Why do you need to test drive a X-25 when you already have two 220's? It is the exact same hull just in a v drive.

I think you may be confusing the 2 previous posters.

I'm in the market for a new X-25, will take a 2013 or 2014, whatever makes more sense (value). Please suggest what these should be going for this late in the season, and would it be beneficial to wait for the boat show and order s 2014? Please advise, thanks in advance. Anyone who has ordered one in the last 18 months and are willing to share those numbers, it would help, thanks.

Here are some considerations.

2012 has the Medallion System and as many complaints as there has been, as long as you get the newer software and zero-off it is decent and the system works well. I don't want to spark a long debate on it but it has worked well for me in the past 225 hrs.

The problem is when you go to add piggy back the 2012 ballast systems to the existing tanks there is very little support to do it. It can be done and thanks to the help from Stefan I have done it. But the timer values can erase themselves after a service where the battery is disconnected or a reset is done. Think winterization etc... So based on that alone, unless you buy the tool (500.00) and don't mind programming the timers every now and then or add a separate system with timers..., (account for 2000.00 of negative value to a 2012 for this inconvenience to account for it and you'll be fine). I think with the depreciation of a 2012, might be a wash anyway.

For the 2013's the updated visual queues such as the step pad design, updated Murphy system with separate physical buttons on the dash to control volume and various digital virtual features ( including ballast timers) as well as squared off more modern handrails I think you're going to find with tax prices of about 10-12k more than a 2012 if you're able to compare two boats same hours and features. I think, but am not 100%, that the 2013's come standard with Zero Off. Finally, the 13's have a bit better trailer design with longer steps at the back and some visual lighting queues.

Keep in mind, when comparing boat to boat, that some small features will still run you big dollars to add today to either model year. Two cans vs four ... Pro pkg with zf4 vs zf2 no tracking fins, rear facing lights, u/w lights, stereo upgrades. Those are worth 6-10k all together to the right buyer.

Next consideration would be warranty, the 2012/13's have a similar warranty and would be based on the date of original purchase - so consider that date and the remaining time.

As I understand it, the warranty on the 2014 is 5 years bow-to-stern which is an improvement and again will give you better resale by $5k (estimate) in 2-3 years when the 12/13's have certain components that aren't covered. When the ad says 2years bumper to bumper remaining - that makes a difference.

I'd also consider 2014 to be a better year based on the newer surf package and 3-4 years of development with Ilmor and a year of development with Murphy. I think you'll pay a higher price for a 14 compared to a 13 ( at least 10-15k) at this time of year.

Finally, customization, if you order a 14, you'll be able to pick all aspects of the boat. That experience alone may help sell your significant other on this purchase.

Caveat on my numbers: mileage will vary and depending on the dealer and market ... There can be a big delta in pricing.

Edit:

Caveat #2 ...I missed the motor and that changes things a lot...

5.7 to 6.0 add 4-6K
6.0 to 6.2 add 4-6K again
6.2 to 7.4 add 6-8k more

The 5.7 to 7.4 upgrade is 12-20k depending on your deal.

So if you look at a used 5.7 2012 with no pro pkg and compare to a new 2014 with a 7.4 (would be over kill) the delta could be as much as 30-40k...

I see you're from Marco. My family has a condo down there. I'll have to give you a call next time we are down.

This has been a fantastic resource and wonderful learning experience, appreciate all the advice and PM's so far!
It seems that the partially redesigned 2013 is worth the extra money over the 2012's that have issues with the BIG screen etc.
Actual real world sales figures for recent x25's help out a lot, keep those PM's coming :)
Can someone shed light on the 5/3 warranty for a 2013 VERSUS a 5/5 warranty on a 2014 if at all this exists? If I got a 2013, should i get the FPC extended warranty from the dealer, or something else?
You all rock!

Warranty Info... BTW I've been very pleased with MC response on warranty.

BTW I've been very pleased with MC response on warranty.

I think KahunaCraft wrote a good summary of the '12 vs '13 vs '14 models, and has an excellent point above on MC warranty response... so I wonder if now may be the time to get deals on the '12's.

By all accounts on TT with the '12 owners, the '12 issues seem to have been resolved with the software updates. And MasterCraft will not leave the '12 unsupported in the future. However the '12 model year has a reputation in the marketplace, and are perhaps undervalued as a result. The bottom line is while the control system is different, the engine, transmission, most of the gauges and instrumentation, and frankly the rest of the boat, is identical.

Perhaps the best deal out on a newer boat at the moment is a '12. Hammer on the price because of the 'issues', and then enjoy the lower price you paid on a newer boat that works just as well because MC has solved the problems.

I am based on Lake Austin.
So these boats came with a 5/3 warranty in 2012 and its now a 5/5 for 2014 is that correct?
