2011 X-2 on Ebay

We have a customer that just ordered a new 2012 and needs to make room. This boat is in absolutely perfect condition.

Thats an awesome looking boat, but my question is...why would anyone still order a RTP over the MCX?

For the current owner's application; wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and tubing with younger children. The RTP is a fine engine. Even here at 5400' you would be hard pressed to feel a difference in the engines. The MXC definitely adds to the bling factor though.

The rtp is always a deal breaker.

I think there's a little more to it then just bling.

I will have to say I had the MCX in my 209 and now have the RTP in my X1. I have not seen any difference in power or performance... even throwing 3000+ pounds in it. If anything the RTP get's better gas mileage.

Heated drivers and observers seats... But no heater or PP? That's an unusual setup

On our test lake there is a 1.5 mph (GPS) difference at the top end between the MCX and RTP with identical props.

This boat has the MasterCraft cruise system. It works very well with this setup, you would not miss Perfect Pass unless you are going for the rider presets.

The biggest difference in MC cruise and PP is the ability to just go full throttle and have PP pick up the speed. You can not do that with MC.

For instance, you have your wife diving the boat and the PP is set to 11.5 she just moves the throttle to wide open and PP picks up the speed.

I had MC cruise and paid the $1100 to get PP put in and the ECM flashed for it.

I'm sure the horse power and torque curve are different between the two engines.

Maybe it's just me, but the guys trying to sell a boat, not get comments on what motors better. In my opinion, these comments are best saved for another thread. Just my $.02
Great looking boat and I am sure someone out there is looking for a similar setup. GLWS!
