I need help deciding between the two boats. 2005 Supra 21v (new) completely loaded with 325hp mpi, and a left over 2004 MC prostar 205V(about 20 demo hrs.) setup same as x-2 with ballast/ tower/mcx motor/etc... The MC would end up costing me about $3000 once equiped the same. Both have tandem axle trailers. I do like how the supra is a bigger boat inside. In my situation I can not get these boats out on the water. Please help, I need advice on these 2 boats. Are the wakes similar? I have to make my choice very soon to get the great prices that I have been quoted. Any advice will be a great help.

3k for a 205V!, where do I sign??? I of course assume you meant 3K more. <BR> <BR>the MC will be much smaller inside but should handle a little nicer. I am a little partial to the supra just becuase I liked the 21 launch and want to check out a V drive of it. with out the prices I can't speculate what I think is the better deal. <BR> <BR>Have you test drove both?? you should. then get the one you liked better.

No matter what we post here and what you read elsewhere buying boats is really a personal choice. You should spend at least an hour in each boat with your family putting it through it's paces. <BR> <BR>I just bought a boat very different from what I had completely convinced myself after reading and researching everything. The drive/ski/ride was also very different from my perspective then what others had told me. <BR> <BR>Don't rush, it's much better to miss one deal then to buy the wrong boat.

Very different boats, the Supra is a LOT bigger and deeper. Very hard to compare the two for that reason. <BR> <BR>It will ride MUCH better than the 205 in rough water. <BR> <BR>The 205/x2 is famous for a great wake, with enough ballast, but the 21V also kicks out an incredible wake. Probably superior for wake surfing due to it's size. <BR> <BR>Damn, tough choice. Both are damn awesome, all composite construction, lifetime hull warranties, etc. <BR> <BR>I demo'd a 21V earlier this year, and damn it was nice having so much room. The rear compartments are huge, and the seats are so thick, etc. <BR> <BR>You really can't go wrong either way in my opinion, but I'm sure people here will be glad to tell you different, heh.
