The MSRP on that boat has to be very health!!!

I heard that Diesel option was $30k extra on the price tag.

Also heard it was for mainly European customers.

No... The motor MSRP is $32,540 and the base MSRP for an X-14 is $59,980 as of 2008.

No... The motor MSRP is $32,540 and the base MSRP for an X-14 is $59,980 as of 2008.

So its probably a $105-110K MSRP pretty easy. I doubt its a base boat with just the diesel upgrade only.

The boat is sold to a VW car dealer. And we were close to the 6 digits number !!!

Trading in depends on a lot of factors, André. I will need to have a very good deal on this one to trade. Pretty happy as it is, but always curious.

I go to Windsor once in a while, will let you know if you give me your coordinates through a private message.

Let me know if you like the show.

O cool. When I was on Grand Lake in OK there was about 22 Formula SS boats back in a cove all 40ft+, I think they where all friends. I have a picture somewhere; I bet there was $50million in water craft in those alone. There where also two of the 45ft Formula Yachts with ski lifts. I looked at there web site and that option is 35k alone! And here I was in a 19ft pro star LOL! There wakes almost tipped my little boat. It was like driving your car up next to a 18 wheeler!

Canada is in Europe. They speak French.....

Classy looking set up.

Nothing like a $100k boat to sell $20-30k cars(minus CC & Tourag)!!

Got a Crazy Question, Does the water every warm up enough in Canada that you don't have to use a dry suit or is that your normal gear to ski or wakeboard in all season

magnum,

water in June gets close to 70 degrees and in July and August around mid 70's. I did not wear a dry or wet suit last summer at all.

but for sure, our season is not as long as yours as it lasts from mid-May to mid-October.

The answer is yes and no.

YES (the water warms up and wetsuit/drysuit may not be required
inland lakes and rivers throughout Canada warm in the summer (the lake at our family cottage in Ontario averaged 75 degrees in July-Aug last summer)
sheltered parts of the ocean(s) that are shallow and/or calm can see the surface water warm to point that wetsuit/drysuit is not required (here in BC I have heard people refer to this as a "lens" of warm water on the ocean inlets in late August and early September

NO (water stays cold enough that a wetsuit/drysuit is required

inland lakes at high elevation, glacier feed or in the extreme north would not warm as much and some type of wetsuit/drysuit will likely be required
ocean(s) proper - Atlantic, Arctic (the name says it all), and Pacific - do not vary all that much season to season and some type of wetsuit/drysuit will likely be required

I hope this answers your question (sorry for keeping the tread-jack going). ;)

Last time I checked the area's in canada east of Sault Ste Marie are south of many states...

Heck prime Ontario Cottage Country is completely south of most of Illonois, Wisconson, Minnesota, michigan, etc...


Our lake averages temps in the mid 70's but late july/early aug get temps into the 80's for short bursts during a good heat wave..
