I found two boats one a mastercraft X-1 and a Nautique 211. Both boats are clean as can be low hours and the right price but neither have Ballasts and Perfect Pass. How much on average would it be to add these and can it be done? Thanks

All x1s should come with ballast

I did a complete factory look install with 750 bags In back, Johnson ballast pumps, etc and seem to remember it was ~ $1500 for all the parts. Did the labor myself and wasn't too bad. Wakemakers is probably the most knowlegable and great to deal with. They can give you a complete price or you can build it yourself online.

A new PP stargazer setup will set you back about $1000 - $1200. Check with these guys.


They had the best prices a few years ago when I bought mine.

I think I was just under $3k for a diy perfect pass stargazer and ballast system install.

Is the end result (wake) same as if it can factory?

Yep. Well, in most cases better than factory. Until pretty recently just about all factory ballast systems were very anemic. Most people supplement the factory system or rip out most of it to put in bigger bags anyway.

What year X1? 06+ will be throttle by wire and should be an easy install on the PP part.
