Thoughts on 99 Wakesetter VLX
Saw a cheap Malibu VLX DD for sale and wanted to know your thoughts.

It's not a VLX if it is a diredt drive. But I have a '97 VLX and is is a wake machine.

If its the one on wakeboarder its way to much cash these days....

vanagonwake 03-09-2010 4:55 PM

That is what i assumed. Can this DD put out a good wake?

vanagonwake 03-09-2010 4:56 PM

It is a bank repo that was a salvage. I think I can get for around 2k or less.

Well my boat is a dd but I like to slalom and barefoot so thats what I wanted, I got the moomba and I got the gravity III system...i know dd boats are more dificult to resell so If its a repo I would offer 16000 for it honestly....that would be a deal but that price is not.......this coming from a guy who just dropped 58000.00 maybe you shouldnt listen to me:D

$2,000 not $20,000..... I have about 2000 lbs of ballast from my current I/O that I rebuilt.

I dont know that boat but My mobius will put out a great wake and has a lil more top end...its no san but a good boat none the less.I got a 750lb sack for surfing,people mostly dont like where the engine is mounted on a direct drive, but hell yes they can throw a wake.

If you can get a boat for 2000.00 dollers really?

dru1974 03-09-2010 5:11 PM

do you have any pics?

vanagonwake 03-09-2010 5:22 PM

It is not in good shape, lets put it that way. I doesn't run and it had front end damage. I can rebuild just about anything on a boat. It has a rebuilt title which is similar to a salvaged car.

dru1974 03-09-2010 6:14 PM

well if your capable and have about 5 k to put in along with some sweat and teers.....its a shame somebody could treat a boat like that.
