Just curious of how rare an X-9 or 209 with the 6.0 is. Does anyone have one or know someone that has one equipped with the 6.0
I may consider one this yr or next if I could find one with the 6.0. Of course, I would also consider the X-14 with the 6.0 depending on price.

Did you get down to Nashville last weekend for the boat show? That would have been a good question for the MC guys. Out of curiousity, why are you only considering the 6.0?

Cannot help but thought I share that we had an x9 with the 8.1 for barefooting couple years ago :D

Wasn't able to make it. I'm currently working in PA. Just wanting alittle more hp for barefooting. I'm sure the mcx would be fine and the X-9 is not a barefoot boat but I've had the 197 with a 6.0 and would not have anything less in it and with 2 kids I would like alittle more room than the 197.

Gotcha. If you do have issues finding the 6.0, you could always "settle" on the 5.7 and talk to OJ about a better prop. I have the X-30 and the 5.7 pushes it around just fine with the ballast and all. However, if I could afford the engine and the gas, you better believe I would have the 8.1 in it lol

I have an x9 with 330 LTR and badass cnc 3 blade acme I bought off someone on this board... I weigh 200 and foot long line with up to 5 ppl in boat. No spray in face.

It was kind of too much, everything was vibrating when that block was started. Hitting down the trottle felt like if the prop was not in wather but in concrete, if you know what I mean.

In my point of view the 6.0 is/was the best motor in their lineup...

We've got a 2002 X-9 with the LQ9. It's a great engine, very smooth, very responsive to the throttle. Never had any real problms with it.

I'm with you on the mcx. I had it in a X45 that was lost in the flood in 2010. It was okay with stock prop unless I filled all the factory balladt and filled additional 2000lbs of ballast with 10 people then it would not get on plain but could have been reproped.
I wouldn't think that the mcx would really push the X9 over 43 to 45 even with a different prop. I'm sure we will get some more input on that as well. Just getting a feel as to how hard this boat may be to find. I've got a 190 with the 454 I might just get another X45 and keep the 190 for footin.

What is your top speed and are you running the stock prop? What size prop?

It was in my shop. We live along the river in Ashland City and the water came up so fast over night that we were not able to get the boats or anything else out. Search X45 nashville flood and you should find the thread with pictures.

Yeah, the water did come up quick. I'm just down the river a few miles from you on the other side of the dam.

We had about 14ft of water on my property.
I used to ski below the dam some before I bought my house. I would put in at the conservation club.

Awesome, we ride from the conservation club down past riverside and down to the steam plant when we're on the river. We need to get together some time, whether you're in the 190 or the new 45...lol

I don't see me buying a new X45 maybe a used one in another year or 2 but I'll PM you sometime this summer if we come down that way to check out the new marina or shoot me one if you get up this way.

GPS'd 46 mph all day long with LTR 330

If the LTR or MCX will push it 45 to 46 and hold it with a 200lbs footer and 2 or 3 adults in the boat then I would definitely consider it but would still prefer the 6.0 if I could find one.

I barefooted behind a 209, 5 adults in the boat with the 310 motor. I go about 210 and did not have a problem. If i was looking the MCX would be fine.

I've never even seen one with a 6.0. Bring me a big bag of cash and you can have one with a 5.7 merc. Happy medium :)

I'm sure you know this, but prop is key. Picked up a couple mph on the top and better holeshot when ballasted with the 3 blade acme over the stock 13x13.

I can bring a big bag of cash but it will not be full of cash. Not looking to purchase right now. I'm looking to buy a lot on the water that is dock permittable if I'm able to find what I want in my price range I will probably keep the 190 and just get another X45 for cruising, surfing and wakeboarding.

Definately props will make some difference but I've owned the 02 X7 with the 310hp predator engine and a 03 197 with the 6.0, based on my experence with the previous models and engines I think I would prefer to have the 6.0. If and when I do get serious about purchasing I will definately look at any with the ltr or mcx due to the limited to no availability of one with the 6.0

I would love to foot behind a 209 w/ 6.0 to see what it is like. I love footing behind mine, just need a long rope, at least 85-90 ft. With just a driver or one other person the boat is so quick I can stand up as fast as I want.

Neighbor has a X9 with MCX, doesn't really seem any faster than mine. Need to foot behind it for the comparison.

X9 is perfect boat for me- room for a small crowd, plenty of wake for scarecrows and back rolls, and plenty fast for 'footin.

Nothing wrong with two boats though :cool:

Just bringing this thread back to the top. Based on posts I think there is 2 with 6.0 and 1 with 8.1 so far know to be out there.

Found one forsale with 6.0 but I think it is priced alittle high. Anyone know this boat?

well im not standing up for 20 minutes. That boat looks clean and well taken care of. The 51 hours is scary but who knows. Yes they are highly overpriced. I'm not even sure if you could get them to reasonable. But seriously that thing is sexy

I was thinking 30 to 32K tops with tower and 6.0. I would probably be interested at about 28

Is it the Sammy Duvall edition that comes with the biggest engine offered? Or did they offer different engines in the SD prostars?

I'm pretty sure it not a SD just 209 with the optional 6.0L and tower. The 310 predator would have been standard with mcx, 6.0 and 8.1 being optional upgrades.

I'm currently on the Cumberland in Ashland City at river marker 155 but I'm not allow to have a dock since the street splits the property. Commodore Yacht Club is at marker 172 and Rock Harbor is at 175. Gid lives by Commodore. So, PM me this summer. Maybe we can get a few MC owners in the area together.

214 or X14 will definately be taken into consideration depending on price when the time comes.
