Exclamation 2003 X-Star with 205V Hull?

Did MC make any 205V hull X-Stars in 2003?

The following link shows a "2003 MasterCraft X-Star (non pickle fork)"

However, I thought that the 2003 X-Star was the 'new' hull design with the pickle fork.

The graphics and stitching on the cushions indicate "X-Series" and not X-Star. Can anyone tell what this is? It appears to be the 205V hull.

Is the year incorrect? If it is a 2003, is it actually a X-2 and mis-labeled as an X-Star?

its the other way around- majority of 03 x-stars are the 205v hull, and late in 03 they started coming out with the picklefork.

KS hit it on the head. Very very few late year 03 pickle forks. Most were 205v Hulls. An 03 pickle fork is a rarity

I have a 2003 X2 which is the 205V hull. Believe my boat has a march production date in the hull id number.
How did I ever live w/o my new 03 X-2?

Early X2s came with graphics that say X Series which I was told were later in the product run changed to X2. I believe my boat had a November or December production date. My 03 X2 had the same graphics. If this one is like the one I had it's an early 03.

If you're interested in it check the prop to see if it's one of the few that came with right rotation prop. Mine had the right rotation prop and handled poorly (leaned heavily over to the right) until I changed it over to left rotation. It also steered real heavy which I resolved by swapping out the rudder to the newer style rudder. This model year also experienced problems with grounding at the dash which could result in noise in the gauge circuit and cause the gauges to quit reading intermittently as well as effect the PP.

Looks like a real clean boat. I sold mine 2 years ago for $27K with 190 hours on it however mine didn't have a ballast system which this one does. Mine did have a depth sounder, the full factory stereo with an amp, sub woofer and factory tower speakers. It also came with a single axle trailer which was plenty for this boat. I was the third owner of the boat and suspect the handling issues as well as the other issues I picked off played a part into why it changed hands so quickly.
