For boat buyers who want to look the part, the Supra Launch 24 SSV Worlds Edition means instant street cred on the water — in one complete package — thanks to custom graphics and regulation sponsor decals emblazoned for all to see. With Supra, we were already expecting a boat loaded with features, but watching this Worlds wakeboard boat pull up to the dock really impressed us. This top-of-the-line model has the same setup used to pull the pros at the 2007 WWA World Championships, and it’s the choice of Supra’s men’s team riders. With the Smart Plate wake shaper fully integrated with the standard Perfect Pass cruise, dialing up a pro wake was a no-brainer.
Just about everything you would ever want comes stock with the Worlds package: lights, speakers, board racks and the super-versatile Z5 Cargo Rack.
Nearly a full ton of wake-shaping weight — 1,950 lb. — comes standard on the 24 SSV, and that’s a very good thing.

Very big, naturally. Clean and poppy, with great double-ups. We could easily see not just the good-enough-for-pros potential, but the wakesurfing possibilities too.
Overall: With maximum factory ballast, fine-tuning the wake with the hydraulic Smart Plate is as easy as putting the wake plate down about halfway and adjusting it one mark up or down for slightly steeper or a little mellower wakes.
