Standard Boat Co. Anyone Heard of These Guys Yet?
 
http://standardboats.com/default.aspx

Check this out it looks like they are doing their part to supply you with a wakeboarding boat ( looks like a refurbished old natique with tons of flavor ) for a good cost... Anyone have any info or heard about these?

1) Yes, most people have heard of them, there were leaks on here way before they manufactured, and they have an ad on the frontpage. There are also multiple threads in regards to them, including one that explains they are not a refurbished 2001

2) Get a profile picture, you'll start to get points for your posts

Any word on when the diesel will be out?

Is it just me or does that wake look miniature. Nice shape, but if I have to sacrifice every inch of room inside my boat I would want something a bit larger... just my opinion. That diesel engine looks awesome though. About time...

I've been waiting a long time to see a diesel in a boat... so much torque and potential!

I would like to see that VW actually used in any application. I saw the first ones at the FLL boat show about five years ago. They were just loose engines in a display. Still haven't seen anybody wrap one in fiberglass and splash it. I am curious about their metallurgy and how well it will hold up in sea water. I think it belongs in a bit bigger boat though.
Anyway it's nice to see a utility driven boat company. Good luck guys.

Just wait, next we will see an IPS wakeboat.
