2018 X-Star Rumors Thread
 
I love reading all the speculation and rumors surrounding the next gen X-Star in other threads. I thought I would start a new thread to dream and guess what the new model will be like. I will start..

23 feet
50th gel scheme
Completely new hull design
More freeboard
4K in sun floor ballast

Super excited to see a 50th Anniversary scheme. But you're probably right with the freeboard/length stuff to compete with the G23.

This should get interesting.

I'm hoping that it has the surf wave of the X23 and the wakeboard wake of the Gen2 X-Star loaded down. I think that would be a winner, especially if they have a lot of freeboard, subfloor ballast, and a lot of storage.

Personally I really hope it's a wakeboard-first, wakesurf-second priority for the Star. Seems like everything is surf-first now :(

Not that I could afford to buy a new 50th Anniversary Star anyway :uglyhamme

I just hope it's not a 22ft boat with 2ft long pickle forks. Lol

I hope they take a new styling direction entirely. Needs to be a compelling reason to buy a Star over a G23, and for me they'd have to find a way to keep the nose down at wake speeds.

Better be a lot better than the gen 3 (03-11) xstar. Some other modern boats like the the vlx has surpassed the xstar in wakeboard wake. Your standard is going to be the G23 or M235

I'm also not a fan of the 2' long pickle points that do nothing. For the star to be competive with the G23 it needs:

- A CLEAN wakeboard wake at all speeds that isn't sensitive and that's also gigantic
- X30 Caliber Surf Wave
- Ton of storage (currently the XT23 has the most)
- 3k or more of SUB floor ballast (no more silly bags)
- killer stereo with 2 subs and 6-8 inboat speakers
- some little touches we haven't seen yet, maybe cooled cup holders or something like that.

I hope they go back OG with the drooped bow.. something about that low speed idle profile of an xstar in the water.
