The SV609 is like the Porsche Boxster of the Svfara lineup for a few reasons. Not only does this ski boat have the sleek styling of a high-end sports car, with a custom Dino steering wheel and stainless-steel appointments, it also has a high-performance attitude, throttling up to skiing speed and locking in on the course at a lightning-quick pace. The SV609 offers serious skiers a well-rounded slalom specialist with all the class and style you’d expect from Svfara.
With a lot of boats increasing in size to keep up with the pace of the growing wakeboard industry, the sub-20-foot SV609 is like a breath of fresh air for boaters who face small-lake conditions. Not only is the narrow hull instinctively easy to manage because of its size, it also directs the boat down the straight and narrow during intense slalom pulls and helps it handle efficiently through tight turns.
That smallness also helps this boat achieve impressive wakes for skiers working their way up to the shorter line lengths. You can expect a bump and rooster tail at the usual 22 off mark, but after that, the wakes are soft and manageable all the way down to 41 off. In fact, skiers tackling 15 off will be able to gain confidence behind this boat, fine-tuning body position without the worry of jolting wakes.
