    Default Reserved our 2023 Kaiyen build spot

    First-time poster- hopefully first of many.

    Was sold on this model after a visit to a local boat show where I crawled around on a 22 Kaiyen for over an hour. Had a chance to buy that exact boat but the price was the same as building exactly what we want.

    Anywaysss, we got our spot reserved for the '23 build. I'm told options & pricing will be announced in May and the official order can be placed then. Built in July-ish, delivery August or September 2023.

    I'll update when I know more!

    Ive been a Jetski guy for about 10 years. First a 96 seadoo xp then now a 2015 gti130. Pretty fun but the crew now is a wife and two kids (6&14) so the ski is obviously not enough.

    I got the boat bug last year when I was on a friends new Axis. Was a nice boat but the fit and finish was lacking.

    I think well do a little of everything , Im excited to get into wake surfing.

    Congrats, you will love the boat! It will be a long wait but worth it. In the mean time check in on the forum and read up on the boat and the options, you will learn a ton. You will get a good feel for what options you may want and what ones you can do without. There are plenty of threads about "what options should i get" or "is it worth it to get this ...... option.

    Welcome and congrats.

    One of the boat mfrs (?Malibu?) was advertising to lock in a 2023 model at 2022 pricing. I thought that was a cool idea to start getting people to reserve spots.

    Good advice! It's interesting to hear opinions on heaters, surf pipes, audio ,etc.

    Definitely get a surfpipe! So much quieter ride quality. Heater seems like a luxury you can do without, and you can. But, you will be surprised at how much you will use it once you have one. So go for it!

    +1 surfpipe
    +1 on heater
    Probably can build a better sound system aftermarket for similar $$
