polarbill 05-18-2012 10:56 AM

Dude, what a tease. We need more pics. Right now!!!!

NIce Gel scheme!

Now be a good friend and buy him some nice guide pole covers.

davenk 05-18-2012 11:03 AM

For that kind of money, I can't believe it did not come with guide pole covers? Nice btw, would like to see more pics.

diamonddad 05-18-2012 11:28 AM

Beautiful boat!!! Next, please post some performance pics! Also, let us know how you like the tower/racks/bimini? Does the rope clear the racks when you turnaround tight to pick up the rider?

slipknot 05-18-2012 11:30 AM

more to come

SkySki 05-18-2012 11:36 AM

Very nice - there are a few more F24's on MB's facebook page. Nice to see some rolling out.

sippi 05-18-2012 11:38 AM

that thing is fine!

downfortheride 05-18-2012 11:49 AM

O hell yes! I love my F21 Wake, I can't wait to get behind the F24 someday! Congrats to your homi.

polarbill 05-18-2012 11:49 AM

Be interesting to hear what type of price range a typically equipped one of those is. ~70k? ~75k? What is the total ballast amount? I would love to have that boat with a 750 plumbed into each rear compartment and a 500-750 pound integrated bow sack plumbed in the front. Nasty.

bushtree 05-18-2012 11:52 AM

Nice! I was just looking at this boat on MB's Facebook page an hour ago. color scheme is sick, just hope your not in a hot part of the country. Couldn't do it down here in the AZ sun.

I'm glued to MB's Facebook page waiting to see photos of my new boat! It is supposed to be delivered any day now.

diamonddad 05-18-2012 12:01 PM

I like the new classy graphic but I think I would prefer it if the top swoop did not end abruptly.

chriscno 05-18-2012 5:19 PM

Love the boat and that color scheme.

Houstonshark 05-18-2012 7:46 PM

Are those Pro80's and Pro60's? I can't really tell from my phone.

ixfe 05-18-2012 10:08 PM

That boat looks amazing. I'd take this before those other new big boats and all their hype. And not because of money either, although getting it for 1/2 price is a nice plus.

I'm told these come standard with the 6L motor and priced right at $75k.

My guess is the WetSounds pictured are Pro 60's and MB8's. Not my favorite setup for wakeboarding, but okay for surfing.

This is MB's best looking gel scheme, IMHO. I liked the X pattern, but after seeing literally hundreds of them here and on FB, I'm starting to think its "played out.".

ilikebeaverandboats 05-18-2012 10:58 PM

SWEET! Whats with the chunk of aluminum on the front of the pickle? At first, I thought it looked killer, but looking at how it ends on the tips of the pickles.....it looks like it just got slapped on there at the end. Cool idea, but clean that baby up a bit!

moon 05-19-2012 12:26 AM

Your buddy did good!!! Love the orange, black and charcoal metal flake (very sick color scheme). Can't wait to see one of these in person.

diamonddad 05-19-2012 12:53 AM

Is it that picture above or does the beak of that boat look excessive?

jperkinsttu 05-19-2012 8:07 PM

Did your buddy ever consider Tige? Haha I kid, I kid. That color scheme looks pretty sweet. How much factory ballast are they set up with?

wakecumberland 05-19-2012 8:33 PM

I would have never thought of that color scheme....but man it works!!! Love it!

fullspeed 05-20-2012 9:27 AM

Boat looks sick, not a fan of the tower. I wonder if there is options on different tower set ups? I want to see the wake and how the boat sits on the water while at wakeboarding speeds. If it is bow high or if the boat sits more level.

moto817 05-21-2012 1:54 AM

To jperkins they come with 2400 lbs of gravity fill ballast.

monroeyd 05-21-2012 3:31 PM

How is gassing up the boat with the cap in the back? Seems inconvenient. For anyone who has had an MB, is it a non issue?

