Just spent the day with my Dad 'boat shopping' and hit a couple dealers in southeast MI. We spent most of our time at the Malibu dealer and at the lake demoing the Bu's and all I can say is WOW. I got to drive each of the boats we demoed and just have to say that everything from the new Ride XTi to the 24/7 LSV is top notch. I was surprised at the overall quality and finish even of the 'low end' Bu's. After hitting the Moomba dealer later in the day I came to realize the detail and craftmanship Malibu puts into their boats.
-Just wanted to share my experience
(I know that comparing a Moomba to a Malibu is like comparing a Chevy to a Caddillac)
