John:

I know you are not busting chops. MC had, and advertised, a sub $40K boat in 2006 and early 2007. From what I have seen (via the original ads and X1's for sale on the internet), they had the old tower, no racks, no ballast, no bimini, no cover, no stereo, lower end trailer (i.e. no swing away tongue), etc. I am not sure if it had speed control or not. My dealer gave me a list of the differences when I went to purchase mine but cant find the list.

Here, for example, is a pic of one with the older trailer:

and here is one with the old tower:

Yea, I've heard about the 39,999 price point, but didn't know how they stripped it out. The plan wasn't very successful is also what I remember. By the time I was ordering an '08 all the X boats (X1 included) came standard with ballast, stereo, amp, sub, 6 speakers, driver's bolster, speed control, and I don't know what else. Even the gel or decal scheme looks different and cheaper.

Don't take this as gospel, but from one I looked at previously:
I believe they had ballast still.
The dash had no billet.
Single axle trailer, had a roller, no buddy, and no pivot.
Single color gel.
Believe it had stereo but no tower speakers.
Very basic interior colors.

Those swivel board racks are an expensive option for sure. My buddy's X-1 had the cheaper non-swivel racks with bungees.

Bobx1, are you getting a different boat?

Not sure what I am going to do Dave. Kid number 1 is now married and possibly moving out of state. Kid number 2 is away at college and works in the summer. Kid number 3 is in summer football workouts most of the time. I bought a new party barge last summer and still have a jet ski but may get another MC at some point. Just not using it enough.

What is the difference between the trailers? The one you posted has terrible white rims, but other than that it looks the same as your trailer, and my 2003 x-2 trailer.

Isn't the tower in the 2nd post the standard 2005-2006 tower?

I was told the sub 40k boat did not have swing away tongue and maybe some other items. The other boat I linked to was an example of a new tower with fixed racks. Trying to give examples of old tower, fixed racks, old trailer, etc. I think ksdaoski's list is correct but for some reason I thought ballast and stereo was an option and not included.

Great looking boat... Love the color scheme. Being an X1 owner myself... these boats are worth every penny. Weighted properly they can produce an exceptional wake any pro wouldn't care one bit to ride behind. The asking price seems right on spot as well. Lot's of nice extra's and very well kept. Good luck with the sale!

How much work is it to lower these towers? We go under two lowbridges on the way to the lake, and wondering if it would be too much of a hassle or not. Also, any trouble with the height of hitting your head when walking around, I am 6'. Like the boat, just never been in one with the tower and not familiar with them.

Great looking boat, I hope you get every dime possible.

After just coming back from the local boat show and looking at $90k for a new X2, $3x,xxx is a value!

I'd be interested, but you getting every dime possible is not in my best interests! I'm currently looking in the 20-30k range.

Good luck
