Svfara Marine is dedicated to providing the ultimate ski boat package with its SV609. The company says its boat delivers performance, handling, tight tracking, swift, smooth acceleration and a reduced wake at all levels of use thanks to an innovative hull design.
This boat features a hull, floor and stringer system joined together to become an integral structure. This innovative design with strong tracking channels and three tracking fins is constructed of 100-percent hand-laid fiberglass, barcol tested to ensure a complete cure. The boat features European styling with a molded automotive-looking interior and dash. Our test model featured a large assortment of standard amenities including dual speedos, a Clarion sound system with six molded directional speakers, stainless custom grab hand rails, extremely large front and rear storage and, of course, as a product of Canada, two heater vents.
For a rookie, Svfara got things amazingly right. This is a sleek-looking boat with great styling and impeccable finish work and attention to details. This is no backyard first effort. More important, all the claims about multi-sport versatility are justified. With world-class tracking, the SV609 was solid through the course, producing wakes that are excellent for shortline skiing. This boat is quite narrow, so the SV609 responded well to weighting. It surprised us with its ability to beef up its wakes, and though it’s a small inboard with a ski-boat footprint, wakeboarders can expect advanced-level wakes. Overall, with sports-car styling and high-performance handling, the Svfara SV609 is a hot boat from a cold place.
Strong multi-sport representation for slalom and wakeboarding. Small slalom wakes with a touch of hardness will please the tournament-level skier.
Impressive wakeboarding wakes for a sub-20-foot inboard. When loaded with fat sacs, it produces fairly big wakes with good shape and a solid peak that will please the advanced rider.
Amazing tracking capabilities allow the driver very little deviation in the slalom course.
Recessed armrests and grab rails give the boat a unique automotive feel in a tournament inboard.
Speakers within the interior are directed toward the passengers to preserve sound while the boat is running.
The removable rear seating is nice for true slalom appeal.
The driver’s seat is comfortable, but will be noticeably narrow for larger drivers.
A small open bow only allows limited legroom. û Absence of cooler.
