View Full Version : Any Water skiers?

If there are any avid water skiers out there, which I am certain there is one or two, what do you think of these boats? This is got to be my most favorite to ski or even wakeboard behind.

I used to have a bass boat, but it was a bit too fast for water skiing :hihi:

Still, it is the second generation who has it. My father had it first, when he bought it 2000, then he got tired and bought somehting else, and I got to buy this on. Love it.

www.pershing-yacht.com and then 88'. It has the dubble caterpillar 1830bhp engines.

axeru, that's a pretty nice boat you got there. :bigeyes:

My boat was only 17.5 feet :vsad2:

January 27th, 2004, 22:01
This is not my boat anyway :hihi:

Thats what happens when one does what the sign days not to do. :hihi: :hihi:

January 27th, 2004, 22:27
hahaha! Looks like the boat was trying to overtake the car! Very funny!

Nice boat there, Axeru! Not bad at all! Great paint work too, makes a different for the countless- white and blue boats out there. If I remember correctly the White/Blue colour combo was something to do with a tradition of some sort, anyone care to refresh my memory?

We're had a few small Searays in the past, but they had to be given up for the odd business venture, these ranged from 21 feet > 45 feet. Never got back into serious boating since. We have a couple jetskies though!

These are Polaris PRO 1200s, the one with the Number 1 on it is the 2001 version, while the other one is the 2002 model. The 2002 is better peformance wise (CDI, Exhaust, Flame arresters) while the 2001 is better looking. We've had a Yamaha GR1200R, WaveBlaster I, Seadoo XP and GSX and a Kawaski Ultra 150. All are good skies, some better than others in certain sea conditions, while the Polaris PROs are the best all rounders we've had, hence keeping them since we aquired them back in their days.

Jetskies are great for thrill seekers or even a family (check out the Yamaha FX140!)

Here's a few pictures...Although, these are nearly nothing in comparison to the boat Axeru has shown!!! :bigeyes:

All your toys are way to fast for me ;)

It is not so very cheap to have this boat either. Recommend you to never ever buy one of these. Every time I fill the tank, I have to pay 1200US dollars. But i know it's a nice boat, because there is everything you would find in an average house.

But still, ilove to sail it. You know the feeling of leaving the harbour, with every one starring at your boat.

by the way, the paintjob is the original one, nothing special.

:addict: Does not cost as much as the boat to fill up!!!

January 29th, 2004, 18:32
I'm surprised it doesn't cost more to fill up.

They say you should have a budget thats 10% of the boat's value to have as the boat's expenditures each year. So, a 2mln boat will be well maintained with a budget of 200,ooo each year.

what range does your boat have- btw?

Nice boats :)

How wide is the carriage for 2x jetskis?
