I talked with a dealer who claimed the new X-star will be coming out next year. Just wondering what everyone would change.
I had an 06 SANTE and was not impressed with the changes int eh 07 and newer. Although i have learned to love them now, i was just wondering what changes people would love and hate to see in the new X-star.
I would like to see the following:
Removable cooler like in the X-25 or Naughtys
Similar JL Audio interior set up but wired correctly w/ enough amps to power them correctly
More interior space, smaller sun pad
Plug and Play ballast option w/ enough space for Pro Tour bags
Like the speakers to remain higher in the sidewalls rather than near the floor.
Standard Z-rack bimini with an option for a traditional fold up style
Some way to mount additional racks to the tower without it looking retarded
Push button combination start...like the nautiques. I forget my keys on occasion.
Sturdier Tower, pre-wired correctly for tower speakers.
Mesh seats like the Tige for the driver seat.
Would love to see a decent surf wake!
Don't Want to see:
A screen of any sort. I personally don't like them that much. I know others love them, but this is my list!
Rear faced adjustable seating areas. I like the traditional setup. Although I do love the 230 interior, i still prefer the traditional setup.
Sinks and wetbars....
No foils, tabs, etc.
No tribal, flame or skull graphics. Just clean lines and graphics.
I have also been wondering what the chances are that they will make any major changes to the hull. Nautiques got away with it on the 210, but the original was very small and the boat needed to grow. The X-star is a decent size boat, but the large sun pad takes away interior space. I wonder if they will just revise that portion of the boat to add space inside and leave the hull as is. Seems risky to mess with it.
