I had an 86 model. Loved that boat. Awesome ski boat. Can't go wrong with a boat like that. Nice to see one without a tower mounted on it!!

Might as well have a tower. That bimini looks awful tall, doesn't it? Or is it just me??

I have an 86' and love it. I've owned an 86, 87, and 89. The 89 was my favorite do to the engine but the graphics and boat lay out of the 86 is awesome. Example wrap around pass. seat. If you are buying take your time look at the boat close up. ask questions. No question is a dumb one. and if the owner thinks so then it's not the boat for you!

The '86 is all fiberglass
Could be the pic boat, color for sure, not sure about the safe-t-top

Nice boat and wake but a lot of spray at shorter line lengths.
