Have seen heaps comparing G23 to x30 but not have seen much on X25 vs G23 thoughts on that would be great

But the reason I'm writing this post is where I go riding the boat ramps are okay but not great, for instance I have never had any real trouble with launching my X2 but I'm looking to upgrade most likely to a X25 or possibly a g23, but the g23 worries me because it sits so high on the trailer does this mean you need a much deeper boat ramp? Also what are the x2 vs x25 launching wise similar quality of ramp needed?

I came from a 23 foot Malibu to the X2. I may have backed another 2 feet further down the same ramp to launch the longer boat.

The way the 25 sits on the trailer with the deep vee you need to get into quite a bit of water to get it off ramp. I don't imagine the G is any different.

I need both my wells buried to get my 25 off. There is a lake near me that I can't even use because there isn't a suitable ramp.

Do you think an x2 would be launch able where your 25 isn't?

I have not used an X-2 for a direct comparison, but my X-25 does need a slightly deeper water for launch and retrieve than my X-15 did, which is a similar length and weight to an X-2. Obviously not something I ever measured, but I'd guess I put 2" more water above the fenders on my X-25 than I did my X-15 to end up with the same "degree of difficulty".

Hope that helps.

Why are you comparing a 21 ft. x25 to a 23 ft. g23?

Because I don't like 210's and there is no G21 that I'm aware of, so therefore comparing the options available.

Great thanks for the input, so it is a bit different but not a massive difference thanks

There is now a G21 in the works. Best guess surf expo. They redesigned the 210 for 2014. they are making it more of a fanily multisport friendly interior with the new seating leaving the door open for the G21 to fill the core wakeboat segment. 230 got a revamped hull and top deck for 2014.


Lots going on with all mfg's. supra Moomba as well. Tons of new models across the board. It's crazy how this has taken off, along with the prices for 22ft wakeboats.

There is a g21 coming this year for them and why not an x35 with a g23.

Is the G21 confirmed? And what are your predictions on it do you think it will be a good boat? Pricing etc?

Everyone says the g21 is coming and pricing wise... not sure but it will probably be higher up there.
