2004 Supra Launch SS
The New Generation of Wake Domination. Taken the proven reputation of the Launch, combine it with the Sunsport (decked with luxury appointments and sexy lines) and presto! You get the Launch SS. Well, it wasn't exactly that easy, but the results are magical. A very upscale wakeboard tow boat pampering both baorders and passengers. The Launch SS with it's new transitional hull, the Launch SS steers effortlessly through loaded double-ups. With the most standard horsepower in the industry, the Launch SS powers through routine after routine. Fill the ballast, adjust the wakeplate, position the "double-up" seat for extra viewing pop a CD in the stereo, remove up to 11 boards from storage, check the depth, anow your ready and all this is with standard features. The Stainless Steel "Rad-A-Cage" (an industry first) folds below windshield height for storage. The sexy lines are accented with flashy graphics and stainless steel rub rail and hardware. Extras that are standard- SS platform rail and handrails, SSrub rail, SS through hull fittings, diamond plate platform nonskid standard features that are not even offered by others.

Throws an overall great wake. Best surf that I've rode behind as well as a clean launch for all levels of boarders.
I didn't like the wake because it curls over and was to rampy

Unfortunately, the Launch SS has been removed from the 2005 line, but if you are looking for a versatile ride in a used boat or a hardcore wake boat, this is the way to go. Built on the same hull as the Launch SSV, the SS kicks out an incredible wake. My setup is different from most, as you can see the weighting isn't in the 2000#+ range, but with weight evenly distributed no more is needed. A lot of people weight this hull in a rediculous fashion, then ride with a short line and their wake plate down 1/2 way to keep the wake from curling over. If you concentrate on an even distribution and keep the plate all the way up, 68-73' has an unbelievable vertical kick with super long landing zones-very similar to a SAN-and I am a former SAN owner. If you decide to hit a slalom course, put the wake plate all the way down and the wake is great. Interior vinyl work is beautifully stitched, soft padding on seats, great driver comfort and visibility. The only drawback is that the back support on the back seat is a little low, but we actually use folding stadium seats (around $15 from Dick's) for sitting on sacks on the sides to watch the show.
