2007 MC x-30 Purchase - Total Rookie NEED HELP PLEASE!

Hello Everyone. I am in my 2nd year of boat ownership after starting last year. Purchased a 2006 Reinell lsr and after the 1st weekend realized how much of a rookie move it was to purchase ANY boat with no experience and even more of a rookie move to not research boats before purchase.

I have very young daughters and two older sons. Sons into wake boarding as they are exceptional snowboarders, as is my Wife. We live in Colorado. I moved here from NY so I suck at all things snowboarding or wake boarding. My goal was to just purchase a family boat last year. Now my goal is to buy a GREAT USED BOAT in the 40K-50K price range. It came down to Mastercraft and Malibu. Moomba seemed like a nice value but I'm sure I will want to upgrade again.

So...it's Mastercraft. There isn't much out there in terms of inventory and for other reasons that you all here already know. So, if I'm not imposing too much, I'm hoping the experts can help me out.

I'm buying used and paying cash.
Looks like the 2007 MC X-30 is where I'm at. Loving the looks of this boat. There are newer and cheaper MC X-30s out there but have more hours and anything over 150 hours freaks me out. I am down to two options but I'm open to other ideas/suggestions as well:

1. http://www.boattrader.com/listing/20...ft-X-30-615946

I spoke with the owner. 120 hours. Sending specs. Just hasn't used it forever. $53,000 firm. Have to figure out a way to have it inspected and shipped. 1200 miles away.

2. http://denver.craigslist.org/boa/4434110295.html

This boat is much closer. Haven't spoken to owner. He is probably on the damn boat!

I don't know anymore. I go back and forth between newer Malibu Wakesetter listings, then MC X-series...basically I'm lost and need advice.

Thanks everyone. Happy Memorial Day.

Todd

Both look great, the black and white one didn't list hours that I saw. I do like the orange and black, with 120 hours that is like new. Good luck

I wouldn't be freaked out by something above ~150 hrs. That is barely broken in on a boat and they spend most of their life idling around anyway (you can read the ECU to determine how many hours at different rpms but it seems like more than 50% of hours are idling to pick someone up vs? full throttle run). Some on here are over 1,000 hours and still run like new. Sometimes too low of hours can be a problem as well.

Look for maintenance records and have the m/c dealer do a ownership transfer inspection. Costs around $250 but very thorough and will ID any issues before you buy.

Absolutely! Thanks man. I insist on paying for your time.

Is 53K reasonable for a pristine 2007 X-30?

I've owed the internet, including onlyinboards.com, and I cannot find any 2007 X-30 boats...which I guess is good and bad I guess.

yeah...I agree...but that price isn't far off from what I've seen with higher hours from boulder boats.com that have sold. I'm open to suggestions. Thanks for the responses.

No paying for my time required. Just paying it forward. Send me the contact info. I'll let you research whether the price is right and let you know what I find going over it. I can stop by tomorrow if owner is around. Let me know if he's available.
