13 X30 v Nautique G23

Test drove both today...Both very different rides and TOTALLY different wakes. X30 was significantly cheaper... Any opinions? I'd really like to hear what you guys know or have heard. This will be my first boat and focus will be on surfing as much as boarding.
Thnx!

If you have the budget to go after a G23 you should test drive a comparable MC and then decide.

Xstar would be more comparable to G23 but would like to hear your thoughts on each boat.

Or X46.... Although, that will be cheaper than a G23 as well.

In my opinion unless you are a hardcore wake boarder why spend the cash on a G23, x-30 has a fantastic surf wake as well as being a great all around boat. I'm sure the G23 does not have a ski wake. Save the cash and you can use the x30 for other activities as well.

Yeah, I would say if you are a hardcore boarder and have the cash flow then compare a x46 or xstar to the g23. Other wise compare the new sn 210 or similar to the x30 for a more all around boat.

Can you share the price ranges you saw on the x30 & g23? Were they equally optioned?

I was thinking maybe the 230 was a good comp to the X30,but they didn't have one to drive. Both boats I drove and played with we're demos with less than 20hrs, with meaningful diff in prices. G was better optioned, but most were came standard...230 is prob $20k less than the G
