Sanger V210 Wake Series
Recommendation: Hard-core Wakeboard
The Sanger V210 Wake Series is a performance-proven family wakeboarding machine. This top seller in the Sanger lineup comes back to our test every year with only minor modifications because just as the old saying goes, “If it ain't broke, don't fix it.” The V210 is a solid boat built with a glass-encapsulated XL paneling core composite stringer system and 30-degree-entry V-bottom. For a smaller V, it handles rough conditions extremely well, and its driving performance is truly outstanding. Then you have that fine attention to detail that Sanger places on every boat that goes out the door. It's that solid, quality feel when you're in the V210 that reminds you that Sanger focuses on building one boat at a time. From the easy-opening gas-shock hinges on the storage lockers, to the plush marine-grade vinyl upholstery, all the V210 Wake Series needs is one test ride – and you'll be sold.
The V210 Wake Series' narrow 90-inch beam rides nice and deep when weighted, allowing advanced-level wake size with smooth, quick transitions. The solid size gives riders good pop off the top, which invites all of the moves in your arsenal. The driving performance gets an A+ across the board for its tracking, turning and speed-holding capabilities. If you're short on cash, you can hold off on purchasing Perfect Pass speed control for this baby. Even when completely weighted down with ballast, the V210 holds speed like a dream.
-Superb tracking ability backed by excellent wakeboard speed-holding capabilities.
-If weighted to optimal performance, the wakes offer pro-level performance with great lift and sweet shape.
-The 30-degree-entry V-hull is extremely solid through the double-ups and in adverse conditions.
-The boat deserves to be outfitted with the Wake Series 2 package for optimal wake size capability.
-Throttle position needs to be adjusted, due to limited clearance from the freeboard for optimal throttle control.
