Hey brand new to the forums but I did have a question that I was hoping you all could help me answer:

I've been wakeboarding for about a year - behind a team skeeter 225 hp bass boat which I have basically outgrown and am looking for something more designated for wakeboarding. The wake is so far spread that to wake to wake you are basically going completely horizontal with limited height because the wake is pretty bad. When I began looking at and cragslist, I have seen basically two options

1) Older model (1992-2000) wakeboarding boat like Tige, mastercraft, natique, malibu that I would love to have because of the wake they throw but the age of the boats kind of deters me..

2) Getting a 2008-2009 bowrider model such as Chapparal or Crownline which would get what I needed out of it with a dealer warranty and basically 0 hours on the engines..

I know to get a new Tige or mastercraft would be outrageously out of my budget, which is roughly 25,000 but I don't want to sacrifice wake and functionality in the newer bowrider model boats that aren't specifically designed for wakeboarding. Just trying to figure out if going for an older model wakeboarding boat would be worth it -- even though I chance putting it in the shop all the time..

Here's the boat I'm looking at right now -

2009 Crownline 185 SS extreme razor edition

would this I/O bowrider boat give me any wake comparable to that of a inboard V-drive?
