Which X to get...

Ive been looking for a little while and am trying to stay in the sub $50 range. I found several boats that have peaked my interest, but not sure what is a better family/surf/return on $$
All boats are within a couple grand of each other, come with trailers and maint history.

1. 2007 X-45 with 8.1 decent stereo, heater very clean but 480 Hours
2. 2008 X-star MCX loaded, fly hi, clean 350 hours
3.2010 X-Star 155 hours ($8000 more..but newer) All stock, sub amp but thats it..
4. 2007 Supra SSV24 Gravity edition 120hours 8.1, loaded, mint mint... I can get it for $42000 which is cheaper than any MC I've looked at... but I wasnt really looking at boats other than MC

Any suggestions would be great.

I vote for the 2010 x-Star. What is the motor in it?

Little biased, but I vote the 45. No comparison on storage and room between the star and the 45.

2010 X Star. Recently I sold my 2003 X-30. It was right at the 10 year old line. The buyer and the lender he used (who I know and respect) stated that it is very difficult to get financing on a 10+ year old boat. So, this being 2013, the older boats would have limited "remaining financeable life" = when they are 10 years old, you will be in need of finding a cash buyer. Personally, I have opted to go for a new boat - you can finance them (depending on price) for up to 20 years, if you like

Of those I'd go X45. Better surf and family boat. I'd keep looking I'm sure you can find an X45 in the $50s. Also, I'd consider the X15 too. It's bigger than an XStar on the inside and is extremely versatile.
Good Luck!!

X45 for sure if I am making the decision. Xstar is not good at anything but boarding relatively speaking.

family/surf. x45 is a better choice than the star.
