Looking at a 09 BU LSV with double captain chairs. Everything is perfect about the boat except this issue.

Going from a VLX (just sold it) and looking to upgrade in size due to family getting bigger and friends families getting bigger.

I have been looking around for photos and opinions on this set up and there isn't much out there. Does anyone have this layout or photos of it? Anyone done a conversion to wrap around seating?

Thanks!

One of the big issues is that you do not have storage under the observer seat like your normally would. So you lose a lot of storage

Yeah, aware of the loss of storage and about 1.5 seats (this is also where the chicas normally converge). Wife isn't stoked on the set up especially with a 10 month old. Saw a thread on themalibucrew.com about having a hard time getting malibu to sell the seats due to "liability" reasons. Am good friends with a guy who does upholstery so will see what he thinks.

Mainly looking for photos or discussion with people who own the same layout. The boat is close to me and has everything else I want including the bigger motor.

Oh, and if anyone knows of any LSV 2008+ below $65,000 US throw em up please!

Dual captains chairs ruins resale, so it better be a really good price as most folks don't want it (great for a 2nd sub as mentioned though).

Also, if you are looking at the '08 - '13 hull, I'd personally limit my search to '10+ so you can get the G3 tower.
