One for any Aussies out there.
We’re Just getting back into skiing as the kids get old enough and are in the market of boat.
I’ve been a bit overwhelmed with the choices to make so am hoping you guys can help?
What I’ve found is that’s for around the same money I can get, roughly is:
1- 10 year old Malibu response or Tige 21
2- 15 year old MC 205 or Nautique
3- Brand new Aussie made boat like a Lewis Moomba
Or for a bit more a brand new Matrix Super sport that is all fibreglass (as in no timber stringers or ply wood seat bases like a lot of the other Aussie boats).
As I said, we are just getting back into, but I would like something with a respectable slalom wake.
But I’d say in order of usage:
Kids skiing, tubing, kneeboarding
Open water slalom
Recreational slalom (course)
Maybe after all that I’ll let a wakeboarder hook up!
So my question is, am I better with a used US boat or a new Aussie made boat?
A bonus would be if anyone has slalomed behind a Matrix Super Sport or Sorrento.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
