The Valero, introduced in 1984, shares the same lower half as the V-King (V-bottom or YT) butHarris5.jpg (100853 bytes) the upper half design is a smaller version of the Vegas. Unlike the V-King, the deck is flat and not concave, the windshield has straight lines, and the interior is a little more roomy.

The Valero YT Bowrider and Vasseret YT were the same; the boat was called the former from late 1986 to late 1988 and it was called the Vasseret from '89 on. The V-bottom bowrider version was introduced in 1990 (as a Vasseret).