SkySki 05-21-2012 3:42 PM

MD - Its a non issue. I actually like it in the middle. I can pull up to either side of the pumps and still easily reach.

brazosfreak05 05-22-2012 2:23 PM

what was the wake like?

501s 05-22-2012 5:52 PM

I was very close to ordering an F24 and if I did, I would have wanted it to look similar to this one. That's a nice boat right there.

slipknot 06-03-2012 10:46 AM

This boat is now for sale. Nothing is wrong with it. Please inquire with Mike Cardoni at California Skier in Lake Elsinore, CA Shipping is possible.

9645glazier 06-03-2012 12:00 PM

Why is the boat suddenly for sale? Or did your buddy not actually buy it?

Cal Skier!! I saw this exact boat last month. We had to chase them out of the channel during our contest because they came in to our line AND sent rollers all the way down the course. Cal Skier owns the rights to the channel but also knew that we had a comp that day.

Can someone please post up stock wake pics of this thing? I swear it's like pulling teeth for some of these boat companies.... MB, Tige, Centurion, Moomba.... How long has the Z3 been out there by WW'ers and we get NO pictures. How long has the Mojo 2.5 been out.... again, no pictures. Same with the F24, no pictures and the new Centurions. For all their problems with the new xstar, at least we got wake video fairly early, same with the G25 and Bu MXZ. Maybe thats why they are still the "big 3" ???

sorry, that go out of hand. Sweet looking boat on the water, powder coat that tower black and tint the windows = money.

vkkovach 06-03-2012 3:11 PM

I looked at this boat at California Skier yesterday. The windshield has already been tinted ,this boat is WAY more impressive in person!!!!!

slipknot 06-04-2012 8:29 AM

Johnny "AXIS" Defacto you my friend are simply full of crap!

"We" idled all the way from lake to the turn around dock, therefore we could not send rollers all the way down the course. Now why would I drive up to a comp and send rollers all the way down the course? Really dude, get real! And another thing you would not chase me anywhere. I would have heard it from the "Judge", and the "Photographer" who were in the boat towing, (who are both good friends of mine).

On another note you cannot handle pics of this wake much less ride it. I would have sunk that pile of a VLX you were in if I sent rollers all the way down the course anyway. Flame on Haters. Hate-it.com

9645glazier 06-04-2012 8:32 AM

^Obviously you and your buddy couldn't handle it either since it's on the market now "coolguy."

slipknot 06-04-2012 8:34 AM

yes you are correct Ryan:eek::eek::eek: Momma dont like the black so there is already another one on order, for fun.

9645glazier 06-04-2012 8:36 AM

Hey, I'm just here to point out the obvious.

But for real, why is it on the market? What didn't your friend like about it, I'm intrigued.

wakecumberland 06-04-2012 8:39 AM

SO will he do the same colors and just replace the balck with white? I think that would look pretty clean too!

slipknot 06-04-2012 8:44 AM

Possibly White, Blue and Metal Flake Silver, where we ride it is usually 110.. Are there any other Harley riders here? This thing would match up good with a F250 Harley edition.

$75K and its yours

v8truckin 06-04-2012 10:55 AM

Nice! Like the color.

wakereviews 06-04-2012 11:28 AM

wow, that is unreal. I'm guessing he's going to have to wait a while till he gets the new one.

Wow. First, I was not in the vlx that had to go stop you, I was driving the A20 with your "judge" and "photographer" friends. Second, the VLX had to jet out to the dock to stop the boat from coming into the course, and by the position of the F24 on the end of the course when I had to TURN AROUND EARLY, you were in the course. Third, there were rollers (small, maybe from the F24 coming to a stop, or start up rollers, not sure because I was all the way at the beginning of the course and could not see if you were idling or at speed), but we had to sit and wait for 10 minutes as the vlx went out to you guys to make sure you weren't coming all the way in and to let the water flatten a bit. Fourth, I could handle pics of the wake just fine and would love to ride it. It's just interesting that we here at WW can't seem to get pictures or video of the wakes of these new wake machines that have been out for a while now.... after all, the "wake" is the single most important thing to a lot of us. Fifth, that VLX is sick, handles great, looks amazing, very plush, easy to use, handles excellent and has a proven wake that is one of the best.... the F24, however, is unproven with a wake that has so far been unseen. Sixth, the guys at Paradise Watersports have been great supporting our club, giving us a 2012 Axis and Malibu at every event, and we appreciate whatever they give us, even if you don't like it. seventh, you should come to this months comp, june 23rd, at the channel, 8am. It won't be pulled by MB, but you will have fun anyways.

