Probably haven't seen this color combo yet...

runin90lx 03-05-2013 2:34 PM

that blue is sharp!!

craigtxmc 03-05-2013 2:39 PM

thanks bill... you doin ok?

d_h_wake 03-05-2013 2:43 PM

WOW, I can't believe my eyes!!!!!!! SICKKKKK Where is this located?

downfortheride 03-05-2013 2:51 PM

Nothing beats the flake of MC!

MattieK27 03-05-2013 2:54 PM

That boat (in my opinion) would look so much better if it was just blue, and all the green was replaced by white. Best of luck with resale on that "unique" scheme...

grant_west 03-05-2013 2:54 PM

Wow; looks like a SeaHawks edition. Not a fan but I'm sure if it had a Plasti Dip tower. It would be super DOPE Sick iLL!

runin90lx 03-05-2013 3:01 PM

Craig..doing good! just waiting for these cold nights to disappear so i can get the boat in the water again.

DYLLLON..that is at Texas Mastercraft. home of the best looking mastercraft schemes ever!

snork 03-05-2013 3:10 PM

love the interior Craig

monroeyd 03-05-2013 3:21 PM

It does indeed look nice; however, what happens if you end up needing a small gel coat repair? The repair will never, ever match! It's not like an MC never gets stress or spider cracks.

Want to see on water!!!:banghead:

johnny_defacto 03-05-2013 5:14 PM

Hope you have a buyer already for that thing. You have oredered some sharp boats before, but this is the opposite....

nitrousbird 03-05-2013 7:02 PM

I'm not digging that color combo at all. Looks just tacky IMO.

I didn't realize how little floor space these new X-stars have. That's a 24' boat and there is barely any space Bow has a lot of space though.

tripsw 03-05-2013 7:28 PM

Attention wh0reboat? Tacky is also a good way to describe it.

simplej 03-05-2013 8:29 PM

I like flash and this is too much...

craigtxmc 03-05-2013 9:04 PM

This was a customer ordered boat... It's pre-sold.

kstateskier 03-05-2013 9:31 PM

I didn't think there was anyway you put that scheme together.

Geee... I wonder who in Texas might spend that kind of coin on a color scheme like that?

machloosy 03-06-2013 4:53 AM

The hating is intense.... Boat looks very sharp and the MC flake is just about guaranteed to make for a happy customer. On the water shots would be cool!

wakebordr11 03-06-2013 5:30 AM

I think it looks great. I am a big fan of the color scheme. I think it would look great on the water - I am not into the lime green trailer and chrome rims though. A dark grey trailer with accent colors to match and some gun metal rims would add some class... the trailer is too much for me.

Love the interior, simple and classy. What's up with MC Tower Speakers? Premium boat, I'd expect premium audio stock...

Fixable 03-06-2013 5:55 AM

I think it would look excellent, if all the green was black! :D

whiteflashwatersports1 03-06-2013 6:55 AM

Good luck on resale - The MC tower looks like such an afterthought . WTF

Andrew14 03-06-2013 7:08 AM

Great looking new Star - you guys always order the sickest boats (and I'm a Nautique fan).

cbarguy1 03-06-2013 8:05 AM

Thanks for posting Craig, keep em coming. I'm not a fan of that one but the new star is starting to grow on me. The Seahawks comment was spot on.

I want to see a black/red flake/white one, like my 40th, which has completely spoiled me.

craigtxmc 03-06-2013 11:53 AM

Anybody got Cuban's cell number? lol I'll give him a call..

I've got a nice gray/orange boat coming later today... Looked pretty good imo

MICAH_HARPER 03-06-2013 11:59 AM

I like it

wakecumberland 03-06-2013 1:00 PM

I can picture the customer reviewing his order....

White
Lime Green
Canadian Blue Flake
Black
Silver
Lime Green Trailer

Yeah! That will look awesome! :rolleyes:

Luckily we dont need anyones approval in picking boat colors (except maybe the wife). At least we have a few freedoms left :D

I like that 40th look a lot.. Nice work on that one.

This one will be here in a few weeks. Not quite as much flake but still red flake.

