            Asking $64000 for a boat that has 835 hours on it. Me thinks there are better deals to be had.

              My thoughts as well. The "special edition" uniqueness doesn't add that much value, IMO.

                I rode in this boat at the Knoxville pro tour stop the year he go it and it was amazing how much better the boat performs with that much power. It drove better fully loaded than mine does empty. I would not drop that much cash on it but would love the power.

                  IMO, I think the price is fair considering its a 2011 with anodised power tower. Typically a 2008 - 2010 not so loaded goes for the same price.

                  I really like his black & gold flake x-star that had the beach/mocha interior. That was really sharp looking.

                    I'm sure it was well maintained, but those are 835 hard hours on that drivetrain. (Bet the seats could tell some stories though!)

                      yeah - but it's a good place for the dealer to start negotiating from - but with ya on value...

                          Would you trade your current x-star on it and pay the increased price difference? I think that would be the true test of the value you see in it.

                          Although I'm sure it was well maintained, I'm also sure it was "well used" as well. E.g. crossing wakes at speed for double-ups, lots of deep water starts with slammed ballast, etc. I think most of us if we were looking for a used boat, would be judging how much it was "pampered" as well.

                          No doubt that the boat does look good.

                            Also, I don't put a lot of value in a "power" tower. I'd rather invest the money in a really big garage door.

                              Price seems fair to me too. I paid more than that for my 08 last spring but hours were low (~125). 11's are usually in the $70k+ range This one is surely loaded and could be had for around $60k. If you can get past the hours, that's a lot of boat for $60k. Don't love the color but I could get used to it.

                              Someone is going to get a cool boat for not that much $$.
