08 V Ride vs 08 Wakesetter VTX specs


Recommended Posts

I recently drove a 2008 V Ride and was prepared to buy it but the deal fell apart. I liked the layout, the size of the boat, the height of the seats, storage, etc...Would all that be the same on the VTX? I found one I really like the looks of but it's in Texas and I'm in Ohio so I can't just run over to check it out. Both boats have a wake hull, not the diamond hull, and are very similar in weight so the wake should be about the same.  Any variables I need to consider before buying the VTX? What other differences are there between the two boats?

From what I remember, the VTX is an "upper scale" boat in comparison to the v-ride.  I know that my 07 VTX was much nicer than my buddies 06 V-Ride.

VTX, though shorter, has a wider beam and an overall larger interior.  That Vride is the last of the SV23 Vdrive boats, which were made from 1996 - 2008, in Sunsetter, Wakesetter, Sunscape and Vride names depending on the year, with the Sunscape and 2001 Sunsetter being on a diamond hull.
