So the time has come for a friend and I to purchase our first boat. Ive been boating with my family for pretty much my entire life so its not something foreign to me, but this will be my first personal boat purchase. We are looking for a boat that can do it all, wakeboarding, slalom, entertain, etc. Ideally the boat would be a v drive, awesome wakeboard wake, surf wake, open bow, and still be capable of pulling a slalom skier. I grew up skiing behind an I/O so I have to imagine pretty much any inboard is going to have a better slalom wake?
With a price range under 20K we have narrowed our search to CC Super Sports, Sanger V210, Super Airs (price permiting), and Malibu Sunsetter VLX.
Are there any other v drives out there that we are overlooking? Any DD's out there that can compete with the above boats? We have been looking for several weeks now, looked at a lot of boats, done a lot of research (most coming from this forum), and everything we've read keeps coming back to the SS. The biggest problem we are having is a shortage of boats, we are in colorado and can only find a handful of these boats across the country. We are using craigslist/onlyinboards/correctcraftfan/boattrader for our searchs.
Any information you might have for finding one of these boats, or guidance on boats we have overlooked would be greatly appreciated.
