better storage and gatorstep underneath everything would be a nice touch.

I would like to play with the auto wake. No one sits still in my boat so the wave changes a little twice every beer refill or if a girls goes from front to back many times chasing the sun tan!!! 😂

The touch screen scares me. I keep my boats too long and would be the guy with issues out of warranty and would be buying a multi thousand $ screen out of pocket were it should or could be for cool upgrades!

Agree 100%, but a big ass cooler in the floor, back seat that converts to rear facing and hinged seats, faster filling plug and play, garbage and recycle containers are on my list as upgrades.

tbag, my man, is spot on. Im really not a fan of touch screen BS. destined for failure that will take the boat off the water for untold days or weeks, but I understand why this boat would need it given the price point. I would add that a deeper walk through that incorporates some sort of filler cushion is high on my list and arm rests in the bow seating.

Sounds like they settled on a 24 ft length. Kinda wanted to see a 25, to compete with the flagships of the big 3.

 

Oh, almost forgot. THIS THREAD IS USELESS WITHOUT PICS.

OK, I'll add to the xmas list,,, Since I think we are comparing this boat to a G2x, MB needs to:

 

1 - ditch the 2-aerator pumps for 4- reversible ballast kings w/timers

2 - redesign the engine compartment so we can get to things easier

3 - 17" prop and 2:1 tranny

4 - 575 raptor or switch to PCM and H6

5 - sound deaden the engine area - thicker walls = more weight, less sound, and less liquid ballast. 

6 - hinge all the seats

7 - revise the surf/wakeboard controller

8 - clam shell board racks

 

 

That would be worth $120K :)

I think the price is pretty good considering the 575 cost as much as a toyota camry to upgrade.

I may be wrong, but G23 comes in quite a bit higher. This seems more like Malibu LSV 23 / centurion Ri237 pricing territory. Probably Supra, too. Still - lots of tech and gadgets on those boats.

The owner of the company  i work for paid 175k for his 2018 g25 loaded, I would guess the g23 around 150 ish

130k is almost twice as much as what I paid for 16 b52 23. Little disappointing

Last time I checked dual screens aren't 35-45k more. I tell customers if they took any of the big 3 boats and pulled all the parts out and put them on the ground and did the same with MB and compared them you would realize how much the big 3 are profiting on the consumer. We will always stay below the Big 3 and keep the boat customer friendly

I’ve read this a few times and I honestly I’m not quite sure what it means. I currently own a skiers choice product, which comparatively is actually price quite a bit below this proposal (still 5 figures). 24.5 feet long.

It really does amaze me how much wake boats have increased in price over the years. When I started wakeboarding in the early 2000's an X-star was $45k msrp. Now it's 4x that! Obviously there are way more features, but it hard to see those features equaling $135k. But people keep buying them and demanding more so upward we go.

MSRP is out of control across all brands. We just put in a order for our new boat and almost hit 175k without power tower, underwater lights and stereo
