And some more lifted from my dealer's website (www.nefwm.com). Big changes to the sunpad area of the X2 for 2012 with the walkthrough and X25-style storage lockers. Also black and gunmetal flake continues to look awesome.

Man that last black X2 (or whatever it is) is sexy, but damn that tower made me lose my torque.

not at all a fan of the MC. The first one looks like an american flag, tower is ridiculous, HU is asking for a drink to spill in that cubby hole, steering wheel looks like a trailer rim.. all around fail

...but lowering the tower electronically is a pretty slick idea

I love the new helm layout. Compared to our 2011 it is such an improvement. The old layout put the BIG directly in my line of sight which in theory is a good thing but in practice, once I'm towing a rider I don't really need to look at it all that much. Down and to the right is a much better place and the classic gauge layout returns. The extra storage to the left of the steering wheel is nice and while the cupholder above the screen seems like a silly place to put a beverage it would be a great place to put my phone and wallet.

The tower took a couple weeks but it's finally growing on me but it still takes a distant third to the former tower and the power tower, though. I have to say I still like it better than Tige and Nautiques' current two-point options.

Yeah, at least when you drop MC's two point tower you can still drive it an access everything than with the other two point towers which lower right onto the drivers head.

I'm with Diggs, other than the tower, that black boat looks sick. Before I came to that pic, the only thing that I liked about any of the '12 MCs was the steering wheel. They are just gaudy. If those boats said Centurion/Moomba etc. on the side, they would be lucky to see a boat with that tower on them. Fortunately for MC there are enough guys out there that drink the Kool-Aid that they will be able to pump them out.

I have to say that the classic lines of the MB makes me wanna crack a cold one, while looking at the nautiques and mc's makes me wanna puke. Those towers are just awful. Im down with the pickle fork trend, and hell, most of the time I wish i had more room like a lot of these newer boats do. But if the maufactureres keep coming out with all this gaudy electronic, tower assist, ugly lines, type of boat, etc you can bet that I'll be holding onto my 03 for a very very long time.

So they discontinued the best, probably most selling hull in their history?!?!? The X-80 I can understand as that was just dumb, but the X-1? That is just nuts. Maybe they should actually price it at an economic price range. Hopefully they sell that mold to someone who can make a boat for the common man who wants a great wake and hull. Sad sad sad, and then they force that tower down people's throats

Completely agree. I was wondering how this wasn't a bigger deal. First Nautique gets rid of one of the best hulls ever and now MC is getting rid of the original X-Star. It's a real shame too, boat deserved a better send off.

Was fortunate enough to see all the new Supra and Moomba products at the dealer meeting and am a huge fan of the new Mojo.

Love that black/silver X25. Not a huge fan of that tower, but it looks better on the X25 than on the bigger boats. I'll reserve my final opinion on the tower for when I see one with a z5 mounted on it. I always thought the FCT3 tower on the 230's looked retarded until I saw one with a z5 on it.

Don't think I'll ever like those shock boot things though. Looks cheap, reminds me of a set of yamaha ttr 125 front forks, and will probably be a biatch to clean once they get sunscreen on them. You'd think with all the bling they put in their boats, MC would have come up with some billet aluminum 1000 piece engraved ultra complex polished telascoping thingamagig to use instead of a .39 cent shock boot.

I'd like to think so, but not really sure anymore. Still own the old one, so I guess I'm a "back when MC was cool" MC guy.

The Black/Silver boat above is the X15. The interior is a disaster. Whats with all the diamonds everywhere? Seats, Walk thourgh door, glove box. There are a half dozen different metal finishes; chrome, brushed alum, billet alum, polished, powdercoated and machined! The cupholder above the touch screen is ignorant. Can you even fit a red bull can up there without it hitting the windshield? A 4 point steering wheel is not user friendly or pleaseing to the eye. Cupholders on the transom and a sun pad walk through? Man thats something I really missed on my 06 X2, how did I ever live without that? Thats just one more thing to try and keep clean. The tower. Oh the pain it gives me! The ZFT3 will be greatly missed.

Needless to say, the 2012 MCs wont be on my shopping list in the spring. MB?

Ahhhh. You're right Adam. I couldn't see that first didget real well because it blended in with the hull. Now that I look closely, I guess that boat's not a picklefork. Duh.

With them getting rid of the X1, I hope MC has plans to accommodate customers with an <21ft option other than the X2. I bet we start seeing a lot more length limits on smaller bodies of water, and all these 21-22ft'ers will be saturating the market with people trying to get rid of them.

I heard that the reasoning behind killing the X1 is that the Ilmor engine wouldn't fit. Having just sold a 2004 X2 I can safely say there is still a lot of demand for that hull out there and if it wasn't so small it probably wouldn't have been sold in the first place. It's a shame but time marches on.

the new tower on the mc looks better on the black x15. still not a fan of the shock boots, would rather see the chromed cylinder rod insted. agree with chat on the z5 bimini. the cup holder location is ok for maybe a cell phone but i would prefere my drink in the shade where its nice and cool. water or soda of course.

on a differnent note lets find some pics of the new malibus, now thats what i am looking forward too.

