I had never seen a Toyota Epic but I read about them on this forum. Last Friday, June 13th, I was driving thru Arkansas/Tennessee and I passed a really sharp looking light blue and white one with a teak swim platform. It looked brand new. So, I was wondering when did Toyota stop making the 22V? Just curious because this boat was perfect.

They are sweet.

Toyota built Epics from 1999-2001. They introduced the '02's and then shut down after 9/11.

The fit and finish of a Toyota rivals many new boats being made today. That's why, if you see one that's been well maintained, it looks brand new as if it was still in production.

I saw one on our lake last summer. It was some kind of special wake edition Epic and it looked sweet. The guy said it had a Lexus engine and ran super strong and smooth. The dude said that the wake is really killer as well.

If I was looking for an older model wakeboat I would try to find one although I expect that they are kind kind of scarce.

They are out there. They go very cheap and are great on gas. See my profile pic.

I have always liked them, that Lexus engine is a solid power plant. The only downside would be buying parts for it, but on the flipside, it seems like they are pretty reliable. I don't guess there was enough money in the market for Toyota to hang around. I have seen several DD's for sale over the years, not too many V-drives though, people must hang on to those.

Buying parts for a Quad Cam v8 a down side? How come? Toyota put that motor into EVERYTHING.
