So I've been looking for a X-Star/X-2/X-1 for some time now, and have come across this '01 X-Star in Rogers, AR. 294 Hours, $33,000.

http://www.skiandsports.net/pre_owned_detail.asp?sid=06529352X6K8K2011J10I01I1 1JPMQ2674R0&veh=2143012

Does that seem right at all, or too high? I've seen prices all over the place for this hull. Any advice?

Thanks

Thats an old boat for that kind of loot. You for sure could find an X1 2006 or 2007 model for close to that or a bit more. An X2 in the 2006 model is going to run you around 40k best case scenario. Keep looking, my opinion.

Dang, not many out there to choose from...This one is local to me. Let me know if you want me to check it out for you. Key word, 'flexible' on pricing

You might keep looking. I got my 01 X10 330hp Indmar with 100 hours for $26k. If I'm not mistaking it's the same hull as the early Xstars?

You are mistaken. He is right, X-Star, X-2, X-1, same hull. Love the boat. Love X-10 hull, too. One of the most underrated in the MC lineup....

If you need someone to look at that boat in Rogers for you let me know. My boat is actually in that shop right now getting some work done.

The boat is priced correctly for the time of year which translates into it being priced too high for anyone looking for a fair/good deal. Unless you really need/want a boat for this season I'd pass, another better deal will be around. Boat prices (at least around here) will start falling again in August and will plummet in September - October.

I sold a 03 X2 with 125 hours two years ago for $32K and followed that by buying an 07 X2 a week later for $40K. I sold and made my purchase in early March.

seems a bit high in my book ... agree, the nose damage seems like boat buddy was hungry or dock rash. Pics on the water, different registration than those on trailer (appears to be different state sticker).

a couple in my area that recently hit the Austin TX craigslist...

'04 X2 comes with slip on Lake Austin $33,900 (Austin, TX) ... I think I looked at this same boat 2 years ago (was then priced at $36K?), only issue I had was no trailer and I thought it was a bit over priced. I am guessing the reasoning for being re-painted was it living in a slip, with bottom scum/algea.

'99 X-Star with trailer $17,500 ... no mention of hours. I also think I looked at this boat which was on consignment at the Austin MC Dealer, Boat Town, 2 years ago. One of my concerns was the early era seating does not have the wrap-around down the side (limited seating), fair condition (when I looked at it, if it is the same boat?). Appears to be on consignment again in Burnet, TX (my home town).

http://austin.craigslist.org/boa/2427005305.html and more info at http://youparkwesell.com/detail.html?id=4dee9a8346bb9

if interested, I could take a look at either of these for more details and/or pictures...

That seems really high. Check inboardsonly.com they usually have a large number of postings, and can be searched by state...

Priced pretty high and as I stated in a similar post a few weeks ago, I was offered upper $30's for my 2007 X1 with less than 100 hours a few weeks ago and thought it was a fair offer but I am not really looking to sell. BTW, I am located in the south and used boat values are holding up pretty well down here.

On the other hand, the dude looks like he has $5k+ in stereo equipment and probably another $1K+ in upgraded ballast.

Wow -- thanks for the plug, LaRue. I didn't want to cross the line and pimp my own sale outside of the sales thread but since you mentioned it for me :) ....... I finally decided this week that it was time to get off my butt and get the X2 sold. Been having too much fun with the X25 to deal with it but this boat is too nice for someone not to use this summer.

Both of those X2's look really nice. I also found an 06 X1 in Reno, NV for $35k, but the problem with anything that far west is shipping. Got a quote for $2 a mile, which is a lot for the 2,000mi trip from Reno to Nashville. Trying to stick to one within driving range.

That is definitely high. I have a loaded 2005 X2 with under 200 hrs that I would sell for that, and I don't think my boat is a bargain at that price.

$2 mile is high, you can do a lot better.

Prices seem to be going back up. Last year there were a couple of 06 X1's that went for less than 30k. No more now!
