Saw that Supra just posted their new boat on social media. Judging by their website it has replaced the SG. Looks like it has some cool features that are new to them like subfloor ballast, storage container in the floor, dual sub, etc. I personally love the look of the new tower as well. Thoughts?

Tower looks pretty cool. I hate the ones that mount super far back like on the recent Sangers. Ugh.

So can anyone make sense of the Supra naming scheme for me now? The numbers used to at least correlate with engine options right? But not anymore d/t new Raptor specs. Letters just a crap shoot?

Doesn't make too much sense to me either. Sanger has an "SL" as well. So weird.

The letters do seem a bit random haha. The numbers still correlate with the engines loosely though, just not exactly.

400=400 ft/lbs
450=440 ft/lbs
550=575 ft/lbs

Ehh not sure where you're reading that. On the SL site they list:

400=403
440=427
575=580

They are all fine except that 440... why only 427 ft/lbs?

Saw this boat in TN a few weeks ago. It's a homerun by Supra. Along with the Subfloor ballast, center floor cooler, surfboard trunk, dual subwoofers, and new power folding tower, it also has double the ballast pumps, and the new Autowake is legit. I was very impressed with this boat. Didn't get to ride it but the wake/wave looked really good. Can't wait till we get one here to actually ride behind it!!

Its like they combined the Nautique tower base, Malibu Tower legs, and MC power tower concept made it look awful. Like the direction Supra is going......

Where are all the people complaining about the cost of a Supra, $124,900 starting price.... I always read people bashing MC/CC for cost, this boat is on par with all of these.

Haha I'm not complaining about the price because I'll never spend that much money on a boat. Still looks cool, though. (although after seeing the side shot of the boat with the tower up, and almost vertical, I'm having second thoughts about it)

Tower is mucho weirdo. Agree but Sangers new Apollo tower has decent lines. I fear we're about to see alot of people going into Sanger/Supreme due to the extreme value they present and the performance of their boats. Think Camry vs. Ferrari. I for one will be looking closely at the Sanger and Supreme's for my next boat (though to honest, a used G23 isn't going to be ruled out).

Didn't even know such a thing existed. I don't use facebook but it looks like that's now the primary way Sanger gets info out on its products. It's web site is super old and has useless information. That tower doesn't look too bad, I just wish it was mounted farther forward!

I might "Surf Left" better than the other boats....

This is an idea behind the letters. SR, SA, SL, SE, "SY in the future." R A L E Y probably wildly incorrect but fun to think about.

Good looking ride. I'd hit it!

I'm honestly shocked you guys are not digging this new tower? I love it. The look is great and the function is even better. Tower speakers out of the way unless you are 6'5" or taller, bigger bimini that actually goes into a boot, power tower will get your boat into an 8' garage, lighting is great too. Oh and you can customize the colors!

Proof positive that everyone has differing ideas of what looks good. I find the boat and tower as fugly as the G23 if not more so. But it is definitely the way things are going.

Did you see the new 2018 Axis?

Agreed. I like the look a lot and it seems like it should be very functional. I would bet that the look of the tower will grow on people over time. I've always liked the idea of being able to tow long distances with the tower down as well, which will now be possible. Overall seems like a big upgrade over the old Pro Edge tower.

Supra's video on the tower from their website

I like everything about the tower, except the fact that it is so straight up and down. Takes away from lines of the boat, IMO.

Tower is super nice and very good looking in person. The "tire kickers" are always going to complain about something.

Yikes. Tower is awful, but I like the boat.I do really like being able to tow with my tower down on my MC though.

SO what do you do if your not tall enough to reach the location to put the tower down while it is moving? that is a terrible design....

It was funny how when the power tower came out on MC everyone said that was pointless and dumb, but Supra copies it and its AWESOME!!!!!!

This is in part why it is awesome. Your kids can't reach it! Anyone button mashing the dash on an MC could put the tower down directly on someone, where this requires an adult to press and hold the button all the way down. 90% of adults will be able to reach it, those that can't can stand on the flip seat.

There were also a bunch of reported problems with the MC power tower not working right. Maybe this one will be more reliable?

Ffs you have to put ropes up there, and deal with the bimini, and most store boards. Who isn't reaching the top of their tower? Unless you only pull tubes from the pylon.
Supra is attracting more new Ibuyers than ever, just look around here, and in about a year will have another all new (redesigned) huge boat so pretty sure they'll continue to pull buyers from other "better" brands. Lol.

had a power tower on my previous MC and never had one problem. It was a great looking tower and functioned really well.

I agree, no rake on the tower make's it fugly. I don't care if it's canted 22 degress to the east, that straight up and down looks like something I would have sketched in chemistry in grade 10. It kinda looks like they smashed a couple malibu towers together.

I really like this new boat. I've had two Supra boats (and currently have a Supra) though I was set on a G for my next boat due to the subfloor ballast, loads of storage, and of course the wake. I looked at every boat available locally while deciding on my next boat and nothing compared to the G for my purposes. We go out with 2 slalom skis, 2 wakebords, 2 surfboards, and a set of beginner skis. The boat is packed with stuff so I need more storage. This new Supra SL looks to be a great option though I need to see the boat and wake in person. I'm a little skeptical of the surf tabs since convergence devices seem to yield a better wake. I'm hoping the wakeboard wake is great too. Personally love the tower and color combos and glad to have something that seems to tick all the boxes for me like the G. Auto Wake is very interesting and something no other boat has - I'm hoping it works well.

I got a chance to dig through the same SL in the video link that I posted above. IMO the SL is the best Supra made to date. With the sub floor ballast the storage is out of control and finally opens your boat up for all that gear you don't really need, LOL. The space inside is perfect and finally has the storage in the floor for that cooler and no need to move anyone to access it. The tower is crazy sturdy and the new way the racks bolt in is super clean. The shade top is perfect sized and easy to figure out the folding/unfolding pattern to get it up quickly. Helm of course is my favorite part since I'm always driving. Driving a regular surfer and no problem seeing over the bow at anytime during the sessions. The wave is fantastic and just as incredible as the promo shots. The surfer would get so far back I was ready to cut throttle and he would recover with ease. I never got a chance to test or see the wakeboard wake. This is a home run by Skiers Choice.

Skiers choice put a lot of work into this one! It's a bad boy when you actually get to see it and the tower is smooth moving and solid. Love the new windshield design with the backlit piece of glass added.
