This is MB's top-of-the-line wakeboarding boat for core wakeboarders. According to the manufacturer, this is a pure performance solution for wakeboarders with one goal in mind –bigger wakes.
The B-52 V comes standard with a 330-horsepower Excalibur MPI engine from PCM, giving it more than enough punch to carry a big crew and a boatload of ballast. Good thing, because you can really load this boat up. There are huge locking rear storage compartments that can hold at least two boards on each side due to the fact that the giant 1,400-pound ballast system is integrated into the hull.
This boat has great style and flash. The custom ergonomic dash is laid out with three big analog gauges, and its clean appearance is enhanced by the billet aluminum “bat wing” steering wheel. Throughout the boat is super-comfortable seating with multiple-density foam and a large angle of incline. The driver sits on an Attwood rotacast seat with molded foam and spring suspension with a multi-position bolster.
This is MB's best wake for wakeboarding. The huge ballast tanks take it from a beginner's wakeboard boat to a true expert-level wake with the flip of two switches. The B-52 needs no fat sacs to build head-turning wakes. This boat produces a smooth ride through big water and is perfect for a core rider who wants to bring friends along rather than fat sacs.
Possesses great wakes for core wakeboarders with a smooth peak and a steady transition.
The factory ballast holds an amazing 97 gallons of water per side, totaling up to 1,400 pounds of wake-enhancing H2O.
V-drive configuration gives cavernous rear storage for all of your gear.
A wide walk-through area allows easy access to and from the open bow.
Great windshield visibility from side to side allows good communication with dropped riders.
The engine compartment has reinforced hinges for long-lasting durability.
The swim platform is supported with metal brackets for added strength.
The ballast system makes a noticeable amount of noise.
Only one 12-volt adapter makes for lengthy fat sac fills.
The front storage is small due to the bulkhead under the passenger seat area.
