Best Wakeboard Boats 2011: Special Editions

July 5, 2011

While they’re not quite one-of-a-kind, these special-edition wakeboard boats feature the kind of customization that’s usually reserved for pros.

Supra Worlds Package

Ever wonder what it’s like to ride in one of the world’s largest and most prestigious events? Thanks to Supra’s Worlds Package, you can quit dreaming. The Worlds Package transforms Supra’s flagship Supra Launch 242 and Supra Launch 22V into exact replicas of the wakeboard boats that tow the WWA Wakeboard World Championships. While the Worlds Package is a special edition, it’s also universal, making a Supra Launch or Sunsport model fit for a world champion.

Custom look

Decals from Wakeboard World Championships sponsors MB Quart, OJ Props, Roswell Wake Air, Indmar and Boatmate Trailers add to the authenticity of the custom Worlds wrap graphic.


Sight and sound

The Worlds Package upgrades both the sight and sound of your Supra with Roswell’s four-speaker light bar. LED lights keep your sessions kicking well past sunset while the four speaker cans let you direct sound wherever you want.

Stylish storage

Keeping your arsenal of wakeboards, wakeskates and wakesurf boards safe and out of the way is simple thanks to the Worlds Package’s Z-5 cargo rack and upgraded swivel board racks. Part Bimini top and part storage rack, the Z-5 swings into the boat, giving you easy access to the securely stored boards.

Rule the road

The 18-inch wheels and stainless-steel fenders of the loaded-out tandem trailer make sure the Worlds Package looks as good on land as it does on the water.


Tournament-tested tunes

You’ll have no problem hearing your favorite riding anthems over the roar of the crowd thanks to the Worlds Package’s turned-up sound system, which includes six interior Kicker speakers, two amps and a 10-inch Kicker sub.

Randall Harris has always owned one of the most distinctive styles in wakeboarding. Now he has a boat to match it. The Axis Vandall Edition pushes the utilitarian Axis A20 and Axis A22 into a rock-star realm worthy of Randall with a mix of performance and styling special features.

West-Side wrap

One look at Randall’s signature tattoos and you’ll recognize the inspiration for the crossed-up bones of the Vandall Edition’s special-edition graphic. Rarely has a boat so suited its owner.


Get booted

The Axis A22 comes standard with a 900-pound factory hard-tank ballast system. The Vandall Edition boosts its water weight over 2,500 pounds with Axis’ Plug N’ Play ballast system, which includes two 550-pound bags in the rear and a 575-pound bag in the bow.

Propped perfectly

Move all that weight effectively and efficiently with the Vandall Edition’s wake-specific Acme 14.5 by 14.25 four-blade prop.

Wall of sound

The Vandall package includes Axis’ amped-up stereo option, which includes six MTX interior speakers, four MTX tower speakers, a 12-inch MTX sub, a transom remote and 400- and 600-watt amps.


Tricked-out trailer

The Vandall Edition balls on the road just as hard as it does on the water thanks to Axis’ Tricked Out trailer package, which includes blacked-out 18-inch mag wheels, automated runway lights and dual trailer ratchets for extra security.

Parks Bonifay Edition MasterCraft X-Star

For the past several seasons, MasterCraft has cooked up a special edition of its iconic X-Star to pull the world’s top pros on the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour. This year, there was no need. The company already poured all of its creative juices into the Parks Bonifay Edition MasterCraft X-Star. It’s pretty fitting, really: an iconic boat made for an iconic rider at the sport’s most iconic events.

Next-level look

The futuristic look of the Parks Bonifay Edition is a perfect reflection of Bonifay’s trend-setting track record. Customize the look further with a choice between crisp, clean white or sleek black.

Über-attention to detail

The custom look of the gelcoat carries over into the interior thanks to a host of unique features, including Parks Bonifay Edition upholstery, speaker grills, snap-out carpet, swim platform and steering wheel cap.

Trick tow point

Finish off the Parks Bonifay Edition’s future-forward look with a custom-colored ZFT 3 tower or MasterCraft’s all-new Power Tower.

