Ski Boat Sales Online
You can t beat a nice hot summer s day with the spray in your face and a fast boat beneath your feet unless it s a fast pair of skis under your feet Water skiing has been around for over 80 years now since Ralph Samuelson of Minnesota first tried a pair of snow skis and a rope attached to a boat.
As with most sports the right type of equipment does make a difference and with water skiing a good ski boat makes a big difference. A good ski boat should have small wake and have nippy maneuverability and turning capability and having the right size ski boat is important. Some popular ski boat ranges are equiped with an inboard engine rather than outboard and while many people ski using general purpose deck boats the best are purpose built.
There are many popular ski boat ranges in Aussie and since there are so many of them and most are great ski boats. It would be easier to single out those slightly less fabulous than the rest than to pick the best and you can t go by price. Australia is a country perfectly situated for water skiing and they know how to build the right boats to do the job.
If we were to name a few then in amoungst the more favoured ski boats for sale in Australia One of the major ski boat manufacturers in the world Lewis is favoured by many. Anywhere there is water skiing you will find a Lewis boat built by Australia’s oldest manufacturer.
Although the original Lewis boats were made of wood they are now fiberglass that provides a strong but very lightweight boat. Even though the internal stringer system is generally wood Lewis boats are are fast and have the maneuverability need for a great ski. The 2280 and Revolution are typical of the Lewis range with their zippy Mercruiser engines that produce a small wake at speed for a smooth slalom ride and nice big wake for wakeboarding at lower speeds.
Their well designed Wake towers can be dressed with speakers lights and board racks. However the trade off in having a dual purpose ski and wake boat is that you can get a bumpier ride on skis. A dual purpose ski boat can have both advantages and dis advantages but if you enjoy both sports then you should get enough performance from a great ski boat and wakeboarding vessel to satisfy you. If it s championship performance you are seeking then purchase a specialist boat.
Bayliner is another boat builder with very popular skiboats in the 16 22 foot range The Bowrider 205 is typical of a great ski boatwith a 220 hp Mercuiser engine. This boat comes with space under floor for ski storage and great entertainment from its stereo controller that allows you fit a CD player iPod or MP3 player. Bayliner know how to build boats they should having been in the business over 45 years. These boats are quality and respond to the helm perfectly. With rapid acceleration they can also turn on a cent piece and are perfect for skiing.
If it s more power you are looking for try a Crownline. These boats for sale exude class and quality and the Crownline Bowrider 240LS is great for skiing. You can choose your colour and your Mercedes engine up to a maximum 425 HP. With many great options including an entertainment system sink and shower it makes it a great fun throughout your ski boating day. If you prefer a deckboat to a bowrider for your skiing then the Crownline 252 EX has much the same appointments with the same engine and a Sony Marine stereo system as standard. Crownline may be a little more expensive but you pay for quality and one of the best ski boats for sale. Again though they are multi purpose and while very popular and great for the recreational skier they are not specialist ski boats.
For a championship specialist ski boat then Skicraft might be the one you are looking for. Skicraft based in Bayswater have been making championship skiboats since 1969 offering very reliable turning and maneuverability but is also very safe. From the sleek and fast 202 to the new V Drive eXV Skicraft are true championship boats. The ExV is an upgrade of the popular eX2 with a good weight design to make it easy to change from wakeboarding to skiing.
Skicraft generally build specialist boats and the V Drive is generally better for wakeboarding. However wakeboarding boats can be expensive because they have to be heavier to generate a good wake. Skicraft have developed a wake control technology whereby you can adjust the size of the wake to switch between skiing and wakeboarding. With all these features they still maintain a price below that of a purpose made boat for wakeboarding.
However the boat that everybody is waiting to see is the new Mustang. Since being taken over by Standard Bank Mustang is back and is going from strength to strength. Their latest boat still to be unveiled is the Mustang 2008 430 Sports Coupe. How good this will be for skiing we don t know but it sports Volvo IPS 600 engines as standard with 418 HP each so is going to be fast enough.
These are among the more popular skiboat ranges in Australia and with so many more ski boats for sale that we have missed it might pay to visit a great website Boats To Buy for both new and used boats for sale online.
