    • Lol. Interesting it’s still available at this price!  One thing you should understand is asking price and sales prices are far different in most cases but tell yourself whatever you want to make yourself feel better.

      Not sure I agree.  Assuming standard discounts in 2017 were at least 25% off sticker (I was able to get 35% off in 2018) the prior owner paid around 128,000 for the boat.   Thus they only paid around $8500/year or $700/month use it a ton. No way that boat is selling anywhere near 140,000.   I think you got a fair deal but in no way “stole it”. Lol 

      Yep, you are so correct.  https://www.launchwatersports.com/default.asp?page=xPreOwnedInventoryDetail&id=10985404&p=1&s=Year&d=D&t=preowned&fr=xPreOwnedInventory

      Hearing you don't have issues now makes me a little bummed.  I wonder if other 220 owners have this problem.  I figured it was a known issue since Nautique made an exhaust bypass to avoid experiencing what I am.  I bet if we start a thread on the general topic page, we would get better info.  I have not addressed this with my deal yet, FYI.

      I would definitely like to hear more feedback from other owners about this as I have mine on order and absolutely need this option getting into my dock.  First time to order something like this but I can't imagine Malibu not fixing such an expensive option, especially because this is the main direction the option was meant to counter due to prop rotation.

      Hi all - looking at two boats and struggling with this decision.  Hoping for some input from people with more experience comparing these than I have.  

      The M240 has about 100hrs and comes with the LT4, GX Tower, Stern-turn, and a trailer whereas the M220 is new, but has the M6, standard tower, and no thruster or trailer.  

      I only trailer 1-2x per year and I never lower the tower so these options aren't a requirement.  We like both color schemes, but the the M220 appears to be the safer play from a resale perspective.  M240 is out of state and M220 is at my local dealer.

      Price difference between the deals currently is about $30k, which is not an insignificant sum to us, but wondering if the bigger boat with more options and potentially better wave would justify the difference for most of you?  Is there a large delta in resale value between these two models?  Any other decision criteria I should be weighing?  

      You absolutely need a trailer.  What did you end up getting?

      t least 33 homes on the lake own wakeboats, and many other visiting wakeboats use the lake on a daily basis when the weather allows. Since wakeboats stir up the sediment on the bottoms of shallow lakes, our lake quality is a disaster. Homes are losing their shorelines and trees because of the destructiveness of the wakes. Even rip rap is giving way under the stress. 

      Activist movement is growing around the state, the country, and the world to restrict wakeboats to lakes that are wide enough and deep enough to accommodate their wakes. I know the boating industry is throwing tens of millions of dollars to save their jobs, but I believe restrictions are coming. Science usually wins out, although it may take time and persistence. 


      Hell of a first .....   and only post..... :tease2:
