We found the Moomba Mobius XLV to be a great all-around wakeboard boat. This year a revamped hull has enhanced the boat further by handling ballast weight even better. The value is always impressive considering Moomba shares its construction, engineering and materials with sister brand Supra luxury boats. To test the XLV's versatility beyond wakeboarding, we broke out the wakesurfer and the boat's meaty wake threw out big fun for even our biggest riders. And with our test boat decked out in the Gravity Games Edition package of upgrades, we had a high-end boat at a great price.
Not only does Moomba offer a 325-horsepower EFI engine standard on a price-point boat, the warranty on it is now four years.
Buyers will look the part with the Gravity Games package, which includes regulation sponsor logos and a unique white color scheme.
This Gravity Games towing machine has pleased some of the word's best riders and it will continue to do the same for wakeboarders of all abilities. With the upgraded test ballast, our team of wakeboarders enjoyed advanced wake size with smooth transitions and really good pop. Overall: The wakes behind the XLV are versatile thanks to the hydraulic Smart Plate wake shaper, offering predictable pop and soft landings for wake-to-wake tricks.
Bow rise: 20.4 degrees during typical acceleration. Very low profile dash offered good visibility. Tracking: Super solid for a 23-foot V-drive, and it held the line and speed well as we powered through double-ups. Turns: We found these turns to be relatively tight for a boat of this size.
With standard 325 hp engine and OJ XMP 14.25×14 four-blade prop.
Recorded with driver and passenger turning through a double-up at the sport-specific speed.
