New Response

I'm not sure if it is ok to talk about other manufacturers boats, but is that going to fly? The number of ProStar similarities is pretty amazing. They could have at least tried to differentiate a bit with some easy stuff like selecting a different steering wheel. I understand there is only so much you can do with layouts and such, but wow.

That dash and wheel are pretty darn close to an MC in style.

Still holds the BU response look with nice style update. The carpet on the engine cover needs to go if it's gonna be a seadeck floor . You can't have both.

I will say the first thing that popped to me was the wake. I have t spent any time behind the newly designed prostar , but do spend quite a bit of time in a response lxi. That wake in the video looks magical. It's flat as hell.

It will be fun to see at the boat show. I'm sure it will be a nice boat and was a needed refresh.

Wow! Looks like they pulled a prostar in the shop and tried to duplicate it. Only real difference I see is the bow. Malibu has some kind of reverse pickle fork thing? For some weird reason, it looks like a frog to me. Lol. That and you either get closed or open bow..... You get both with a prostar!

For those of us that are okay with towers, this one looks like a better looking option. Nicer looking and more functional. Hard to tell without a full boat shot, or it riding down the lake.

This is a prostar replica. I will say that the tower looks pretty sweet but it looks like an axis tower.
