Supra Worlds Launch 21 V 2009

OVERVIEW

The World's Edition wakeboard boat package is available on any Supra Launch, but the new Supra Launch 21 V wears it best. With its custom black gelcoat, gold sponsor decals and black stainless-steel rub rail, the all-new "Blackout" bundle of upgrades is the perfect complement to the Supra Launch 21 V's luxury SUV styling. But the World's Edition benefits aren't merely cosmetic. Along with engine and stereo upgrades, the package also includes black swivel board racks, a custom trailer with 18-inch wheels and the easy gear storage of the Z-5 cargo rack.

FAVORITE FEATURE:

Z-5 Cargo Rack

Standard on the World's Edition Supra Launch 21 V, the Z-5 cargo rack is one of the most functional features we've come across in the last couple years of wakeboard boat testing. Not only does the Z-5 operate as a Bimini top, it also safely stores everything from wakesurf boards to life jackets and swings down into the main lounge for easy loading and unloading.

THE WAKES

The wake behind this wakeboard boat is solid with a nice lip, even at just factory ballast settings. Be sure to tune it with Supra's new electric wake plate. We liked it at about three-quarters up on the gauge.
