Iguana's Featured Boat Brand - AXIS

Iguana Boat Sales offers several brands of boats- each of them crafted to perfection and designed for specific kinds of boaters. This week, we're going to showcase one of our brands that is dedicated to watersports - Axis. Let's take a look at this boating line from Malibu and see how it went from as a one of a kind lineup to dominating the North American market helping Malibu command 35% of the market.

Who is AXIS?

Axis Wake Research is an independent boating line from Malibu boats, designed from completely original concepts. Axis was created to get more people on the water in performance boat at a sweeter price. The boats are designed from specifications by pros in the watersports world and top of the line watercraft engineers from Malibu.

"Monster wakes and waves come standard." The redesigned 22' A22 has a hull that helps maximize wake/wave production, and comes complete with seating for 15 people and a control panel that allows the driver to dial into the perfect speed - every time.


"Built for enthusiasts and families looking for space, performance and versatility." This 24' watercraft holds more people and stores more gear than all the other watercraft in the A-series lineup. Responsive handling and a new hull give this performance watercraft a fresh yet familiar feel.

3 More Reasons to Buy a Pontoon from Iguana

Bringing your family to the Lake of the Ozarks is an absolute blast! We gave you 3 reasons to buy a pontoon boat in our last blog, and if that wasn't enough – we have more. Read on to discover 3 more reasons buying a pontoon at Iguana Boat Sales is the best option for your family.

#4. A Pontoon is a Boat that will Last

Pontoon boats are great boats because they are built to last. As your boat ages and begins to show signs of wear and tear, you can easily find parts and furniture that fit almost any pontoon.

Pontoon boats have an aluminum hull, which makes them particularly tough in shallower water. Traditional fiberglass v-bottom hulls can get torn or punctured by rocks and obstacles in the water.

#5. Plenty of Space to Lay Out and Get Comfortable

As we mentioned before, pontoons are perfect for bringing your friends out on the water. There's plenty of room for people to lay out and tan while others can wait for their turn on the tube in the back. With ample seating, no one will feel cramped for space.

Additionally, many pontoon owners bring accessories to enjoy a longer stay out on the water, like small portable grills and larger coolers... tough to do on smaller ski boats.

#6. Storage

If you are new to boating, this may seem like a minor benefit, but if you’ve been boating for any amount of time, you know how nice it is to have ample storage on the boat. Inevitably, you’ll invite people onto your boat who will bring the full ice chest, bags of clothing and “extras”, blankets for the chilly evenings, and all sorts of things. On most boats, this loads up every inch of empty space and makes for a cramped evening. On a pontoon boat, there is storage for just about everything your guests decide to bring.

3 Things to Consider When Buying/Renting a Boat From Iguana

At the best boat dealership at Lake of the Ozarkswe also have boat rental options available! You can check out your renting options at Many people wonder if it’s better to rent your Lake of the Ozarks boat, or to buy one. What determines whether you should rent or buy a boat? Here is a list of things to consider if you are stuck between buying and renting a boat at Lake of the Ozarks!

Party Boat at Iguana Watersports

How Often Do You Get on the Water?

If you are a seasoned Lake of the Ozarks' veteran, you'll know that the boating season generally falls between Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, give or take a few weeks. If you get on the water weekly, renting a boat can get costly. At the same time, if you are only able to get out on the water a few times during the season, purchasing a boat can be a sunk cost. You'll spend more time with upkeeps such as winterization/de-winterization than on the water, making renting a much more cost-effective option.

Where do you get on the Water?

If you are an exclusive Lake of the Ozarks' boater, then owning your own boat may be best. You know the seasons, and when the best boating events occur. Buying a boat and keeping it stored at the Lake may be your best option. If you wish to have a boat that can handle a larger amount of people than your boat can safely handle or want to get experienced on the water before purchasing a boat, then renting may be for you.  Hauling a boat and trailer to and from your home or the marina it's kept at is an often overlooked cost of buying a boat. By utilizing Iguana Watersports at Lake of the Ozarks, you can show up, rent the boat that suits you and the occasion, and launch off into a great time.

The Price Difference

Buying a boat is similar to buying any other vehicle. There are costs such as the boat mortgage payment, fuel, insurance, and maintenance/storage costs. This is a recreational vehicle that will need to be maintained in the off-season unless you have proper storage for it at home. Averaged over the year, these costs can seem high for someone who doesn't get on the water very often. 

Rinker 310 Express Cruiser
On the other side, renting a boat costs significantly less. You pay for the boat and the fuel you use, and a deposit in case incidents occur. That's it, enjoy your watercraft for the rental period and when you're done, it's turned in. No hassle, not extra costs. 

Rent or Buy Your Next Boat at Iguana!

Renting vs. buying a boat at Lake of the Ozarks is highly debated - which one should you choose? We recommend stopping by our showroom and talking with our experienced sales staff. They will listen to your goals and give you the best advice on whether you should rent or if it's time to consider getting that Rinker 310 Express Cruiser you've been dreaming of.
