Heyday’s H20, with its pricing and neat features such as the patented Power Platform, makes owning a wakeboat more accessible. Hit a switch and this swim step rises vertically, shortening the boat to less than 18 feet and making garage storage easy, especially when combined with its folding trailer tongue. In the water, raise the Power Platform to keep waterfowl from climbing aboard and doing what they do.
More Heyday ingenuity is shown in the H20’s transom seats, which provide guests a unique view of the watersports action behind the boat. Bonus: Extra storage underneath these seats is easy to access from the back of the boat.
With a passenger rating of 12, the H20 offers room for a lot of friends and family to get in on the action together. We found the playpen-style bow very wide, offering loads of space for children and adults alike. Underseat storage throughout this Heyday H20 offers plenty of room for the requisite gear, while a sliding rear bench seat offers another option for guests aboard to watch the riding.
At the helm, the H20 keeps things simple for the captain in a good way. A Simrad touchscreen display on the right complements a stereo head unit on the left. Owners can control all of the boat’s functions and systems from this touchscreen, which utilizes a custom Heyday software package, aka GUI (“gooey”), or graphical user interface. Plus, since Brunswick manufactures both Simrad and MerCruiser, the captain can also use the display to check fuel and engine data.
When it comes time to do some riding, the H20 is no slouch. With 2,400 pounds of ballast located in four zones, plus three riders on board, the H20 kicked up impressive wakesurf waves and wakeboard wakes. The shape of both can be quickly customized by adjusting the center-mounted transom tab.
While manufacturers continue to push what’s possible by going bigger and bigger with new offerings, it’s refreshing to see Heyday buck that trend with the H20. It has big advantages with its smaller size, especially for buyers looking to get into the market without breaking the bank.
