I'm looking at an '02 Moomba Outback and a '00 Supra Launch. Both have ballast. The Supra has 325 hrs. w/ 310 HP and the Outback has 290 hrs. and an upgraded 320 HP EFI engine. Both priced about the same. Which boat do you think makes more sense?

If you are just looking to wakeboard, go for the Launch-much better wakeboarding wake. Outback is a nice but but it is mainly for slalom.

i have an outback and love it. No problems in 5 years. BUT it is not a wakeboard boat. If I had a choice, I'd get the Supra, no question. Both made by Skiers Choice. But Moomba is their price point boats. If you want to get better at wakeboarding, get the Supra. If you like skiing, and don't mind lower quality interior, get the Moomba. Hopes this helps!

Launch is considered by many to have the best wake of all direct drives

If I were in your shoes I would go with the launch. Like said before it has a great wake for a DD. I have an 03 outback and it has a pretty good wake when weighted with 2000#s, But with that much weight in the supra it would be a big wake.

I talked to the guy with the Supra again. He said it only has 205 hrs. on it and he would probably sell it for $21,000. Does this seem like a reasonable deal?

Average retail on a 2000 is $23,290 according to NADA

then i would say $21000 is a good price if it's in good shape
