    Default Need help choosing a used boat

    Currently looking to purchase a family boat (5-8 people every time we are out). Used for a little of everything, but mostly boarding and surfing. Also, primarily on a small river (need decently high freeboard for others wake), but also larger lake. Hoping for the most comfortable for a crowd and best wake.

    Current options are
    2005 Tige 22v riders edition (100 hrs since rebuilt motor)
    2011 moomba outback V (worried this is to small and not enough wake)
    2005 moomba mobius lsv
    2001 mastercraft 205v
    2004 Centurion Avalanche

    Only surfed once behind a friends boat. I had a runabout before, so this would be us breaking into it. Most of my wake experience is behind a lat 90s tige and an early 2000s xstar.

    so looks like you are in the market for a budget boat. Buy an older 2006-2008 22.5" supreme v208.

    Spacious, good for wake boarding, and with ballast will throw a surf wave that will be good if not better than 100k boat.

    The ones listed are what is on the market within 300 miles, in my price range, and clean enough for me to be ok buying.

    not knowing anything else about them other than the list you posted for my coin the ones to go look at assuming options/hours/condition/price are all similar would be the moomba lsv/tige 22v/centurion avy.

    I'd probably lean more toward the 22v(as I have owned a similar hull and it'll outperform the lsv surfing) or the avy as back in the day centurions were one of the best surf hulls made. outback would be the no brainer if you ski but boarding/surfing any of the others will be a better choice and the mc is quite a bit older and sure it's the same price paying in part for the name on the side. lsv would be a good all around contender. everything well, nothing great.
    not sure your budget and location but there are several older mid2000's supra launch 22/24ssv's for sale right now that would be a good contender as well.


    good luck.

    Got a chance to go look at few today. Looks like I'm narrowed down to a Tige or (preferably) a moomba. Can anyone tell me what years the moomba models changed? I think the lsv and xlv changed in 2006 and again in 2014?
