I'm having a tough time deciding on a boat for this year. I already have a slip in Folsom Lake so it'll be in the water primarily. I have seen some new Air Warriors for 30 with just a tower, no ballast or V-drive. Ultimately I'd really like a V-drive but I can't seem to find anything under 30 worth while. Plus the new with a warranty seems like it might be the way to go. What would you do?

Mike, if my budget was $30K I would buy a used boat, and you should be able to get something nice. you could try to talk this guy down a little
or spend a little and buy this
point is, there are lots of good options in that price range, but you wont' find a good v-drive new for that money.

Without a doubt I would look really hard at this boat. 516932QQrdZ1

Just a disclaimer I do not know this guy at all.

He is a fellow wakeworlder who has been trying to sell his boat for a few months now unfortunately for him its winter. The price of 28k is an amazing deal on a loaded boat that has a proven wake. He has got it on ebay now so I would jump on this one quick. Goodluck with the search.

Dude I'd get the VLX or the Sanger, you'll regret getting a D-drive if you don't have to.

How many hours on that '03 Sanger? Do you think he'd take 26k and deliver it to Folsom? Does it come with factory ballast in addition to the fat sacs?

i wouldn't expect people to deliver a boat to you... and I'd drive whatever you buy before you buy it.

I'm in the same "boat" as you, looking for a v-drive in the $25-30K range. I have seen a few, but you've got to be ready to pull the trigger on a good deal. check out too. Supra, Sanger, Moomba, Calabria, and Tige seem to have good boats near this price range.

...or one with no wake.

Henderwake, the above Sanger is a pretty smokin deal. I don't know how many hours it has on it, but if its less than 200 then thats the ticket right there. A good friend has a 2001 V210 with nearly 600 hours on it, we drive it hard, loaded down all the time & she drives like a champ.

If I had $33k I'd go to the LA Boat Show & buy new V210. Then piece the extras together after that.

I e-mailed Sherman a couple times asking how many hours are on it but couldn't get an answer. It's obvious he takes GREAT care of his boat, so anything under 800 hours is still a really good deal. I was thinking about making an offer, but it scares me that he's not open with the hours.

I would get the Moomba. I was in the same sit a few years ago and got a Moomba. Loved it enough that I put 140 trouble free hrs on it. I just bought a another Moomba this year. Great price...great boat!

I would buy the nicest 2001 ever and keep 17k for gas and prostitutes.
