    Glad you've had good luck so far, but you're playing with fire.

    I don't recall too many lakes in Kuwait (or Iraq or Bahrain); lots of sand though.

    Sounds like he needs it for the ocean.

    If so, I would not be looking at a Moomba or a Yamaha. I don't know what you should be looking for, but open-bow sport boats are typically used on lakes, rivers and small bays. Regular 4 foot swells are not going to be fun in a sub-24 foot boat.

    How about something like this:

    Not an expert by any means in this area, Just throwing out a model. How about a Mastercraft X-80. At 28' and over 6,000 lbs, probably better than any moomba just due to its massive length. Downside is the massive price tag. There are used ones out there though.

    Are you looking to ski/wakeboard in 2-4 waves?

    I used to have a 25" boat that was molded from a Scarab design that had 2X225 screamers, but it was a pain to pull anything. It needs speed to settle and get its nose down, but then it would be too fast for pulling anyone.



    I want something for wakeboarding.


    In good days we get this:



    But most of the time we get this:



    Just to be clear, the 2-4 foot wave the boat will only see when going to one of the islands (about 25 minutes ride), but the wakeboarding will be done in weather like the two above pics.

    That's really a tough one. The XLV might just do it but even that one is made for inland use, not at sea. I wonder if a small cruiser might be the best thing to look for.
