2015 X-46 6.0 Advice

Hey everybody, Iím looking for some advice. I am looking at a 2015 X-46 w/ 100 hrs. It is super clean and is the perfect color scheme we want and has all the major options as well. The only downside to the boat is that it has the 6.0 engine. Iím not sure if this should be of concern to me as most of the other 46ís Iíve priced have the 6.2. I personally, donít need the power but I am more concerned that it will hurt me on re-sell. I was just curious what the general consensus of the 6.0 is on a boat that size, is it ample, or will it be sluggish. I live in Georgia so altitude is not an issue. Thanks in advance for the responses.

That is a lot of boat for a 6.0, which I have and love in my X10. You know the answer on resale already ... just a matter of how the residual valve will be viewed at a future time by the next owner

Have you driven it with it fully loaded ... people and ballast and see how it drives?

A good prop can fix almost anything. If the boat is otherwise perfect and you donít plan on selling in the next year or two, the engine would be the least of my concerns. IMHO

Thanks for the replies! I have not driven the boat bc it's 6 hours away, so I'm hesitant to drive that far without knowing. I should mention that I'm not against paying a little more to have the 6.2, I just haven't found one I like as far as colors and low engine hours close enough to me. I also should mention that of all the boats that I've found with the 6.2 have been more expensive, of course, so I feel like I'm getting a fair deal. That being said, I guess I am asking if the 6.0 is an undesirable engine in a boat of that size and will it ultimately turn people off on it when I go to re-sale even if it is priced in line? Hopefully what I am saying makes sense, thanks again!

Like in your case right now, a X46 with the 6.0 will have to be perfect for most people to buy it and priced lower.

Before my x23, I had a X45 and it had the 6.2. The X45 that we tested at the time had the 6.0 and with a group of people running full ballast, the boat struggled enough to make us purchase an X45 with the 6.2. Sure you can change the prop, but then that will raise your RPMs and effectively increase your gas usage along with reducing the top speed.


I have the 6.2 now in my X23 and I couldn't imagine having anything less. The X46 is a foot and a half longer and only a couple hundred pounds lighter. If your buying a boat to keep for a while, I would hold off and look for a X46 with the 6.2L in your color choices.

A X46 with the 6.2 will not necessarily bring in a lot more money than one equally equipped with the 6.0, but I would think it would sell quicker as most would prefer the 6.2 given the choice.

whats HP/torq specs 6.0 v 6.2? I cant believe its that much diff that the prop wouldn't solve it? I'd look at the cost diff if you were buying new to start. If as you say its already trading at discount, then bid far enough back that you're indifferent. Either way, the older the boat gets, depreciation will reduce the discount imposed IMO. I have the 6.2 in my X30, but lots of guys running 5.7s and have no complaints. You
need to drive both tho to see for yourself.

Prop can definitely fix the lack of power. But, resale will be very difficult
