Nothing is for sure yet, but due to a recent diagnosis of cancer to my Mother-in-Law my wife wants to move back to our home town to be closer in-case it is the end....and the potential (one interview left) for me to get a REALLY good new job in the area means we'll probably be making the move and buying something on the water again.

...a buddy and I have owned 3 boats together in the past 10 years and would do it again -- I'm not worried about owning with a buddy either, it would be our 4th "co-owned" boat, we're best friends and the past ones have all worked out great.

What we want:
* 23' or more, and wide ... something with large interior
* Great for wakesurfing, decent wakeboard wake
* Already "done" .... we don't want to take a Maristar/Sunsetter/etc and add a tower/ballast... it can be those, but should already have that stuff
* Perfect pass to keep my marriage in tact
* Something within a 8-10 hour drive of central Wisconsin

The top end of the budget would probably be 40k +/- .... cheaper is by no means a bad thing.

Current hunt will probably be on:
Moomba Mobious XLV
Supra 24ssv
Malibu 23 LSV
MC X-30 ... maybe X-star 04+ (They never seemed that great for surfing though)
Tige 23v / 24v
Epic 23v (finding them is tough though)

.... anyone have anything good, bad, otherwise to say about these choices given our "wishlist"?

Any of those sound like good choices. If it was me, I'd be searching for the X30 or 24SSV.

I know that you said 23 foot but this guy has had his listed for several months and would probably drop his price a bit. http://appleton.craigslist.org/boa/4423091316.html

I guess with anything similar size I wouldn't really feel like it was an upgrade...

I should have mentioned my brother and mom bought the Supersport off my buddy and I afew years back, so it is still "at home" and I am able to use it, but they were looking to sell it off. My brother started a business and could use the money and my mom wants a new pontoon boat. So if 21' was what we wanted I would probably just buy the boat back from them and not have a payment to worry about.

... My buddy that would go in on it with me is now married and has a kid, I'm married now, and we have a fair amount of family on the lake, so the extra space of a bigger boat is our largest concern.

BEAUTIFUL boat! .... the colors just perfect!
For the price though I think I would lean towards this one near Milwaukee and just have the dealer add Perfect Pass

10k cheaper, and similar hours... only thing I don't like the original titan tower is pretty ugly

The buddy I would be going in on has always wanted a B52 or Tomcat.... this might be a great option. Ian, you've had MB's for years correct?.... surf way pretty good?

Nick the one you posted was my uncles boat. He traded it last year on a MXZ, he bought the LSV new it new. If you have any questions on it let me know I can get you some info.

Nick, I was in a similar situation I sold a nautique ss and I wanted a boat that could fit more people with a solid surf wave on both sides as well as a great wakeboard wake. I test drove an 23lsv tige 22ve and finally an mb f21 and IMO the mb outperformed them both.

I think on those models the V23 the surf wave was very good.

I might be hitting you up in the near future! I don't want to get his hopes up for a sale if things fall through on my end, but it looks like he took great care of the boat... there is one other LSV on OI that is maybe a 01-02 that is like 22k, for that price maybe its worth a look too.

Every photo I have seen the MB's all look amazing, I didn't realize there was a dealer so close to WI, I thought they were more of a West Coast boat...


.... I should also add that an Axis A22 would be on the list too, they're starting to get close to the price point I'm looking for.
