Looking at a 2002 Malibu Sunsetter 21 or a 2001 Tige 21v Riders. 75% of my time will be spent cruising around the lake with old folks and grandkids. The other 25% will be with the kids and grandkids wakeboarding and skiing. I have a lake house with a boat house. Lake Gaston in North Carolina.
From what I've read, the Tige would do better in the chop cruising and carries more. It weighs more, but I don't know if that is a plus or a minus. Tige has been bashed on this site, and it has a Mercruiser 315hp.
The Malibu has a flat wake with the Diamond hull, so I guess wouldn't be to good for the wakeboarders, but I like the Malibu, mainly since it is the only boat I have ridden in and skied behind and seems to have a good reputation.
Looking at these two also because they are the best for the money I have found in the price range. Want to stick to the major brands only.
