I am looking for a new boat but cannot decide which one. As i am living in Denmark its going to be used in the ocean and therefore always in salt water. For this reason we would love to go for an outboard engine as it can easily be trimmed out at the docks. Mainly we are using the boat for skiing and the smallest wake possible is by far one of the most important criteria. As we are on the ocean the conditions are rarely ideal and choppy water happens quickly hence a dedicated ski boat does not fit our needs.
I have been looking lately at the Glastron 180 GTS or the 180 GTD. Which seems like they fill all the boxes, except I cannot find any real information about the wake it leaves behind. I am leaning towards the GTD deckboat as it most likely might have a better hull for a small wake.
Does anyone have experience with these boats and know if the wake is good for slalom skiing?
Feel free to add any additional information or come with other alternatives. Quite a limited amount of used boats are available here for skiing, i have also been taking a look at the outboard MC NXT20 does anyone know how its compares to the glastron or how it is for skiing?
Thx for any advice!
