LA Boat Show

Recommended Posts

Spent the weekend at the LA show.  Take aways from the show:  sick colors, sick upholstery (love the dark solid color interiors), sick prices.  Pavati Boats has absolutely the most amazing boats anywhere, with a price tag to go with it (26’ goes for $280 ,000.00).  The new Paragon from Nautique, one word, WOW.  Tomcat has a new 2020 F24 special edition, that was the biggest surf boat beast there.  Unfortunately, Malibu and Axis had the most lackluster boats at the show (and I’ve owned Malibu or Axis since 2002).

Tomcat F24 in my opinion is not aesthetically pleasing. The lines and interior on that boat do not flow at all. 

Pavati way too bling/gotti for me. (Even if I could afford. Several people have also told me Pavati struggles with producing a solid wave.)

Paragon I like but would prefer M240.

They had one on their instagram a few weeks ago that looked SO GOOD because it had a basic white exterior.  The lines on the boat are just incredible.  But then the interior looked absolutely awful.  They have a designer that just cant stop adding things.  It's waaaay too much design involved inside.

Why can't I upload a really cool attachment about how disappointed I am that he did not provide a single picture?  I can only insert links and previously uploaded pics.  pics.jpeg.8fd612cffb9a800e19ce40415995a7f1.jpeg

Lack luster as in colors or the way they were optioned?  First time not working the show in a long time, so I did not attend.

Sounds to me like the dealer should have made better choices on what they brought?

Just got back from the Seattle boat show and I have to say agree with what the OP says the Bu line being lackluster. The local dealer did pick some ugly boats and interiors for the show so that didn't help but  I also feel like Malibu is starting to fall behind on the luxury fit and finish of the interiors and helms.  The M240 interior doesn't seem as nice as the Paragon for instance. IMO Nautique, Mastcraft , Supra and Tige all have a nicer "feel" than Bu now.

Paragon had a sold sign on it day 1 of the show. Can’t say the same for the m240. I’m gonna take a more detailed run through next week and grab some pics.
