Talk to your local dealer, '11 was unveiled this past weekend but I'm not sure if I should be the first one to post pictures ;) I think all Moomba owners will be stoked, and they should be.

Your dealer is either tight lipped or non-informed, or for doesn't consider the changes noteworthy enough :D I can't be one speaking/showing before dealers but I think most Moomba owners will be stoked.

Because it's something awesome that can be retrofitted? Or will we only be stoked if we buy a new 2011? Yes, I am attempting to drag this information out of you!

I agree that tower looks hideous.

I have that tower on my 2001 OB LS and, while I don't like it compared to some of the new towers and especially the malibu illusion, most people think it looks very good on my boat. I certainly like the looks of it much better than the standard rad a cage for the OB and OBV. It looks similar to, but not quite as good as, the standard tower for the 06 and up LSV and XLV in my opinion. To each their own though.

kaneboats
07-19-2010, 05:49 PM
It would really take a lot to sell me on the idea of a better tower on the 06-10 LSV. It matches the lines of the boat so well I don't see how you could improve it. But, then again, I'm not a designer or anything. Let's see what they come up with -- with an open mind.

I am hoping for the harpoon gun on the bow for inconsiderate boaters.

Isn't that the same tower on the older Malibus (maybe still on the vride?) And the lines on that Supra are SICK. How big is that boat?!

wolfeman131
07-20-2010, 09:14 PM
hmmmmmm . . .

tower on the LSV looks like a Malibu knock-off. I like the looks, but I'd rather have the old tower design w/ the Z5 Cargo bimini.

Isn't that Supra tower the same from last year's World's Edition? I'm not 100% sold on that design either, but that is one heck of a good looking boat! Wish it was on my lift!

JesseC
07-20-2010, 09:17 PM
I LOVE the LSV tower!!! That has always been my favorite design. I will have to get used to the Supra tower. It looks kinda busy.

ian ashton
07-20-2010, 09:29 PM
I absolutely love that Supra - is that a 24'?

The Illusion towers look really good on the Moombas, but its kind of lame taking an almost direct copy of another manufacturers product.

ian ashton
07-20-2010, 09:31 PM
Also, that LSV looks huge in the bow.

07-20-2010, 11:10 PM
The only thing I don't like about that type of a tower is your only option for a mirror is a windshield mounted mirror. I much prefer the tower mirrors. Seems pretty minor, but a lot of times it's just a driver and a boarder for me, so the mirror is key.

Other than that, I really like the look of the LSV.

jmvotto
07-20-2010, 11:18 PM
al, did you PS the "moomba logo" on a malibu.... and color the 2010 worlds edition of the supra tower????

Like the look, but as Ian says not that original. I guess the sea rays, larsons, four winns & sea doos are now getting the standard towers, guess wakeboats have to make a statment and stay together.

hey just as long as they don't copy the price from a malibu too! I'm cool with a knock off as long as it still costs thousands less. I think that LSV tower looks great- and I love the way the windshield looks on that boat. man it looks like that would make it much easier to drop the tower for garage parking too.

jester
07-21-2010, 12:41 AM
DANG YOU SC.... DANG YOU. I LOVE the tower on the LSV. That is the main reason I was looking at buying a malibu. I really wanted to put this tower on the Moomba back in 08. Now it looks like I have to stay away from my boat dealership when the 11's come in since I might walk out with a new boat.

Not a big fan of the new Supra tower.

Csm, I have seen the malibu's with this type of tower that have a tower mirror. It comes out from the top of hte tower above the driver and bends down to just above the windshield.

Maybe they were thinking, "Hey, it would be easier to run tower speakers with this new tower! Lets go this way." We all know running tower speakers is a pain!

All kidding aside, I like the new design. I would like to see some more color choices.

07-21-2010, 04:16 AM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Malibu Knock off! :(
The Supra tower looks great in my opinion but to completely copy the swoop??? That just makes the Moomba line look like a copycat IMO! Totally unoriginal... totally dissapointed. I thought the Moomba XTP was one of the best looking towers out there.

I really hope that was a JOKE Cab!

Good, someone posted them so I didn't have to!

That new boat is NOT the 24V. They are doing away the the 24v and it's a brand new boat, it's called the 242. I was in that same boat last week and absolutely LOVE it! The deck is a little bit higher past the rubrail than the old design, and the tower is similar to last year except that the tower is fully powdercoated and the rails are powdercoated as well, instead of Line-X'd.

Regarding the Moomba V2 tower, it's a great design and works extremely well, the tower has a spring-assist to make it really easy for a single person to break it down.

I really like the look of the LSV tower but i wish it was more original. Otherwise that is one sexy boat!

The Supra tower is awesome, different then anybody else's and still very functional. Plus you get the Z5

JesseC
07-21-2010, 01:48 PM
I really want the new LSV. I personally do not care that it appears to be a "direct copy" All of the previous towers on almost all the boats look very similar to me. I have always loved the Malibu Illusion tower. The one on the Supra reminds me of last years Axis boat towers. That Supra has to be one of the best looking boats I have ever seen!!!

bjames
07-21-2010, 07:49 PM
How dificult is it geting in and out for the boat with the new LSV V2 tower? I have never been in a Malibu but it looks like the tower is right in the way of egress.

Samson makes a tower mirror for the Malibu that i'm sure will work for the new Moomba tower.

copy/pasted:

"The Moomba's are getting a strong tower, the new V2 tower isn't a mirror image of the Illusion X tower, it's an improvement on it. The breakaway system is easier to use, the pins that allow the tower to collapse are easier to insert and remove, the header had an additional piece of oval pipe added down the center for reinforcement and the bases have been totally revamped. Also, the powder that's being used in the powder coating process is a higher quality than the old gloss powder that you saw on Illusion X towers."

Can someone tell me what the difference between "powdercoating" and painting is? Either "powdercoating" is BS or there are people out there claiming that their stuff is "powdercoated" when it's really just paint or paint with an additive. How do you tell the difference?

New Guy
07-22-2010, 06:01 PM
Powder coating is sprayed on dry and heated to a specific temperature to bake it on. The finish is alot thicker and more durable then regular enamel paint.

i love the look but looks like the tower base is a bit restrictive if your in the back seat. Great look and certainly beats those silly support bars on the 10's that keep falling onto the top rail!

Razzman
07-22-2010, 10:42 PM
I wouldn't want that tower on an LSV due to the gunwale restriction. It pretty much makes it impossible to board from a dock, not to mention the view restriction from the cabin for passengers. An XLV may be a different story.

I agree that the Supra is looking good.

The LSV, beyond the tower (which I personally don't like) I don't see any change. I'm sure there are some changes, but nothing obvious (again, besides the tower). I don't think the windshield is any different than what has been on there for a while either. The LSV is, and always will be a solid boat, so I'll be interested to see what other changes have been made.

I know a guy who had an Illusion tower on his Malibu that sheered off the boat. The pins that held it in place (I'm assuming that held it up), sheered completely off. So, I hope that spring assist this new tower has aids in supporting it while up in rough water...

My 2006 LSV has three tracking fins while it looks like the 2011 has two. So that's one thing I noticed that is different but I don't know if that changed hit year or in previous years.

Anyone else know of any noteworthy differences between the 2011 and the previous models?

Good call Cab. My LSV also has 3. I think the change to 2 was this year.
