    Default 2021 SL owners?

    Hey there all…. As the season wraps up here and I dash my dreams of a 2024 SL to replace the Makai (sticker shock), I may have an opportunity to jump into a low hour 2021 SL450….

    I know a bunch about the 2021SL physically, but is there anything about the tech/surf systems, anything that jumps out as an ‘avoid’ for this boat ?

    I can speak as a searcher but not an owner.

    I was shopping 2021 Supras earlier and it seems like tech from 2021 to 2023 is the same. Only problems were heater pump leaks, ethernet cables for the screens to controllers, limited thruster controller faults. I was seriously looking and if interest rates wouldn't have jumped I would have a 2021 I'm my garage.

    Good luck in your search. I know Georgia dealers had quite a few used if you want to make the trip from BC.

    2021 is the Gen 1 SL but it's still got everything good about a Supra. It was introduced in 2018 and the first Supra with true sun floor ballast and awesome storage.

    Surf and wake tech is latest greatest too, if the price is right, don't hesitate.

    Thanks gents….

    This one hits my buttons for colors as well, but I am scouring the net for others to comp… the fact it is a 21 with under 70 hours is a big plus, I dont even think the Bimini has even been unfolded!

    Now, to list up the Makai to see if I can make the difference be what I ‘want’ it to be lol

    I know several people with 21 SLs. Nothing major from them.

    I’m not sure if this was the first year of the captains chair. I recall some mounting issues if so, support for the chair.

    Lots of big changes from my 2018 - chill seats, screens, flip seats, trans package. After the 21s the prices started really heading north.

    Thanks, the 21 does have the new captains chair, I will inspect and try out all functions for any issues…. Does anyone know if the 21’s have the new ratio trans (1.76?)?

    There was no loss of seat functions, the bolts could come loose and wobble, new hardware kits prevents that.

    The 21's have the 1.76 trans, Supra added that in 2020.

    The tag on my trans says 1.7, because somewhere is 21-22 they changed from 1.76 to 1.7

    21 was the first year for new captains chair, there was a mounting hardware recall for it. Easy fix.

    Also first year for new heated steering wheel and controls, although early builds didn't have it yet.

    Gatorstep was also new and the windshield changed.

    First year for thruster option, I recall pricing a 20 Vs a 21 and it was $5k more, but mid year the Covid supply chain issues hit hard and I think post Feb builds saw an added price increase.

    ^^ This ^^

    Being able to spin a bigger prop with the new trans makes a difference. Most of my friends with the SA or SL have the 400 motor around Knoxville.
