We are seriously looking at a sunsport. The dealer got us looking at it because of some of the more "family friendly" features. That is what I would consider them. We wakeboard and ski but the boat will be primarily for family time. The steps and cooler are very functional.
When we do have a group that wants to do some serious boarding it has eberything the SSV has.
We drove it a few weeks ago and it is a great ride. I was quite impressed at the application of the WakePlate and how it changes the dive, handling and shapes the wake.
Just my thoughts on what I observed. If everything goes right we will own a sunsport 24 in 3 weeks.
