Someone must have found the page and had it pulled. The link no longer works, maybe in a couple of days. I believe the SC product is slated for a launch of 07/20 based upon rumblings on the Moomba forum.

Looks like the new Supra got pulled just now as well. Hopefully they are rushing back to make improvements on the tower looks

I really like the look of the new boat and tower. If any of the rumors are true it has some really cool features. I think it's like anything new it takes a little time to grow on you but I really like it.

Sounds like them dates were from the rumor train and it's really set for early AUG coming from Skiers Choice themselves.

Marine Products in SLC, UT has a 2018 Max on their showroom floor right now. Saw it a couple of days ago. Pretty impressive looking! Again, just looks like a bigger version of the Helix. Would love to get a demo behind it soon as I was impressed with the Helix.

First teaser shot of the boat just got released on Moomba's social accounts. Nose looks like a Helix but bigger

Can't wait to hear feedback on the wake fully sacked out. I checked out the one at Marine Products and it seems like it will be a beast.

Moomba released their press release:

https://www.moomba.com/2018-updates

Can't wait to hear from people who get to ride it fully ballasted out. I saw the one at Marine Products and it looked like it had potential for a big wake.

My only concern is that it seemed like it might be underpowered for the high elevation lakes here in UT. For example, boat+ballast is 7500lbs, Throw in gear+gas+people, and you're around 8500lbs. Seems like a 550 might be needed in the future. I've read that the 440 doesn't have much on the 400, I might be wrong though.

Boat looks great. I would have probably pulled the trigger on a Mojo but the bow rise killed it for my wife. This thing looks to have that same issue. It's riding way nose high. I am 6ft tall and needed to almost stand behind the older mojo. Same seems to go here.

But man is Moombq killing it with their new designs and boats.

Here's the specs on it. https://crm.skierschoice.com/files/r...8.5x11_Max.pdf

Starting at $61,580 with 3,000 lbs of ballast, Fusion Stereo, and a tandem trailer.

I really like what moomba is doing expecially keeping the prices in check. May have to look at them for 2018

This is my biggest concern when looking at boats. When I drive I don't use the booster seat ever and it's a pass or fail depending on the bow rise. So far I've had a 2016 Craz, 2016 Mojo, and a 2017 Helix and never had a problem with them sitting while boarding or surfing. Max does look like it's riding a little high but the real judge is driving and riding the boat.

I'm in the same boat here for us high elevation riders. I was actually surprised when I got a Mojo on plain with full MAX ballast and didn't use the launch system. I hope to get a decent demo on this max and for sure will have to use the launch to see how it does. Pretty stoked on this boat, now to see the real justice and get it to 23.5 mph and play with the wake.

I was going to say the same thing about the bow rise in that video.

Hard to tell with that T-Rex in the front.

Got a chance to drive/ride in this boat a few weeks ago. It's going to be a big hit! Well done Moomba.

How was the wakeboard wake? On the moomba forum some are claiming g23 stock size. What was your experience?

I was very impressed with the wake/wave but without actually riding it, I can't say for sure if it's G23 size or not. I will say that with full ballast and 17-18mph you had a very nice clean wake which most boats do not at that slow of speed. I was very impressed with that.

What's the deal with the tiny biminis they put on so many of these boats? Do people really not like shade? Seems like the manufactureres keep making them smaller.

Not sure the shade top is any smaller then on the previous A2 towers, I think it's the massive amount of boat that makes it look smaller though.

it looks small to me too, if its a 23ft boat it should have a proportionate amount of shade for its size. You can bet more than a couple of the 16/17 people it holds aren't going to want to hang in the sun all day. If it was mine id want equal parts shade they have up front also going to the rear. I think it would suit this size boat a lot better and function better.

Their video sure makes it look like a lot of bow rise.

Really interested in the all New Max !!! Does anyone have any feedback on the boat and what best pricing should be ?

I want to see the max in action but that picture seems like it would be hard to fit 12 people in that boat.
