I am looking for a new wakeboard boat in the range of 45,000 canadian to 48,000 is the sanger 215 a good option

Define 'good'. Depending on what you want, it could be the best boat in the world or the worst.(all boats are that way.)

IMO Sanger is the best bang for the buck going.

My buddy has a Sanger and it is awesome.
Talk to some people and get the weight distribution dialed in, nice boat.
I think they all have a cricket in the motor, I've accepted that.

i've always said, sangers are the most underrated wake boats out there.

We picked up a v230 last year about this time, and we love it! It was a 2007 model year and we got a smoking deal on it! Didn't have all the options and bling of more expensive brands but it had everything we need and we love it.

The v230 is a big boat. Sits high out of the water and rides great through rough water. We got the v230 because we like to surf more then board. Had it been the other way around we probably would have looked more at the v215.

The stock ballast (like most boats) just isn't enough. The first thing I did was pull the hard tanks and replace with Fly High 750's. We opted to get the boat without a stereo so I added in a HU, 4 Polk speakers, and an amp to get us through the summer. This winter I have put in a second amp and a 10" sub. The boat has everything I want except Perfect Pass, but that will probably have to wait until next summer. All in all it is a great boat!

Timothy, you will find everybody on wakeworld speaks very highly of Sangers. Also there are quite a few 2007-2008 brand new ones out there for awesome prices. V215's can had for 35-45, V230's for about the same and I have even seen a v237 for 49k. Those are all American dollars.

Yes, Sangers are great boats , I went through several price point boats until I bought my 2008 V215 and I can not say enough good things about it or the Sanger boat companies customer service.

I've got the D215 and am more impressed with it than I thought I'd be. I test drove everything in 2006 and was sure it would be the best boat for me. The V215 handled as well as quite a few of the d-drives and I seriously considered that too. I had some finicky warranty stuff after the first year and it was all fixed under warranty but Sanger was slow getting some of the stuff needed up to Alberta. It was all completed before the season started.
The boats feel very solid and yet very lively when you drive them. They handle storms in the Shuswap or prairie lakes easily (actually fun). I've pulled good skiers behind mine and they say it's very skiable but has a double bump. My kids surf with about a thousand pounds weight and the wake is clean for boarding.
I think the Bennett wake plate is an excellent option to get and you will love having a heater.
I'd buy another in a minute but I don't think I'll need to for 10 or 20 years.

edit: Oh, and the Stargazer Perfect Pass is an easy install

We have had our V215 for two summers now and love everything about it. Great wake, comfortable seating, awesome drivability and many other subtle features. Sanger is a solid company and will take care of you when it counts!

Here are pictures from the day we bought it. These were taken before I added speakers to the interior.

I take good care of my boat but I work it very hard when its running it's pretty much always under load surfing with roughly 2500lbs. I've been through three seasons with zero problems. Like Brett said WW'ers think very highly of Sanger boats.

Sanger owners are probably the most loyal owners on the site. There is a reason of course.

I love my V210, 650hrs of over weighted abuse and it has been rock solid. My next boat will be a V215 for sure.

I would love to ride behind that boat. I think Sanger is one of the best boats for the price.

I love the Sanger v215 wake. You gotta have the Acme 911 prop though.

most bang for the buck for sure.

Smokin' deal on a used Sanger-
Old     (airrantz)      Join Date: Jun 2004       02-01-2009, 9:56 AM Reply   
Wow that is a depressing deal. Makes me wonder what my 2003 V210 is worth these days. As far as Sangers go they are the best value for wake, rough water ride, storage, and overall performance out there in my opinion. Not to shabby of a surf wake for a 21 footer either.

How is the wake with stock weight, is there even a question and needs more? Anybody got pics or video while riding the Sanger, and what weight their at?
Old     (wake_upppp)      Join Date: Nov 2003       02-01-2009, 11:01 AM Reply   
215 wake with stock ballast is tiny. Add 1500 to 2k+ over stock and it's big and rampy.

That's an insane price on that 04

UploadThis is a good pick of Garys old Sanger V215, not sure of weight setup that day but it looks pretty good.

V215 is a great wakesurfing boat also.

Old     (wake_upppp)      Join Date: Nov 2003       02-01-2009, 9:55 PM Reply   
The 215 wake looks like it needs more weight in the nose or speed up. I like Darren's 210 wake pic much better...
