Boat for wakeboarding

Are there any experts out there that can tell me about Mastcraft/Malibu/Air Nautique boats. Thinking of buying one but not sure what to look out for. Any help much appreciated .. thanks.

Not interested in silly remarks etc, if someone has knowledge of ski boats your help is appreciated, if not, make your comments on someone else's thread.

I was actually making a suggestion as I'm hoping to sell my boat, If you weren't interested then others looking for similar boats may read this thread.
Up until now I was not aware that your suggestions of boats were a different hull style, thanks to Burty for helping me learn more about various style craft.

There are many people here who would've been extremely able and glad to help with your inquest, however I'm sure most will now agree with Burty, as I do.

Haven't actually advertised it yet as have hit rock bottom financially and need to scrape together a small amount to get the seats and side panels upholstered, then the boat will be complete. Just waiting for Dad to fit the new bushes in the engine then it's all done. If the upholsterey gets done before the motor I'll advertise just the boat as the outboard wouldn't take up a lot of space if stored till complete.
Jon's looking at another boat this week and taking the engine off his Phantom so that'll be avaible very soon! Therefore the Picton needs to go even sooner!

Told mum the next one's tiny bit bigger than this one and will easily hide away in the garden......that means I'll have to get it here when she's out at work one day!!

Any sort of Picton is head and shoulders above any "poof's lake boat.
