2013 X25 vs X30

I would like your opinions on the 2013 X25 vs X30. My wife and I are looking at purchasing a NEW boat and we had a X30 out for the day last weekend, we fell in love with the boat. I know the pickle fork style has been a huge success, but I really like the new X30 / X10. What do you guys think. X30 seems to be better pricing and has some of the options of the X-Star IE the new convertible rear seat etc.

What do you do for water sports?


Do you want the amazing legacy X-25
Or the awesome new X-30.

Both are great options depending what you do.

If you are a very serious wakeboarder, go with the X25.

If you are a recreational wakeboarder, and also like to surf...... Either one is going to be excellent.

Also, the X25 is 21.5' whereas the X30 is 23'. So if your limited to storage space, the X25 may be a good choice. I would suggest taking a X25 for a test drive so that you can experience both.

x30

My wife and i Love ours. Great Surf Wake, Great Wakeboard wake, and We like the Ski Wake better than the one our our X14V. Be sure to get the trim tab. I am having surf tabs installed now at Portland Ski Boat Center, so we will have to see if that makes a big difference on the surf wake. I wouldnt go any smaller that the 6.0 motor. My boat will be there until Saturday if you want to go take a look at it.
