Diamond hulls on early/mid 2000s


Recommended Posts

Looking for the unicorn diamond hull in the years 2001-2007/8.  The info in some threads is inconsistent on which models/years have it.  I found an '07 VLX with what looks like a diamond hull but the seller says it's a wake, what do you think?

You need to look closely at the chine (far edge of the rear of the hull) to tell if it's a Diamond Hull or not.  Your photo looks like it's not (compared to the 2nd one below, which I know is a Diamond Hull [2001 Sunsetter 21' VLX). The "lip" helps push the hull up and out of the water at higher speeds, improving the ski wake.  We definitely miss this "unicorn" hull when it comes to skiing.  Our new 2021 21' VLX wake is a beast compared to the 2001.  You can ski, but it's dangerous if you are trying to cut hard and don't have a VERY strong back to pull through that thing with all your might.

Attached is a pic from my 2013 VTX with the diamond hull (V25). The downturn is not as pronounced as the earlier SV23 which I am guessing is in the pic posted above.
