In an era of specialized motorcycles, cars and even telephones, there is no doubt that boats would follow the same trend. There are jet boats, ski boats, wakeboard boats and specialized water ski boats. If you go down to any resort area you are likely to even find boats that cater to parasailing.
Every type of boat has it own unique features that make it perfectly suited to its task. A ski boat usually has places to tie a rope, an observer position and a suitable platform for easy departure and entry. Wakeboard boats have a ballast system that allows water to be uploaded to make larger waves for the wake boarder to jump. Parasailing boats are usually very powerful boats with a large deck to the rear and a mounted winch to allow the parasailers an easy liftoff and recovery.
Specialized equipment also carries a higher price, as well. If you wait a few years, you are sometimes able to find used boats and pay quite a bit less. One thing about specialized boats is that they are usually well-made and have better quality components than die-cast boats.
Watersports boats are produced with specialized purposes in mind, but even for general pleasure use, the quality and reliability can't be matched.
