2006 x80

Newbie here so take it easy on me!

I am looking at a 2006 X 80 twin engine with 178 hours on each.
It does not have perfect pass, but he will add it for me. Total price is 49k
I know that they are a HUGE boat, twice the service cost, 100+ gallons of gas, but I like to be different and no one around here has one so that is making it more enticing.

My question: Can you all please give me pros and cons? It will be our first surf boat. Does it put a nice wave? I looked at a 2010 x45 today and it just didn't have the wow factor or impress me that much.

TIA

Which 2 engines does it have?

Also, IIRC, back in the day MC advertised that since it had twin props it would have twin surf wakes.

Holy fahk. That's a big boat. No idea how it surfs. I'd imagine it would be ok. Just because it's big doesn't mean the hull will throw a nice wave. Id surf it before purchase.

I know the one you're looking at has twin engines, but you might give this thread a read: LINK
