I have to admit this was my first thought after reading the posts about buying the biggest boat that I can afford and fit in storage as well as the predictions that skiing could be a thing of the past for us as well. I would definitely like to have more space for as many people as possible but if there isn't a huge difference between the Mondo and Mojo, then I probably would stick to the Mondo.

I probably should just stick with the Mondo but figured I would ask.
Thanks again everyone.
Mojo beam is 99"...I would assume Mondo isn't too much different.
But the boat would also be on the trailer, so that adds another 8-12"??

The Mojo is probably a little too long for my garage and would be a tight fit. Wouldn't want to prevent us from entering our house through the garage!
the boat may narrow some at the stern, but remember that the trailer guides poles are back there.
And the guide poles need to handle the boat at its widest point, so you are probably talking at least 110-115" if the beam is 99" and maybe even more.

Overall Length w/o Platform: 22' 6"
Overall Length w/ Platform: 24' 6"
Overall Length w/ Trailer: 26' 2"
Width (Beam): 99"
Overall Width w/ Trailer: 102"Draft: 27.5"
Weight - Boat only: 3,900 lbs
Weight - Boat and Trailer: 5,100 lbs
Capacity - Passenger: 16
Capacity - Weight: 2,400 lbs
Capacity - Fuel: 49 gals
Capacity - Ballast (Standard): 1,800 lbs
Capacity - Ballast (Optional): NA
Engine - Electronic Fuel Injection: 330 HP, V-8
I have a real hard time believing that the trailer is only 3" wider than the boat......each of the guide poles are at least a couple of inches each.
Actually, if its the width that you're worried about, then that would probably be a problem with all the Moomba models because even the OBV has a beam of 96"
I don't know what your house/garage situation is, but if that is the main man door from the house to the garage and you are worried about blocking the door, then you definitely need to get that figured out.

See if you can measure one up and then set up some old boxes, poles or whatever else you can scrounge up to build a "Mock Up" of the area that the boat will sit.
Better yet, ask the dealer if they could bring a boat over to your house if you are seriously going to be purchasing a boat at the end of the season. Boat shop owners tend to go way out of their way compared to something like auto sales. Cant hurt to ask. The worst thing they can say is "No". Got any local buddies with boats? Doesn't have to be a Moomba, just use someone else's as a reference.
Remember, you will need to back that thing in there after long and tiring weekends (with the family jetting into and disappearing into the house!) and the boat will be a foot or so off the side wall, which is tight. Any other cars in the garage? How often will the boat be in the garage, just for winter? Or every night?
When your boat is brand new, you might not mind crawling around it to get into the garage, but if you are married, it will get old (quickly) when it's not boating season if it is in the way.
