    I didn't think they were worth half again as much.

    There is much more to the upgrade from Moomba to Supra other than cosmetics...I've owned both.

    There has to be significant structural differences.

    Example:
    Makai weight 5200# at 24’6” 102 beam
    SR 4950# at 21’ 102 beam
    SA 5450# at 22’8” 102 beam
    MAX 4500# at 22’6” 102 beam
    Mojo 4400# at 23’ 100 beam

    That really is a good question, where do shorter boats pack that extra 1000 lbs of weight (mojo vs SA). I get that the SA is 1" wider than a Mojo and a little deeper but 1000lbs is a lot of fiber glass. Are the Supra built thicker or something?

    I don’t know about the rest of the line, but the difference in build quality from my 2016 supra to my 2019 Makai is negligible. That big fiberglass bulkhead behind the driver is missing in the Makai, Accounting for some of the weight. Other than that I wouldn’t know what the differences are. The vinyl is the same. The grab handles and the brackets for the sliding seat, All of that appears to be much lighter in Makai. There definitely is more plastic in the dash area. But the level of quality and build in Makai is a new high for Moomba.

    It does everything I need it to do, and in some ways it’s almost a little better. I would say surfing performance of the supra is better out of the box because of its extra weight, and the swell 3.0 system. There are some creature comfort and aesthetic advantages to supra.

    The main answer is, I have cash burning a hole in my pocket at this point. There is no great reason.

    At under 100K, Makai cannot be touched if you want a big boat.

    My opinion!

    I would not be surprised to learn that the foam is lighter, the paneling is later, the seats are definitely not as deep. The electronica components of the dash are a lot less. Makai is a very very solid, huge, and open concept inside.
