WATER SPORTS

BOAT OF THE YEAR

It’s rare for a new boat model from a young company to impress the editorial staff at Boating. We test some 100 boats per year. That said, Montara’s Surf Boss 2.0 wowed us as truly innovative.

First off, make no mistake that this is an all-out wakesports boat. Its bottom—crafted in aluminum—and onboard ballast and shaping systems create wakes and waves that will please the most advanced riders. In fact, we hired a pro rider to help us test this boat, and in this video, you will see for yourself the level of thrill that Montara’s Surf Boss 2.0 can deliver. A wake tower is standard, as is a full-featured fiberglass helm, raised 5 inches and complete with a 12-inch touchscreen. Proprietary software ensures that beginners and experts can both create great wakes and waves.

In addition, this boat offers a deck layout that rivals the space and comfort of a luxury pontoon. Offering seating for 16 (its 23-foot  sister model seats 14), the 25-foot model we tested sported luxuriously upholstered seating, complete with draining stowage within. Two layouts are available, both with the ability to walk right through the boat from transom to bow. A unique feature is the “basement,” a huge, walk-in stowage area in the bow deck. See it in the video.

The Montara Surf Boss is truly two boats in one, and absolutely in a class of its own.

THE BEST

OF BOTH WORLDS.

THE SPACIOUS & LUXURY TOP HALF OF A PONTOON COMBINED WITH A FULL PERFORMANCE WAKE HULL

"What makes the hull so interesting is the aluminum construction giving you more durability than a fiberglass hull. " - Alliance Wake

The core purpose of the Surf Boss 2.0 is to provide boaters the freedom, storage, accessibility and socialization of a pontoon combined with a top of the line water sports hull and v-drive engine that produces thrilling wakes and waves.
