Yes and no. I like the detailed walkthroughs to learn about the boat on my own. As I have said in the past, my dealer experience is less than stellar. I knew far more about the X22 than my first sales guy. If I had to rely on the dealer alone i would be in a different brand. I should also note that my dealer also sales Skiers Choice...they seem very knowledgeable there. MC, not so much.

Agree that they are great for window shoppers. Prob keeps some form wasting salesmen's time.

Disagree, they would not help. I love utube and purchased both of my boats without ever seeing that particular model in person until the day I purchased. The Nautuque videos are sharp and I always wished they would do them for Crafts.

It is pretty ugly, but you spend most of the time in and behind these boats, and both look pretty good. If the wake is as good as advertised, I wouldn't care as much about the exterior. $180K is still a lot though, no matter how pretty/ugly it is.

I bought the X20 and two Porsche Cayenne GTS's based on photos and the dealer's word while I was working OCONUS over the last couple years. Picked them up when I flew home. Being a repeat customer also gave me confidence in the dealers. I would not do this for a Craigslist purchase.

When I bought my A5 I didn't even know what color I was getting until I went to pick it up from the Dealer

I think the waves made by these G's are nice. Certainly competitive in the marketplace.

I just think the lines on the boats are not pleasing to the eye. Looks like a bunch of triangles got in a fight. Reminds me of the Stealth Fighter F117.

Wouldnít ever buy a boat without demoing. Lot different than buying a new Porsche. Lol.
