The colors that we are looking at:

black/midnite blue

black/midnite blue/silver

midnite blue/silver

black/white

black/tan/white

tan/sangria (maroon)

does anyone have pictures of an all black boat?

Lots of options, any/all help will be appreciated!

Congrats. Very exciting stuff, picking colors. We went round and round and settled on almost exactly what was on the showroom floor because it looked so good.

Onlyinboards has a partial list of Malibu dealers. You can start surfing their sites and see pics of various color combos. http://www.onlyinboards.com/Ski-boat-deale...at-dealers.html

Bakes has about 36 new boats with photos of all of them.

We are working on the coloring.

We are going to have black/light graphite and either moonbeam or white.

Does anyone have any pictures of the light graphite next to moonbeam. We are trying to figure out if they will look ok.

Here is a link to the boat we are comparing to...The boat will either be the same color scheme as this one or the white will be substituted with moonbeam(the top of the deck and bottom of the hull)

Any input??

Black looks great out of the water.

But if you/others are swimming around the boat, a light colored bottom of the boat is a lot safer.

In the water, the dark bottom boat blends in with the water (except in Aruba).

Also, can you say WATER SPOTS??

Consider it......

I wouldn't put LG next to MB. YMMV

As far as water spots, I think we were going to do Midnite Blue or Black, both of which are going to have major waterspots, so that is a toss up!!

And as far as swimming safety, we don't do a lot of swimming in deeper water but, do spend a lot of time at the sandbar. There aren't a lot of underwater divers or swimmers in our group, lots of football, talking, drinking, lounging while drinking...I am not too worried about someone swimming up to my boat from underneath, but that is a very good point!

I've had light colored boats as well as dark, & while the water spots show up easier on dark to the eyes of others, I can always see them. Dark, light, it doesn't matter to me. I gave up on myself a long time ago & realized that I need help. Crazy.gif

Lot's of 3M Marine wax & Babe's Boat Bright helps. :)

WakeGirl is right. I've had both light and dark hulls as well. I currently have a black hull and haven't had any problems with water spots as long as I keep on it with Babe's after every outing.
