|my buddy found a 96 maxum 210ss v-drive with 315hp scorpion,monster tower, speaker cans, tandem trailer. i understand they only made these boats for couple years. he only plansa on using 30 hours a season and is not real hardcore. has anyone road behind, had good or bad experience with. are they reliable or are they very cheaply made. he want v-drive but can't afford more than 14,000 us and this but is priced around ther |
|never heard of it...didnt know Maxum made any inboard boats, is it a I/O??|
|Maxum made V and D drives for a year or two in the mid/late 90's.|
|I worked at Newport Boats in Corona (before they traded their Maxum and Baja lines for Sea Ray). One of them v-drives came through but I couldn't get them to take me for a pull. Don't remember too much about it, but maybe since it was super low production, the attention to detail was better than normal? No idea about the wake. |
Yes, Maxum was a 'luxury' POS (like Bayslammer, Sea Ray and most/all other production boats.) Nothing against them, their just not built like customs or towboats.
|They sold the moulds to Lewis Boats Australia, they sell it now as the "CHALLENGER" . Its a good design and leaves a big wake and can take plenty of weight.|
