Some background, I have spent couple days combing through forums and news articles on the ZS212. Mainly surf so say 70/30 surf/wakeboard. Seems more folks have purchased the 23’ version (ZS232) I’m just looking for a 21’ since price is lower and storage is easier. Seems like buying new is my only options as it’s a fairly new boat. I would like to stay below 80k but I don’t think that will be possible with the zs212. I stopped by my local dealer here in Portland and I really liked the boat, the control center could use some help but other than that it’s a great boat. The freeboard is crazy! Loved it. I’ve surfed/wakeboarded behind a 2018 s238 for a couple years now do I’m familiar with the family of boats.
Would anyone say there will be a downside to say resale value of a 21’ vs a 23’? If that’s the case I might have to pickup a used s238 for now or possibly late model Moombas as both are in my affordable range, and later couple years pick up a zs212 with some hours on it. Couple dealers in next door states have the zs212 up for about 84k which isn’t a bad price for new. Perhaps if I hold out until close to winter I could score it under 80k? I have read H20 kings reviews on the ZS and there’s really good feed back.
Any feedback is appreciated!
