My buddy who lives on Mars sent me a pic of his new boat.

Obviously joking, but they sure do have some space age designs down under!

    Rod,
    What type of boat is that? I like the wrap windshield.

    Nice! I don't know why "tournament" ski boats have to look like water tractors. I LOVE the Naugtique 200, but the interior looks like they upholstered a picnic bench.

    Looks like it could be a good place to start a "bare bones ski boat". Wonder how it would sell here in North America....

    Looks like a really spruced up Gekko GTR22 with the support behind the windshield and the embedded ski platform. The engine box also looks to be high in the boat the same as the Gekko.
    Not sure I know what I am doing. The boat goes I follow. Trying to perfect the deep water start. Squirrel!

    If it's quality construction, ZO, and under 25K out the door w/ trailer sign me up. Anyone looking for a 96' Prostar?

    It looks like they have a 20ft open bow walk through as their top of the line ski boat for 60k but I think thats Australian Ks.

    FYI 60K AUD = $63,750 USD at current exchange rates. Not exactly entry level money.

    The model pictured above is the Rolco Nirvana. Base price 29,990 AUD ($31,865 USD) which I think includes the trailer. Looks like with much in the way of options you could be at $35K USD pretty quickly. Add a few thousand mnore to ship one over... http://www.rolcoboats.com.au/pdf/Nirvana Pricelist Jan 2012.pdf

    I noticed that one of the options is a forward, neutral and reverse trans. Does it come without a tranny?
