Sunsetter VLX

Recommended Posts

I have been considering a 98 sunsetter vlx. Is this a good boat, any known problems? Also how is the wake? The boat I have been looking at is $25000. Is this a good price for this year model?

In general it is a good boat, but there are a lot of variables such as:

How many hours?

What kind of maintenance was done?

Condition of the vinyl?

Does it have a wedge, tower, audio, bimini, racks, etc.?

What kind of trailer and what is the condition?

Was it used in salt water?

The hull that year is the same SV23 hull that was used on the wakesetter through 2004, so if you are looking for a wakeboarding wake then it is good for that purpose, but will not give a terribly satisfactory slalom wake.

Depending on the above info, I would say that the price is high.

The boat is in good shape it has 450 hrs. Here is the description:

1998 Malibu Sunsetter VLX 325 HP MPI fuel injection Monsoon, Folding

Skylon Tower, board rack, CD Stereo, Depth meter. Includes tandem axle Dorsey trailer with brakes.

The boat has always been stored indoors. All vinyl looks great.

Sounds pretty good, but i would still say the price is a bit high. Probably I would price it in the 20 to 22K range assuming all is in good shape. A nice cover like one from Rankin would be a nice addition. That is not too many hours and says that at least it was used and probably maintained.
