Rookie Looking for a boat advice please, Supreme?
 
I'm looking at spending 20,000 on a used boat preferably with a v-drive, What would you guys recommend? I've found a local 2002 sky supreme sp 220, Can't find much on it as far as information, Any advice?

Supreme is made by Fineline (which is centurion)
At a 20k budget for a vdrive you're going to be pretty limited imo. So as long as that boat is in good shape and has fairly low hours , and you like it, I don't see why not.

With that budget you should be able to find a Nautique Super Sport, Mastercraft 205v, Malibu Sunsetter VLX. Just have patience

Thanks, Another question is a good surf boat a good wakeboard boat? And any preference with the boats you listed, pros/cons

2002-2003 Sanger V210 is right around that price range as well.

Slightly off topic: Not sure if I remember right, but wasn't Supreme acquired by Fineline Industries (Centurion) in December 2012... therefore any boat prior to that date was produced independently when Supreme was an independent, standalone company.

Not sure where you are from but drive a few boats if you can. There are big differences.

I retract my statement. I seem to have found my answer; "From 1994 until 2009, Fineline Industries manufactured Supreme alongside its Centurion brand in its Merced, California factory." So it looks like there was a 3 years absence for Supreme and now back to being produced from the same factory as Centurion.

I just sold a 2003 V220SP. We owned it 5 years and it was a great boat. A 400 lb sac fly high sac will fit in each locker on top of the factory tanks. With a 400 lb in the center and a few people in the boat it put out a nice wave. Nothing like the newer boats but still very rideable for wake and surf. With the age expect to replace the starter, steering cable, along with the impellers for the ballast pumps and motor if they have not been done.
