Moomba’s craftsmanship really shines in the Mojo. Hitting the Goldilocks size in the middle of the fleet, the Mojo is not too big to tow or difficult to maneuver, nor is it too small to bring a few extra friends.
At 23 feet, the Mojo creates a crisp, clean wake and wave. By default, the shape of the wake sits comfortably between vert and ramp, making it user-friendly for all levels right out of the box. It can also be customized and programmed to keep things consistent for an ideal learning environment.
Interior and Accessories
The strategically designed interior of the Mojo maximizes comfort and functionality without adding any extra cost to the consumer. This is evident in the thoughtful distribution of the cup holders, phone holders and USB charging ports, the nonskid GatorStep on the cockpit sole and transom walk-through, and the wide array of seating configurations. The fit-and-finish is exceptional for its class, giving Moomba a step up on the competition.
At the helm, operational controls are at-a-glance and intuitive. Everything was thoughtfully designed with convenience in mind, from the optional 7-inch touchscreen display to high-tech features like AutoWake to the built-in armrest next to the throttle. All come standard. Even a less-experienced driver can sit at the helm and feel comfortable with the controls.
Wakes and Waves
AutoWake deserves special mention for beginners. Its patented multisensor technology is designed to handle the nuances of wake- and wave-shaping so you can focus on running the boat.

Overall, the Mojo is a versatile boat that’s packed full of value for the whole family. Sitting comfortably at the intersection between form and function, this boat does everything well. Not only does it have plenty of room, comfortable seating, and a stylish design throughout, but the wake and wave also offer great shape and form to serve all riders, from beginners to those who are super-advanced and everyone in between.
How We Tested
- Engine: Indmar Raptor 400 350 hp
- Drive/Prop: V-drive/OJ 15.5″ x 16.5″
- Gear Ratio: 1.76:1 Fuel Load: 11 gal. Crew Weight: 315 lb.
- Crisp, clean, easy-to-ride wake and wave out of the box.
- In-floor trash can and sandal-storage compartment.
- Wireless charging pad on the dash for your phone.
- Bow and port filler cushions can occupy a lot of storage space when not in use.
- Both AutoWake and the trim tabs reduce displacement to even out and customize the wakes rather than adding to them, which might only be noticeable to more advanced wakeboarders.
The Axis T23 sits across the aisle, starting at $79,750, with a 16-person seating capacity and ballast up to 4,590 pounds. Axis wakes are known for their clean, customizable shape, mostly due to the Power Wedge III. The Power Wedge adds displacement while shaping the wake, rather than decreasing displacement with tabs or by extending the running surface.
