It's NOT a 197 in any way. They have mis-labelled it. It's either a 205V or one of the first generation X boats. It's larger than the 197 and a completely different hull (more room).

A 197 only holds about 7 people vs. the 12 people.

Also, the engine is the base Preditor engine.

I am still in the market. I drove 2 hours the other day to pick up a boat with check in hand and I was nervous about how well maintained the boat was so opted not to purchase it. Again any help would be great as there appears to be a lot of not well maintained boats out there. I grew up with an 1985 and then a 1991 Prostar 190 and it was wiped down after each use and serviced when ever it needed anything. I am surprised when I see so many boats where there is not pride of ownership.

Hi - I'd like to jump in here. I'm old school skier that hasn't been on the water much for several years due to ankle injuries but my kids are getting old enough that they need to learn the ways of the water. Heck - I might even get back on a ski or learn to surf :-). My history is with direct drive Supremes but spacewise the ol' DD won't cut it. It's time to move on to a V drive multi use boat the family of 6 can grow and learn with. What should I be looking for in the sum $30 range? Thanks.

Ole DD? oh Pshaw.. --- 6 comfortable is at least a 22 footer... - 20 foot v-drive is still a tad snug for 6 - IMO - so and X25 - or X30 size boat is what you need.

Which of the models is going to offer the most bang for the buck? Excuse my ignorance - (that's why I'm here) but it is very confusing how MC seems to use multiple names for the same hulls and the same name for multiple hulls. I've looked for some sort of key to figure all that out but I haven't found the "key" to deciphering MC naming yet.

I have a family of 4 but always have 6 to 10 with us at the lake. I just went from a 98 200VRS Maristar to a 13 X-30. The Maristar fit all our needs until we got into surfing. I test drove the X-Star, X-25, X-35 and the X-30. By far the X-30 was the most all around versatile model we drove. Love our X-30.
