  1. Big Cat and Troy, Thanks for the replies. I appreciate the first hand knowledge on the ZS line Troy. I agree about the differences not being too significant. I also agree about lead. I’m not a big fan either. Really, for all of the reasons you mentioned. I had a Moomba before (direct drive) and it was a great boat while we had it. Which is why I was looking into them. Main thing that got me on the Centurion/Supreme brands were that from what I had read they didn’t require lead or weight inside the boat. I’m okay with upgrading a plug and play but I know there are times when the boat needs more and a bag is in the seating area. I definitely did not want this. I know the Mojo’s I sent did have upgraded bags. I guess right now I’m trying to decide if we want to take out a loan (likely small, around or less than $30k), or pay cash and have the boat free and clear. I think it’s more likely we pay cash. Simply because I hate having payments on things. But it is fun to look at more expensive stuff. Although I know this can also be a trap as well. I showed my wife (who is not too familiar with boats) a 2021 Ri265 the other day without her seeing the price. She was like that is way nice, lets get it. I told her the price and that changed for a bit. Then she came back later and asked what payments would be. I said we will not be getting a $215k boat or anything close to that price range. But I appreciate her even thinking about it. It just reminds me that she just wants something that is going to be best for our family. Anyway, thanks again guys.
  2. Got a reply back on the 244. It sold. No worries though. I appreciate the advice. Still curious what your thoughts are on the boats I sent. Let me know.
  3. So after looking at the pictures again. Based on the photos I saw, it does look like the 244 has plug and play ballasts and CATS. Although I'm still waiting to hear back from the seller. Sent a message yesterday. It does not have quick surf. I like the idea of a bigger main cabin area. The older kids may sit in the bow but the younger ones are generally in the main area. So that's good to know. Let me know what you guys think. I'm in Colorado right now but we head back home to Texas next week and I'll be looking to pull the trigger on something soon. I'm definitely not getting something without seeing it first but most of what I'm looking at is a days drive. So I'm trying to be wise about what I go see and the time/money it takes to do so. Just trying to pick the brains of people with more knowledge than me to make the best decision. Thanks again
  4. Troy and BigCat, Thanks for the info. Troy what year is your ZS? Just curious. Below are links to the boats I've been checking out. The top two are the SV and ZS I'm most interested in. Just wondering your thoughts. This will be my first true surf boat so I just want to make sure I get it right. While trying to keep budget in mind too. My wife is good with whatever and honestly I'm typically the one over analyzing. I'm also the guy who goes to several places comparing prices to try and get the best deal. Which I've done with multiple vehicles. It can drive my wife crazy. Understandably so. So getting a good deal can matter too. But because this is my first surf boat I'm a little confused as to what a good deal could be. I just don't want to look back and feel like I should have done something else. Also being able to sell later may matter too. Especially if I'm getting an older boat. Although I recognize the SV would likely be a solid option. What are your thoughts on resale if we decide to upgrade a few years down the line? Anyway, I've rambled enough. What do you guys think? https://www.onlyinboards.com/2015-Centurion-Enzo-244-for-sale-Plantersville-Mississippi-138730.aspx https://www.boattrader.com/boat/2021-supreme-zs232-8356556/ https://www.boattrader.com/boat/2019-supreme-zs232-8381001/ https://www.onlyinboards.com/2021-Supreme-ZS232-for-sale-ROHNERT-PARK-California-136159.aspx https://www.onlyinboards.com/2015-Moomba-Mojo-for-sale-Hot-Springs-Arkansas-138345.aspx https://www.onlyinboards.com/2018-Moomba-Max-440-Raptor-for-sale-Colorado-Springs-Colorado-138921.aspx
  5. Looking for some help on a boat decision. I'm currently debating between a 2015 Enzo 244 with about 350 hours listed at $85k and a 2021 Supreme ZS232 with about 90 hours listed at $110k. My biggest priority will be surfing. I had a back injury so jumping on a wakeboard is pretty much out. I'm still new to surfing but I want to be able to progress as well. I previously had a 2005 Moomba Outback (direct drive) that I sold after getting hurt. So I know any boat I get is going to throw a much better wave. I've leaned more towards Centurion and Supreme just feeling like I'm going to get more out of the box without having to add a bunch of extra ballast or lead weight. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are between these two boats. The Enzo is more within budget and I could pay cash around that price. Which is obviously advantageous. We'd have to take a partial loan out for something in the ZS price range. But I like the idea of a newer model boat with a warranty. I'm also curious on resale value maybe about 5 years down the line if I decide to upgrade. Some info on who is going to be using it... We are a family of 5 (kids 9, 6, 3) and will generally take out another family of 5 (kids likely similar age). So storage will be a priority as well. We'll mainly use it for surfing but the kids obviously like to tube as well and will likely wakeboard and ski some later down the line. My wife will be driving the boat when I'm surfing. She is not as familiar with boats so ease of use could come into play. Although she's totally willing to learn. I think that's it. Let me know if you have any other questions. I'm also open to other suggestions as well.
