I like it. What do you guys think of those Skylon in boat speakers? Last time I heard them they sounded pretty good but that was a couple years ago.

Top shelf! Great combo, MB, OIB and Acme. How could you go wrong?

Boat looks SICK! Curios why didnt you go with the hybrid on the tower? I have listned to both set ups (yours and the hybrid) the hybrid is way nicer and can still be herd by the rider Clear as day.

That is the hybrid set up. 2 x S7HD's and 4 x SMT65's from Samson

This year Ian wanted to go for a much different look than last year and keep it simple.

Ian sent us 6 Samson tower speakers and a Harpoon amp to install. We kept the rest of the stereo system as it would be off the showroom floor from MB.

A huge change of attitude for the exterior came from powder coating the tower and tint. We took the original silver tower off and had it powder coated black with blue accents to match the hull of the boat. The glass was removed from the frame and tinted 20%.

LED accent lighting was installed to all of the cup holders, interior speakers and tower speakers.

I want to thank Ian at for giving us the opportunity to work on another one of his boats. Seeing our work from Sacramento make it way out to the Mid West is a great feeling. Hopefully Ian will get us some on the water pics!

Dang, that thing is awesome! Great color scheme! I loved the old MB, but this one takes the cake. Congrats on a great summer ahead!!

Looks great and I'm sure sounds great too... but those trailer tires look tiny with that boat. Must be a super deep V.

Can't wait to see this thing on the water...although I think it's safe to say I'll hear it before I'll see it, given the tower setup!

Is that blue flake? I may be interested when you are ready to sell.
Old    Ian Brown (wakereviews)      Join Date: Sep 2006       05-06-2011, 7:36 AM Reply   
unfortunately they sprayed the boat before I had a chance to switch it to the metallic, so it is not flake.

That is a great looking boat, I love the accent color on the tower, sweet attention to detail!
Old    Ty (wakeandsnow27)      Join Date: Jun 2004       05-06-2011, 9:07 AM Reply the colors and the light tint almost appears grey and blends right in with the gel coat. Well done.

I find it interesting that MB went with the X theme. I associate X with Mastercraft. I know a couple others have models with an X (vlx, xlv), but it's still weird to me that a manufacturer would go this route. They pull off the looks with ease, it's just a weird association "problem" I have.

Looks awesome, could very well be my next boat. Look forward to see what they do with this model in the next year or two.

That thing looks really good on the water. Not saying it doesn't look good off of the water, just looks amazing on the water. You can thank me later for saving your speakers while it was in Portland

Not only does Ian's boat look great on the water it puts out a great wake. I rode with Ian saturday and was very impressed with the wake. Props to MB for designing a great boat.

Gotcha. It's going to be hard to top this one, so can't wait to see what you come up with next season!
