Time to upgrade

I decided to take the opportunity of appreciating boat values to sell my 09 Xstar and Im looking to purchase a new (er) boat. Im looking for something in the 23-25 foot range. Im looking to spend around 80k. Important features to us are Wakeboard wake for begginers and experienced riders, interior layout including a large bow and plenty of storage, I have been looking at these models mostly
X-46
Supra SE
G23
Moomba Makai
MXZ 24

I am not a fan of the 13-17 Xstar because of the seat in the walkway area from bow to cockpit, Id love to find an 18 x star but its just out of my range on what I want to spend on a boat. I havent heard good things of the x23 wakeboard wake. There was a Supra SE and an MXZ local that I looked at off water and was really impressed with the supra, not so much the MXZ, but its still an option. Is there anything in the XT or NXT line you would recommend, or any other boats i should include in my search?

The x25 is around 22 feet right? I have heard good things on both, but I would like to stick with a large wide bow boat

X25 can seat 2-4 adults pretty comfortably. With a bow filler cushion, you could put 5 kids in there.

Yes, the X25 is just under 22í, and although the bow is large and yes, 3-4 adults could sit up there, the place where I think it misses for you is wakeboard wake. It puts out an amazing pro level wake (at least as good as any other boat Iíve been on a board behind), but it is quite intimidating to beginning riders and Iíve struggled unsuccessfully to find a way to make it softer/smaller/easier. A beginner wake it is not.

This being said, there really isnít much else about the X25 that I donít love.

I like the colors on that x46, but I am near Cincinnati Ohio. That poor boat hasn't even been broken in yet! I sold mine with 950 hrs on it.

I've seen some x25s and they do have a nice interior layout. Thanks for the insight on the wake.

I ended up landing an x46, 2014 only 75 hrs on it! I am in the process of replacing the cracked rear tanks with sacks now. I am pumped for next season. I'm sure we will get some warm fall days in as well. I am trying to post a pic but it looks like it needs resized
