-   -   Buying 2003 Cal-Air (http://www.wakeworld.com/forum/showthread.php?t=71691)

I found a great deal on a 2003 cal-air for about 32,500.00 with wood package tandon trailer, stereo with 4 speakers, pure vert, boss tower, custom cover, and board racks. It does not have the added checker pattern it is the swoosh pattern. Anyway the reason I am looking at this boat is the price for one, I cant not find new boat for same price other than moomba and I am not to found of them. Second is weight, I have a Mazda B4000 with the 4.0 liter v6, 5 speed and it is rated at 3500 pounds towing. Which I have been towing a 1990 centurion falcon with no problem once so ever. Anyway just wondering what you guys think. I would love the Cal-air V but I dont think I could afford it or tow it. Besides do you guys realize how small the falcon wakes are. I think I will be stoked. I forget <BR>how to post link in window could someone do it for me or tell me what to type after I post in on my ftp. <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR><img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/71692.jpg" alt="picture">

Mike, <BR> <BR>Forgot about towing that boat with your Mazda. I have a 2002 Cal-Air and it weighs with trailer around 3,400 lbs. I have a Ford 150 with a 5.7 and on certain grades, it's working! You'd end up smoking your clutch plus try hard stopping. It will keeping pushing you.

It weighes the same as the Falcon I pull with no troubles. Been doing it for 4 years. Power doesnt seem to be trouble but when my clutch does go out I am going to get a centerforce.

I have that exact boat and pull mine with a Grand Cherokee and it only has the 6cyl in it. It does just fine, i would not worry a bit. NICE BOAT!!! What dealership you buying it from? You can't go wrong with a Calabria...fit and finish is top notch, balast is unbeatable, and looks are astonishing...like i said, NICE BOAT!! <BR> <BR>B <BR> <BR> <BR>(Message edited by hlboatsnboards on June 20, 2003)

Hell no I am not giving out the dealership, lol. Not till I buy it. you guys will steal it from me. Thanks for the reply though. Once I get it I will let you know the dealer so far they have been great.

Mike, <BR> <BR>If that's the case - great! Good luck. You'll like the boat. Love mine. <BR> <BR>C

Thanks, what year is yours. Good size wake?

grantmi1 06-20-2003 3:52 PM

Moomba or Cal-Air. I sure like the cal-air looks better, what is others opinions.

Mike the Cal-Air is a killer boat. I just sold mine and bought a Pro-V.The Cal-Air has more room and storage than most D-drives. Even though it is a small boat just better by design. The ballast is fast and awesome. Drives like a sports car and is good on gas as long as you stay under 28 mph or so. That is a good price for a great, custom, hand built boat. My neighbor has an 02 Moomba Mobius and would trade in a haeart beat for my Cal-Air. No comparison. <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.Wake-Me.com" target="_blank">www.Wake-Me.com</a>

Nice boat at a great price! <BR> <BR>Bring it to Florida some time...we'd like to see a Calabria over here!

Boat frikkin sold, damnit

I have a 2001 and love it. Ditto on what Phaeton said. Great boat, builds a nice wake, handles like a dream... <BR> <BR>I really like the way the Boss towers look on the Cal-Airs. I have the older Met-Craft tower, it came with the boat.

Mike...check your email. <BR> <BR>

I have found another good deal on a Cal-Air

jeffr 06-24-2003 9:02 AM

Mike, Did you find another boat from the same place? What color are you looking at now? Shouldn’t post pics of the showroom if you are trying to keep the ‘deal’ a secret. Between your city and the brand of boat…. Not hard to figure out what dealer you are talking about. My friend gets all his work done there…. Seems like a good shop to me. SHHHH I won’t tell… <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/biggrin.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>I have ridden behind the Cal Air. Trav’s , Sean’s, and Phil’s. I agree that it’s a nice boat. I like the look of the new towers much better too. You can get a nice wake with some good vert to it with a bit of weight. You will probably end up running more weight than the stock ballast offers. If towing is an issue I assume you will use water weight and not lead. The boat also drives great compared to my V Drive! The locker behind the rear seat is nice for hiding ballast and also allowing you to keep gear out of the way and even locked up. <BR> <BR>If you are looking for a Direct Drive the Cal Air is a good choice. Hope the new deal works out for you. <BR> <BR>Did you get the financing worked out yet? What rate and term did you get? <BR>

Still looking, damn these are hard to get at a deal.
