The yellow 05' X2 in OP Kansas - I know the guy who owns this boat. We considered buying it this summer. It is showroom condition, his price is firm and he is a total straight shooter. He brings his ATV's into my shop for repair - Dan is a maintenance freak - Always repairs everything, NEVER shortcuts. Even though the price is at the top of the range, we considered buying it - But I found a SWEET Loaded 07' X2 for the same money.

Thanks TTU will look into that one! How long will the MCX motors last, hour wise?

Neil: Did you get a chance to test drive it? Any other details I should know about? Congrats on the '07! I hate to pay this much for an 05 when I can get an '07 for that kind of money!

Well there's your local guy that's seen the boat. Go get it!
As far as a new style X2, you'll wait a while to find a nice low hr one for less than $40k if at all.
You could easily broaden your search by upping the acceptable hours. 100 hrs isn't even broke in. Engine and drive train are good for 1500-2000 hrs easy if taken care of.

Here's an '06 for $39.5 in KC, no affiliation, but in my opinion, if you're going to drop that much on a used boat, might was as well consider going for the newer body style.

The wakeboard wake on the 2003-2005 X2/X1/205V hull is far superior to that of the 2006+ X2. The newer X2's have a lot more room and other nice features, but if he is mainly using it for wakeboarding, I would not consider a newer X2.

We didn't take it out. However, the thing looks like it was just delivered. If you go to his house (ESTATE) to check it out you'll understand why it's in like new shape. take a napkin to dap the drool off your chin.
Nice thing is that you have options - '05 X2 has some benefits over new body X2 and visa-versa. There are lots of boats for sale in our area. Weigh your options and pick what is best for you and the family. (We also have a 1st generation Xstar, same as 05 X2 and current X1)It's a fantastic boat as well. The 07 X2 has the extra room we needed up front. $39,500, 300 hours, maintained by our regular mechanic at Ski and Sports, so we had some benefit knowing mechanical history.

When you pick one out, we really LOVE the people at Ski and Sports in Shellknob, MO. They ROCK!! Go to their MC reunion in June. Last year 200+ boats and the MC tour stop same weekend.

Rad... The one in Lee's Summit is worth looking at. It's a decent boat with 300+ hours. Lots of options with the right motor. I don't know much about the dealer, they are right off of the 435.
