We’re no professionals by any means but let me tell you it throws more than enough of a wave with just the wife and I in boat. Eventually we may add weight as our skills grow but for the first time/average surfer stock will do just fine for a season or two. In my opinion, go for the boat with the options that will suit you and your family the best even if it’s slightly over your price range you’ll be happier in the long run.

    Good choice and price-point for that boat.

    Yes we are extremely happy with what we got after waiting so long. Up to 7hours on it now so we’re almost done with the 10hr break-in point. Only another 15 before we have to swap out the “break-in” oil. Even the pups got over the idea of having to wear shoes after going for a evening cruise.

    Thank you!! I guess all I can really say is you’re the one making the payments on which ever boat you choose. Go with which boat suits the needs of your family. Whether that be price, performance, or looks I’m sure you’ll be happy with a new toy!

    You can always fly out and check it out, I did that the first time. Now I don't bother but this is my 3rd boat and car purchase over the Internet. Generally, you can find a way cheaper boat out west, even factoring in flight, hotel and shipping.

    You have to do your due diligence, a certfied dealer doing a water test is a must.

    Also you have to pull the trigger quick, there's no waiting and thinking about it. If it's priced right it'll be gone.

    This is a good point. There was an SE on Facebook that was priced at $76k. It was sold in 1 day by the private owner. People were asking why that price, dude wanted it gone and that was his loan payoff.

    I figure it's a starter-boat to get the person hooked on the MC brand, then spend more $$ with an upgrade.

    A 20-footer has a limit on how 'good' the surf wake will get. Any brand.

    I also looked at the nxt as i was coming from a mastercraft and was always happy. But the NXT isn't a mastercraft as far as i am concerned. Its the most boring boat of all. Very plain, nothing exciting, usually sold with the 320 hp motor (only option in the 20) WHICH is probably enough, but you get more with moomba. The tower on the NXT is hideous. The dash is nothing to look at and a bit thing that i noticed was you can't sit by the tower. The handles will dig right into the back of your neck. I did show this to one of the factory reps at a boat show and he took some notes and said it was quite obvious and that he appreciated the feedback. So who knows, that may change. But for the same or less money the moomba was better. You do get some of the MC quality but at the cost of "extremely boring" boat.

    MC should have called it something else like BU and SC does. It screams cheap when its not really cheap. It looks cheap and plain. MC can do better than NXT. The dealer close me won't even order any for stock, says they just aren't that in demand.

    When shopping in Feb., I spent a day in OKC looking at a list of boats, & 2 days in DFW area. Slalom Shop guy in Lewisville said they wouldn't negotiate more than $1,500 on anything used and all his inventory would be sold in the next 90 days, TX Mastercraft guy said, "if you find something in your budget in decent shape, buy it right away". Just confirmation it's a sellers market especially as the weather warms.

    Last day in TX I drove out to BFE to a private seller. Boat was in decent shape and the price was right. Wrote him a check and drug it home that day. Most important thing once you buy, QUIT SHOPPING.
