The X15 is a far better built boat than the LSV. And, the MasterCraft's usually hold their book value more than an Malibu boat. My lake neighbor is a loan officer and can tell atest to this too. There is a 23LSV 2012 down the way from us out on Lake Wissota - which can be choppy with traffic, wind and all - the LSV sounds like a toolbox with "loose bolts and nuts" banging around...and the floors squeek for some reason too. But you know, the LSV is not comparable to the X15...it is more like the room of an X30 boat. My two cents.
