View Full Version : X-45 Question - Con Job?

07-13-2009, 10:42 PM
So I'm in the market for a 45. I came across the following boat, which the seller is claiming to be a 2008. My review of the pictures - notably the side decal and the instrument panel - seems to indicate to me that it is an 06 or an 07, not an 08. The interesting thing is that he emailed me a copy of title and it did list identify an 08 X45 (although I have not yet been able to match the HIN number with the boat in the pictures, and interestingly enough there are no CF numbers on the hull). I'm thinking its a scam. What do you guys think?

hate to say but looking at the tower it appears to be a 06.

don't know how he could change the title to make it seem like a newer model.

06' X-2 R8R H8R

This 45 has been for sale for quite some time. As others have already noted, the red faced gauges, tower, and graphic are all indicative of an '06 model year. If the title he is showing you is infact the title for that boat, then something fishy is certainly going on. My guess would be that the boat has been salvaged at some point and has been retitled incorrectly. The asking price of $37,500 for an '06 X-45 with "96 hours" should tell you all you need to know.... Best of luck.

Scam, that boat was for sale here by my local dealer. It was sold only a month or so ago and it was an 06.

I saw you out on Monona on Sunday watching the Mad City Ski Show. Your boat on the water looks seriously Bad A$$. Did you notice the look alike boat that was out there on Sunday? I didn't get close enough to see what manufacturer it was, but it has a similar gel coat scheme to the 40th, but looks like a tank.

Thanks for the info, guys. I thought that was the case, but I thought I would ask the pros.

I didn't notice it. There was a nice silver flake 45 out that looked nice. Thanks for the compliment!
