Friend Looking - Moomba Mondo VS NXT VS AXIS

Gents

A buddy need some help; he's looking for a surf boat; I would say ease of use is important; he has to launch and trailer every day he uses it.

Surf 80%, everything else 20%.

He's being pushed into the Moomba from the dealer; saying it's a better deal. They also sell MC and I was surprised they never even brought up an NXT. He was told they start at $99,000CND, he would want Gen2.

Thoughts on NXT with Gen2 over AXIS (which I know nothing about), and Moomba Mondo (which I also know nothing about)- of course other than they are not MC products... :0

He is price sensitive, around $70-$80,000 CND. But I sense he can go higher need be.

he really need to decide what aspects are the most important to HIM
The NXT is stripped compared to its competition.
HOWEVER, what you do get is very Hi quality materials and build, just short on features.
The Momba is going to give more bang for the Buck..as with the AXIS...
he needs to get in each open and close hatches, place with knobs and features.
If he has had a boat before , he will not be moved by any talk from the Dealer other than Final price.

Lastly, test or do extensive search on the Surf Wave potential...thats a Big deal to him.

Axis tower is a pain to fold down by yourself if he's trailering and storing in the garage.

The old one, yes. The new one, very simple to do solo.

My bad, I almost put in a comment that I thought they changed the tower some and I didn't know what all changed, but then I got lazy and didn't.

Totally different feel in the boats. The Axis has the most polarizing looks. They really focus on the wake performance. The A20 is a good new hull with useful space.

The Moomba is going to look fancier than the Axis or the NXT. I haven't been on the water in one...

The NXT has a good use of space and quality components. No bling. I think it is actually an affordable crossover--decent ski wake plus wake sports. With extra ballast and all the stuff you want, it will cost more than the Axis or Moomba.

Personally I like the Axis or NXT. but that's just my opinion.

I closer comparison to the NXT would be the Moomba Craze I think.

The NXT is a nice boat and not as stripped as some seem to think and has a nice interior than the Moomba and Axis.

The Axis surf gate is probably a little better than the Gen2, but not a lot. The Axis and Moomba were about $10k or more higher than the NXT... at least at local dealers.

You can negotiate a nice NXT22 for mid 70's.
