X-35 and X-45 High Altitude Engine size

I am looking for people at high altitude, I mostly do my boating between 3600 ft (Lake Powell) and 6000 ft (Bear Lake). I currently have an X15 with the MCX and for the most part it does a good job. We have decided to upgrade to a larger boat. My price range puts me in the 2008-2010 model years for either an X35 or X45. I need some advice on the engine size I should be looking for.

Some information to help, we surf a lot, my wife skis, and we all wakeboard, tube, and cruise around the lake. We spend 2-3 weeks/year at Lake Powell so open cruising with a loaded boat it important.

You boaters in Utah what is your experience? Thanks in advance for your help.
