Surprising really.
Several Wakeboard Boat Builders have released the newer and super popular cat style WB boats with more builders to follow.
Mailbu doesn't have a newer design WB boat, and they release this.

What's your take?

They did this once before in the mid to late 90's. I don't know how much of a success it was back then? Never seen one on the water.

The front trunk deal? All the wet stuff stored on top the stereo gear?

I gotta say it's a little "hokey" to be honest..

I think their going to have some major rattles with that front trunk lid deal.

Corvette people will love it...but it will be as succesful as the last time they tried it (not very). they obviously didnt think too much about the consumer considering the 2 forward facing front seats (lack of seat for observer).

Wonder if they were smart enough to swivel mount the helm & observer seats :hmm

Didn't like it before and I don't like it now. Just doesn't look right.

Corvette's are a classic..and should be kept off the water. :eek:

I like that about as much as I like the Mercedes MTI (I think it's an MTI)...not very.

Its not that bad. I wouldn't drive one, but it is what it is. Its a custom boat :)

I don't think it will hold up under the elements though. That hood is going to take someone's head off. That and once you sat in that driver seat, you would be sweating your ass off with all that dark interior.