Ride like Parks

Buy a Parks Bonifay Edition X-Star and MasterCraft makes sure you’re riding exactly like its legendary pro. In addition to Bonifay’s signature boat, you’ll also score his entire setup, including his pro model Ronix Ibex ATR wakeboard and Relik boots, Koal wakesurf board, Volt handle and R8 80-foot rope.

Ride with Parks

Need some pointers on how to ride that setup just like PB? No problem: Buy a Parks Bonifay Edition X-Star and MasterCraft will set you up with a session with Bonifay himself, either at Ronix headquarters at Washington’s Radar Lake or MasterCraft headquarters outside Knoxville, Tennessee.

Moomba Mobius XLV Gravity Games Edition

The Gravity Games was one of the biggest events wakeboarding has ever been a part of. While that action-sports extravaganza is no longer, it lives on in the Moomba Mobius XLV Gravity Games Edition, which takes Moomba’s biggest, most-advanced wake boat as a starting point and ups the ante with a custom graphic and a host of pro-level features.

Edgy elegance

The clean white-and-platinum limited-edition Gravity Games graphic combines with a black stainless-steel rub rail to give the Mobius XLV an edgy yet elegant look.

Powerful performance

The Gravity Games package adds more to the XLV than looks — 1,400 pounds of Gravity III ballast and multisport wake plate combine to create Moomba’s biggest, most-advanced wakeboarding wake. Moomba’s Digital Cruise Pro ensures a consistent pull every time.

Amped-up sound

The Gravity Games Edition stereo system cranks up the tunes with a MB Quart receiver, a Kicker amplifier and six Kicker speakers.

Tempting towing

A color-coordinated dual-axle trailer ensures the Gravity XLV looks as good on the road as it does on the water.

Super Air Nautique 210 Byerly Icon Edition

The customization of Scott Byerly’s signature Super Air Nautique 210 stands out even in this crowd of maxed-out rides. Looking at the Byerly Icon Edition, it’s tough to find a spot in which Nautique didn’t deck it out with Byerly branding. In fact, it would be quicker to detail the spots that didn’t get special-edition treatment. But that wouldn’t be much fun, would it?

The Legend’s look

Loud fury red Byerly logos accent a subtle repeating pattern of grey Byerly skulls on the onyx black gelcoat.

Custom cockpit

That this is no ordinary driving experience is obvious the second you sit down. Let your eyes sweep across the line of Byerly-branded gauges then grip the elegantly weighted custom steering wheel and throttle knob.

Lit up The Byerly Icon Edition gets even better when the sun goes down thanks to red LEDs that light up the Byerly-branded grab handles and cup holders.

Personalized performance

The Byerly Icon Edition’s rotating boards are adorned with a custom-machined Byerly name plate and the wake-shaping Hydro-Gate is custom-engraved with a Byerly logo and skull.

Details by the dozen

Custom touches are everywhere, from the Byerly-branded snap-out carpet and teak swim platform to the fury red tower speakers and custom interior embroidery.

Tige Platinum Edition

Tige Boats is celebrating its 20-year anniversary in 2011, and the company poured every ounce of its two decades of experience into its new Platinum Edition, which is available on the three boats in its flagship RZ line, including the Tige RZ4, Tige RZ2 and Tige RZR.

Platinum presence

The Platinum Edition starts with a once-in-a-lifetime look. The exclusive Platinum graphic is complemented by a choice of custom gelcoat colorways as well as pearl metallic accents.

Inner beauty

That stunning look is carried into the interior, where 20th-anniversary snap-out carpet and stainless-steel grab handles augment the special vinyl textures.

Touch above

The iPadlike control of TigéTouch comes standard with the Platinum Edition, which is convenient considering that this special-edition package comes with pretty much every option Tigé offers.

Pro weight

Tige’s 2,000-pound Pro factory ballast system boosts the Platinum Edition’s wakes to suit Tige riders Adam Errington, Erik Ruck and Daniel Watkins. You’ll have no problem moving all that weight thanks to the upgraded 6-liter, 409-horsepower PCM engine.

Color coordination

The limited-edition colorways of the exterior are mirrored in the color-matched Alpha Z tower and swivel board racks, giving the Platinum Edition a polished presence on the water.
