  • Next boat?

    Hi Team Talk.

    I am looking for a new to me Surf/Ski/Wakeboard boat. We surf 50%, Wakeboard 30% and ski 20%. I will be towing it to a lake 5 minutes away 2X per week and up to our cabin, every other weekend. This will be the 1st V-drive my 13yer old and wife learn on. My budget is $45-$75K. We will have the boat for 5 yeas.

    We are considering the following boat.

    2013-2015 X30
    2015-2017 NXT22
    2013 SAN 230 w/NSS
    2013-2015 LSV 23

          LSV would be my choice of the ones you listed. The wakeboard wake with the wedge up is great for beginners. Plumb in 1100’s over the hard tanks and put the wedge down and the wake is pro level.

            I’ve spend a ton of time in a lsv and yes it’s a good boat and yes it can produce a good wake, but I’ll take a X30 over it everyday, and twice on Sundays. Especially with surfing 50% if the time and his budget allowing him to get into a gen2 x30, I think this is a no brainer.

              For 75K you might find a 18 NXT22? Solid and like the others listed, with some added weight or large crew, will throw a great wave.

                Not a bad idea if warranty is a priority. That carries over, right?

                  Surf wake with the 1100s on the X30 is better than any loaded 23LSV I’ve been on, that’s for sure


                  Of course you can only see this if you live in AUS

                    Warranty is transferable from 1 owner but that is it.

                    I like what MC has done with the nxt22, and for most it is a great way to get into a new boat for significantly less than the x or xt series. Personally I would recomend to anyone looking at these options to spend a lot of time looking at both in person. If you're a person who doens't need all the bells, whistles, and bling then the nxt line is great and will get you in a new boat with a warranty. If warranty isn't as big of a deal and you perfer a boat that's decked out with all the bling that's been well taken care of then the 13-15' X30 is a better choice. If i was in this position I would be looking at a X30 that's been well taken care of, I haven't had many issues with the used boats I've owned so far so warranty isn't as big of an issue to me even though it is awesome when needed. The nxt lines still perform good but they aren't going to touch the surf wave of a x30, and I like having my beer in a cup holder by my hand, not down by my feet.

                    Not knocking the nxt series but its really a matter of personal preference as to what you want out of your boat. For the OP I would suggest doing your research and spend time looking and demo'ing the nxt22, X30, and LSV before making your decision. I think we can all here agree that those 3 models are the top choices over a SAN.

                      When I looked at the new ones at that time I looked at a NXT23 and the XT23 and on the new boat the difference was negligible I know it is a lot of money but for a little more you can find a really good deal on a new one. I don't know if you are paying cash or financing but if financing the difference in the payment will not be that much. If you have cash that is a different story.

                      But as said definitely look at both or all before. I think I have still seen some 17's around that I bet they would want to move for cheap(relatively speaking of course)

                      good luck

                        You can turn any Vdrive into a decent surf boat with the right amount of weight and surf contraption. Good wakeboarding boat that throws a clean wake at all speeds wether its for a beginner or pro is a different story. That is why I would never buy a boat just for its surf wave.

                            National advertised nxt22 deal right now is $69,995 for a 2019. I'm not sure how equipped that is though.

                              Thanks BudmanV24.

                              I just sold a Tige R21 that I purchased new. So I am looking to avoid dealer fees and the $5-7K in sales tax. Lots of people dumping these NXT22's not sure if its to upgrade? Ive also heard you need to slam them to produce a decent surf wave.
