  1. Good to hear a positive experience and your thought process on making the switch. I too have been somewhat contemplating this same switch, problem is I love the look, extra depth of the ZS, and in reality probably don’t need that extra 10” or people capacity. Did you get into detail on major differences of the EZ-V and Tapered-V hull and the difference in waves at all? Like why did they dump the staggered chines and downward angle on outer edge of hull? I’ve done a little digging, but still want more solid answers on this, it’s a major hang up in my decision making ability lol (even though I’m sure the difference is barely noticeable). Did you upgrade to the 450 because of elevation or just the size of the boat? I’ve also decided 450 at 3000’ elevation. Anyways, the white silver is a classic look, never gets old, that will be a sweet unit!
  2. Looking for someone who has access to and could grab a few measurements for me. I’m trying to determine if the morryde cre3000 rubber equalizers will fit the leaf sprung boatmate trailer. https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Leaf-Spring-Suspension/MORryde/MR87ZR.html For 2022, torsion springs are an option, leaf springs are standard. I like leaf springs as they equally share the load across both axles on uneven ground, are easily rebuildable, and the trailer doesn’t need to be level, unfortunately they’re noisy and I believe are rougher then torsion springs. Torsions are very quiet, seem quite smooth IMO, but on uneven ground will not load share and can easily overload an axle, for this reason too the trailer must be pulled perfectly level. The morryde cre3000 and wet bolt kit should quiet the trailer down and help absorb the road shock that the metal on metal leafs won’t. The link shows a few measurements, but I need Center to Center of axles, bolt spacing on the equalizer, shackle length, leaf springs width and possibly tire to fender clearance, although im sure I could just reposition the fenders if need be. I will try and contact boatmate directly if nobody can get me this info, Thanks
  3. When I got the quote for my zs232 back in Aug/Sept, my dealer informed me of a 3% price hike for boats built after October 2021. I just assumed that increase was added into the quote as we both knew my boat had a May 2022 build date. If anything changes I’ll report back, but he was adamant that his quoted price was the price I’ll pay and it won’t be changing. I’d certainly be a little pissed off with an unexpected price increase, especially since they should have known months ago, but not sure if it would be enough for me to walk. Read the fine print on the quote, probably not much you can do as you haven’t signed anything financially binding yet. Maybe they can work with you and toss in some extra gear or discount some added options. Hopefully it works out for you!
  4. Factory Build Times

    Even though there isn’t much action here, I’ll still update this incase anyone else is in the same situation. I talked to my dealer, he said apparently supreme is prioritizing customer sold boats, and dealer stock boats are getting bumped. My delivery date of May is still on schedule from what I’m told, which I’m happy to hear. His first boats (2) have been sprayed, but are currently sitting on the side line until they can squeeze them in he claimed. His new supreme Vinyl samples are on the truck now, so looking forward to seeing those and getting that figured out. Finally, does supremes website piss anyone else off? It annoys me that they can’t get their boat builder and site 100% up to date and functioning properly! I feel like that’s not asking too much….
  5. Just curious if anyone knows the situation in the Supreme plant? Delays, production numbers, quality concerns being a brand new facility? My local dealers first 22 ZS was supposed to show up start of October, as of now it hasn’t even gone into production. The new vinyl samples are supposed to come in with the first boat, and I’d like to see the OTB pattern in person before deciding, so I’m waiting to crawl around that boat and obviously check out the new samples. His 22 Centurions are coming in already. Adding to this, I was given a May delivery date. Its a long ways away, but should I be worried at all of it not showing up until well into summer?

    So I got a bit of clarification this morning, the ezV hull is based off the new optiV hull under the 230/245/265 and the taperedV hull was more based on the oringinal optiV hull is kind of how I understood it. So basically, all things being equal, the new ezV should perform better at everything then the taperedV. That could be way off though, just relaying what I was told. Im guessing for 2023 the taperedV will be updated to the ezV. Hopefully that won’t hurt resale too bad on 2022 212/232’s.

    I watched the YouTube video again, I’m not sure what I was doing or how I missed it the first time, but there’s definitely a cooler in the floor that she opens and talks about haha. I also didn’t catch the “standard” hinged seats first watch, wonder if that will carry over to the smaller ZS’s? Lots of questions for my dealer. Looking at the 22 232 build sheet, no mention of the observer drop in back rest, guess I overlooked that as well. I’ll be sure to ask some questions next week.
  8. ZS252

    I think you’re pretty close on that timeline. I tried to upload the pictures to compare but the files are too big and I’m just on my phone, so not messing around anymore, but if you go to supremes site, compare the pictures of the 252 and 232 from the back. The easy V doesn’t look nearly as deep as the tapered v. From the swim platform down (even though the angle of the picture is a little different) the 232 looks to have a fair bit more depth. Might partially explain why there’s not a significant ballast increase. 252 isn’t even on my radar, but still nice to know the difference if a guys buying a 22 212/232.

    After watching the video and looking at some other pictures, looks like it could have an in floor place for a hard cooler by the driver seat, no mention of it though. I would have guessed more ballast, an extra 200lbs probably isn’t enough to sink those extra 2ft of hull. Still looks good though, and huge! Lastly, I hope the removable seat backs for the center sliding seat are available as an option for the 232.
  10. ZS252

    Lol, I came here to basically post this exact statement and question. Does seem weird, I wonder if the easy V maybe wakeboards a little better or something? Be cool if they’d explain the big difference and why they went that way. Just found their YouTube post, haven’t even watched it all yet.
  11. ZS252

    I know it’s not really mind blowing news, but now it’s official. Be interesting to see details on this beast, drops on the 8th I think. Any predictions?
  12. 2022 ZS232 Updates?

    I learned 2 things yesterday! First is that the H5 engine is no longer available. After watching some videos, the H5 looks every bit as good or better then the 450, so I asked my dealer about the cost and ya, no luck! Second is, only white thread for vinyl stitching is available in the supremes, gotta step into centurion to get that color option. Somewhat annoying as I don’t want any white, but not the end of the world.
  13. On the 2021 ZS I demo’d, he just filled everything full, dumped a bit of rear ballast from the opposite surf side and I believe just ran the quick surf settings with a little change on the stinger. I could be way off on that, but I don’t remember him going into great detail on surf settings so I think it was quite simple for setup.
  14. Good feedback Eric! I too had a similar experience on my demo. I was somewhat hoping that the wave would only be marginally better then my 22v. With just 3 of us in the boat, he dialed it in for surf regular, I’m pretty sure I started laughing due to how blown away I was (possibly even partially in shock). The wave was significantly taller, longer, deeper etc etc, the board I can barely surf with behind my boat was way too fast on that monster. My cheque book basically came out on the spot haha. The tiges are definitely sharp boats inside and out! Seems they don’t get much attention in comparison to the other big brands, but I guess there must be a reason.

    Did you price out a supreme/centurion silent stinger from the 2022’s? If they even fit on the older hull that is.
