I am hopefully going to be buying a tower for my Sportstar later on in the summer and need some help. I have been told by lots of people to go with the ND tower. I really like them but hate to pay $2000+ for a tower. Is there anywhere you can a ND for less money?

I hate to say it, but outside of checking ebay and craigslist religiously you may be stuck paying for a new one...

i hear that after hours at your nearest MC dealership they have a lot of the new towers sitting out back if you carry the right tools

I guess I'm just going to come off the hip with it! I guess it will be worth it in the long run!

How do you like your tower as far as riding behind it? Is it solid and does it rattle at all. That's the only thing I was worried about with it being a universal fit.

New Dimension Towers are everybody's first choice, and it would be my first choice when I'm spending OPM (other people's money). If it's MM it's a tougher choice.

For about half of what you will spend on the ND, you have several choices. The Big Air which I think looks OK and will do the job. Monster Tower is solid but personally, I don't like the looks on that boat.

Here is a lesser known option:

http://www.onlyinboards.com/ski-boat-accessories/krypt-towers.html

$1160 includes shipping for the Krypt Tower; I guess it's made by gang members; I am actually looking thinking about this one when I replace my tower (a really bad aftermarket late 90's something)

I know it is easier said than done, but definitely save up for the ND tower if you can. I had one on my Sport Star (just sold it 2 months ago to upgrade to an X Star) and loved it. There is no tower on the market that looks better on an MC than the ND tower in my opinion. Here is a pic of the boat I just sold - Also, this is what it would look like if you put a rack of speakers up on the tower too!!! :D

Negotiate ! Just for your knowledge, I paid $1850 for ND Tower and 1 board rack + $50 shipping. I also had MC dealer install and wire light for $240. This was just last month for a '06 197. Good Luck.

Where are you located in SC? I know someone in the Upstate area that could install it for a pretty reasonable price...Similar to what ND charges..

You could probably get Wayne (shop we picked the boat up at Sunday)to put it on for you pretty inexpensively.. He put mine on..

I've got a good offer on a mastercraft tower that came off of a 1999 X Star, the straight up kind that isn't as stylish. But I still think that I will wait and get a ND.

Yeah, that was the problem with that one. I store my baby under a shed that doesn't have that much height clearance. I think that the ND tower will fit by the measurements.

ND 100%

I installed this one on this 96 Prostar 190 and I installed one just last week on a 91 Maristar 210. Both came out looking dead sharp! I know you have pretty much decided.... but everyone around here loves pics... haha

All I can say is Spend the Money. If you have a newer MC these are a piece of cake to install. They line up with the embedded backing plates that MC installs. If you have an older model ND provides everything you need and the instructions are easy to follow. I looked at many other brands and I'm glad I spent the money.