What my MC dealer told me is basically MC is no longer looking at selling to the regular guy. They feel that you buy a more expensive boat allegidly lose less in depreciation because its an MC so that when you turn around and sell it your only out a minimal depreciation compared to everyone else except CC. Also a plan to do a scaled down X2. So my guess an X2 that might be in the mid 50s to mid 60's. As roomy as an X2 is I think my 02 x star smokes it as a boat for watersports. The only place it loses is at cruising. This should help the 205v hull market.

I do not see myself upgrading from my '09 X-Star. Why does it seem interior and dash panel seems to get uglier as time goes on, what a shame. Do not like the tower either.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think that black x15 looks great. I think it would have looked better with the power tower and best with the zft3, but I'd still take it as it sits (you know...if it weren't close to $100k).

I just bought my 2007 x15 this year, and I am pretty sure it will be the only Mastercraft I'm going to own. I think its a great boat and I love everything about it, but the new ones are getting to be too crazy expensive, and a little too blinged out.

I think that MB is really looking great. If I were out to buy a brand new boat tomorrow, MB would be at the top of my list, and maybe even the only one on my list. It just seems like you get more boat for your money than anyone else. Their market share has to be growing like crazy.

Malibu, why so much space wasted on a seat on the transom? That has to be the least amount of cabin space for any boat under 22'.

The new bu looks very edgy. Not sure I like the back sun deck but we will have to see. Hope the room behind the widow is as good as a vlx or better. Looks like the x25 has some comp this boat season.

I used to hate on the back 'disco' seats on the transom as well. My local lake cops would jump my stuff if I sat back there while someone was surfing. However, I spent a week with an X-25 on Norris Lake this summer and sat back there all the time while people were surfing. I used the cupholders, sat comfortably, feet in the water on a hot day....it was sweet. That being said, it's not gonna fly on all lakes, but I gained a new appreciation for that style of transom.

A little off topic, but the X-25 is a WAKE machine....best wakeboard wake with stock ballast I've ever ridden behind...and that's saying alot. Of course, for nearly 6 digits it better be.

Seems like everything is generally going to end up looking like something else until somebody comes up with something crazy that everyone will hate at first, but then grow to love and start copying at some point. It's a lovely cycle and it is pretty cool IMO to see how the same general ideas can be done in completely different fashion. Keep the pics coming I love looking at new boats.

i like the flip ups on the 25 and yes the stock wake is very very good. maybe the best stock out there. and yes for almost 6 digits it better be amazing. the think i am not liking about the new bu is that without the flip option you have little to no sundeck. not that i sunbath but i love seeing the ladies back there if you know what i mean. i guess they will be in the front now but a mirror shot is always priceless.

norris is one nice lake. i just love how its so clear and so laid back. you can go all day and not see one twra. douglas is pretty laid back as well but on many lakes sitting back there will get you pulled in a second. i guess we are lucky to be on such laid back lakes.

Dude, I would be more worried about collapsing from carbon monoxide poison than anything else if I sat on one of those seats all day while people were surfing...

their windshield design is pretty ironic. one of their major pitches when adopting the illusion tower and the one piece wrap around windshield was that the driver has an uninterrupted view forward. fast forward to the vented windshield they use now and it appears that the sales pitch was just that...a sales pitch. if 4 point towers really caused such an obstruction, dont you think that auto makers would have found a way to get rid of the A pillars in cars to improve safety?

We have a 2012 SAN 210 Team Coastal Edition being built right now. I will post pictures as soon as I get them. The ILINC version 2 on the new Nautiques is absolutely sick. Nothing else on the market comes close IMO.

As the the tower on Nautiques, I wasn't a fan of the first Roswell FCT-3 tower (2009-2010). I opted for the FCT-2 Titan in 2009 when the Roswell was first offered because I thought the new tower sucked. The revision in 2011 to the FCT-5 and even more fine tuning in 2012 is awesome, especially with the Z5 cargo bimini.

Here are some additional 2012 Nautique pictures.

I have a RZ2 and it might look close but not that close.

I like the Malibu a lot except for the bow. I've never been a fan of the pickle fork at all. Glad Nautique hasn't went that way. Always reminds me of the Batplane in the first movie. "Where does he get those toys?" Haha.

that 'bu is a let down for me.... triple fork looks hideous and that two tier sun deck seems like a waste of space the way I see people (mainly girls) lay on them in a linear row. I understand "steps" but this is not practical to me. As always though, I think the interior seems extremely legit.

yup you are correct. I just looked it up on bu's site. Idk how I feel about that horn speaker without a grill protecting it, but i def thought they were just the old alphas.

I don't like the tower on the MC or the MB. The one on the MC is just flat out ugly. On the MB, it may be the camera angle, but the front legs on the tower look way long.

Maybe this will help.I don't think the Malibu looks like a RZ2 in the front.

That Bylery is sharp. It would look good at my dock but I cannot put something behind my house with someone else name all over it. That's what stalkers and 10 year olds do.

More 2012 stuff:

For 2012, Axis has offered the following changes:

Redesigned glove box
New surf platform
New trailer wheels - KMC Rockstars
New graphics
New OJ five blade prop option
New footwell under the driver - accomodates a 12'' sub
New soundpack options (Soundpack III includes, yes, all wetsounds interiors, 12'' sub and 485's on the tower - syn 6 and syn4 straight from the factory)
New big motor option - Inmar 450hp LS3.

Way to go Axis - just making it that much easier to slam these boats and make huge, clean, wakes and surf waves - as well as hear your music while riding!
