So here's the thing...I love wakeboarding, but I don't know the first thing about boats. But if I want to actually wakeboard, I need to buy a boat. For my first boat, I need to stay under 10k. I am looking at 2 prospects: 1985 Supra Comp ski boat w/ rebuilt engine and new interior, open bow, and a tower for $9600. Option 2 is a 1991 Ski Brendella open bow w/ about 600 hrs on it for $8000 (no tower). Are either one of these a decent deal? suggestions where I can find a decent boat for under 10k in the NW?

Hey Jeremy if you scroll down about half way down this page find the Good Boat or Bad Boat post and look at my thread there, maybe that will help.

The 1985 Supra is a great ski boat, not the greatest wake for wakeboarding. If your looking to buy a great wakeboard boat, id try to find a old 2001 nautique. The older 2001's make one of the best wakes around, still today, in alot of peoples opinion.

I would love to get a Nautique. I have heard great things, but I can't find the older styles with an open bow... Do you know if they make the 2001 model with an open bow??

About the Supra...Do you know if there were different hull designs in 85? I haven't seen the boat yet, but I had my cousin look at it for me and he said the hull is shaped more like a V drive.

Supra made a TS6M which is the competition ski boat, which is closed bow. They also made a Sunsport which is an open bow. I think they made few other models, you may want to do a search on There are alot of used boats you can find in your area. As far as te 2001, they didnt make them with an open bow.

If open bow is a must, you can look at a late 80's mastercraft tristar as well. Im not too sure what kind of wake they put out, but im sure someone on here will kno.

Thanks for the info. I totally see where you're coming from and, yeah, what's $200/month? I could swing the monthly payment, no probs. But I try my best to live debt free, so far have done pretty good, only owe on the house. A boat is one of those purchases that would have to be a "cash" deal. That's why I need to stay under the 10k if possible. It's hard though... because I've been on my neighbors Centurion Air Warrior and it's just SICK! It's hard to stay practical when I know what I "could" have..., but I need to stay practical for now.
