Considering a 2002 X-10 or 2010 X-1 (Rought Water)

Hello all. First Post. I've been lurking for a while learning as much as I can about Mastercraft boats.

I am about to pull the trigger on my first Mastercraft, a 2002 X-10. I have owned various I/O and Outboards my whole life. I have looked at the boat and it is in excellent condition. I am going to take it out this afternoon for a test run. Assuming all goes well I just might have a new boat by the end of the day.

Anything I need to look out for in particular on this boat? I think this model was discontinued in 2005 and replaced with the X-15 in 2006. The boat has 350 hours on it. I'm just looking for any comments related to the X-10 in general and any gotcha's I should be aware of when test driving.

Thanks.

UPDATE: After looking at the X-10 I really like it and think it fits my needs perfectly. However, I can get into a used 2010 X-1 for not much more money. I am concerned about how the X-1 handles rough water compared to the X-10.

I need opinions on how well the X-1 handles rough water generally and compared to the X-10.

Thanks

THe standard FAQ section for things to consider when purchasing a boat is a good place to start. My Maristar 210 with the tower is similar to an x-10 except for the ballast. Good luck and post some pictures, ask some more questions if you are still on the fence about it after today.

For what its worth, the 2002 X-10 is asking $31,500. The 2010 X-1 is asking $46,000.

$14,500 doesn't qualify as 'not much more' in my book, fwiw. But you are talking 8 years newer, not exactly apples-apples either.

I have the same hull and it handles for crap in rough water. I live on a small lake so not a big deal not in rough water that often. However if I needed something to handle big chop or tons of rollers it would not be my boat of choice. Also its quite a bit smaller. It will have a better wakeboard wake though. So its another deal just depends on your needs.

You are correct, $14,500 is significant. I don't know what the rock bottom price is on either of these boats, but I feel like there is more room to move on the X-1. When its all said and done I believe the actual price difference would be less than $10,000.

I'm not comparing apples to apples, but I am trying to decide whether the smaller X-1 that is 8 years newer is worth the additional cost and an overall better decision than the 8 year old X-10.

Get what suits your needs best. Doesn't seem like X1 is the ticket.

X1 is average in the chop, so is the X10, Nice thing about the X1 is if you're turning around to get people who fell off tubes the x1 will turn better. If it's primarily hanging out the X10, the X1 is a great all around boat for all you mention
