View Full Version : Best boat for a buddy of mine

I have a buddy that just sold his 04 x-star because he wanted a more "all around boat". He is looking for something that is no more than 5 years old, around the 22 - 23 foot range. Surfing is the main thing they like to do and he is looking for a boat that surfs well on both sides. Any suggestions?

I personally would say the X-15 (we have an 08 and love it), It's not 22ft but darn close and hold 14 people. Can surf both sides and also has a decent wakeboard wake.

New X-30s are even better for surfing and boarding

'06-up X-30 seems to be a logical choice. Not sure how well it surfs both sides, maybe some owners can chime in.

He should look at Centurion if surfing is his primary interest.

The wakeboard ramp is very peaky with a lot of kick but surf wake is great.

an 04 star??? that's exactly the opposite of all-around... the ONLY thing that boat does well (and does very, very, very well mind you) is throw a good wakeboard wake (i should know... i have one of those hulls)

if he's looking for 22-23 feet, check out a new X30... could probably get something new in his price range

He decided to sign today on the 2013 x10. I can't wait to see what this boat can do.

Here's a cell phone shot of the boat on the show room floor. This should be a fun summer, now our boat rotation goes My 2002 x-star, my brother in laws Malibu VLX and now Erics 2013 x-10. We all win.

Very nice boat! I saw that boat on the floor at the Utah Boat Show!

Curious about that new tower! How does it fold? Awesome boat for sure!

I could be wrong, but I don't think that tower folds. It's a value model, not sure of the zft# designation.

The tower has a bolt that comes out of the rear base and folds backwards.
