This boat was purchased a little over a month ago and it is rediculously sick!

so I have been searching around for about two years now to upgrade from my direct drive supra launch and finally this is the boat I wound up with!

Looked at and tested multiple xstars, mb f21s and nautique 230s throughout these two years and it was very difficult to decide.

i tested each wake slammed out and the xstar came out on top, then the mb and then the 230. (all great wakes btw)

it was extremely difficult to find a good price on the xstars so we almost pulled the trigger on the mb due to the great wake and great price. but i hopped on craigslist randomely and this 2005 xstar popped up 8.1l engine, z5 bimini, subs, ect. with only 150 hours! i thought it was too good to be true especially because it was priced much lower than the mbs. i low balled the guy through multiple fake emails i made and got the price dropped even more! then went to test the boat and everything was great! bargained some more for a super good deal, and now the boat sits in my driveway

bought an acme 2243 prop and installed a plug and play system myself, added some lead weight and some sacs on the floor. over 5k of weight and that engine pulls it out of the hole with ease. this boat is a machine and throws a monster wake

couldnt be happier

Multiple fake emails? So are you saying you posed a number of times as someone else, made offers well below asking price so you could then make a real offer that was even lower?

Welcome to craigslist my friends. At least he didn't offer trades for the random stupid crap he has around his house.

Beatiful boat. Wow that is a huge difference in prop size. What was the factory prop?

I like the mismatched trailer wheels. They say "wake gangsta" to me.

(seriously!)

Sweet boat. Betcha it could pull a house with that 8.1.

I heard the older X-stars have gone up in value since the release of the new 2012 X-star failure! You will probably make money on that boat! Sick looking ride, enjoy and have fun this summer!

p.s. I also like the mismatched trailer wheels!

Such a sick looking boat J.B.! Would love to see ya in an MB but something that make you happy is SO much worth it. Love the white with the black hull (same as my MB) and the monster engine. Congrats with the upgrade form the direct drive homi. Hammers about to be thrown!

fake emails with low offers didn't force the guy to sell anything. Good job.

Paul have you ever heard of a little thing called ethics?

In many situations what JB did would land him jail.

Why? Its not like the guy was forced to sell his boat. He's an adult who made his own decesion..

LMFAO. No it wouldn't.

Put yourself in the sellers position. You know what you will take for the boat from the get go. If you don't get that offer, you don't sell. If the OP somehow screwed up other, better, legit deals, that would be a different story. I don't see how he could have done that though.

Yes in many situations it would land him in jail.

In this situation it would not.

The basic behavior he is displaying is that of manipulation.

Weighting a boat is just manipulating the wake, what of it? Landing a 3 is just manipulating the line. Combusting 93 octane is just manipulating physics and chemistry. Your point?

Sick boat man, congrats on getting a good deal. Don't worry about the people who are questioning your tactics.

Condrads on the boat man. Like how he posts to show of his new boat and gives the story of how he got it and people "could go to jail". Again nice boat and enjoy it.

Last time I checked something is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it. If the guy had a better offer he was free to take it.

Manipulation is not illegal, fraud is. Luckily for JB (and the seller) neither took place.


JB: I'm looking forward to some more videos!

How funny is it that a person named John Marshall is trying to tell everyone what is legal and illegal? Maybe only the history buffs will get this one.

Props to the guy buying a boat at a cheaper price. Is it illegal for dealers to sell one car at MSRP and another identical car for much cheaper? No but it should be right.

Good buy JB.
How much of a deal was it? My dad snagged one (05 8.1 as well) in 2010 for 31ish I believe. Yours looks to be in a bit nicer condition.

What ballast setup are you running? We just started running a big nosebag in the center of the boat and that has made the wake so much fun to ride it's ridiculous.

congrats. the 8.1 is dope. You can probably add another 5,000 pounds. Never once did we have a problem getting on plane. Never.

I really like the boat but I think you should ditch the dated graphic on the side and roll clean with just the small chrome mastercraft logo where it currently is.
