The Sky Supreme V230 is the supreme model in Supreme's lineup. Introduced last year, it has the greatest length (a full 23 feet) and the widest beam (100 inches). That, of course, translates into one of the most spacious wraparound lounges on the market, not to mention an extremely comfortable open bow.
This V230 is available in two versions – traditional wraparound seating (like our test boat) and a walk-through transom version hidden under a removable sun pad cushion. New for 2004 is a powered hatch in the back, accessed by a convenient dash-mounted switch. The MerCruiser engine features a sophisticated data-management system that monitors 64 engine functions and continuously adjusts the engine operations for optimum performance.
With spacious walk-around room and a deep freeboard, this boat works well for big groups of wakeboarders as well as big families who just want to cruise for the day.
The recreational skiing behind this boat is still better than what you'll find with an I/O. Or you can really make the kids happy by bringing along the biggest tube you can find, then spending a weekend bouncing along these wide wakes.
Out of the box, the V230 will give you decent wakes with the standard factory ballast. But in order to really get pro-level size, you need a lot of weight to optimize its potential. With three additional ballast bags, our testers enjoyed large, smooth ramps. Tweak the trim tab to customize the wake and you're dialed for a fun session.
