I'd like to see pics of the bow thrusters on the 55. I've never heard of them on one, must look pretty unique.
That is a factory option. I know it was available last year, but not sure about the year before.

Hmmm - I got to drive an X55 2 years ago at Cincy MC on water days, it is a big boat, but really no more difficult to dock then my X25. Heck, coming from an X2 to a 25, sure the 25 is not as nimble, but not a lot different once you get/understand the basic principle of docking an inboard.

Wow, I didn't know that. It wasn't an option a few years ago when we were looking at it. I'd still like to see that set up.

WHAT?!?!? I can't believe you typed that a G was better than a X series. What has this world come to????? And we both know any good driver can dock a X-55. Bow thrusters are for yachts.

HAHAHA!! For the record I didn't say the G25 was better that the X55 (even though it is).

As for the X30 vs 230, I couldn't tell you. Haven't been in the new 230, but CC has definitely stepped their game up in the past two years.
