Hi there , I'm new to the site, I'm looking at a used Flightcraft that I am told is a 2000 model, can anyone verify what was the last year that they made this boat ? , also how can I identify it as a 2000 model ? , serial number ? , did they make many changes to this boat over the years ? I am considering buying this boat as a replacment for a J-craft 17' , I would use it mostly for slalom but it would have to fill in as a wakeboard boat too. , thanks for your help , Rick in Otwa Canada.

I believe 2001 was the last year they were made. I'd jump all over that if I had an extra 16k laying around.

Yep.. Flightcraft was originally the brand. there were several models that lead up to the 'malibu flightcraft'. These included the 16 and 18ft XL and XLT models, which came in both inboard and outboard options. These are without doubt the aussie classic ski boats which were as good as anything in the world at the time. My understanding is that when malibu australia came to be, flightcraft became/sold out/died to become malibu aus. The early responses and sporties? in the early 90s were actually flightcraft branded boats. the flightcraft that you guys all know was an evolution of the 18XLT, a real barefoot boat.

yep, flightcraft was originally made by Dave Telling, who now owns Wakecraft/

Flightcraft had arguably the best Footn boat, I wanted one but they were small and too purpose built. I had to settle for a SS cause we had small kids but I am happy now.
