2005 Supra Launch 21V
If youre a hard-hitting wakeboarder, the Godfather of wakeboard boats has an offer you cant refuse: a new V-drive. This sequel still maintains the depth, mammoth storage, and legendary wakes its known for, plus its loaded with extras other manufactures call options.
Moreover, with a flip of a switch, the built-in hydraulic wake plate kicks in to shape the wake you want, when you want it. Plus, the Gravity III Ballast System, Rad-A-Cage and double-up seating all come standard. With all that, you can count on whacking those wakes with more skill and precision than ever before. Maybe soon theyll be calling you the Godfather.

A good friend of mine picked up one of these last year and we have been riding together quite a bit. It is a great looking boat and as long as everything works, it is a killer boat. His Perfect Pass is broken, and it is extremely hard to keep the speed consistent with out it--almost impossible. I'm not a huge fan of how the ballast has no indicators of how full they are. we nearly popped them once. So, you have to stay on top of that. tower speakers don't work either. Not sure what's up with that. There are also some quirks with the battery switch getting bumped off when you hit a roller. Poor placement of the switch. There is plenty of storage, although I haven't decided if I am a fan of the bow playpen extending all the way up to the driver seat or not. I like it, but I might like a full walk-through better, I'm not sure. Handles like crap in slow speeds. It takes forever to get planed. BUT the boat is beautiful, and once it is at the speed you want it, the wake is pretty killer.
This is the third wakeboard boat I have owned, Malibu, Tige, and now this Supra. The interior, wake, and storage are as good or better than the Malibu. Blows the Tige out of the water. If I would suggest anything to Supra would be to make the 340hp motor standard. The 325hp lags a little bit getting out of the water. Upgrading to a better prop will help.

This is a great looking boat that flies under the radar. I like the fact the it is not too loud, but has all of the options. If you are looking for a great boat at a great price, this is IT!

I have nothing negative to say about this boat. I have been researching wakeboarding boats for two years know. Been behing the Malibu, Mastercraft, Centurion and Nautiques. This boat is very luxurious. Very deep and spacious, with a great free board. The transition for the wake is very wide. Nice wake for smooth pop. Your not paying for the name with the Supra it's the Luxury. Strongly recommend.
Rode behind one on a recent business trip down south. Super nice boat, great layout, well built. The wake is very rampy with a great landing area. Probably need to shorten the rope by about 5 feet from what you normally ride. Would be a great family boat, deep free board which I like over the 22ssv. Only negative is that it handles like a complete pig. Turns best with the plate down and out of the hole it took a long time to get on plane. I gave it an overall 4 because of the handling. It's a really nice boat for boarding, surfing and just hanging out though.

wow! Found the wake large but rampy using the same weight I use in my in my 2002 launch.But using the the trim I was able to get a nice lip on the crest of the wake. Found that by changing my trim and weight distribution I was able to get the wake the old style launch hull has. surfing was above average, a lot better than my inboard launch. Interior was greatly improved, up to Malibu standards. Being a big fan of Malibu's vlx, I found this boat equal to the challenge. One advantage is being able to adjust the wake with the the plate versus the 2 potition wedge.
