Wakeboarding V-drives have been around long enough now that we can start calling some models “classics.” The Sanger V210 fits into that category. This is a boat that’s been tested by riders for years now. It shows off what a smaller V-drive can do. Besides its easy-to-use size, it comes in at an easy-to-buy price. The Wake Series packages throw on a bunch of wake-specific upgrades and a choice of solid hull color or reverse gelcoat, and a special V graphic.
Hull: This is really where Sanger stands out. The hull design itself is based on the company’s more than 50 years of experience crafting boats, and the company is always evolving the patented Velvet Ride bottom to make it handle like a dream. The construction involves a material you rarely find in today’s wakeboarding boats: wood. Hand-laminated sheet fiberglass combines with Aqua Beam nonrotting wood-core composite stringers for a very strong boat with a very smooth ride.
Ballast: The Wake Series of upgrades comes in two varieties. Package 1 gets you front ballast. Package 2 has that plus ballast in two places in the rear.
Tower: The tower, like this boat itself, is tried and true–big tubes, sturdy design with cross beams for support and the possibility of outfitting it with lights and racks. The tower is available as an option on its own or as part of the Wake Series packages.
Wake shaper: The Bennett wake plate is an option but it’s a must for those of you who are as passionate about your wake size and shape as you are about your riding.
Seating: The angled observer’s seat and the contours of the rear bench give the interior a good feel. Even on a boat with a 90-inch beam, the wraparound lounge truly wraps all the way around, with a bench going up to the back of the driver’s bucket seat.
Well-shaped, with clean peaks and mellow transitions that don’t have too much trough, these wakes are good for most riders with just the factory-installed ballast. Additional weight can make the wake size really big for more advance rippers.
