love mine its a huge boat and will hold 16 people , 06 xlv , make sure you get the wakeboard prop, i did not and seems to take time to get on plane with 8 people and 1200 of ballast. bought a new acme prop and will try it in a week.

It's a super nice boat for the money. And can produce a great wake, IMO. If you're looking for a really big wake boat without the really big price tag, it's a great choice...

It doesn't have nearly the bells and whistles that the 21V does, or that luxury feel. The wake is a bit more lippy than the 21V, but still has good mass and firmness.

BTW, I think the POA would have a fit if you showed up in that beast! lol

I have an 04 and absolutely love it. Below is a link to some pics from riding last week and some of them show the wake. I have the gravity games bags and was only running them about half full (1200 lbs) with 3 adults in the boat. Line length is 70 @ 23.2 MPH.

I to own an XLV 2005 and I too really love it. The biggest compliment came this past weekend when my friend test drove the 06 MC x30 and came back very confused as to why paid more. Well the mc does have a little more bling but I was Very Proud of my XLV!!!

Real clean wake, very roomy, lots of storage. This boat performs as well as any big wake boat, at a value price. I own a 2005 XLV

I gotta jump in on this one. I own a 2004 XLV and I love it!! It's roomy, comfy and it performs! The wake is incredible! I ride with quite of few guys who all say they prefer my wake over other boats they either ride behind or own. I used the money I saved on this boat to install a sizeable system in it. So, of all the boats that I ride behind in rotation with mine is the largest, the most comfortable, the biggest wake and the largest system. What else could you ask for?!? It's the boat we all prefer to ride behind and the boat we all prefer to party in!!
