    Try this. And this won't hurt anyone or anything at all - but it will definitely help you out too I think.
    Call your local dealer and setup a demo for a Mobius LSV and a Supra Sunsport 21V, the Mobius's comparison boat. I think you will then be able to feel the differences we are talking about and it doesn't cost you a dime!

    ...Except when you get the new boat fever after riding on one of them! Then we might see you posting up in the New Owners thread.

    I agree with most of the points here. I don't think I've ever ridden in a Moomba so I have little to offer but I did look at both when buying.

    In the Supra line up, the 21v has always been a little different. It's nose and general shape is different from the 22 and 24, which remind me more of the lsv and xlv lines. This could be wrong because I didn't spec check but I'm thinking the Supra's typically have a wider beam for the same length in boat.

    If I had to go pick today between a 2008 22ssv and a 2008 xlv loaded ... I think it would be a hard choice. It will be interesting to hear your take as it sounds like you might get to directly compare them side by side.

    I think I could jump on that wagon too.

    I won't spend much time on the moomba as that is the x wife, we get along great but we don't vacation together. I have been on their boat in the water once and in the boat a few other times, I will be on the supra alot.

    I recently was at the boat show and the Malibu was the best looking boat at the show, but would not be my first choice for a wakeboard boat if money was no concern. That would be the G23, it's not the best looking boat but its a pretty amazing "water tractor"

    Having the money or not paying 125+k for a wake boat is ridiculous! At that range you are getting into really nice cruiser territory. Unless someone is a budding pro or has some crazy need to compensate for something they lack or make them look/feel cool I think that boat and any other in that range is completely unnecessary and ridiculous...IMHO

    I would not know what to do with a cruiser so no thanks. As for the G I agree the price is crazy and the boat unnecessary for 99% of is out there but that's not stopping sales. Over on PN it seems every few days a "my new G23" thread pops up. Short of tripling my annual income or winning the lottery I would never spend my hard earned dollars on a 125k boat. But if someone was giving them away and I got to choose . . . G23.

    There are plenty of folks who think paying $40k - 60k for a boat is ridiculous. Of course, they don't own yachts. Saw a show the other night with a $4 mil houseboat. If you're loaded, $125k for a nice boat or car is kind of minor. For some it's just a business expense.

    To each their own I guess. However, I must say if I could, I would have no problem dropping 400k on a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider.
