Zodiac Projet 350 - Waterskiing?

Hi everyone. I'm looking at the Zodiac Project 350 11.5' rib, and was wondering if anyone has one of these and uses it for waterskiing/wakeboarding. Just want to know if it has adequate power/weight to pull a 160 lb adult at reasonable speed with 2 adults on board. Also any other general comments about how this boat has performed for anyone who has/had one would be appreciated.

Regards,
Dennis

No idea about your specific boat but I can wakeboard behind my 3.45m flatacraft which has a 25hp yamaha on the back. It can also pull tube. I do howver use a lower pitch prop for towing. What kind of power does this zodiac have?

Welcome to the forum by the way.

Thanks Tim. The boat is powered by a 83 HP Yamaha Jet (2 stroke). The boat's dry weight is 300 KG. Here is a link:

The description claims it is perfect for water-skiing, but I would rather hear this claim from an end user rather than from the company who is trying to sell me the boat

Nice Zodiac, how fast? I'm so jealous of people who can waterski and pull tubes, looks like a fun rib. I'm stuck looking at ice for now.
