Anyone got a svfara?

chqwakeboarder 11-12-2006 5:34 PM

wow, what were their sales last year and where are their dealers located

jeff359 11-12-2006 6:32 PM

The have, or had a dealer in Disco Bay. Other than that, I don't know. I know in past years, there sales were aways one of the bottom.

They have or had a dealer in Thousand Oaks. Looked at them once just to see and wasnt very impressed.

2 in the first half of 05....They better step it up if they plan on being around long.

I think I read somewhere in this forum that their hull is similar to an old MC.

Yes I own one. See profile. Lemme know if you have any questions about them <BR> <BR>Trash

MB had a few old MC hulls

05mobiuslsv 11-13-2006 12:59 PM

Trash- <BR>how's the wake on those things. I was reading an article in waterskimag.com and they were really impressed with the wake. Got any pictures?

trash 11-13-2006 3:05 PM

I'd have to take a look, but I don't think I have any wake-specific pictures. I also ride behind a MC X-7 so I can compare those two. <BR> <BR>Svfara's wake on the SV609 is very rampy. I find I have to work to get a nice pop off of it. We usually sack it down with 500lbs in the trunk and 250 in the bow area. This curls the wake a bit and makes it a bit steeper. <BR> <BR>The X7 seems to naturally have a curl to the wake, and when sacked down is nicer than my Svfara. That said, I'm not dissing the wake on my boat at all. Some people prefer my wake over the X7. Me, I'd rather have the X7 wake. But, I paid 18000 less than my wife's uncles X7 (both were bought new and both are 2002 model years). <BR> <BR>I have some issues with the build quality, but that may be because mine was one of the first ones off the line. 2002 was the first model year. For newer ones, YMMV. <BR> <BR>Trash

Here are some pics of a 2005 Svfara SV696 I water tested around Kelowna BC. I didn't get to go for a pull as it was getting late. The pics are full factory ballast (+/-1000lbs) with 5 people in the boat at +/-21MPH. The boat wasn't for me for many reasons I wont go into... but the wake looked decent. <BR> <BR>Thats all I know... here are the pics: <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/391715.jpg" alt="Upload"><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/391716.jpg" alt="Upload"><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/391717.jpg" alt="Upload"><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/391718.jpg" alt="Upload">

in waterski mag there is an interesting review of a center-mounted V-drive ski boat they make, check the boat reviews.

swab791 11-25-2006 10:48 AM

One of there hulls is a MC PS 190/195/Sportstar.(1995-2001) They made a plug and started producing boats. That hull w/ the MERCRUSIER actually failed AWSA testing and was to slow. <BR> <BR> They are AWESOME looking boats thats for sure. Just concerned that all there boats are duplicates of others. The SLALOM boat is from Infinity/Rob Shirley the one looks like a BU and the other is from MC. The tower looks like a BU copy as does the interior...good looking but time will tell. Probably very very pricy with the difference in the Canadian vs. the US dollar

faceplanter69 11-26-2006 12:36 PM

TK more expensive with the difference in the cdn vs U.S. dollar? The Canadian dollar is discounted compared to the U.S. dollar. <BR> <BR>I flew up to Kelowna last month with my buddy who was looking to add them into his shop for next year. I'll just say I don't think these boats are for everyone. None of the hulls were purchased from MC or anyone else. I'll end that rumor right now. <BR> <BR>From what I could see these are super put together boats and all of them had very nice rampy wakes. The SV696 is pretty much like identical to the Malibu XTI. With one difference. The SVFARA took the layout and improved everything about the boat compared to the Malibu. I think that's my buddies concern though, he'd never sell another XTI if the SVARA is on the same lot. Their V-drive configuration was a a big disapointment to me though. It has basically the same layout as the 696 but in a V-drive which takes up a lot of cabin space. The wakes behind both the 696 and the V-drive are really top notch. <BR> <BR>The best way to compare the SVFARA to other boats in the same class is this. The SVFARA looks like a European sports car and the American make boats look well like a Ford or GM compared to it. Like I said they're not for everyone however they were really well put together and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one if that's what you were looking for. If you like the Malibu XTI, don't buy one until you look at the 696. 90% chance you'll buy the SVFARA...

In the pictures posted above I don't really see much of a European Sports Car... more like the clown at the local circus got the day off and took his boat out.

wakeeater2003 11-28-2006 2:51 PM

When they tested this boat on tulloch a couple of years ago. The pro rider didn't even want to ride the wake because he thought it was going to be bad. After he went out behind it he said it was one of the best wakes he ever rode behind. Very comparable to super air and x star. So they seem to put out a good wake. later, Mike

poser007 11-28-2006 5:07 PM

I think that is a very fine looking boat...have never been in one but I definetley like the looks

luchog 11-28-2006 6:11 PM

This is a very interesting concept for a performance boat: <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.waterskimag.com/boat_inspector/index.html?manufacture=6&amp;boat=3" target="_blank">http://www.waterskimag.com/boat_inspector/index.html?manufacture=6&amp;boat=3</a>

psudy 11-29-2006 7:18 AM

Why is a MC 230 an interesting concept for a performance boat?
