Good morning,

after extensively searching for a new boat, i think i am ordering a 2019 moomba today.

Is there is picture thread on this site? I thought finding the right boat was hard, picking colors and design seems to be even harder. Going with classic design. Can you guys help?

was thinking gun metal grey metal flake and black accent.. Never thought this would be that hard.

2019 moomba and Supra online configurators are not live yet.

Your dealer should be able to do it for you.

As far as color choices sure.....

Did your dealer show you what you want to build? Just curious if the dealers have the 2019 configurators.

They must have them as they are already ordering, receiving and delivering 2019ís.

just confirmed, colors for 19' are the same.. interiors colors have changed. they added TAN as a color and got rid of the dark grey option which is what i wanted.

bummer, i was hoping for a mid-grey color - something battleship-ish - for my next one...

What are you building?! is this your first new boat?

Most of the new boat images are housed in the monthly pics thread. Probably a little hard to find what you're looking for.

I'm silver metal flake (the next shade down from gunmetal), dark graphite (not black) and Captain blue on a classic pattern on my '18

SWEEEET!!! I love the Mondo

My $0.02: The black hull/accent is prone to show any blemishes - but looks awesome. My blue and graphite are bad, the black will be worse. I'd still do it the same though. If you trailer every weekend, you should think about this. Also, dark decks aren't near as hot as you might think and the deck color actually shows up A LOT as part of the interior. I'd consider dark there too. not sure what that looks like with the tan interior though, maybe light is better with that.

This might be my next one:

I'd go with the dark deck, it completes your sinister look...white decks are common dealer spec so the dark really stands out depending on vinyl selections.

great call gents..

what do you guys think about metal flake (gun metal).. my wife hates metal flake but think it really adds to the boat.

I love mine! It really does not stand out as much as I expected until the sun starts to get low, then it EXPLODES with color. I like the way it changes like that!

The Moomba flake is very nice in person, very deep. The Axis flake that I saw was... inconsistent?

The flake also HIDES blemishes really well. With it on the main panel, any little mishaps with docking or handling boards around your pretty boat are hidden until you get time to deal with them. I've got 1 or 2 right now.

I really like the metal flake in mine. In some lights you canít even tell it is metal flake. If it is in direct sun it really pops. I got a white hull and white deck. Mainly because I was fearful of rock chips on the bottom from trailering and that a darker deck would be too hot. I figured black would be harder to maintain also. If I did it again, I would probably go with a black hull and dark color deck. They are right, it can look really sweet with the right interior vinyl combo. However, I am still happy with how mine turned out.

We had a hard time deciding between gun metal flake and silver flake because the colors are not realistic on the configurator. Real world pictures helped. We didnít want a black accent either. A couple dealers kept telling us to get black and once the boat came in the loves the white we decided to go with. We also went with the gun metal flake over the silver flake.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180917/44176dceb8e1af84359988862915a3dd.jpg

Funny, my wife was the complete opposite, she sais she wouldn't ride the boat unless it sparkled. And no, I'm not being sexist, she actually said she loves the sparkly paint, she needs her boat to have bling.
I have the metal flake in the black portion of the hull. I think it looks great.

Love the boats. I think i am going this route with gun metal flake and black bottom and graphite deck. 27670

I am used to having a black boat.

Question, is this boat a 2019? are those the new 10" wetsounds tower speakers? or are those the 8". i went with the 10" on my order and hope they are not too big.

Any Moomba ordered now will be a 2019, the online boat builder is still showing 2018's. Your dealer should be able to tell you any changes from the 18's to the 19's. 10" Wetsounds are definitely not to big and they sound awesome.

My boat is a 2017. The gun metal flake we liked better. The silver flake was not dark at all. Those are 10Ē. Rev 10ís.

you don't find they get in the way at all do you? i wanted the 10" because having a good sounding stereo is a must for me.

I'm 6'4" and I've never had a problem with the REV10's in my boat. they're tucked out into the corner well enough to never be a concern.
