You should avoid the TriStar for other reasons: it just isn't big enough for what you want to do, and it lacks storage. If you put passengers in the front you're going to take some water over the bow. I wouldn't consider the TriStar a wakeboard boat.

Having said that, I love mine!
I wouldn't rule out the tristar but would recommend the 205 over it. The tristar 220 is rare, but is a 22 foot bow rider with integral platform which means it is essentially a bit under 21 feet. Tristar 190 is tight, I had one. But open bow helps
