Dono about that…their~exterior look like a 7 year old design and an accident waiting to happen with the automatic nose down during a turn, taking away too much from the driver. Their trying to do to much with one hull…would stay away from that...

Our friends at the lake are buying the G23 with the Yanmar diesel. The list price upgrade for the Yanmar is $40k. The local dealer has discounted that to $32K. Still a lot of money.

If the demand allows you to get a large portion of the diesel upgrade cost back in resale you could convince yourself it is worth it. My perspective is that there will be little demand for a diesel wakeboard boat in the used market and people won't value it. This is in direct contrast to diesel pick-up trucks where there is a higher demand and people are willing to value the diesel when selling.

Be interesting to see a side by side comparison on the water. Any videos on the subject?

Yikes, wonder what a ZZ8 costs - because you're still paying for the ZZ8 in the base price!

Third world countries might like diesel, why would anyone want one? Fuel is cheap and going to stay that way…long time…mark my words, read my lips…lol

You think the dealer is expensive now, wait until a diesel Marine Mechanic touches it…42k motor, lets say 300 an hour

Also not a lot of fresh water lakes or reservoirs don't have diesel at the pump.
