Are you looking for an X2? We have a 2010 also, love the boat, it's just starting to get small with all the kids (4) and friends. Will probably have to upgrade to a 45 in the next year or so

2010 Mastercraft X2

I love the 2010, 2011 X2 with the computer in the center of the dash. That's what sold me on mine, when I started looking I was wanting an 07-09 but once I seen the screen in the middle and the carbon fiber on the dash I only wanted the 2010 model. The 2011 has the computer screen in the middle, but I didn't like the decals on the 11 as much as the 2010. I found this one last May. It was purchased new in may of 2011 and had 40 hours on it when i bought it.

Good luck on your search, I've seen a lot of 07-09 from time to time for sell. Just be patient and the right one will come along. Don't settle for something you don't really want. Most people keep boats for a while so get the colors you want, or like! I plan on keeping mine for many years and glad I waited to get one I really liked. It took me about 6 months to find this one. I found it on boat trader with no pictures. I called and the guy sent me pics via email and I was on it after that. One test drive later and I was pulling it home.

Yes the rtp vs. mcx has been discussed to death. I stand by my opinion that for slalom skiing the mcx is a much better choice. Not much difference for boarding or surfing. And fuel consumption has been discussed as well. Not much difference.

To the op. $30k tops for that boat.
If its oxidized and left uncovered cut and polish the interior is a royal pain.
New vinyl and foam lotsa money. Only cool part would be to get one of the newer seat designs/materials.
If they couldn't even find the motivation to cover it, maintenance was prolly non existant too.
Carpet under the seats gotta be stanky moldy gross. Another pain
Corrosion etc from sitting in the elements.
And the RTP. Fine engine but hurts resale as well.
Trailer will need a bunch of work too. If it wasn't maintained (sure it wasn't) then new tires go thru bearings and brake system will be fubarred too. And if its a single axle not ideal for towing long distances, X2 is a heavy boat.
If you want a resto project, great. If not find another boat.
On 2nd thought $30k sounds like too much now!
There's better out there.

Our X2 is for sale but is in Northern California. Excellent shape but hours are not low, about 430. RTP engine. Has been very well maintained with dealer services every 50 or 100 hours. 400 hours is really not that many. Perfect Pass, great stereo, tandem trailer. Willing to negotiate on price.

I will agree with JohnE 100%

You only see the Extra umff of the MCX at the high speeds. Below 28MPH IIRC the torque curves and numbers are almost identical, but above that the MCX pulls away and is noticeably and upgrade worth paying for if you plan to ski a ton as well.

Here's one that looks mint. He does want a little too much but just see how bad he wants to sell it. Says one owner and always garage kept! I like boats that are perfect, you pay a little more for them but you get more in the long run.
