Been boating since 1985 and have never owned a MC before. I spent over 3 months testing many new boats before deciding on my X-25. It also took several calls from my dealer to the Factory because when I went to order they through an 8% across the board price increase at me. So it was a battle somewhat to get the price back to where I was comfortable. In the end I paid about 5-8 K over what a Tige would have cost me and I ended up with a X-25 heavily optioned and a Power Tower and upgraded engine.
Being able to order what I want in the color I want is the only way I would spend this kind of money on a new boat ... otherwise used only !