This one just went through our dealership last week. The customer picked the colors and we did a little rearrange with the decals.

kstateskier 03-07-2013 1:39 PM

Did MC quit building their own trailers? I see all of these are rolling on BoatMates. I guess I missed this news.

edgeski1 03-07-2013 2:43 PM

i like the Blue/green combo. looks great IMHO

Here's another one about to leave.... Charcoal/Orange/Black

tn_rider 03-08-2013 1:29 PM

Put charcoal flake on that thing and keep the interior and it's money.

snork 03-08-2013 2:48 PM

Soooo nice, drool'n

dezul 03-08-2013 3:01 PM

I just popped a major chub seeing that black/orange/charcoal boat. That guy must be an Oklahoma State fan. Go Pokes!!!

illini88 03-08-2013 4:21 PM

That interior on the orange, gray, and silver is sick. My only question would be whether there's too much black fiberglass on the interior. I'd think that could get a little warm.

tripsw 03-08-2013 8:16 PM

Exterior on that one is MUCH better! Imo, of course. Probably nicest color combo I've seen on an X-star. Interior so-so.

downfortheride 03-09-2013 6:57 AM

For such great looking boats I don't get the tower :banghead:

I think in person the tower looks better and from a functional aspect, it's one of the best towers made. Super easy to fold, high so you don't bump your head on the speakers all the time and solid.

I would say your quote could apply to the new MBs. Love the boats but I don't care for the towers. Their old 4 point was pretty dated and the new 2 point is too square for my liking but I bet it functions better.

SCA 03-11-2013 10:31 AM

Just went to the Sac boat show. IMHO.. Mastercraft looks absolutely terrible. It reminded me of an old Simpsons episode where Homer gets to design his own car, it puts everything possible on it, looks like crap, and costs a fortune. That tower looks like it belongs on a transformer. To each their own.. Ill take a clean Sanger or Malibu over what MC is offiering..FWIW, Nautique was almost just as bad.

That looks SO much better without the XStar graphic! Now just fix the X graphic and it might be a pretty dang sexy boat! :D

.

Not sure if it's one of the best towers made.. unless you're ranking top 10. Of the boats I tested - it moved by far the most. Go grab it and pull, it flexes and moves like crazy.

I havent seen them in person, but I cant get over the lines on the boat, let alone the tower. But, people must like it, because they still sell them:confused::p

bryce2320 03-11-2013 5:08 PM

That being said tho, the fit and finish of the interior look to be top notch!!

Is the X Star Logo a raised sticker or is it just straight cut vinyl?

It's a raised sticker.... Like a lot of the other drip mold decals that MC uses.

tampawake 04-09-2013 7:18 AM

Thanks Eric I am taking all the stickers off my old school X Star wet sanding buffing and thinking of replacing them with these.

pc_sledge 04-09-2013 3:20 PM

Does anyone have any pics of a new Xstar with the power tower and the Z5 cargo bimini?

pc_sledge 04-09-2013 3:22 PM

The standard tower still has not not grown on me and the standard biminis look cheap compared to the new boats design, IMO.

Its got the Z5 but has the standard tower, not the power tower

pc_sledge 04-09-2013 4:55 PM

I love the last boat posted in this thread, which is unusual because i'm typically not a fan of blue on boats. Love the triaxle trailer and the tower, the bimini supports just look so cheap and flimsy in comparison to the hefty looking power tower.

pc_sledge 04-09-2013 4:56 PM

that 1st pic of it off the back end is awesome.

Thanks Brett!

I can agree with you about the Bimini..... I am not a big fan of it. In fact, I liked the 2011, and 2012 "duckbill" bimini a lot better, even though the supports were really not any bigger.



I don't think they have a Z5 for the power tower yet..... I asked about it, and they said it wasn't available yet.

jagermeister 04-10-2013 6:36 AM

Not sure if your going to see a Z5 for the power tower.. Z5 (of Florida) sold off last year to XTP (Xtreme Products) aka: Monster Tower.. Seems to be more proprietory now.. But maybe..

HighVoltage 04-10-2013 7:39 AM

I like that one! White trailer looks really clean. Not crazy about that gray bimini though.

migs 04-24-2013 1:25 PM

^^ black Z5 bimini would complete that boat proper.

craigtxmc 04-24-2013 2:59 PM

Just tried to keep the cost down a bit with the smaller motor and factory bimini. I'm a big fan of the Z5 too...

Tony711 04-24-2013 7:29 PM

Wow, so clean! I love these color schemes. Classy and mean!

zacharoo 04-25-2013 6:37 AM

I like that 40th look a lot.. Nice work on that one.

This one will be here in a few weeks. Not quite as much flake but still red flake.
