2022 A24

Crew,

finally pulling the trigger on a new boat.  Once build slots open up I’ll be signing up for an A24.  Any must have options from those that have 2021s?  Definitely going M6 or greater.  

Coming from a 2008 23LSV.  Nothing but good to say about that boat.  Just ready for something a little bigger and some of the functionality of a newer boat.  

Thanks!

Agree with @ahopkinsVTX on the power wedge!  A buddy of mine bought a 21 w/ auto set wedge and wave was good, but power wedge would have allowed more options to shape the wave.  I wouldn't buy one without it unless it was a screaming deal.  Not many, if any, of those out there in this market.  Congrats!

power seat? Was not an option for 2021?

Auto Set Wedge is a feature of Power Wedge, I believe you mean the floating wedge? The one where you drop it manually and raise it manually?

M6 with 17" prop should be plenty for most people. 

I am a big fan of hydraulic steering in the axis line up, but the 17" propped boats dont suffer as much, but might be something to consider. 

Chillax Seats.

Yes, I meant floating wedge.  Thanks for the correction

Shock Assist Tower if you have to lower the tower at all, especially if you have 2 sets of Tower speaker. 

You are making a great choice, just pulled our 2021 out of the garage and put it on the lift. Forgot how awesome it is over the winter.

Has the dealer commented on any changes to the '22 from the '21?

Any information on cost changes? Also curious as @Five Cent Worth what changes in boat? I have a 2021 on order...

I have heard cost increase between 10-13%.  I can't validate that, it's just what I heard.

I think the specs for the 2022 will be released to the public next week. I think they are sending stuff to the dealers today. Hoping to hear some stuff leak out.

Definitely do transom and bow steps on your trailer! We went full stereo delete and did a custom stereo build as well as custom GatorStep.

Power wedge is a non-negotiable 🤙 even on the ‘08 LSV, it’s a game changer.  

 

M6 + 17” prop 👍 thanks.  

 

What about stereo 2 vs delete with custom stereo.  Is a custom build that big of difference?  And what’s the ballpark cost delta?  

 

Thanks y’all!!!

Maybe It's just me, but I did SP3 with just 1 set of rev 10's on my 21 A24 and I think it sounds pretty good.  Now, I haven't ridden behind the boat yet so am not sure how the Rev 10's are powered, but the system gets loud inside the boat and is pretty clean.  If I looked at the MSRP with the sheet I have and add all those up it comes out to be $5,004 total.  It looks like SP2 with Icon 8's come out to be $3,467.  Not sure what the amp differences are between the 2, but for the $1,537 upcharge you get 1 set of Rev 10's and a 12" sub instead of a 10" sub and 8" icon speakers.  I don't think that's a bad surcharge for the price.  

I also went m6, but that was mainly due to me wanting power for wakeboarding.  Honestly if you don't wakeboard with 1,000 lbs sacs in the rear you could be fine in an m5 @ elevation.  I've never experienced a boat not get to speed surfing, even with the smallest of engines.  Again, just my opinion.  I demoed one and was impressed with hole shot and how it rode.  That was one with the free floating wedge - so no lift mode to help get on plane.  I think the 17" prop helps a ton in that arena.  

I also agree about transom and bow steps on trailer if you tow. . . if it sits on a lift save your money.  I'm also big on the lean back seats in the back and chilax seats.  I wouldn't buy a boat without those, but a lot of people don't use the lean backs so, that's again personal preference.   I also did the factory soft grip flooring and the deck trac.  Figure if you're getting x% off the boat it saves you time from doing gator step or whatever. 

Pretty much my boat is fully loaded and I got those options because they were important to me.  If you have any other questions don't hesitate to reach out.
