I apologize if this question has been covered, but I didn't see it in the FAQ's. Does a list exist with all of the boats post X-Star that explains what they were designed for/marketed to?

1. Wakeboarding

unless youre looking for a list of all other boats and their purpose

I think he means all the other boats. X star is understood, but which are geared more to wakeboarding and which ones surfing.

...who are they marketed to...largely college educated white males between 35-55:cool:

That is a very comprehensive list but is 100% accurate lol

I'm guessing you mean something like:

X-Star: wakeboarding
Prostar: 3 event tournament skiing
NXT: budget-friendly wakeboard/surf

Obviously there are more models, but I think wakeboard/surf could prob apply to all of them?

Buncha smart guys here!

To clarify, what are there features that differentiate the x-15,25,35,45,46 etc? Besides length, that is. Where do they excel?

all current models will have their purpose listed on the website. older ones, there are a lot of them so if youre looking a certain model to buy, it may be easier to just ask rather than request the use of the entire lineup since the inception of multi sport mastercrafts.

Most older x boats are wakeboard boats. Surf specific boats didn't really get cranking until 2010ish for MC. I think?!?... And that was just gen1/Trim tabs, which everyone says aren't really Worth it. CSX is multisport/fishing. Prostar is 3 event skiing and barefooting

Agree with Aric, some hulls are better for surfing than others and a lot of guys on here sell and trade up often. Post up a model your looking at and they can help.

Here you go. As stated, all older boats were wakeB specific, and all are wakeS capable to some degree.

I 100% wouldnt say all were wakeboard specific. Really depends on the model

I can't afford new but I'd like a boat that gives a decent ski wake. I'm no course skier so I don't need a prostar. I've been looking at the X-15 but come across the 25 and 35 and was wondering how different those models are from the 15, which is a respected crossover if I understand correctly

25 and 35 wont slalom well at all. The x15 with a center tab seems to be pretty decent for skiing.

the x-15 will be a decent slalom wake. The X25 and X35 definitely will not be.

I have said it before, and will say it again. The X-15 does everything well. If you slalom, then get one with the center trim tab. If you surf, then you will need to load it down, but does not disappoint. Great family boat and has a TON of room and storage. I am biased, but would not change anytime soon as it fits my needs perfectly with a family of four. We usually travel with 8 aboard and don't feel cramped at all.

If you're ok with the engine in the middle, any of those models - PS205/9, X7, X9 - are great, open water ski boats. For a V drive, I would look at the 205V hull which was re-used as the first X Star, then as an early 2000's X2 and lastly, the X1. They are roomy without being huge, have tracking fins like a ProStar and in my experience of reviewing hundreds of used MC ads, seem to consistently be well cared for by their owners.

I have a 2005 X10 which is a jack of all trades, master of none. It was a great step up for our family from the '91 pro star.

My friends regularly ski behind their X15 and seem happy. I kept my ProStar and as such, have never skied behind my X10.

Hope this helps.

If you bend more towards Slalom you could also look at the x14/x14v

Thanks for the input. We have a dd supra legacy now, but it gets tight and I won't be able to upgrade for a couple seasons. Luckily we're on a small lake and can make frequent trips back to the dock. I think a vdrive is going to be the best for my family. I'll keep watching the x-15 market.