ScottR 06-04-2012 12:25 PM

Here come a "whose is bigger thread" .....Popcorn ready!

slipknot 06-04-2012 1:03 PM

no one can be bigger than Rupperts Axis with 5000 lbs that wont plane until 1/4 mile goes by...you need a new prop by the way

Thanks for the lecture on how VLX perform, I have had two:D

ever hear of youtube? WW here is your wake since you all have been looking for it and cant seem to find it anywhere according to Ruppert

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DBPQZ2YILkw

here's your wake D factor

dont talk shiz and say I sent rollers, thats a bold face lie and you know it, no harm guy, no foul

And if you actually think I was going to drive down the course you must be absolutely crazy

flame on and enjoy some fireworks:banghead:

See you at the next tourney as long as its not pulled by an AXIS.

If you are still saying the Axis wake is better than MB I need some of what you are smoking kid.:rolleyes:

johnny_defacto 06-04-2012 1:26 PM

lol. you are funny. This is not even about my boat, but since you seem to want to talk about me and my boat... I don't have 5k, my little 335 with the cinco prop would not get that on plane if I had more than just a driver, and THAT would take a 1/4 mile. Shoot, I had about 4800 with 4 adults and 2 kids and it did manage to get on plane, but that's because I had a really really great rider and experienced driver that was able to make that happen, I could not have. And I am very happy with my prop.

You are very welcome for the VLX performance information.

I will go check out the youtube link, thanks.

Not a lie, it was my perspective. As i said, I was at the beginning of the course and could barely see the all black boat 1/2 mile down course, I do know there were rollers that we encountered, no big deal. The only bummer was the delay in the comp.

Crazy, no. I just know that it appeared a boat was coming onto course, many people directed the vlx to go stop it, and we had to wait. Then we had to turn around early.

Bummer that you won't come because of the tow boat. I too, if given the choice, would rather have been idling down a lake in an F24 than riding behind a loaded up vlx, good call.

And yes, I think the Axis wake is better than the 21' and 23' MB's. I will say it everytime someone asks. It is not fact, just my opinion. And I don't smoke anything, just fire sometimes, and I am not a kid.

slipknot 06-04-2012 1:33 PM

ROFLMAO thanks for the tips and enjoy

buzzardmountainz 06-13-2012 10:22 AM

Yeah...I thought the F24 was in the $75K range with the 409. Pretty far away from $102K.

polarbill 06-13-2012 10:31 AM

I wouldn't be surprised if that is the actual MSRP. From MB's site the F23 had a base MSRP of 75k and that didn't include options, trailer or freight and prep. I think that one came standard with the 409 but could be wrong. I would not at all be surprised is the F24 had a base MSRP of 80k or so without options, trailer, freight and prep. The F24 also says the base engine is a 343. So add 5-7k for the trailer, 3-5k for the wetsounds tower setup, 7-8k for the 409, 500 for upgraded gelcoat, 500 for underwater LED's, 2000 for freight and prep and you are at 100K or so. If the boat does come standard with the 409 I bet the base MSRP is in the 85-90k.

Again, that is just MSRP. You know that made up number that nobody actually pays.

slipknot 06-13-2012 10:41 AM

thats the MSRP, some people just don't have a clue about buying boats. If you pay anywhere close to MSRP you are not doing well. 15-20% off MSRP is a good deal for those of you who are unedumacated and still need to learn alot. The boat will be sold very shortly, people calling left and right.
