View Full Version : Mc 205 Dd

I have been reading here on the forums and am looking at getting a 205 dd. From what I think I have seen best years to go after are the 96 and up, is this correct. I think the pre 205 hulls are pretty much the same as the 190's. If anyone has one for sale please feel free to contact.

Depends on what you are looking for. The pre '96 205 ski wakes are much better than '96 and up. The newer hull is wider and has more storage but in terms of ski wake you must go pre '96. Starting in '94 they had EFI so that is a plus as well.

Some 93s had the LT1, but those are more rare. The ski wake is fine on the 96--200 models, but I agree that the 92--95 models are preferable for slalom.

Thanks alot guys yeah I am looking to replace a sn 2001 for more space and will be used for wakeboarding most of the time. If I had the money would look at the V drive 205 but that will just have to be the next upgrade.

I have a 2000 205 DD and it is a great multi-sport boat. We use it primarily for slalom and surfing but it throws a decent wake for wakeboarding as well. If you are going to mainly use it for wakeboarding I think the 99 and 00 models have a larger storage area in the back and the addition of a ski locker in the center of the boat. Both of these spaces make for excellent spots for ballast. I know for sure that 96-98 does not have the center ski locker, but I am also pretty sure the rear storage isn't quite as big. When I was shopping there wasn't a huge difference in price between the 99-00 and the 96-98.
