-I agree with you on Breakz boat. I've given serious consideration to that cement grey theme with the pearl charcoal etc. It's sweet! He screwed up and bought a malibu this year. muahaha! he'll be back.


Love the color but having a hard time accenting on build. I think the interior is hard to build unless you go with gray, and I don’t love the gray interior. I did a mock build with just a touch of seafoam and my wife really liked it. I knew I shouldn’t have showed her.

- PS my 16 year old daughter asked, "Dad, can i get a lesson on backup the trailer and launching this year? Can I take the boat out myself? n o t a c h a n c e s w e e t i e.! -Love dad!


Oh man dangerous! But isn’t that the point? I hope my kids grow up loving this stuff. One of my favorite times last summer was when my son would ask me to take him surfing. Just him and I. Nobody to impress, just wanted to be on the boat. And it was late summer too so there was no one else on the lake so I can let him figure out this driving thing.

After tearing my Achilles the 15 year old got to drive the truck at the ramp last summer. With me in the boat I relied on strangers to try and help him out, lol. I mean he would actually listen to them right?!

mocha and puma go really well with that trust me :D . You need to look at the interior swatches they have at the dealer. colors look nothing like the builder online. I have that color combo and thats why i offered for you to come look at it. make sure you look at the actual color swatches. I wish I would have gone darker on some parts. the Builder make it look super dark when its not really. Who are you buying from?

no, I built this one for you since you were favoring white. White's not my jam but I like the fact that it doesn't show scratches as much as other choices.

Okay this is derailing quickly getting my whole family involved. My son evidently wants purple because purple is “fire” evidently 🤦‍♂️. Not going purple but may be throwing in some color. It’s hard to tell from the builder how all these lines look, I wish I could 3D this thing. Here’s one idea that my wife has approved. Not too concerned bout the colors necessarily, but more curious how the color looks at the back of the boat when it doesn’t continue on the same path. (Swoop color obviously cut by rubrail. Yes I know I can carry that color through but just curious how it looks in person like this). Then also section 1 of color basically is top and interior of boat but it swoops down? Does that look weird in person?

No. Thought my sanger was sold but guy backed out to buy a new Malibu. Nwbs wont give me what I need for it so i either wait to sell it locally or trade it in at extreme boat sports...they will give me what I need on trade. Then I have to drive it 2200 miles but I'd be heading that way to pick up new one anyway. Owner at extreme says no problems buying from him rather than states but not sure how all that would pan out. Not sure what to do at this point.

I purchased from Tony at extremes. Had no issues. Pretty seamless getting boat from CAN to US.
