    Default SA changes/differences?

    Hello all, I haven't posted much here but have been active on the Moomba site for a long time. I am looking to upgrade from my 07 LSV and get something newer. Either a new Moomba Kaiyen or a used Supra. Specifically a 2016-2019 Supra SA. I'm trying to get as much info as possible before i pull the trigger. I'm hoping you all can give me a little (or a lot) of insight. Couple of questions...

    1. Is the SA basically the same from years 2016-2019? The hull and interior stayed basically the same through those years?

    2. I know each year there are some changes and upgrades, can anyone talk about the major ones between these years?

    3. Is the flow surf system the same through these years?

    4. is there any year i should stay away from?

    5. Can anyone comment on how tall the boat sits on the trailer with the tower down and even the racks off? I'm guessing i won't get it in my garage.

    Thanks guys, i appreciate it.

    [mention]996scott [/mention] Overall, 2016 - 2018 are going to be very very similar as far as performance and features. 2016-2018 has the same screen, interior, storage etc. The 2019 has Supras new screens which is a great addition, power tower, surf locker and is a much better boy than previous years. I canít comment on the 2016-2018 wave as I havenít actually surfed them but I have owned a 2015 Supra sc400 which was a great boat but my new 2019 SA400 is amazing. The wave, interior, tower, ballast system, and screens are much better and for me, justify the upgrade. This is all my opinion but if it were me, I would either buy a 2016 or a 2019. The differences between 2018 and 2019 are massive and the price tag is not too much different so I personally would not spend the money on a 2018 and miss out on all the upgrades that 2019 offers. I know itís not in your options but 2020 is a massive leap for the SA as well.

    A couple of big things happened in 2019 - motor and transmission. I think the ? motor was a full-year change for all models, but the transmission was a mid-year change.

    Transmissions went from 1.5:1 to a 1.76:1 transmission.

    Motor went to 460. Different from the 440 they offered in the previous years.

    Flow is used on the Moomba line, a SA in 2016 had the Supra Swell 2.0. The 2018 models switched to Swell Surf 3.0 & Supra Smart Plate - current system.

    The 2018 should have the 6 pump ballast option.

    The screen & dash change was on the 2019s. Big change.

    Thanks for all the info guys, it's very helpful. Sounds like 2019 had some really nice upgrades from the previous years. Keep them coming if you think of others.

    Default SA changes/differences?

    Power tower was new in 2018 along with 6 pump ballast.

    You will not be disappointed in an SA.

    Also, 2018 SA with FXone power tower full down and racks off is 95Ē on a trailer with 15Ē tires. Clears my 8 foot door.

    EDIT: just measured my garage clearance at 94.5Ē and with racks off, I have about an inch gap, so I would say Itís 93.5Ē tower down racks off.
