A family friend is boat shopping. He's got a co-worker who is very much a mastercraft fan. His budget is $25ish. Family is two adults and four kids. He wants a vdrive and that's about all he knows other than mastercraft (which a co-worker is apparently pounding into him incessantly).
They want to ski, wakeboard and surf. Skiing will likely never get beyond recreational. What's the best mastercraft that fits that budget and intended use?
He has been looking specifically at the X10 (which looks awfully small for a large family). Will that hull surf OK?
I've suggested that he also take a look at a 2000-03 malibu wakesetter lsv, but his co worker has him drinking the mastercraft coolaid pretty hard. The lsv appears to have much more room than an X10.
Any other suggestions out there?
