So I could use some input on my first wakeboat. After riding a bunch of different wakes over the years I've come to conclusion that I want either a VLX or Xstar wake. I found these two boats and was wondering what the fuel consumption is like?
Honestly I could probably afford a newer 40k xstar but I don't think i could afford riding behind it much just because it burns through so much gas. Another question, would it be worth it to spend the extra coin and get a newer vride or x1 35k+?
I'm pretty set on getting one of these two wakes, but haven't considered any other factors in terms of boat layout, interior space/storage/seating, maintenance costs, etc. All inputs would be appreciated
and maybe bring up some other things that I haven't considered in owning my first boat. I ride 2-4 times a week and would really use the boat a ton in both salt and fresh water all year round.
Below are the two boats I'm considering, either these exact ones or ones very similar.
Thanks in advance!,
