The ugliest boat ever made: <BR>Svfara Marine Inc. SV696 <BR> <BR> <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65919/279917.jpg" alt=""> <BR> <BR>MSRP $56,600.00 <BR>why would some one buy that for that much when you could get a better and proven wakeboard boat for the same price <BR>

I am not into boat knocking threads, been too many lately.

noti_dad 01-24-2006 11:22 AM

Here we go again......................

innov8 01-24-2006 11:29 AM

Hows the wake? Thats whats important to me.

guido 01-24-2006 11:31 AM

Mooo!! <BR> <BR>I actually think they are really cool boats, although I've never seen one in person. Not sure what they were thinking with that color combo...

olddude 01-24-2006 11:51 AM

Evan, do you really like this one? I agree, UGGGGGLLLLY

rothy 01-24-2006 11:55 AM

It's a direct drive. . . why are we even bothering to talk about it.

innov8 01-24-2006 12:10 PM

They make a v-drive as well I checked them out online. Seem to be a nice boat but a little pricy IMO.

ttrigo 01-24-2006 12:10 PM

I guess only "real" wakeboarders drive V drives, huh??

shavis 01-24-2006 12:11 PM

from what has been said aboutit.... its supossed to throw an amazing wake....but your right the price....it has alot of options none of us would ever use....

proho 01-24-2006 1:26 PM

any boat would look bad with the wrong color scheme.

low_key_wake 01-24-2006 1:28 PM

yeah, but doesent that bad boy have a bar.

wakeeater2003 01-24-2006 1:32 PM

Water ski magazine actually does the boat testing on the lake where I live. They were very impressed with the wake. Actually Nick Wienacker said it was one of the best wakes he had ridden behind. The color scheme is pretty bad though.

wakedoctor 01-24-2006 1:59 PM

That is just the new theft proof option.

marshk344 01-24-2006 5:40 PM

"Mooo!!" <BR> <BR>i agree...looks like they killed a cow for the interior

mendo247 01-24-2006 5:47 PM

"its a direct drive.. why are we even talking about it" <BR> <BR>bah ha ha <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/lol.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>ive been behind some very nice direct drives, many of them better than allot of v-drive wakes ive seen..

eternalshadow 01-24-2006 6:58 PM

There's a svfara on my lake, from what I've seen and (I don't know stats on this years) the short beam I've always been turned off. <BR> <BR>Even with that said though, I'm not going to knock anyones boat, it's their baby and as long as they're happy with it great. That goes as far to include the 15' 90 hp outboards. Whatever it takes to wakeboard, or whatever you have. Make the best of it, ride and share in the sport so many of us love. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by EternalShadow on January 24, 2006)

I actually own an 05 Svfara 696. I do agree this is one UGLY color combo. We have been extremely happy with our boat. It has lots of fun options (yes a bar!)The wake is as big as I will ever nead. I can't imagine paying $ for the color scheme in the picture??!!!!

wakeguru 01-25-2006 8:42 AM

What kind of tweaked out hippy came up with that color scheme? <BR> <BR>Could have been a disgruntled employee or maybe he didn't get the memo. That, or this is just one phase of the master marketing plan...you know what they say - no publicity is bad publicity. Dirty trick...played right into our hands. That guy has upper management written all over him.

jonm 01-25-2006 8:55 AM

Why are people trying to defend this dudes boat? Probably an awesome boat but I've never seen one uglier, ever. He will only sell that god awful boat at a huge loss. I would be embarassed to say I ordered that color scheme. Thanks for sharing the pic.

99_slaunch 01-25-2006 4:53 PM

I looked at some profiles on the above Post's. Some people do not even have a boat listed or a pic in their profile. That boat is not my style. For the people bashing that boat let's see you're boats.

wakedoctor 01-25-2006 5:42 PM

Was mine bashing? I was just meaning good hummor even though I agree with everything that has been said about this boat. If mine Is bashing ill post a picture.

mendo247 01-25-2006 6:35 PM

maybe they wanted to see how crazy or ugly of a boat they could make.. i think its so ugly its really cool! every one has different tastes.. if we all liked the same things this world would be pretty boring.. im not defending anyone.. i guess i just have a positive attitude.. my parents always taught me if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anything at all.. to each his own!!

riverrider 01-25-2006 7:41 PM

here we go again.....what's next who has the worst looking wife? <BR>

jcv 01-25-2006 8:12 PM

i don't have a wife. can i still insult some of yours? i also don't own a football team, but i still think that the owner of the lions is a complete moron

wakeguru 01-26-2006 6:47 AM

Let's go with who has the ugliest board and bindings set-up...

jonm 01-26-2006 4:00 PM

I wish people could just grasp the fact that some people and some things are prettier than others. It is not a bad thing, it's just reality. Given that all other things are equal, people will usually pick the prettier thing. I get that peoples tastes vary, but generally society has similar ideas of what's attractive. Although the boat may be a great performer, the color scheme on this boat is not going to win any trophies at the boat show. <BR> <BR>Same principal applies to the fat, ugly girl with the heart of gold. We probably get along great and she might be dynamite in the sack but I won't be entering her in any beauty contests. I'd probably wax her more often though. <BR> <BR>Now I have a board and binding combo that I admit is ugly. If only I had a digital camera...

noti_dad 01-27-2006 11:08 AM

I agree with Jonathan's statement (beauty is in the eye of the beholder or in this case the owner). BUT having someone post a pic of your boat (wife, girfriend, kids, dog, etc....) and call them ugly in an open forum would probably piss you off. Even if it wasn't their cup of tea. JMHO

greenthumb 01-27-2006 12:18 PM

This is where Wakeworld typically differs from other discussion forums, where I have seen "UGLY ____, post your pics" somewhere else, I usually see SWEET RIDES...POST PICS" here. But I have noticed lately that people are hating on other peoples stuff. Like grandma always used to say, unless you have something good to say, don't say anything at all.

wakedoctor 01-27-2006 12:38 PM

It's the Winter. Someone is going to pop if warm weather doesn't come soon.

jbwaken 01-31-2006 1:00 PM

I actually checked out thsese boats at the Pleasanton boat show and they are nice boats. right out of Canada. To each their own on apprearance. They do run a little high in cost..

socalwakepunk 01-31-2006 8:28 PM

Design looks suspiciously similar to a Malibu XTI
