Three months ago, I was shopping for a boat also. I was new to wakeboarding and the only boat I had boarded behind was a Four Winns. My wife and I had a great time and decided we would buy a boat ourselves. My wife was motivated by ammenities and comfort features. I was motivated by the wake and the features on the boat related to wakeboarding. We shopped a little bit and ended up buying a Sanger V215. What a difference!
Our friends Four Winns is a fun "Family Runabout", but it doesn't even compare to a true wakeboarding boat. Before you lay down the cash, think about why you're buying the boat, and most importantly, if possible, try to ride behind it yourself.
