Vtx Weight Increase

Recommended Posts

J_Beast

Hey all,

I'm about to purchase a 2012 VTX, but have a last minute research question. In the brochure its listing the dry weight as 3500 lbs. That's up from the 3300 lbs of prior years. The web site, on the other hand still lists weight at 3300. Did the weight really increase? If so, can anyone comment on whether it has impacted the ski wake with the diamond hull?

Pretty sure nothing has really changed, so 3300 lbs. should be the correct number (the 20 LSV is listed at 3200 lbs.,

the difference primarily being the weight of the tower).

It looks like they have changed construction of the floor and topdeck if you want snap out carpet.?!? Maybe that has something to do with it?

Thanks for the feedback. My dealer couldn't confirm the weight gain. But he also was thinking that the floor construction might be responsible. Another possibility is that I believe the base engine is now the Monsoon 350 replacing the LCR. However I thought most components were the same between the two. And I know the fuel tank changed, but i think the capacity is actually smaller. Regardless, I'll soon find out if the weight or wake changed. My new boat should be arriving mid April!
