    I have been in several boats, driven some, on water too. At this time, I am looking at fishing boats (aluminum boats). My wife has different ideas of what boats are supposed to be. So, I show my wife this CL, she said that's what she is talking about. I don't think she is realizing that we might end up with a boat lot in our backyard. LOL

    While knowing this brand name - Malibu - is a good brand. What I am asking here is the front passenger seat, is not facing forward. Is that awkward position for regular recreational boating? I understand looking backwards to watch the water skiers, we wouldn't be doing much of water skiing (especially my wife wouldn't know how to drive a boat).

    I might be preferring to seek other Malibu boat (or other brands, but NOT Bayliner). The cost is the factor (up to about $5k?).

    Yes its a ski boat, so the seat Malibu has positioned the seat to face aft for that reason

      that malibu is a dedicated ski boat as AD mentioned, the only reason to sit there is to watch the skier. that is the spotter position.

      that boat (or any dedicated ski boat or wake-board boat) would not make for a good general boating experience. they are dedicated to reasonably calm waters. not enough dead-rise to be comfortable in anything over 1 foot waves. However they will tow a skier and turn 180 degrees within their own length at 30mph

        But in an emergency your wife MUST know how to drive the boat.-----Best get her to start learning tomorrow.-----Have her take a boating safety course.-----Includes learning how to use the VHF radio.

          There's nothing like being towed behind a tournament boat while skiing. Such a great dedicated boat doesn't usually make a good all-around family cruiser.
