Best Mastercraft Crossover?
 
We're looking for a good crossover boat. Interested in Mastercraft. I was a skier growing up but haven't been on a ski in 15 years. We want a good sized family boat and one that will be a good ski and wakeboard boat. I don't want a pure ski boat, but I want to be able to ski. We will have several beginner (adult and children) skiers. We are a family of four but have 6 additional adults and 3 additional children in our family living nearby. It would be nice to get as many family members on the boat at one time as possible. So there's a total of 8 adults and 5 kids. I'm sure we will do a lot of tubing and eventually the kids will get into wakeboarding. Looking at used boats. Price isn't a huge issue but don't want to spend over $50k. Been researching the X30, 25, 15. Any suggestions? Thank you.

I bought an '01 Prostar 205v last spring and we're happy with it. My son is just learning on a wakeboard and skis and I'm an ok skier so without water in the bags the wake is not too bad for skiing but the bags do a good job for someone with a little experience on a wakeboard.
Where in Ar. are you? We go to Greers Ferry quite a bit.

I would be looking at the 214/214v or the x14/x14.

The best crossover in a direct drive would be a 209/X9 or Prostar 205.

But since you need space for 8 adults and 5 kids you should look at an X30 ('06 or newer)
An attitude adjustment plate should help the slalom wake, but don't expect it to be great like a direct drive....still much better than any I/O though. You should be able to find one under $50K.

Looks like plenty of X-30's to choose from.....happy shopping!

Maybe look for a Maristar 240? Hard to find but it's a 24' direct drive boat. Not sure how the ski wake is though.

How much is the X15? My money would be on that. Doesn't sound like he's looking at direct drive boats, which is very wise with all those people.

I love the room in my X-10. Granted we haven't yet skied behind it, due to the fact I bought it late in the 2012, but we loved the passenger room and storage in our 2004 X-10. I know it will do a nice job for our wakeboarders and have been told it will be more than acceptable for recreational skiers.

We had a '05 X9 - LOVED IT!!! It came down to a space issue. Great ski and ride boat. My son is an agressive rider and was able to do land flips. I would take a hard look at the X14. A friend has a '05 X10 and loves it.
6 people in our family - We went to a 07 X2
