Supra Launch 22 V 2010

Wakeboard Boat Review

A solid choice for any level of rider, the Supra Launch 22 V provides a meaty wake wrapped in a comfortable, rider-friendly package. With seating for up to 15 people, this wakeboarding boat will never leave someone behind, and the 1,450 pounds of factory bag ballast provide ample weight for a truly customized wake when used in conjunction with Supra Boats' VISION system. Dial in your wake, set your VISION profile (with a 300-percent improvement on ballast pump performance from '09) and you'll be off and riding faster than ever before.

The Wakes

The easiest to ride of the Supra Launch series, the Supra 22 V has just-right transitions with a matching span that allows for clean, unwashed wakes at a variety of line lengths. With 1,450 pounds of factory ballast for 2010, expect everyone, from pros to first-timers, to have a blast with this wake.

Don't Miss

Truly VISIONary Supra Boats' new VISION (video information system with integrated on-board network) system controls just about everything on the boat with an intuitive, 6.5-inch touch screen. This means while you have your Zero Off GPS cruise control set and you're casually pulling the first rider of the day, you can also set the SmartPlate and adjust the ballast to each rider. When it's perfect, save each rider's profile and the VISION system does all the work from then on.
