2008 X-1 w/90 hours?

All,

My sister and brother-in-law found an X-1 on onlyinboards. It's a 2008 with 90 hours. Asking price is $28k. The seller is the second owner and has put approximately 20 hours on the boat in 6 years.

They are asking me for advice when they go to see it on Saturday. I put 90 hours a year on my boat so the very low hours scare me. The boat is at a storage area an hour from the lake and it sounds like an "as-is, where-is" deal. I recommended that they run it on fake-a-lake at the very least. What else should they do under the circumstances? My other suggestion to them was find another boat?!

Thanks in advance for the help!

Chris

The price seems pretty good. I don’t recommend they buy the boat without a marine survey or test drive. The low hours would worry me too...perhaps they could negotiate a sale agreement that is subject to a test drive or marine inspection.

A test drive is definitely in order this time of year.
