I almost went with this scheme, which I think looks better in the pictures and on the trailer, but I think the one above will look better in the water, given the lines.

Beautiful, John! Congratulations on the new tug!!

Nicely done John! Cant wait to see more photos. I almost pulled the trigger on an XT22 this winter. Maybe next year!

Harold - really like your colour scheme too.

That’s a nice list of options John. Great looking boat. Have you seen the starboard pop up seat option in a XT22? I assume it’s the same as the XT25. I’d like to add it to ours.

Thanks, gang. I did go with the starboard seat back. I was surprised it didn't exist sooner, coming from the X14 where that was always the best seat in the house. I've got a good buddy who works for MC, and he helped me choose. Glad to see he didn't leave much on the table.

To be clear, I haven't seen it in person, but have seen pics of it. It is an absolute must-have IMO now that it is available. I can't imagine anyone ordering one or stocking a boat without it.

The biggest mistake that MC made with those rear facing seats on the stern is the lack of handholds. So far, from showroom shopping, no one in my family likes it. They feel it’s awkward and a bit too far of a drop to the swim deck for average height people, as in hard to brace yourself with your feet. So you’re perched on slippery vinyl on the stern of the boat with nothing to hang on to. Really MC? Must one really get an X23 just so they can keep their “behinds” in the seat?

I digress. But it’s a legitimate complaint. Personally I like it but I’m 6’4”.

For 100k+++ you would think there might be fewer face/palm moments with MC...still didn’t stop us from buying one obviously

Take that as you will (this is all assuming the boat isn’t moving)

For anyone who hasn't seen it, this is the new telescoping backrest. This photo is from an XT25, but it's the same on an XT22
