Are there any advantages to the 2001 x-star over the 2000 x-star? I think the 2000 model has the 1st generation zero flex tower. Are there any drawbacks to it over the 2nd generation tower? Is the hull the same on these two boats? Anything to watch out for? Thanks.

the tower and the platform are the major cosmetic differences. the hull is the same. not sure on the motor or tranny, but i know the 5.7L 330 EFI was an option. i thought the seating was different, but i think that was the 99.

2000 only had KGB ballast in ski locker. 2001 also had tanks in back.

As seen in the pics, there is more seating in the 2001, and the engine cover / rear lockers are in 3 pieces instead of 1, and the tower looks better and folds easier.

im pretty sure the picture shown with less seating is of a 99 because i have the 2000 and the seating looks the same as the the picture of 2001.

sorry not correcting you, you had them labeled correctly just reiterating it after the comment that the 2001 had more seating.
