Question Brendella Info

Hi Everybody,
My understanding (that could be wrong) is that Mike Brendel basically copied everything MC when he made Brendella & MB. So the question is then, what MC hull would this boat be comparable to? I'm looking for a ski boat first and a wake boat second, and it seems like this hull would be a bit big for me, unless, it is the same hull as the 92-95 prostar 205? Have any of you ever skied behind a brendella like this open bow?

Definitely not a PS205 there--no chines under the hull and too much bow drop in the front.

Almost looks like a Supra or Tige, but can't find an exact match.

I have heard the rumor on numerous occasions that in the late 80s, MB was using something very close to, if not identical to, an 85 MC hull. I have also heard a rumor that the mid 90s MBs were using something very similar to, if not identical to, an early 90s Pro Star hull. I have never heard of any across the board duplication by Brendella or MB, however.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I can solve your problem. DO NOT buy "a possible" copy of a MasterCraft. Buy a MasterCraft, if that is what you really want.

The rumor is the first Ski Brendella, shortline comp, was a splash of the 85 s&s. That model you are looking at is not .

It's not a copy of anything, it is just a Brendella!

Price won't be "that" different.
