35th (sans tower) gets my vote too. I still wish I bought Shep's boat back in 07.

i remember the first time i saw the 35th at the September 2002 reunion at the factory ... i had a sneak peak at it before they rolled it out ... wow ... truly one of the best looking MCs of all time

I would have to agree on the 35th being my favorite, but these two would be a close second and third for me. I love the way the 07 TT brought back the stars (funky stars, but still stars!)

That was the only way I could bear to part with the old one! I know I have posted these before.

01-22-2012, 12:39 PM
So far, 35th, especially the 5 x 190s with NO tower. I'm waiting for the next years. I predict dark stripe (may be black) where the blue metal flake is, with chrome stars and lettering. I just pray the front handles are lowered and don't stick up, please, please!

But it's OK (and cheaper) to change boats, have multiple boats, or love someone else's boat more than your own.

Oh and if you put that 40th X-Star and Prostar side by side, that would be a tandem that is hard to beat for prettiest ever. There is a guy with a 40th Xstar that rides on my lake I see often and that thing will catch your eye from a mile away!!!

I don't like the weird double nose on some of the wakeboard boats. I'm sure it serves some practical purpose but it's not aesthetically pleasing to me.

I do like the 81-85 S & S boats, and I like the 35th anniversary boats with the S & S paint scheme. Classic boats that to me define what Mastercraft is best at doing.

IMHO......

The very best looking Mastercraft ever is the one that is in your garage, at your dock, or behind your tow rig.

The very best view of any Mastercraft is from the back end and it is best viewed from the end of a line while skimming across the water.

^agreed. I could give 2 craps about the inside of my boat as long as it functions and doesn't look ragged out. I can't tell what kind of vinyl Im sitting on as long as its comfortable. I rode around the lake 1/2 of last year with stripped off decals that still showed in the gel since saturdays are for wakeboarding not wetsanding. I did however convince a guy that I had mastercraft ghosted into the gel on purpose and that it was a major project to do. He seemed amazed.

Sage words.

Like all things, there is a hierarchy from most well off rolling a brand new "X-Whatever" to the folks that struggle to put gas the boat for the weekend.

They are all expensive toys that very few of the population have the privilege to enjoy.

In a world of Bayliner Capris, sporting any MC is a good thing indeed.

2006, VRS200(X2) the tower is the 06 year that was on all the X2's and other X series boats for that year. MC got fancy after 06 but these towers are the strongest.

I am fairly certain this is the prettiest mastercraft I've ever seen based on 2 facts- 1) It's in my storage unit waiting to be dewinterized (come on March) 2) It's paid for. Have to agree on the 06 tower, I looked at an 06 X1 and 07 X1 side by side and bought the 06 partially because the tower wasn't as pretty but it was solid as a rock.

Yeah, I agree with that. I can also say that most of the suggested 'prettiest' on here are Direct Drives. When it's a V drive it looks too much like an I/O. IMO :).
