Ok i don't want to start a boat bashing thread. I love looking at all the great looking boats out there but lately there is one make that I feel is the best looking boat on the market today. Obviously it is only my oppinion but I have come to the conclusion that the ZR4 by Tige is the baddest cat out there right now. What boats do you guys like. In other words..if money were not an issue...what wakeboat would you purchase?Upload

CC = classy classic look

new age type look = mb tomcat - its rz4/x-whatever but just a little better

Been eyeing this boat in the for-sale section.. Besides a few jet and offshore boats this is probablly the sexiest boat ever made, I wouldnt change a thing...

I'll agree, Coop. That was an awesome year for MC graphics! The new ones look better without, IMO.
The Tomcat is my choice for bling and wow factor but a sacked out Sanger 210 looks so sweet.

while I own a nautique, I still think the xstars look the best. Just wish the interior was a bit more roomy

I have always loved the look of a X-Star because they just look like a hot rod on the water.

X-Star/X-2 exterior and VLX interior

Actually, more specifically the profile and front 3/4 views of the Mastercrafts are great (as seen above). I actually like the rears of the Malibus better because I think the vent areas look cool. I vastly prefer the interior of Malibus also.

Isn't it funny how we all have different tastes? My top choices would be Tige RZ4 then the Malibu LSV 23 or 24 then Mastercraft X star Although i know there are some awesome looking boats out there these are the three I think just say holy Moly when you look at them.

see, my favorite interior is nautique. specifically the 236/230, which is a major reason why I bought one. I love having 6 people facing backwards stretched out at the same time.

I didn't know Malibu's new dash looked like that. Impressive but I'm not sure whether to page KIT or grab 3rd.
Old     (ttrigo)      Join Date: Dec 2004       12-05-2008, 2:39 PM Reply   
I like, in no particular order:
SAN - 01-04 with the FCT. classic look.
VLX - The Ghost! if only the wakesetter logo on the side could have been done in "ghost" graphics. not big on the "transformer" looking thing.
Coops V215 is perfect looking. especially that picture he has on his profile.

I prefer plain, white boats. not big on big graphics at all. a simple "AIR" or wakesetter logo is fine for me. even stripped down to nothing looks good to me.

am I the only one that does not like the look of the X Stars? I dug the older ones, like late 90's early 00's. guess I am not a fan of the pickle's.

Man all the pro riders and no one judging boats by the most important thing of all.


23 LSV 4K
Naughty 230 full of weight.

Wake is most important thing by far.

People or tige (owners) that purchase the tige boats with family and dont board behind them.

Save your money and get a glastron or something lol. no hateing just my opinion.

really like the classic styling of the black/silver x2 above with small X2 graphics....
I generally prefer a boat that is either real classy like that X2, or something Marty McFlys Supra 24SSV... I also like how WSBoats Dallas paints a lot of towers.. Makes what would normally be a stock looking boat stand out... 20's on the trailer really make a boat stand out on the road...
The Malibu interior above is very nice.. although I would not want to stress about keeping something that nice clean/dry.

Unique is a key to some of the best boats.. like MikeParkers XStars that usually have some custom colors involved.

I guess for me the simple clean line traditional boats look the best like the older cc's and some of the 24v and 24ve tiges from a few years back.When I see the new stuff all I can picture in my head is condensation building up in the million dollar dashboard or a not needed trim piece snagging your towel during wipedown.
As for Danny you shouldn't pass judgment instead ride behind one first so you can offer a honest opinion instead of hearsay from your riding buddies who guess what,havn't rode a tige either.I live a hour from you guys and have a sacked out mothership tige if you would like a pull.

The question is what boat looks good after 2-3 years?
A lot of boats look pretty when there new but after a season or two...yikes. I guy here has 1 year old Malibu and all that unprotected bling looks like shhhheeeeeeaaaaaattt now. A lot of pitting in the aluminum and stuff falling apart.

Well first i didnt read the thread right i missed the best (looking) part. Sorry lol.

Brock i have ridden behind a tige that was sac out and i liked it. i will ride anytime hit me up. or hit me up u come to the city.

Tigemike i agree with u.

I wasnt bashing Tige it just seems thats the boat familys buy and then tube behind. i was just saying save your money thats all.

^^^ I know you weren't bashing Tige, Just bashing their owners. I see plenty of of people in Malibu's CC's and Mastercrafts who cant ride all that good, (i'm not all that good either), cruise around, party at the sandbar, and pull tubes.......who cares, their doing what they enjoy in a boat that they like. I see lost of cruisers that people dont spend the night out on, fishing boats with no poles, big deal.

I see my OP is gone, guess I need to "upgrade" to one of the big 3 so I can post what I want

If deleted due to the use of "D-bag", my apologies to the forum.

Man I guess I can't fugure out why people arent digging the look of the RZ series? Im not bias at all Ive had Pro V's Moomba XLV and an MB V23 and loved them all but that Tige RZ4 is in my oppinion the best looking boat that has ever come off an assembly line.

Mel yes they are incredible to look at, have no idea how they perform but as far as looks Im in love with them. Hey Malibu, yes love the Darth Vader VLX Malibu would be my seoncd choice on looks. If I can get myself into the posiotion to buy another boat beofre summer I am going with the RZ4. Anyone out there having trouble keeping up on your payment? Give me a great deal and lets talk.

i think tige really stepped up when they went to pcm. I think it will help their sales. I knew a guy on his third motor with tige. he had a merc and wanted a cc so he could have the pcm. I think their boats look a lot better than they use to, and if people started buying them, someone will dial in the wake and have something sweet im sure. then maybe they will get more respect. I never really cared for their interior but havent seen a newer one, and i thought their mesh driver seat was ugly. I think they got a lot of potential right now though

^^^^Just and FYI
Haven't used Merc in like 4 model yrs

Lots of people own them, last numders I saw, SC sold more only by combining Moomba and Supra. Most everyone that owns one has the wakeboard and surf wake dieled in, and with less weight then other brands.

The Vision Air seat was an option so you had a choice of a cool looking seat that made your butt sweat, or the ugly mesh seat that allowed your trunks to dry!

pcm,mercruiser,marine power,they all come from the same suppliers and factories.Same computers,same design when it comes to a vortec chevy motor.
Henco de mexico every single chevy motor from the same factory.
5.7,6.0,8.1 small and big there all vortec chevy motors built in the mexico factory.
In fact since the advent of the modern inboard ski boat there have only been three platforms,chevy vortec,ford small and the toyota both of the later not in production anymore.

I love my boat (see profile picture).

There is a guy on here named Paul-Brother-Phat-in-Cincy. He has a 03/04 205v that is really nice.

The other boat that I love was featured on the cover of the Nautique model brochure in either 2002 or 2003. The boat was an all black Super Air Nautique team edition. Does anyone have a picture of that boat?

WOW!!! My next boat has got to have some bling on the trailor. I could look at boats all day long. My dream job would be a boat tester, you know, testing boats and giving your oppinions on the fit and finish the response the wake and everything else that people need to know. Of course it would have to be in a warm place year round and I would have to have a few chicks in the boat to make the surroundsings seem like a real day at the lake. My hours would be 11-3 with weekends off of course.Oh and a perk of taking 2 houseboat trips a year, one at Shasta and the other at Powell.

For my money the 2009 210 Byerly and the 2009 PWT X star are where its at. If you have not been in one of these to see the detail go check 'em out! They are super impressive.
