Anyone know why I should not buy a 05 21v. Just come back from the boat show and I want it. But all my research was in the moomba xlv. HELP

I guess there is no reason you shouldn't get the 21V unless you just really need the storage of the XLV. I kinda look at the 21V as a mini-me of the XLV, deep hull, v-drive, good amount of storage, just a little shorter and won't hold as many people. I guess the only other factor there might be is towing.

Iím dieing to tell you no, no, buy a Malibu!

(this from an brand new 05 Mobius LSV owner)

I have no real advice, I didn't want that much boat.

What about the wake the 21v produces is it as good as the moomba? And is the hull of the 21v the same as the older Launch with an update center chine? I liked the malibu but its 50 gs and Im pushing it by spending mid 40's..

I can tell you, the 21V wake is amazing, one of my fravorite. I wouldn't say it was better than the XLV, just different. To me, its a little more vert at the top but with a nice rampy transition. The 21V hull is the EXACT same as the direct drive Launch.
