    High-fun Performance

    Supreme’s Modified Deep-V Hull Design makes the funnest waves and wakes with the softest ride. This hull design is unique to Supreme boats displacing more water with less weight for amazing size and shape without compromising shock absorption on rough water. QuickFill Ballast leaves time for more fun with tooled-in ballast system that fills in two minutes and drains just as fast. The new standard Stinger Wake Plate orders prop turbulence to create cleaner wakes and waves without compromising push or kick. The large surface area of the Stinger also provides tight control of the boats running attitude, which improves wake shaping and rough water ride. Supreme QuickSurf moves World Class waves from side to side with a touch; in a Supreme boat weighted equally for comfortable level operation. All of this performance and fun is powered by GM Marine. Supreme boats now are optional with a GM Marine L96 6-liter 409 horsepower Crusader engine with 410 foot pounds of torque.

    Cool Style

    Supreme Boats is towering over the rest with style, strength and simplicity. The octagon-tubed Octo® Tower by Skylon offers strength and unique style to the 2017 S238. The Octo® has the strength of a compression latch activated overlock as well as the simplicity of weightless folding. Supreme’s new SportShield® windshield compliments the lines of the S238 and follows the design cues of the Octo® Tower with branded black wrinkle-coated a-pillars. Supreme gel coat graphics create the pride of reigning supreme even at the launch ramp. The cool look reflects Supreme fun performance and elevates pride of ownership. Supreme has created a new class of towboat with premium interior at a value price. The multiple colors and textures of Spradling’s Satin Matte Vinyl are sewn together with double and triple-stitched seams of GORE® TENARA® Thread included the hand-covered dash and throttle console.

    Strong Construction

    Supremes boats are now built with the strength, precision and environmental responsibility of vacuum infusion. The S238 hull, floor, stringers and all small fiberglass parts are now creating using the vacuum infusion process (VIP). VIP creates a stronger, more consistent boat while drastically reducing emissions. The vacuum infusion process requires specific tooling, longer cycle times and higher consumable costs; however, Supreme Boats believes the strength, consistency and environmentally friendly benefits of VIP far outweigh the additional costs. This is the same “extra mile” attitude Supreme Boats takes with respect to trailers. The XHD Extreme Heavy Duty Trailers offers the strength of 7 gage steel HD tube frames with heavy duty axles and a 6” Patented “Pivot Hitch”. Trailers are sandblasted and then powder coated prior to accepting custom colors. The XHD offers a custom West Coast look with Frenched-in LED lighting and sleek fenders. The Supreme XHD Trailer also comes with a 5-year warranty.

    I rode on/behind a ski supreme back in the early 2000s. It was quality. I would like to get a chance behind one against.

        S238 is anywhere from 80 to 90k depending on options. I have a 9 page thread over on Centurion Crew in the supreme section with all of my findings. Currently Im in the market for something a little different, more amenities and better surf and wakeboard wave like G23 or GS 24, the 238 is pretty bare bones in my opinion and barely a surf boat. Definitely doesnt wakeboard worth...too heavy to get wake cleaned up under 22.5 mph, not good for beginners. Surf wave is ok. Even with 1100 lb upgraded sacks in the rear lockers and 600 lbs of lead the wave isnt that great. Not a lot of push, especially if you try to lengthen the wave. Ive got 45 hours on it, cracked fiberglass at the tower, not the only boat that has done this, and a bunch of other smallish issues, which in my opinion are from not taking the time to build these properly. I even had a bunch of fiberglass under my carpet which scratched the black paint up before i even used the boat.

        Should you buy one? Maybe. Its a good price for a big boat, but quality control is lacking and you will want a good dealer to work through all the issues.
