I'm helping my friend sell his beautiful baby only because times are tight and he needs cash more than fun times right now. He paid $48,000 for this boat, the NADA guide prices it Average Retail as $40,125 and he’s offering for less than Low Retail. $35,000! This boat is in immaculate running condition. Named one of Wakeboarding Magazines “World’s Best Wakeboarding Boats 2005”, this boat is going to amaze you, his loss is your gain. Color scheme is yellow, gray, and white. Bimini top, rain cover, rear-view mirror, two wakeboard racks, depth finder, and PerfectPass included. Clarion stereo has various auxiliary inputs for your iPods, iPhones, HTC phones, Samsung phones, MP3 players and more. Dual (tandem) axle trailer tires are in moderate condition. The boat vinyl has some signs of wear. For the description I am going to defer to an article posted in WaterSki Magazine which was a reprint from the Boat Buyers Guide 2005. Unfortunately the "exclusive video" listed in the article is no longer available but for you, we shot some video of the boat in action on July 15, 2012 at Lake Pleasant AZ in Two Cow Cove.

The hard-core style of the B-52 matches the hard-core wakeboarding performance. Two ballast tanks are built into the hull, ready for an easy-filling, balanced 1,600 pounds of water weight. The collapsible tower folds down flush with the sturdy windshield. The rubber-covered fiberglass swim platform offers traction and durability. Tribal graphics are in the upholstery and the gelcoat.

When you’re the best wakeboarder on the lake, you want to announce your presence. The B-52 V lets you do that, screaming across the water with its wild in-the-gelcoat graphics, stylish collapsible tower, flashes of billet aluminum accents, and full-on four-speaker stereo system with amps and subwoofer. Behind it, you’ll be soaring on pro-level wakes and waving to awed onlookers. The B-52 is an awesome sight, whether you’re outside of it or riding in it. You get everything you’d expect in a V-drive – like and open bow, wraparound lounge and sun deck – just kicker up a notch. The upholstery and carpeting are remarkably thick, the fit and finish are clean and the storage is abundant, including an in-floor cooler in the ultra-wide bow walkway. The rear compartments are surprisingly big, too, because the ballast tanks are built into the hull with a low profile underneath the floor from the transom to amidships.
The B-52 shares the same hull as the more family oriented 220 V, though the MB has filled in the spray pockets for a smoother wakeboarding wake. The two big built-in ballast tanks hidden under the deck add a total of 1,600 pounds of water weight with the flip of a switch, a process easily monitored with the ballast gauges. Loaded down to its full factory potential without the need for added fat sacks or a ton of passengers, the B-52 generates very good-size wakes that satisfy advanced riders. There’s a clearly defined lip that lets you see exactly where you’re going to get your pop for grabby, floaty moves as well as a range of spins. It’s performance that delivers on the hype of those edgy wakeboard graphics.
