We had a 2004 Sport Bowrider. The boat is a great ski boat and a great first time boat, however, it is very limited on its wake board wake potential. We had 440lbs on each side of the motor and a 500lb sac for the rear seat and still had an limited wake. We never had a problem with the boat and lots of great times. We bought a Centurion agian with no regreats. If you think that you will be on the water a fair amount of time and are intrested in wakeboarding, I would go for a V-Drive. If you are mainly wakeboarding; Spend some time, money, and research now to avoid upgrading to a wakeboard boat next year.
