'07 X Star, Red & white, great condition, MCX, 4 Tower Speakers, 417 hours.

I see people asking anywhere from $44k to $60k for their similar boats...just wondering what I will really get out of it if I sell it.

Thanks for your input!

It's worth whatever potential buyers are willing to pay for it...

Big difference between a Star and an X2.

I have been shopping for a year, and looked at several 06-07 X-Stars. The boats I looked at were always between $42,000 and $49,000.
Lower hour 6.0L versions seemed to closer to $50+

pictures of boat, running gear, motor, do you have a meticulous maintenance log? Economy on the mend... (ok kinda) - better prices in a 12-15 weeks...

Info for the OP says the boat is "sold"
Wonder how much it went for?
IMHO there seem to be quite a few X-stars for sale at fairly reasonable prices.
(guess I'll be keeping my '05 for a while then!)

Just an FYI update...I ordered a new '14 pretty much completely loaded and got what I felt was a respectable deal, so in my negotiations to buy the new boat, I used my current boat as a means by which to negotiate. I took a total cost approach in looking at the overall deal, what that means is that, by trading it in when I did, I avoided having to spend the money to keep it insured, winterize it, have it detailed, store it indoors, fix the prop, repair a couple of scratches, fix the broken trailer connection and lighting, replace the cover which got ripped badly right at the end of the season...plus didn't to have the pain in advertising it or selling it, and got the trade in differential tax avoidance off the purchase of the new boat. All told I would have had to have sold my boat next spring for $45,000 next spring to break even with where we shook out. (which I probably could have done easily) For not having to deal with it, to me I felt it was fair and worth it. The dealer is asking $49,000 after he cleaned it all up...it will be a great boat for somebody, I sure loved it!
