Wakemakers has an incredible upgrade for the PnP bags thatíll add 1600 lbs to the lockers!

With that being said, Iíd go with a Gen2 X30 if youíre looking for more room, or give the X10 a shot. You can pick one up with Gen2 (2014 or so) if your range if you look

I second giving the X10 a look if you are already considering an X30, solid boat for sure. Should be able to find one a model year or so newer compared to an X30 for the same price and likely with some factory warranty remaining.

We don't need a "big" boat so I am sure the X10 is large enough so long as it makes a decent surf wave. I am a sucker for the pickle fork design which may be what is limiting my choices in my head. I am going to have to put my eyes on a Gen 2 surf X10-X30.

I also struggled with that decision as I like the look of the pickle fork bow. I ultimately went with the X10 because its a good all around boat and I was able to get a brand new one at a good price. Mine is a 2015 with gen 2, stock ballast.

Which all around boat for ~$65-70k

There was a 2014 X-30 with Gen2 and around 370 hrs posted on the Mastercraft Boat Owners forum on Facebook this morning for $69k. Looks like a screaming deal. Upgraded ballast, 6.0 engine, and Gen2. You could prob squeeze off a few grand from the asking price for the hours and get yourself in the 30 with a possible warranty. No affiliation btw. The 30 will prob be easier on resale, as a lot of people over look the X10. IMHO the X10 is a great choice if your average crew is 10 or less people, but for the price of the X30 posted in the owners page of FB, you canít beat it.

**** EDIT ... just saw itís in Alberta, Canada ...

Sorry should have clarified. It will surf sorta but requires quite a bit of work. Out of the box( as most people want) it struggles. I loved my 15 star with gen 2 and 800lbs lead. I when I demoed a 13 in 2013 it was not good of surfing from the factory since gen 2 was not available at the time

With people switching to the new star you might be able to find a 13 Star for close to your budget. And with gen 2 it surfs more than ok

I vote for a new nxt22 if you can up the budget a little. But I would think 16 or 17 can be had within budget. If you have to lower tower for storage, definitely up budget for new to get the zft2. Bimini is much more convenient as well.

Also look at the 2013+ X10 ... great all around boat, a little less room than the X30 ... good ski wake for a boat that big too
