Once you've got a Corvette, what's left? Why, a boat, of course! You're not going to want to step out of your C6 into some aluminum row boat with a 5-horsepower Evinrude hung off the back. A 2-stroke buzz can't hold a candle to the barrel-chested rumble of an LS V8. Malibu Boats has introduced its latest Corvette Limited Edition Sport-V speedboat to solve your problem. The Corvette's most prominent styling cues have been lifted from the car and rendered in V-hull form. There's authentic Corvette seats, a dashboard that emulates the four-wheeled version, and even roll-down windows.
There are two different versions of the Sport-V, the Coupe and the Z06. The Coupe isn't lacking in anything, with 400 horsepower from its own V8, but the Z06 is just that much more over the top. There's not only 105 more horsepower on tap, but it also includes a lexan engine hatch to show off the LS7 engine and a two-tone interior and dash. To haul the Z06 around, it comes with a trailer that even uses Z06 wheels. General Motors approves, and the Sport-V speedboat will ease the pain of separation when you leave your 'Vette in the parking lot at the marina.

      pretty cool, but almost too gimmicky for me
      • 7 Years Ago
      that's cool!

      Are there roof panels that will fly off like the Corvette cars do?

      It's all good. There are plenty of people who drink way too much of the CC kool-aid and get sucked in to believing it tows the best, cures cancer, etc. It is simply not the case.

      They offer a tower, but it is not present on the display boat because it is not targeted in that direction.

      Oh, btw, the pylon that you thought is not really usable, is actually a retractable pylon in the down position. It is very usable when up! LOL

      Don't knock Moomba too much. Skier's Choice has come a long way and while Moomba is a price point boat, their Supra line is pretty darn awesome.

      I hope my uncle never sees this thing, he'll have a massive desire-induced coronary.

      I'm having flashbacks of "One Crazy Summer" with the Ferrari powered "The Boat".

      At least there's no roof panels to fly off of this one.

      OK, maybe this is a dumb question, but can a Corvette even tow a boat? I didn't see towing capacity on its website anywhere. Just wondering ...
        • 7 Years Ago
        It could, but who the heck would?
      • 7 Years Ago
      Two midlife crises for the price of one!
      • 7 Years Ago
      You'll pardon the pun,but they went a little "overboard" on the corvette logos...
      • 7 Years Ago
      Too bad it has a C4 rear end

      They finely got rid of the leaf springs.

      I'm kidding! I know I know, the leaf springs are super advanced blah blah blah, I just wanted to take a cheap shot...
