This all-aluminum boat is lighter than some of its fiberglass competitors, so it takes more to weigh it down. Pavati got some serious ballast numbers in this new boat. The ballast is subfloor, so you don't trip over bags all the time or sacrifice any storage. Getting 5,000 pounds of weight into a boat is not quick or easy, but Pavati uses a gravity-fed system that opens gates to flood the hull below your feet and double the dry weight within a few minutes. When the ballast is done loading up this all-aluminum hull, put the displacement to work with the Rip TideTM surf system, a proprietary wave-maker that keeps the boat evenly weighted and produces a wave by extending a blade down and out from the side of the stern.
