I'm looking at purchasing a 2006 X30 and have obtained the service records from the dealer. There doesn't seem to be anything major but its not a perfectly clean record.

Things like the owner running it out of fuel so it needed a new fuel pump, new starter coil, and a note that when the boat was taken in on consignment both the engine and transmission oil were low and dirty. It has approx. 250 hours.

I did a test drive the other day. The boat is clean, drives nice, and everything seems to be in good working condition. Its the original owner...just didn't receive the kind of TLC I like to give my boat, but the dealer has cleaned it up nicely.

I can get the boat for $39000. Should I run away or go for it?

pics? 2nd gen X30's can be tough to find for less than $40K so $39K isn't bad if there are no major issues.

The Texas Ski Ranch is a great dealer in my opinion. I am only about 5 miles from them and they have been a big help with my '86. Like jafo9 suggested posting pics to see if anyone here knows the history of the boat. Do you know if the boat was stored on Lake Dunlap?

I agree with you on TX Ski Ranch...I have been super impressed with their knowledge and I like their style. The boat was on Lake Travis. Original owner purchased it from TX Ski Ranch and kept it on Lake Travis.

I have seen quite a few posts from members in Austin. Someone will probably be able to give you some history on it. I have seen a few "time share" boats on Travis on Craigslist over the years, so you might want to check to make sure it was not one of them. I asked about Lake Dunlap because of the flood a couple of summers ago and a lot of boats were damaged. Best of luck on whichever decision you make!

I wouldn't worry about it too much. I see a lot of boats and you described 90% of the boats I see.

Dealer has cleaned it up, you will take care of it and she will take care of you :D

If you're nervous about it, buy a MC 3 plus 3 extended warranty at time of purchase. You should be about get one that covers everything or one that covers just the engine and tranny.

Thanks! I'm getting tired of trying to find the other 10% ...and if I do, I'm sure I'll have to pay more!

Or, you could by my 07 for $46K. It is in the 10% club

Yep, this is the 10% I'm talking about! :D A little dusting and she is in showroom condition! Original owner was more anal than me. 'No step' on the fenders and 'please remove shoes' on the transom. The buyer wants a teak platform, too. Why? Who knows, just because.....He wants a fiberglass platform and a teak platform. I would, too. You got it, no problem!

Really nice boat. Noticed that it doesn't have PP. Can't imagine putting on all those expensive options and leaving off PP.

Wow, I can't imagine buying a boat like that and only putting 42 hours on it in 5 years. I think I put that on my X2 the first month I had it. I do like the windshield tint. If I was in the market, that would be at the top of the list. $60k seems a bit high though.

Texas ski ranch has a great service department, did you speak with Service or sales?

I am good friends with the Service manager and I will ask him his opinion on the boat.

compression test is critical. nothing else much matters unless it has been in salt water.

Someone bought it, I asked them about it today and they said the guy just wanted to get rid of it due to no time. He had it on consignment at TSR. hope you bought it, sounds like it was a good deal
