Well, after many months of waiting on my new X80, it finally arrived. This is my 7th Mastercraft Boat I have owned. My previous boats have been:
2006 X2
2006 X10
2007 X-Star
2008 X-Star 40th Anniversary (metal flake)
2009 X-35 (metal flake)
2010 X-55 (metal flake)

Anyway, I ordered my X55 last year and LOVED it. My plan was to order another X55 this year with the LSA, but after a lot of thought, decided to go with the x80 as I love to wake surf and prefer to surf behind the X80 as the wake is perfect. Now, I prefer a WILD boat, so you will see in these pics that my boat reflects just that. Anyone that doesnt like it, you wont hurt my feelings, but I personally LOVE the way it turned out.
Long story short, there was a glitch in the ordering process at mastercraft. You were not supposed to be able to order a metal flake x80 (or so I was told by the North America Sales rep at the mastercraft Factory), but someone in the I.T. department did not get the right on the online build-a-boat program. By the time the mistake was realized by MC, my boats hull had already been sprayed. Anyway, here are a few pics. Will post more in the next couple weeks.

That would be funny, but I will pass on that one. The Canadian Blue metal flake and fire Red flake look awesome. Will try to get it to show up in pics when I get it out in the sun...

Wow, insane boat.....It's x-80 week here on TT. Good to know that people are still buying these. I would love to see a pic of someone surfing behind it. I assume it has ballast?..trim tabs?
Where do you drive it? Must be a big lake.

Congrats on the new boat! Those X80 with the power tower are great looking. Twin 400s will make it a fun drive I'm sure!

I noticed that each year the boat gets bigger. Will 2012 be a 300?

I strongly considered a 300 this year. I really want one, but something about spending $500k (or close to) on a boat keeps holding me back. I have been able to get out of my boats each year so far. Not so sure I could do that with a 300. I am already in a limited market with the 80, the 300 is a VERY limited market for resale....

P.S. My fathers new x80 should be coming in over the next 2 weeks or so. Look for pics of it soon. It will be equally as wild, but different. We share this user ID on team talk (I never bothered to sign up for my own), so look for it under this user name in the very near future
My order slot was a couple weeks ahead of his and I just took delivery of my boat last weekend
