I am about to order a new boat and are not sure if I should get the 40th anniversary 197 or the same X7 I already have and love.

Your thoughts!

I vote for the 40th, but I'm also a bit biased.

They make a 179? Just kidding! If the X7 was all black I'd vote for that but I like the 40th Anniversary boats.

same here, got to go with the 40th...

SteveO, I didn't get to see that boat in your picture, but I saw the 35 in the background. Nice graphics on both of those.

i'm saying the 197 LOOKS better but i'd buy the x-7 for the trimmings

is it possible to order the X-7 in a 40th edition?

Order a 197 and put whatever X accessories you want on it. If you don't need the ballast, then just get the tower.

I didn't realize that MC has been making the 197 for 40 years but I still think they look cool.

X-7, hands down. 40th Anni looks good on the X-boats... not on the 190/197's.

Why you upgrading from an '08 to an '08?

40th Prostar 190

that X7 may be the prettiest boat I have ever seen.......I like the 40th 197 too but this one is not even close for me.

LY6. The MCX does not cut it for barefooting.

Bigger motor. The MCX does not cut it for barefooting.

I'd wait til mid-july, when the line switches over to '09's... no sense in taking a big bath on the same year boat.

Did you special order that X-7 with the mini tower?

I'd go for the 197 for sure. But I'm a pure skiier, no wakeboards for me. Don't need at that extra junk hanging on my boat.

X7 looks better IMO. But I'd take the tower off - it would look even better.

That picture is of a 190! If thats the one your looking at go for it!

I vote for the 197 for sure....I saw the 40th 197 at our boat show this year...looked cooler in the flesh.

Does anyone know the going price for this boat? I have heard anywhere for the low 40's to the mid 50's...

Sure did! It looks much more proportional than the standard tower, don't you agree?

I wish my trailer sat lower like those Auzzie trailers do! It makes the boay look so much longer and meaner!

I'm with ya shep...X7 W/O tower. That's one sexy boat!

But then, I'm (and I think shepher is) a slalom guy...

I'm with you Sodar.
A friend of mine has a 197 on a Mastercraft factory trailer and it sits a good 8 inches higher than my Aussie trailer. It makes it a lot easier to load and unload gear into the boat with the lower trailer, not to mention garaging.

not trying to be mean, but is there a question here????? I love me some sparkly boats.
