I was quoted less than $5k for the aftermarket (non-Malibu branded) stern turn. It was DIY install and I opted to wait until I had another season on it. I doubt my same deal will be honored now but I might try to swing it for this winter...
PNW people anyone have stereo installer recommendations. I think I am going to go with Divine Marine, his work looks great and has a pretty good reputation.
Just ordered a 2021 A22 with a February/March build date.
Love my stern turn. Makes docking, trailering, working with beginner surfers, and dealing with wind much easier. The price tag is on par with all the other overpriced add ons on these boats.
Check the rudder to see if it is tunable or if someone took a grinder to it. I tune my rudder so there is enough torque to make it track straight but light enough so you can still feel the skier input. By the way, if its neutral and the steering wheel does not crank when you let go of it at speed it is not set up properly for skiing.
Direct drive rule #1 never take your hand off the wheel for this reason. They are driving just as they should. I believe it has to do with prop torque against the rudder. But, this in turn makes the boat able to drive a very straight line for slalom skiing accuracy.
