Debating my first boat

Recommended Posts

Dhoffman

Debating a used 2013 21VLX with 300 hours or a new Moomba Craz.  This is our first boat, and the prices are mid $40s vs. $60s respectively.  As this is our first boat, I am torn on what is best.  Our plan is for wake/surf/ski/tube etc.  

Any opinions are appreciated.  Thanks.

Can you easily lake test them ?  Any experience with either of the boats? Friends have them or anything?

That trailer doesn't look right, is it included?   I would totally take the Malibu, the moomba feels so cheap.

Florida is one of those places that owners opt out of the trailer option. I've heard good things of Tommy's been in the market a while. Definite Bu over Moomba for quality. Crawl around it thoroughly and check out the gel coat..

Yeah.  We are moving to the lake. Boat won't ever come out of the lake or off the lift (hopefully).

Lift is good, not just for gel coat but deters critters in those parts...

No trailer...

And likely a salt boat, which really hurts the value.  The newest Moombas are getting nicer but they are no Malibu.

that is a steal if you can get it for 45k.....i'm not familiar with Florida boat prices but here in CA that boat, even without a trailer, would be in the 60's

Unless it's been ran in salt water for 4 years.  If it's verifiable as fresh water - jump on it.
