All x-45 owners

Looking around at some possible replacements in case I sell my Maristar. Came across what I think may be a pretty good deal. Time will tell as I haven't seen all the details.

My question is, what does the x-45 do well? What makes it better/different than x-30 besides the added length? Thanks

One more thing....is there anything in particular for the 04-06 years to be on the lookout for?

Was there still an upholstery issue then?

I have a 2012 but the hull should still be the same. The wakeboard wake is pretty big with the stock ballast and even better with some extra weight. You can get a great surf wake with alot of weight. I love my 45. It's handles the chop great and drives awesome. The layout is spacious with tons of storage.

The real only difference between the 30s and 45s then (not the new 30) is the helm seat, gull wing huge storage front seats, front ladder and larger fuel tank and seating 18 vs 16. Windshield back they are fairly identical. X45 does everything well except slalom.

So ive read some of the discussions around the mcx on this large of a boat so if u were looking again would you entirely rule out any boat that had one?

I have one and while many will disagree with me, the mcx is just fine for me and I load it down with surf ballast. I did upgrade to the oj 5 blade and that made a huge difference.! Dealer told me it was essentially the same low end power curve.

I don't know if would own an x45 without at least a 6.0. I feel like that MCX would be struggling constantly
