Ski and wakeboard boats generally are used on lakes, rivers and protected coastal waters where skiing, wakeboarding and wakesurfing thrive.

Listings for boats in this class are not viewed quite as often by shoppers on Boat Trader as center consoles and pontoon boats are (see the last two issues). However, they have a very strong fan base.

They are more viewed by Boat Trader visitors from Texas than pontoon boats are in any of the 50 states, and they are more viewed in California than pontoon boats or center consoles.

Although Florida residents generate the most views of many boat classes, other moderately warm-weather states with an array of inland and coastal waters come out ahead in this “get-wet” class of boat — notably, Texas, California and Georgia.

Illinois, at No. 5, is the top-ranked Northern state, ahead of Midwestern counterparts Michigan and Ohio, and Washington in the Pacific Northwest.
