Friend WTB 2008 X-2 - tell me what you think

A good buddy of mine has had his eye on buying an X-2 and came across this one. It looks pretty nice, clean, low hours, LY6 engine (nice!!).

Tell me what you think? Is the asking price of $55K fair?

Thanks,
Tom

i'd shy away from an LY6 in an X2 - it'll burn more gas and simply is not needed unless your doing a ton of footing.

Willyt - thanks for the input. I agree that the LY6 is overkill for that boat. However, I have the L-18 in my X-30 and at first I thought that was overkill. Not anymore, loaded with 3,000 lbs of water and 6-8 people - NO PROBLEMS.

I always error on the side of having too much hp. Also, I know of no one that buys a boat for fuel economy.

This X-2 is loaded and absolutely beautiful.

This is a brand new 2010, that could be had for about $56k..... Plus probably $2000.00 to ship it to you. Still a brand new boat, with a brand new warranty. Only has the RTP 310hp in it, but it works well in an X2. An MCX would have been a little better, but for the price, you can't go wrong.....

Nice boat. Comes down to how much your friend is willing to spend for that LY6. My guess is that it's adding around $5-$6K to the price vs. same boat with MCX. Willyt makes a point in that there are people that wouldn't pay a premium for the LY6 because they don't think it's needed and don't want to spend more money on fuel. Having owned an X-2 for a while I wouldn't pay a large premium for the LY6, but if I could get it closer to the MCX price I wouldn't shy away. Nice looking boat absolutely loaded.

Looks like a nice boat. I agree that the LY-6 is overkill in an x-2. A friend of mine has a 2007 with the rtp. We've loaded it with over 3000lbs, and it has no trouble planing out with the right prop.

If he is a good buddy I'd steer him away from the x2 and into a star of same year. For $55k he can get just as nice a star.
Yeah x-2 can do alittle bit of everything but doesnt do anything great.

The main reason he's looking at the X-2 is because it will fit in his garage. He would really like the X-15 but it won't fit. An X-Star definately won't fit. He refuses to leaving it outside and doesn't want to rent a storage unit for it becuase of the hassels of always having to go get the boat to use it.
