Is this it?

I like it! I have almost the same boat just an 04 with 94 hours just bought it this winter. I have not been out yet. I believe in 06 they redesigned the hull and the wake is supposed to be great. The BU is a great boat and probably throws a great wake and it is cheaper and you will need the extra money for upgrades. "Trust Me" I think you could get the Moomba for a little less I would offer $27,343.00. I always like to offer an odd number so it throws them off their game. Bottom line either one will be great.

ya thats it . I really like the malibu. I havent seen a moomba inperson so I cant judge how they are , but ive seen many malibu and they seems like there build great. iam not in a rush to get anything just waiting on some money I might be getting so iam just looking around. I was looking into it 3-4 yrs ago but stopped now that I might have the funds were looking back into it

Is the BU on onlyinboards also? I would like to see it. I bet it would be a great boat. You can go over to the Moomba site and ask the guys with more experience what they think about it they are good guys.

What a crappy ad only one pic? Both boats are good but newer is always better. Is there any warranty left on the Moomba? If you are in FL I have seen a lot of good deals from there.
The final determination should be made after test driving.

I am by no means an expert with either boat, but from going to a few boat shows and just sitting in and walking around Moombas, and comparing to other Malibus I see at the shows and a VLX I ride in, the interior of the Malibus just seems to be nicer. Its just all the little differences that I seem to notice, for example the seats in Moombas seem to be a lot lower to the floor. I realize that this is something really small when looking at the whole boat, but when you add up four or five little things like that, it just got me thinking. I also noticed the Moombas seem to have much smaller bows. But this is comparing two really good boats to eachother. Just thought I would give you a heads up because you havent seen a Moomba in person.
