging.”


Hot Boat Magazine

“Not only did the boat turn better and lose the tendency to ventilate
the prop, but it also ran faster with the same amount of horsepower.”

Stingray 180RX from Boating Life

The Fast and The Curious from Boating World

“At its top speed of 60 mph, you will likely get some curious onlookers at the lake, and you’ll even be able to wave back to them thanks to the stable ride even at terminal speed.”

 

Dog Fight – MerCruiser vs. Volvo Penta from Trailer Boats

(2004/02)

“At that speed the boat does indeed ride free, gently floating on air mostly.”

 

Stingray 195LR from Boating Life
(2004/01)

Boat Test – Stingray 195LX from Power Boating Canada

Diesel Power from Great Lakes Angler
(2003/02)

205LR

Stingray 205 Series from Power Boating Canada
(2008/07)

“There was no slipping or sliding when, at 50 mph and continuing to trim, I hit the sweet spot and began to accelerate to 60.”

210LR

Performance Tested – Stingray 210LR from Go Boating
(2007/10)

“With current fuel prices, an important consideration for many boaters is fuel consumption. With the performance provided by the 210LR we feel the craft isn’t very thirsty for the level of performance.”

 

DockTalk>just cruisin’ from Trailer Boats

210LX

(2011/03)

“Le 215 CR est un petit cruiser facile ˆ remorquer qui est parfait pour celui qui commence une famille, et qui dŽsire partager sa passion pour le motonautisme avec elle, sans compltement mettre de c™tŽ les sensations de performance de son ancien bateau sport de cŽlibataire.”

 

It’s About the Little Things from Power Boating Canada
(2010/12)

“The 215CR is a trailerable cuddy that’s built for the guy who’s starting a new family, wants to take them out on the water to share his passion, but isn’t ready to give up the true performance and speed of his old boat.”





215LR

A Spacious Deck Boat That’s Sure to Please from Lakeland Boating
(2011/07)

“It has the deck boatÕs spaciousness that also delivers an adrenaline-pumping performance without the flat-bottom, pounding ride that some deck boats can deliver. In fact, this boat performs like a vee hull, while not compromising its skinny-water, drive-up draft of just 17 inches.”

 

Southern Stingray from Boating World
(2011/04)

“Stingray gets you off to a good start, loading up your 215LR with a list of 27 value-added standard features that most builders call options.”

Stingray 220DR from Power Boating Canada
(2006/07)

“It’s a model designed to be all things to all people in terms of family enjoyment and water activities.”

 

Top-Notch from Go Boating
(2006/06)

“It only took slight adjustments in the trim to air it out for top speed or to push the nose down for aggressive cornering—we usually have to use a lot more trim to do this on other boats.”

 

Stingray 220DR from Lakeland Boating
(2006/06)

“When I consider using the 220DR in our neck of the woods, I immediately think of the smaller lakes and what a great day boat this would be.”
