Adding stock tower??

Iím looking to buy a boat but one doesnít have the tower..i prefer the stock look over the generic aftermarket towers. Any suggestions on where to get a tower? 2008 x-15

Start here or call your dealer and see how much a new one would cost.

For what itís worth I think youíll have a tough time finding something. Dealer cost will be bonkers (if even available).

You might get lucky on this forum or craigslist as towers come up from time to time but you may be waiting years.

Another route would be to scour salvage boat auctions and try to find a sunk one. Like this

Not sure if you found a sweetheart deal on a used MC, but In the end youíre probably better of from a financial standpoint to get one with a tower already.

Get ready for a cost of over 6K, if they can even quote it.

probably your cheapest and best option to keep factory lines of a tower would be to go with a New Dimension tower.

Very solid tower and great lines
