Supreme’s ZS252 grabs attention with its striking, aggressive lines. The sheerline, unlike any other, sets this boat apart (and provides inspiration for the “ZS” prefix). The lines are complemented by the cutout windshield and the optional Roswell F-series tower, which also houses the large Bimini shade, speakers and board racks. Notably, the Roswell Bomb racks hold any size of wakesurf board and can be equipped with flag mounts. Fly your colors!
There’s room aplenty aboard the ZS252 for a crew of 17 and all their gear. Seating features hinged cushions to access stowage and is also customizable. The sliding rear bench slots into three positions, and removable backrests allow crew to face forward or aft. An optional table creates a lounge ready for entertaining. The GatorStep flooring delivers comfortable footing and easy maintenance, and offers buyers a means of customization.
At the helm, Supreme installed a new 7-inch OmniTouch screen that controls all the boat’s functions, including the wakesurf setup, ballast, speed control, navigation and more. The user-friendly operation means a crew can be wakesurfing within minutes of getting on the water. The ballast system consists of six separate zones that combine for up to 5,100 pounds of added weight. This quantity is necessary for such a large boat, and it helps the ZS252 push out sizable wakes and waves. With fine-tuned adjustments to the center wake plate, the waves can be customized to suit a variety of skill levels. A toggle lever mounted behind the steering wheel allows the captain to easily adjust the wake plate. Riders can save their preferences for ballast and plate settings as a user profile.
Behind the boat is where the ZS252 shines. The wakes and waves are large enough for advanced-level riders but easy to customize for riders trying things for the first time. The ZS252’s wave features a large pocket with plenty of push—a necessity for learning crazy tricks or dropping the rope for the first time. Designed for families or large crews focused on wakesurfing and wakeboarding fun, Supreme’s ZS252 ultimately delivers with easy operation that makes the on-water experience more enjoyable.
