I've read all over BOS and Mastercraft forums about the best slalom wake for used ski boats. Lot's of great information. I am looking to purchase a 2000-2010 year boat soon and am looking at Malibu, Mastercraft and SN. Our lake doesn't have a course so we free ski every weekend. I'm around 30mph long line. We get up early to get the glass and then I spend the rest of the day pulling the kiddos around. Two weeks ago we passed a milestone and my 7 year old started slaloming. I nearly levitated across the water to hug her to death! So, we need an open bow and I need to have it hold it's own in a bit of choppy water considering wake boats are sending tsunami's through the cove these days.
I've been spoiled skiing behind a 2001 Malibu Sunsetter for the past year. Loving the wake compared to our beloved old faithful Dixie ski boat. (Although mad love for the sweet Dixie as she's going strong and a great family boat.)
From what I've read I think I need to look for a Malibu Sunsetter, Malibu Response Lxi or Mastercraft PS. I'm not seeing any Centurion Carbon Pro's for sale. I'm following ski-it-again, boat trader and boats.com and not seeing anything near me.
Knowing that I free ski around 30 mph and love the '01 Sunsetter wake I would love thoughts from ya'll on what I should lean toward. I have always wanted a MC but it's sounding like the Response might be a better boat for my skill level and family situation. Sorry for the novel, please share your expertise! (and if you know if any good boats for sale near NC.)
P.S. Ya'll gave some great advice a couple of years ago when I was breaking in my Radar Lyric and hating it. I LOVE that ski now and am having the time of my life. Thanks for the support!
