For those of you detailed oriented folks.....
That a 13' gen1 X30 with 6.2 430hp
On a 2014 custom Saltwater series Paint OvER Galvenized Low Pro Trailer.
The new trailers are very cool, track perfect at ANY SPEED or corner. Trust me. :(
LED lights and Backup lights too.
A backlit MasterCraft logo and 18" XDs make this thing a conversation piece while at the pump.
I starred at it too.. Lol.

What was a SS doing in Idaho?

Over head Shot...
Although we did not spec this out, it is very close to what we would have done.
We had never seen this unique interior combo before.
Our Kids think the boat looks like some kind of nice car.

Yes, it includes cockpit heaters and power steering. LOL

Good question, this is actually a standard x30 6.2.
The dealer was able to upgrade me to the saltwater series trailer that I require.
And added the flush out system, for the casual salt water use I do use.
The x30 previous trailer is now sitting underneath a 2014 x30.
That deal was renegotiated with the 2014 x30 new buyer.

My combination freshwater and saltwater use of the boat does not require the full saltwater series Mastercraft.
But the trailer was an absolute must-have.
I will not put a non-galvanized trailer and saltwater even one time

Very fast and easy though.

Never saw this Swim platform cover either... Kinda retro teak looking.
I thought it gave the boat a unique look.

My boat made the exact opposite trip as yours. Original owner was in San Diego area. A guy from Sandpoint, ID bought it and drug it back here. I think he put about 10 hours on the boat before I bought it with 45 hours. Mine's a SS boat. I love the closed cooling, flush system, strainer and hydraulic steering that the SS boats have. My galvanized trailer isn't too pretty though. Sorry our weather up here wasn't a little more accommodating for the transport home. Enjoy your new boat!

Thanks Scott, I love how you say down there. When It was 1400 miles north of me.
Lol. That is a lovely place to go by the way!!
Hope to return there someday soon with the boat to enjoy the lake

Nice boat. Are you planning on taking it out at Carlsbad?

That's a tough call being it's an X30 and all.... So if you see it out there, keep it
To yourself.

Thx, yup our last boat was all Black too.... Even more surface area as well.
I don't mind cleaning it, as long as the Stereo is on..
It's harder for sure, but then your boat appreciates the extra attention

This boat has some Red Metal flake that hides dirt.
If I ever get lucky enough to order/find one...I would do all flake....
I know it's a Bit on the "Bass Tracker" side, but we are starting to like the Flake.

My x45 has silver flake that covers the majority of the boat with a little bit of black as well. Flake hides the dirt well and it always shines when the sun hits it. Flake is the best way to have a boat.
