Australia is a country perfectly situated for water skiing, and they know how to build the right boats to do the job. The 2280 and Revolution are typical of the Lewis range with their zippy Mercruiser engines that produce a small wake at speed for a smooth slalom ride, and nice big wake for wake boarding at lower speeds. You can choose your colour and your Mercedes engine up to a maximum 425 HP. However, the trade-off in having a dual purpose ski and wake boat is that you can get a bumpier ride on skis. With rapid acceleration, they can also turn on a cent piece, and are perfect for skiing.
With all these features they still maintain a price below that of a purpose made boat for wake boarding. How good this will be for skiing we don't know, but it sports Volvo IP 600 engines as standard, with 418 HP each so is going to be fast enough. Skicraft, based in Bayswater, have been making championship ski boats since 1969, offering very reliable turning and maneuverability, but is also very safe.
