Hi guys! I am new to this website. I am new to the tow boats, but I am looking to purchase in the next few monthes and I have heard nothing but good things about the Sanger! Please let me know your opinions on this boat and what I can expect. Thank you for your info.

If you are new to tow boats. I would say DEMO every boat that you can before making a decision.

rio_sanger 08-27-2007 3:58 PM

550 hrs. on our V-210, not one problem. Solid boats with a great reputation that goes back to the mid '50s

blastmaster 08-27-2007 5:12 PM

On my 3rd Sanger and will likely sell to upgrade to V230 next year.

hatepain 08-27-2007 5:53 PM

No, get the V237 next year so we can get some feedback not only that but it looks sick. <BR> <BR>Scott, do a search and you'll see the love. I have one and just love it. I have an all new respect after she got me home through 8 miles of the worst water I have ever been on. Calling it chop wouldn't come close to covering it. I felt like I was in the perfect storm but she got me the wife and kids home. I was literally sore the next day from the ride back!

I have the v210 which has been a good boat but any more than 6 people you find it a little congested. I may move up to the v230 or v237 in a few years. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by sangerlover on August 27, 2007)

Scott, let me add this... <BR>I've only known about and followed Wakeworld for a few months now, but I have observed this: <BR> <BR> A constant MC vs BU fight going on, and they both seem to bash CC. <BR> <BR>Tige', SC, MB, and Centurion also get their share of badmouthing from other brand owners. <BR> <BR> But Sanger seems to never get any negative feedback, (except, of course, when Billy's havin' fun with the fact that Sanger still proudly uses wood stringers <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>... <BR> I often read "you can't go wrong with a Sanger" well, I think you can't go wrong with any of the boats above... go out and demo, pick the one YOU like and enjoy! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/wink.gif" border=0>

I think it is the most boat for the money. If You are looking for an all around great craft go the v215 route. Or what ever you can afford. My v215 is my first tow boat and my budget was 40k they went well together

Sanger was first on my list, but the local dealer really had a bad reputation so I ended up with a CC and an awesome dealer. Sanger has since switched dealers locally. Hell, I drove from Phoenix all the way to Madera, CA just for a test drive. They have a great rep in Scott Pellaton too, hell I don't even have a Sanger and he answers my emails!

Scott, <BR>I test drove many brands and kept coming back to Sanger.. <BR>Ended up with an 07' V-215 that we really love. <BR>Not only does the boat perform like nothing else but it fit our budget as well. Everywhere we go people are always commenting on the boat. I even have two very stubborn friends who admitted that Our sanger rides much better than their own boats that they spent much more money on. <BR>Have a look for yourself. <BR><a href="http://www.wakesiderides.com/rides/index.php?page=out&amp;id=2743" target="_blank">http://www.wakesiderides.com/rides/index.php?page=out&amp;id=2743</a>

Scott^^^^ can you post some pictures of your stereo set up? I'm really just interested in the interior stuff not including the sub but I'd take a look at any of them. I have some extra polk db650's I have been trying to come up with a plan on and your set up may help. So if it's not to much trouble...

jdub 08-30-2007 9:11 PM

I researched, I read, I looked, I bought my 05' V230 and have loved every trip! Only thing I've replaced was a ballast pump. I think it's a small price to pay after reading these posts over the years of all the boat woes of others.

sbilyeu 08-31-2007 10:33 AM

I own an 06 V215. It's a great boat all around. I also have friends with much more expensive boats. They always comment on the great ride. It kicks a$$ in rough water and IMO has a good wake with the stock triple ballast. Throw even more weight in and watch out! I second that Scott Pelleton is a great rep and always has taken care of business. I have even delt with the factory and those guys are great too! If you already have your eyes on a Sanger, you won't be disappointed.

brownman 09-04-2007 11:36 PM

I'm relatively new here, but I have noticed a few things. Most of the folks that know what they're talking about always tell you to demo everything and not try to push the brand they own. That's solid advice. <BR> <BR>Others are loyal to their brand and theirs is the best. Personally, I recently upgraded from a runabout to a wakeboard boat. I went strictly for value and quality. I looked at Moomba's, Centurions, tige's and Sanger. Demoed everything except the Moomba, and landed on an 06 Sanger V215. Dollar for dollar the best boat for me. <BR> <BR>We love the wake, the company's customer service is great. We're really pleased with it and always get compliments on our boat at the dock. I would suggest you demo everything, but for me i don't see a $15-$20k difference in the wake/quality.

kickflip_mj 09-05-2007 12:54 AM

not a wake boat but my old boat was a 1996 sanger 20dlx i have about 850 hours on it and agout 600 of those i ran 2500 lbs of weight in it and it seemed to hold up well. well made boat and i anly hade to fix the velvet drive twice(alot of weight in it) but a cheap fix.

sharkyvonmarks 09-05-2007 10:39 AM

"SANGER" hands down the best boat for the buck you can't go wrong Scott Pellaton is one of a kind and has sooo much passion for his product.
