Just looking for insight into this model/year :

 

Port/STB Ballast Tanks, Attitude Adjustment Plate, Snap-Out Carpet, Bow& Cockpit Covers, Pop-Up Bow Light, Scorpion 350MPI engine, and custom Boatmate trailer - 345 hours

Asking $43,500

 

Haven't laked tested yet - I am a little worried about the noise - want to be able to cruise with music along with wakeboard/surf

 

On average the family is "goofy"

Looks nice. Why are you worried about noise?

It doesn't appear to have sideswipe from the first pic.

Troy - from reading other forum entries I got the impression that sideswipe was a standard part of the boat - but I guess not - Thanks!

You can see the exhaust is clearly coming out the back so no sideswipe....if you want it even quiter, while reducing carbon monoxide emissions, you can get an FAE for $400 or so that everyone seems to love. Does it have Perfect Pass? Good looking boat!

Doesn't have perfect pass mentioned in the online listing (relatively new listing so short list for now) - but here is a pic of the dash which makes it look like it does (but I'm not an expert).

Nope. That's standard transom exhaust. That's a good thing in my opinion. You can also add a Fresh Air Exhaust (FAE) to reduce noise further.

Edit:

Bcollins beat me to it.

Looks like a nice boat! From what I see seems like it does not have many options on it like stereo or auto trim tab....depending on hours you can probably work the price.

It doesn't have perfect pass either. Hossman, where are you located?

Thanks for the things to look for/ask about when I get a chance to go in and see it.

Doesn't appear to have any ballast either. Or at least the switches on the right side console appear mostly empty.

Other consideration is a 2009 Falcon V Air Warrior with 105 hours and 300hp merc listed for $39k

 

Has perfect pass and says it has port/stbd ballast tanks (the Enzo said that too)

 

My sense is that this one would require more extras and work to get a good surf wake

 

This one would be cheaper though

My vote is for the enzo, it looks like a nice boat and color wise and model i think the resale would hold up better. i would say $ 42,000 if you have to pay full taxes on purchase. no stereo is a minus but maybe it just needs an amp and a couple tower speakers. take your time for sure, i have made the mistake of jumping the gun before, fortunately i got out of it but it was a huge waste of time. usually if you go with your gut feeling it will work out. good luck.

I'd go Enzo for sure. The perfect pass, ballast, stereo, etc. can be added. I think you can get a better price though...

There's some Enzo 240s out there in that $ range with more options.

Got to see it - has a stereo with aux inputs, just no tower speakers - no perfect pass/cruise control - and just the factory ballast - lake test it on Monday - considering going with 43,500 if they add perfect pass

Nice boat. I vote the Enzo. That one has the gladiator tower also and a great color scheme. Does it have a factory Bimini and a cover? Considering summer time, and if you blue book that boat wholesale will be higher than 43k sure

Has the cover but not the bimini - I'm ok with that - Thanks for your insight!

hossman.....for what it’s worth.....I had a 2008 Falcon V and upgraded to my 233 last year. In terms of the size of the boats from the cockpit back the 230 and the Falcon V are pretty much the same...the 230 will have a larger bow area. The Falcon is a huge 21 ft boat...in fact I did not really consider a 230 because I wanted a bigger boat and the cockpit size was virtually the same on the Falcon and the 230. In my opinion the Falcon V is a very good all around boat...it has a flatter hull design... and could be called a crossover as it does many things well.....if you slam it it will surf pretty darn well but will not give you an Enzo wave for sure. The Enzo will also have a much better ride in chop....this is very noticeable. We surf almost exclusively and wanted a bigger boat so the 233 was the right call for us. I really liked my Falcon V allot...it is a great all around boat but it is not an Enzo.

Thanks Bongo (name of one of our cats - who does not like the new yellow lab we just got) - I am leaning Enzo right now, will likely surf more than wakeboard so want the nice wave

One thing I noticed on the boat - the guy I talked to said he did not thing the bow had a cushion in the middle to make it all flat -should the boat have come with that?
