i saw an ad for a Yamaha AR210 wakeboarding addition boat...it has a tower, board racks, extended swim platform, ect.
Does anyone have one or know anything about them??

It's a twin-engine jet boat. Nice boat, just not a nice boat for wakeboarding.

i agree, not too bad boat at all, a guy on my river wakeboards off of one. It doesn't look like too much fun, first of all, jet pumps turbulate the water behind the boat horribly, and just don't get the pulling power of an inboard that is hooked into undisturbed water. Also, from trying to slalom ski behind a jet boat, i can tell you that they definitely get pulled around alot and do not track straight at all. This isn't as huge an issue for wakeboarding because there isn't as much lateral pull and even if there is it doesn't effect jumping that much, but it makes it one hell of a pain in the ass to drive.
