View Full Version : MB B52 21 foot ski wake

04-29-2011, 12:52 PM
I posted earlier that my brother is hot on the trail of a V-drive boat that skis well. He is looking for a new boat around 50K. What he has come up with is the 2011 MB B52 21 foot wide body for 52K. We are going on a test drive on Tuesday. He will be going from a 21 foot Chris Craft to this. Has anyone skied this boat? If so, any coments about the ski wake and the boat in general?

I know this is not an MB site, just looking for any input from those that might know this boat.

post your question on wakeworld, several MB owners there.

DJ, where are you test driving? A lot of value in MB's. Really good stock wakeboarding and surfing wake. Rumor is you can get them with a wakeplate now. A 21 ft Tomcat or The Wide Body isn't going to have the best ski wake. With the wakeplate it might be OK for recreational skiing. Might be better/softer than the Chris Craft, though.

Considering MB TWB's are reported to have some of the biggest/best wakeboard and surf wakes I'd dobut that it skis well at all, but yeah, ask in Wakeworld.
