New boat suggestions/input
I'm looking for some input on purchasing a new boat, I really want the best boat possible for boarding and surfing. My budget is 18-30k, been looking at sanger v210,and some 230's, avalanches, super air 210's. What do you guys think? Thanks

Two words: Test drive. That being said, I own a Sanger V210 (my first boat purchase after about 3 years of research and looking) and love it. I picked up an '02 for $19k a couple of years ago and could probably sell it today for what I paid for it. If you've been on this board a while you've noticed there is a pretty loyal following for Sanger's on here which was a pretty big influence on the boat brand I ended up buying. I've never ridden let alone sat in one; however, your budget is probably enough to look at the V215 which gets good reviews on this board. As for the other brands I have no experiencce with them. Have fun with your boat search!

So the v210 has a real nice surf and wakeboard wake? What set up do you use? I have found some pretty good prices on v210's. I'm used to riding behind a 03 supra ssv, or a 06 moomba lsv.

I think the avalanche will give you more bang for your buck the avalanche is capable of making a world class surf wave on both sides and makes a decent wakeboard wake but is a little sensitive to weight placement

Why not the V215?

yodd_tost 07-24-2010 11:49 AM

What are the key differences between the v210 and v215? Besides length and 215's are 5-8k more than 210's.

05mobiuslsv 07-24-2010 11:58 AM

I'm no Sanger expert but the 215 doesn't have that weird hump in the rear lockers, it's 6" wider and 1' longer. That equates to a ton of interior room.

Here's a pretty damn good asking price on a nice 215 that looks to be brand new.

Wow that is a good deal, that may be a little hard to convince the wife for that.

Someone else will have to chime in about the surf wake we don't surf behind mine. However, the V210 puts out a great wakeboard wake with a lot of weight in the bow. Do a search on this board and you'll see some photo's of some pretty good dialed in V210 wakes. If you can find a V210 with the Black Scorpion engine it doesn't have the hump on the rear engine hatch that was noted above. If a great surf wake is a must I would definitely look at the V215.

As noted above, Black Scorpion = no hump

Any thoughts on the sanger v230?? Found a couple 03's for 24k or so

I have a 08 V215 and love it!! Great wakeboard wake and awesome surf wake. Great fit and finish. I would hold out for the v215 over the 210 just to avoid the hump in the rear (personal preference). I have heard good things about the v230 for surfing. Can't go wrong with Sanger. I will try to get a surf wake pic for you.

yodd_tost 07-26-2010 12:06 PM

Quick question- what if my budget was more?? 30-50k what would be the recommended boat for wake and surf?

clotus 07-26-2010 12:23 PM

I would still highly suggest Sanger, but like stated previously Sanger has a loyal following by their owners yet are not very well known. Centurion, from reading on this forum, make one of the best surf wakes. This is just what I read, I have only surfed behind my Sanger V215, so it is all hearsay. Your 18-30k range should yield you a very nice lightly used boat or maybe even a new slightly less optioned out boat if you are patient.

If you want to get close to 50k get an Axis A22 with the plug and play.

Anybody got some input on the sanger v230??
