Has anyone ordered a Pavati?
 
I clicked on the Pavati link, it looks like they have a 21, 22 and 24 foot model. I was curious if anyone has placed an order for one? I like the way they look, but cant figure out why they put a tower on it that appears to be permanently erect and not collapse??? Seems like they would limit there customer base for people who want to store the boat in the garage. There website has very little information on the boat, or any pictures that actually show a finished product.

I know they said in another thread here that the tower is 100% collapsable.

slipknot 07-02-2012 7:24 AM

No. No one has ordered one. Why would they? :o

tyler97217 07-02-2012 7:51 AM

They had one at the Portland Boat Show and the tower does collapse. Not sure at what height.

the wake actually looks pretty sick on their page so that would be a good reason

Rad_Matty_D 07-02-2012 8:22 AM

The boat was at the king of wake tour #4 in WA. They said they sold 2. One to a guy in TX and another to a guy in WA.

Very cool boat idea. And for their first wakeboat--it was nice. LIke any company starting out there's always room to grow. I'd like to see more of these all aluminum boats

Dmac420sj 07-02-2012 9:32 AM

I'm pretty sure aluminum is conductive which to me would be scary in places that have occasional thunder heads or Florida .

jeff_mn 07-02-2012 9:34 AM

Would be great for buyers/boaters who ride in areas with a lot of drift wood, etc.. Central/NorCal comes to mind.. Nice piece of mind that you're not going to take a hunk of gel out.. That won't help your running gear - but gel damage is brutal to deal with.

They are nice looking rigs and their surf and wakeboard wakes both look legit with stock ballast.

Would be sick in salt water. Throw some sacrificial zincs on that bad boy and bond them up. Would last forever. My dad has an all aluminum 75ft purse seine commercial fishing boat. It's really low maintenance and requires no paint. Plus aluminum is softer than fiberglass and steel, so it would bend before breaking if it was ever hit.

hats off to them for stepping outside the box. i think it looks sweet.

bjames 07-03-2012 1:39 PM

Anyone know how much they retail for?

jhartt3 07-03-2012 3:33 PM

Here is some info I got from Chuck at Pavati

21' is no problem and probably wouldn't have the built in chair anyways.
The chair is not legal to ride in while your underway.
We can do the bow without the forks no problem. Working without molds has advantages.
Pricing depends on motor and options but you could get into a 21' for around 65k

Gnargnar 02-20-2013 5:47 PM

So has anyone got one?

fman 02-20-2013 7:59 PM

Here is a video of the boat in action.

boardman74 02-21-2013 4:57 AM

I am curious too. I have yet to see or here about one outside of the website.

Since Im' never going to buy one - I might as well enjoy their promo video being crammed full of racked out blondes..

Wake looks good at speed

jhartt3 02-21-2013 6:42 AM

i talked with him last year... it was right around 60k for a complete 21 ft boat with trailer... it is interesting... and the fact that its aluminum means they can make hull modifications after its sold to you... i bet they would be very open to making some mods for close to at cost if it would help progress their R&D for future buyers builds

Wouldn't everything just be hotter than hell?

Would most likely be a good thing. If lightning was to strike the boat, or around the boat, the electricity would pass through the path of least resistance....... ie. the boat, instead of your body. If the lightning was to strike in that area, and you were in a FG boat, it could very well strike you, and then arc to the water. The human body has less electrical resistance than the air does. It might make the boat an easier target for lightning, however, it would be safer on average.

Aren't like 90% of fishing boats and 100% of john boats made of aluminum? Just becauase this isn't common practice in the wake market doesn't mean it's not commonplace in boat building. Tons of aluminum boats on the waters.

Jeeze. If they would just paint the damn boat black below the rubrail, get rid of all the skulls and barbed wire all over the interior, maybe the boat would be a bit more attractive. I know it's all personal preference, but I don't tend to see a "TAPOUT!!!" stickers next to "Liquid Force" or "Hyperlite" stickers on rear windows. I like the concept, I really do. I just wish the marketing was a bit more classy and less Ed Hardy'ish.

I mean, if you're going to go full Ed Hardy, then where's the stipper pole in the bow? They've got children sitting on the back of the boat while a rider's being towed, why now have "Summer" or "Cinnemon" hanging upside down on the pole in the bow at the same time?

chattwake 02-21-2013 8:56 AM

Now that I think about it, what marketing genius! "You won't mind waiting to fill your surf sacs, just sit back in the transom lap dance chair and let "Peaches" do her thing."

jeff_mn 02-21-2013 9:12 AM

While they are removing the Ed Hardy graphics, they should make the hose flat like the Supreme's and it will be a hit.

tonyv420 02-21-2013 9:30 AM

Tower does colapse, you can opt out of the graphics, and he prob will change any part of the nose you want. Would I buy one? Only if my main body of water was Salt or Brackish. It does put out a good wakeboard wake and Chuck has dialed in the surf wake pretty well. It was used at the polar bear last year, so go to wake9 and get the reviews from everyone who rode behind it, that should help a bit with any purchase decisions someone might have.

LON has already bought two of these boats, all with cash of course!

chattwake 02-21-2013 10:47 AM

Man, I wish someone would internet ninja a "Where are they now" for XStar Ryan, Level 10 Gymnast and LON.

I have been in many aluminum boats and can say I would love a aluminum wakeboat...

+1 That would be great!!!

fman 02-21-2013 1:05 PM

Here is another video of the Pavati 24' boat with Ragboy from Wake9. It shows how the tower folds down along with an interview with the owner of the company.

Reading my mind

chattwake 02-21-2013 2:20 PM

Ok, after watching that last video, I'm pulling more for these guys. Pretty innovative.

fman 02-21-2013 3:06 PM

Its a pretty rare opportunity to get to build a boat directly with the owner of the company, I hope Ragboy has some good results with the surf wake and can get some orders going for Pavati. At first I was taken back with the Aluminum concept, but it starting to look like it might be a great option for people.

The tweaking of the hull is pretty amazing, someone can literally custom design the boat to meet there water sport needs.
