Young family yes, family with older teenage kids perhaps not. They're a fairly small boat that fill up quick with bodies, and you then have to fit the gear in somewhere. But, if you ski from a beach it would be good. I'd recommend something larger if you intend on loading up at the ramp and tripping out for the day.

I've had a phantom, spectre and an older ski nautique. If an older classic boat is your thing, a spectre will be great. They are a decent size and still have a clinker hull.

The best bet is to check out boats and get your family to sit in them. You'll soon figuire out if it's going to work or not. Don't forget the gear has to go somewhere - life jackets, towels, bag of goodies, esky, skis, boards, ropes etc etc.
