That is a classic hull that is great all around. here is a few links for your viewing pleasure.

I have the same hull similar color combo, I think there is better color combos but Im not sure what combinations were offered in what years.

Along with the other advice here, make sure the trailer checks out as well, that can cost you large to bring it back to standard if it has not been maintained, I made that mistake....to obsessed checking the boat.

Also nice to factor in extras like does it have a heater/showers if that means anything to you, check the cover out, those can cost you as well and should be considered in your budget if you need to purchase aftermarket.

I sold my 2000 Sea Ray Bowrider with the small engine (3.0L) for $8,500 last Fall. Got a 2004 X-10 to replace it. I agree with the people on the list - - - you won't regret moving to a MC.

Let us know how it goes for you.

Looks like the X-Star has been well maintained.... That being said I would have it inspected by a MasterCraft dealer and have a compression check performed.... You will notice a huge difference between the SeaRay and the MasterCraft.... I think you will be extremely happy..... Keep us posted.....

Thats a nice boat and it looks to be in good shape. My boat is the same hull and its great for wakeboarding and it works for surfing with lots of weight added. I wouldnt hesitate to buy it if it checks out ok. To be honest, if it wasn't 3200 km away i'd probably be interested in it myself.

Don't take this the wrong way....but your Sea Ray is not a ski boat. Yes the wake is smaller than a big inboard, but it's just a runabout more or less.

On a more positive note, you will love the switch from your current boat to an 03 Star. Do keep in mind that the 03 and newer Star are not known to be great surf boats.

I was going to say something similar. A direct drive, or V-drive MasterCraft is just totally different in the way it pulls, handles, etc. compared to an I/O. And all in a good way. Except that first time you hit reverse and turn the wheel, expecting the stern to move wheelside But that's easily overcome with some thought and practice!

If you love watersports, you will love a MasterCraft.

Good luck!

It sounds like you have found a boat that fits your needs and that hull is arguably the most versatile MC ever made. The only concern with that boat is between 99 and through about 03, the vinyl in those years wasn't the best so check the condition of the seats carefully. Other than that, the build is second to none. Good luck!
