I really do not see them updating the X-25 within the next two years. In order to have the convertible rear seat, the entire top deck would have to be re-tooled.

I was fairly surprised as well. Oddly, my '11 would go 50 on GPS, but my '12 could only muster 47mph. Still fast for that boat..... And pretty much useless, as I only went over 30 about .0001% of the time.

I was heard that the 2012 had a little more hook in the back to help with porpoising. That is probably why there is a difference in top speed.

Did you demo the X10? If so, how was the surf and wakeboard wake? I've yet to see one in person.

considering upgrading vlx to new x25! wake pics?

Hi,

i am new to this site. i currently have an 06 wakesetter vlx running around 4000lb of ballast. i have heard alot of good things about the mastercraft x25 and am looking at buying one that is in stock at the local dealer with the 6l engine. i just have a few questions. how does this boat handle ballast i.e what is the wake going to be like with 4000lb? and does anyone have any pics they can upload of an x25 wake with alot of ballast? i have been searching the net for days and can only find wakesurfing pics and vids other than the mastercraft adds. An in boat shot of the wake should give me an indication. i havent test driven one yet though i am assuming the dealers would be hesitant of letting you slam their brand new boats with a heap of ballast.

thanks in advance for your help

ashley

That's a monster surf wave! Let's be friends!

I went with the 30 for three reasons, I think it drives better (more nimble), it was more cost effective, and I prefer the looks of it. As someone said previously the 30 does ride lower in the water so it is easier to swamp the front end if you turn into your surf wake and come off power...

The 6.0 is plenty powerful for the 30, however, it is very hard to beat the fuel mileage, smoothness, and reliability of the Gen IV SBC.



I have spent a considerable amount of time behind both properly weighted. I couldnt really say that either surf wake was better than the other. One big thing that I did notice, is that you have to be a lot more careful with the 30 to avoid swamping it. It is easily managable, but you cant just turn into the oncoming wave when picking up a downed rider. As long as we turn the 25 to starboard (when surfing port), it never puts water over the bow when we turn immediately around. With the 30, we just wait for the last ripple to go by, and then spin it around.... No biggie.

Wakeboard wake on the two boats is hugely different.
what was the cost upgrade for the 6.2(cost not MSRP)???
