First Mastercraft question from a newbie

We are looking for our first Mastercraft and have found an 07 X1 which is owned by a resort for children only on our lake, it is operated by the staff which are trained to run the boat teaching kids to ski, board and tube.......i feel the boat is a good deal and in overall very nice shape BUT im nervous about the hours....1100 oil was changed weekly and all maintenece was done by loval dealer. Can you guys give me some input on this? As i said im a newbie to the whole Mastercraft thing..........just and fyi I think i can get the boat in the low to mid 20's Thank you!!

Posted in your other thread...

I worked at a summer camp in high school and while the boats (inboard but not MC) were always kept up to date on their scheduled maintenance they saw more than their fair share of abuse when staff ski time rolled around.

Just something to be aware of...

I read here once that 2000 hrs. was kinda the rebuild mark considering that all the maintenance up to that was done right? I may be wrong but that's what I'm shooting for.

more like 2500. Which motor does it have?

I just got a 2006 X1 with 800 hours on it about 5 weeks ago, and put 94 hours on it so far. We paid $25k for it, so your shooting for the right area in price. Have you been able to take it out riding? Do you put any more weight by the factory in it? Do you have pics?

One more is very visibly different, its got RED everywhere. This more has more power, but not necessarily a necessity.

I removed my hard tanks from the 06 X1 and put in 750lbs rear backs, along with 370 in the ski locker, and 800 up front. Most people including myself do not need such a wake, but the people i pull do =P...

If it has been maintained well, and is cosmetically well cared for I would not be scared to pull the trigger, if it can be had for a good price. The rebuild point if the motor was well cared for, and if they were doing weekly oil changes then it sounds like it was, may be a lot higher than 2000 hrs. My parents had an '88 that was pushing 3000 and still ran like a champ.
