For the family that enjoys big-lake boating, Sanger incorporates the best of its smaller models into a stretched-out package, the V230. Perfect for boaters looking for a solid deep-V that can cut through serious chop, the V230 provides more room to move around than any of its smaller counterparts. Seating and storage make the most of this wakeboard and ski boat’s almost 23-foot length and 100-inch
Beam: so you can make the most of every day on the lake.
Riders will absolutely love the shape of the V230′s wakes, which feature smooth transitions and large landing zones that are kind to the knees. Advanced riders will prefer additional ballast beyond the Wake Series system for bigger moves, but intermediate types will have all the size they need. This boat’s recreational ski wakes are also praiseworthy.
Considering its beefy size and stock engine configuration, the V230 was a test standout for its acceleration numbers, recording a 0-36 mph run in 7.3 seconds. If you don’t opt for PerfectPass, don’t worry too much; the boat holds speed like a champ.
The seating capacity and storage space are in full force on board the V230. The open bow and wraparound lounge provide comfy seats for up to 13 passengers. Three large storage compartments can easily accommodate skis and boards.
