There are better boats in that budget. Look for a 1993-1997 sport nautique. NOT a 1992, not the same. The sport nautiques put out great wakes.
Also, 15k could get you a 1996 super sport nautique, another v-drive type boat, a 1996+ Mastercraft Prostar 205, Malibu Sunsetter or Sunsetter VLX. A malibu echelon will make one of the best wakes for a closed bow ski boat in the mid 90s as it has the same SV23 hull as the original wakesetters were built on.
Plenty of options, don't settle on that short small Nautique...
