22′ Epic 23V

Epic doesn’t build its Epic 23v as a multisport, luxury-cruising, parents-going-for-a-tour-around-the-lake kind of boat. Nope, this is just a hard-core utilitarian wakeboarding machine. It throws off a massive wake, thanks to 4,000 pounds of factory ballast. It pumps out thumping tunes to the rider with its innovative 10-speaker transom sound system, and it has dual-rudder vector steering for super-precise double-ups. Plus, with its advanced, lighter, stronger resin-infusion construction, the Epic 23v’s dry-weight is only 3,200 pounds. So you can tow this purebred with a gas-sipping V-6. Inside, it features a tough CCM-grade material in high-wear areas, cushy foam flooring and stealth LED lighting throughout. Pure and simple, this wakeboard boat is for people who want to ride.


With more stock ballast than any other wakeboard boat in this guide, the Epic 23v’s wakes are massive with a vertical pop that makes easy work of wake-to-wake moves. The integrated trim tab helps dial in the peaks for moves into the flats, and the twin 1,500-pound rear tanks create standout surf wakes on either side of the boat.
