Skiing off of the 2003 X-2 - Today's X-1
 
I'm looking to upgrade my existing boat to a Mastercraft. I'm looking for a good ski boat that can crossover for wake boarding and wake surfing. My concern is that the wake on these type of boats might be to hard at 30 to 33mph. From my understanding, the 2003 and 2004 X-2 is todays X-1 hull. Also, I was told that the X-1 and older X-2 was the 205V hull. Has anyone Slalom skied off of the 2003 or 2004 X-2, X-1 or 205V?

Also does anyone know of any older Mastercrafts that might fit the role as a crossover? Ideally I'm looking for a V-Drive as I would like a boat that can pop the bow out of the water at low speeds. I boat in Long Island Sound and it's not uncommon to have a 4 foot wake from a 50 footer role by you. With my Supra, you can take blue water over the bow and windshield.

Thanks :D

i own a 2003 X-2. bought it from original owner last april. we love it.

i can't really comment on the skiing, but i think anything above 32mph on that hull is considered decent among many here. someone will be by along shortly who can comment.

i can tell you that the wake for wakeboarding on this boat is incredible. even with no ballast the wake is plenty big and firm at lower speeds (19-21mph). add ballast and it's insane (coming from a novice i should probably add).

the bow is also easy to pop up quickly as you mentioned.

the wake surf can be decent, but it's not the boat's strongest suit.

good luck!

The 205V hull is probably the best crossover v-drive in the MC lineup.

The ski wake at 32MPH is not competition quality but is not large on the 2006 X1. It is a comptetion grade wake at 35mph+. My group ski's wakeboards and surfs and the X1 is the best hull for all but not the best hull for skiing if you want a competition wake. I weigh 195lbs and can't move it so it tracks great.(some would say it is the best wakboard short of the X-star)

I had a 2005 X2 (same hull) and I totally agree. Great boarding wake at 19 to 23 mph, very skiable wake at 32 to 35 mph. But, like most good ski boats, it is a small boat. Not great in chop, but then who likes to ski or ride in chop. Handles like a dream.

Is the Tri-Star, a V-Drive or Direct Drive? Also, where is your boat located. I believe my profile allows you to email, just in case you have more details on this boat for sale.

I skied behind an 06 X1 last weekend and it was surprisingly nice! I've never skied behind anything but comp boats so I was surprised with the quality of the wakes. I didn't get to run through the course but for free skiing it was great!
