Hey I am thinking about possibly getting an Outback, and all the standard features really impress me. The only thing I am curious about is how much is the Wakeboard package and what all does it include?

I ordered my Outback at the January 2007 boat show. It was a while ago, but my recollection is that each of the wakeboard related options was separate. I don't remember a package. I ordered the tower and ballast. I think the ballast, which fits under the Outback's stern bench seat, is around 400 pounds. Not much weight, but fine for my purpose. The primary use of the boat is water skiing. However, I've seen some pretty accomplished boarding behind an Outback.

Cost of the tower was $1,795. The ballast (w/pump) was $795. Again, I think these numbers are correct. Note that these two items were standard on the LS model during the boat show. But the LS cost more than an Outback and is not a certified ski tow boat. I'm on a budget, plus I really wanted a ski boat. Not that I'm that good, it's just what I grew up with (Nautique) and fits my comfort zone.

Below is an early version of the spreadsheet I used to get a handle on pricing both the Outback and LS in the process of deciding which to buy.

Really like my Ooutback. - Deerfield

Thanks, I just read from the website that says

" The back seat can function as an extension of the sundeck. And with the addition of an optional Wakeboard package (as pictured), you will enjoy throwing a board in the water to mix up your slalom sets."

thats why I assumed it was a package but thanks for all your info that was great
