2005 Moomba Mobius LS
Lauded as the best-value boat in wakeboarding, the Mobius LS is ideal for those looking for a premiun wakeboarding boat, but holding to a budget under $30,000. With a swept-back Rad-a-Cage, rear Gravity I Ballast system and CNC prop as standard equipment, the Mobius LS is ready to rock right out of the box. Opt in the front bag Gravity II Ballast system and your day will be a wake-making dream. In addition, the newly redesigned hull produces huge wakes while maintaining the awesome handling and maneuverability of a direct-drive boat. There is no better buy than the Mobius LS.

I was concerned when I bought this boat because of the low price. After putting in a solid year I no longer have worries. This is a great boat. If you are looking for a value in a cross-over boat look no further. This boat easily fits my family of five plus all our toys. The wake on this boat is very versatile ranging from an almost competition slalom to a very decent wakeboard size at slower speeds. I am a big fan of the hydraulic wake plate as well as the cruise control. Just thought I would add my two cents as I found these reviews helpful when I was shopping for my boat. Best of luck.

With this weight there is a very clean big wake. Handling drops very quikly with the weight, but its worth it!
i have a outback....not a mobius..i love that thing.....its a dirtect drive, but the boat came w/ a grav 1 ballast, throw a few fattys in and a few friends and the thing throws..great boat..great value
Great boat. Wake is a wide but has the same pop as the supra boats. ;-) Same Manufacturer.
First, you gotta know that what's important to me is quality, reliability and versatility - i.e. value. I don't care at all for plushiness or luxury in a boat I'm buying for sports. I've got a living room at home for that!Second, I've been skiing slalom for many years, but then I discoverd wakeboarding about two years ago and, well, let's just say I went ballistic at that point and decided to drop 40-some K$ ($Canadian) on a boat. Althought I am spending a great majority of my water time wakeboarding, I do still love to take out the ski for a couple of sets on a glassy day.I've spent a lot of time doing my research for a boat that will do great in both those sports and I have not been disappointed with the Mobius LS. The slalom wake is very nice, but I know it's the WB wake you want to hear about the most, so here it is:With the stock ballast (rear tank only) plus two passengers (the driver plus an observer), you'll get a god shaped wake, but that a serious boarder will outgrow it quickly. Add 4 or 5 more people and you see a great difference in wake size. This winter I'm adding another 900lb ballast, and I'll post a review as soon as I try it out next summer.Finally, get the following options absolutely: 1- hydrolic wakeplate 2- Perfect Pass. While I don't feel the need to go back on the benefits of PP, I do think it's worth mentioning that the wakeplate is a great added feature. It will not make the wake bigger or anything, but it does change the angle (ramp?) of the wake quite a lot. My wife likes a smooth ramp for more distance and less height (wakeplate about 3/4 of the way down), while I prefer a steeper wake for more air (all the way up). If you're going to ski, bring the plate all the way down for a smooth flat wake at 30 m.p.h. plus.Merry X-over boating!Santa
Excellent Crossover boat. Dry boat with wakeplate down will give you a great ski wake, not quite tournament quality though. Fill the Gravity II ballast (800 lbs) and you will have an intermediate size wake. Add a couple of side sacks, 5-6 friends, and put the wakeplate all the way up, the wake will be approaching tournament level.
