You cant say that they are not one of the best looking boats on the water. Large without being bloated. Kinda second gen Xstar

The colors on them are just a little too loud for me. Plus I think they have that second gen xstar look because they donít put out near the wake of a g23 3rd or 4th gen Star, 24 mxz, etc...

On second thought I actually like the look.... a lot. And second gen xstar wake would be a huge compliment.

The black one is sick looking! Not totally crazy about tower but sure I could get used to it. Would love to see one of these in person

Only twice the price of a G23 or 4th gen XStar......

If Pavati had been able to build and sell this boat at a price point of 120-150k, with good wakes......they probably would be selling fairly well. But $300k+, with mediocre wake performance (based on limited demo reviews), kinda puts it out of the running for most buyers.

Are you serious??? They want $300K for their aluminum tow boat??

How the hell is that company still in business. Has a regular joe ever bought one that anyone knows about? I sure as **** have never seen nor heard of anyone around me having one and there are hundreds of lake around me.
Their price point is preposterous.

AL24 starts at $260k, and the AL26 starts at $285k. That's with the base motors, and no options added....

They do start out fairly loaded I guess.... but ya, they easily hit $300k with an engine upgrade and a few options.

Worst part, is that is factory direct prices, and they will not negotiate down. They are not inflated MSRPs, like you see in the rest of the industry.

They completely missed the price point..........

Is the price increase for a color scheme that does not hurt your eyes so high that they haven't made one yet?

It would be very interesting to see how many sales they are making per year. If I could afford 300K for a sports boat I would be buying a much more luxurious larger vessel such as a Cobalt or something where I can cook and sleep on it.

Since there are no dealers, who services the boat? Are you buying a service plan for a tech to fly in & out to service your Pavati? Or maybe you send your personal full time mechanic to training at the factory? The biggest draw back in my mind is NO ONE outside of forum addicts knows what a Pavati is. What's the point in rocking a 300k boat if the hotties on the shore have no idea you're loaded & they could potentially move up a tax bracket? Makes no sense. To me this piece of crap would just sit in the garage of my yacht while we play with the jet skis, helicopter & do blows off hookers bewbs.

A friend of mine here in Arkansas has one. He owns a diesel shop. Pretty regular guy. He bought it from a dealer here in Arkansas. The boat had quite a few bugs in the beginning. Mostly computer problems. The dealer sold out and they finally flew a tech from WA who straightened it out. No problems since. Iíve only surfed behind it twice. The wave is huge with everything full but not that great to surf. It did better when dropped down to about 75% full on the ballast. With the tanks full you could not start from the swim platform like I do my MXZ. There was a big vortexing hole that tried to suck you and board under. The wakeboard wake was the same. Better with less weight. I will ride behind it more this summer and spend more time trying to dial the wake. The thing is a tank tho. He hit a small cypress tree at night at low speed square on the pickle fork. It shattered the tree and barely scuffed the boat. Hereís a couple of pics of it at my dock last summer.

I have seen one at a dealer. They are a very love/hate design. I personally love them. They are very angular. Almost like a Tron boat haha. I few years ago I tried to contact them about the order process. I expressed I was interested in getting in line for a A26. I was planning on seeing if they would come down on that price at all similar to how a lot of cruisers sell for 40% msrp. Well it never got there because I never heard back from them. Emailed them 3 times. Not a peep back.

I love the look of pavati’s ! Always wanted to see one in person. But 300K !!!? Gees.. I was thinking expensive but not the price of a yatch.
Despite the fact that the wave isn’t even good loll.
Like Jack said, what the thing Buying this boat!? Obviously not for surfing or boarding. Maybe "balling" and hookup but no one even know what the heck is this boat!
Seriously it don’t even look that luxurious.
If I were a boat chick sure my beautiful ass would prefer a sea ray hahahaha.

I like the look but I thought the pricing information in this thread had to be "fake news" so I went and looked it up for myself. Here is a link to pricing from Pavati's own web site. https://www.pavati.com/product-category/boats/

The two boats they show on their site are $221k and $262k. Wow. Those prices are absolutely 100% ridiculous. I think inboard boat pricing in general is a little out of control but Pavati has taken it to a whole new level. If they were a public company, I'd short their stock.

Here is a link to a $306,000 2018 Pavati http://www.boattrader.com/listing/20...dard%20listing


For that money I can get a new G25, new pontoon boat, new tow vehicle, and a lifetime of gas, storage, insurance, maintenance, for all. I'd still have money left over.

That just absurd. GP on those boats is probably 100%. They must be just cranking those things out of their factory......

Totally agreed since surfing is the new thing boat pricing grow up so much and they grow up each years itís crazy.

I remember when I bought my first new Moomba outback V back in 2008 fully loaded for 41K.
I think the dream boat these days was the wakesetter 23 LSV and the top one was barely 65K.
Now itís difficult to have a Nautique 210 for 100k lol .. crazy.
