    WHAT ELSE IS NEW!

New Moomba Outback V has all Style and Performance of a Thoroughbred Sports Car
The all-new Outback V has made the heart of boating enthusiasts literally skip a beat. It takes only one glimpse to wet your appetite to go out there on the water. Moomba is not only continuing the heritage of the legendary original in the Outback Series; it is launching the modern expression of this icon, while paying respect to the brands long tradition of more boat for less money.

Liquid Force and the Moomba Mobius LSV have Joined Forces
Now that Liquid Force and the Moomba Mobius LSV have joined forces, a good thing just got even better. The Moomba Mobius LSV is the single most popular boat in the tournament wakeboard market segment; it's much like a 1970 Mustang Cobra GT, an instant classic that only grows more popular with time.

    ADDED FEATURES





It's evident from our 2009 model line up changes that at Moomba, our focus is on quality and season after season reliability at a price you can afford. At Moomba we believe quality shouldn't have to come at a crazy price to offer the wake shape, convenience, comfort and versatility you deserve!

For 2009 we made subtle enhancements. For example, while the wakeplate continues to work together with Moomba's hull design, it is now electric. The 2009 Electric Multi-Sport Wakeplate further maximizes efficiency. This enhancement offers riders more versatility and flexibility when adjusting the wake to adapt to various watersport activities.

Riders use the electric wakeplate to fine tune the shape of their wake by adding or taking lift away from the transom area. The combination of Moomba's electric wakeplate and weight from the optional Gravity III ballast provides a 4 plane adjustment (right, left, front, and back) of the hull running angle and produces the ultimate in wake shape control.

To further enhance the driver's experience, the Moomba design team has improved the ergonomics of the driver's seat by adding a new riser to the seat.

We have also added a new ignition switch and key that acts like the accessory position in your car, new stereo amp wiring, new dual battery wiring, better coolers, new non-skid swim platform and many more features.

The Outback V is all new for 2009. The new design excels in its proportions - while the length measures just less than 20', meeting small lake boat length restrictions, it has gained in width and depth featuring higher gunnels and a wider beam than its predecessor. To many admirers surprise, the deck layout has ample seating despite the length. The hull design features a drop V keel that more than satisfies watersports performance allowing slalom and wakeboarding all in one boat and the new stringer design improves the structural rigidity. Overall, the all-new design projects an aura of strength and self-confidence.


The most dramatic enhancements and added features to the 2009 model line up are clearly evident to the driver, rider and passengers by the reliability, performance and most importantly value of a Moomba boat. With Moomba, you sacrifice nothing!

We are often asked how we can offer such an incredible boat at $10,000 to $20,000 less than the competition. Well, it goes back to our core principle and philosophy of value.

Moomba maintains a no-frills approach and avoids pointless markups. We build into our products only what we know people really want, nothing more, nothing less. And we keep our costs down, but still our boats are built with the highest quality, market proven components which, by the way, are usually found in other brands throughout our segment. The result is that a Moomba owner experiences true tournament watersports performance, with reliable operation, at a category leading price.

Simply stated, if you want to be on the water, enjoying time with family and friends and feel good knowing you didn't overspend, then you need a Moomba!

    MOOMBA ENTOURAGE

At Moomba, we're always thinking and we're always listening to our customers, to our riders, to our engineers and to our instincts. Each year we compile the input from these resources and focus our new model changes to further enhance the quality and reliability of each model we build.

From the President of the company to the guy that lake tests every boat, almost every employee of the company loves being on the water. From wakeboarding to wakesurfing, from skiing to tubing with friends and family, the desire to be in a boat is what drives our day to day passion.

We have employees that grew up as show skiers, some that have competed on a collegiate level, a few that compete in the INT tour and a few that have competed at the World Championships. And of course many who just love to go out on the water with their family. We know why storage is important. We know why seating is important. We know why having the ability to shape a wake is important. Why pure quality and reliable operation season after season is important.

Not only do we know these things are important because we listen to you, to our riders and to our engineers, but because we also find these same elements important to us when we use our boats with our families after work and on the weekend.

We also realize that when you buy a Moomba, you are not only buying a boat, but you are also buying a lifestyle and a partnership with our company and our dealer. As a Moomba owner you can take comfort in knowing you get the full package and the support network you expect.

Now you may think this is all just marketing fluff and in a way it is; but, also it isn't. For all our team members, this is what we believe, this is who we are and this is what we do.

We take advantage of every opportunity to learn, and we know those opportunities are endless. The people at Moomba have a depth of talent, skills and experience; but beyond that we have people who care about what they do, who share ideas, listen to one another and work as teams to make improvements. We have standards and are disciplined in following them, yet to us, a standard does not represent a ceiling to maintain, but a floor from which to constantly launch new improvements.

With this said, please take the time to join our community of team members and owners all over the country if you haven't already done so. There are several platforms and venues to choose from, to include our:


    EVENTS

Moomba to unite owners throughout the country with nine manufacturer supported owner reunions.
