Not too bad, but not in a true wakeboard boat's league. It's hard to maintain wakeboard speeds in an i/o when you weight them down.

You can work with weighting it a bit, and messing with the trim to try to get a good wake that doesn't wash over. The wake might be a bit wider also, making it tougher to go W2W.

Anyway, you'll definitely be able to have fun behind it... It beats the heck out of nothing!

I have rode behind almost every length Rgal makes in a boat, including the Session. I have a 22' foot boat and love it. The ski locker in the middle of the boat is big enough and deep enough to put a good size sac in and then just put three people on the back bench and you are in good shape for a non -wakeboard boat. I love Regals. They are great boats! Great warranty and hardly ever breakdown. If you can, put Perfect Pass on them. Our local dealer puts perfect pass on almost every boat they sell with a tower. You can also adjust the trim of the outdrive to clean the wake up. I'm very jealous. The Regal 2200 is one of my favorite boats. If you have any other questions, let me know.

Very well built, but an I/O is an I/O and not a comp wakeboat. If you want the comfort and ability to go ocean it might be your boat but if your looking to board look at traditional wakeboard boats.

It's alright i guess. Buy some ballast bags and think about getting a tower.
