Can someone please help me as to which boat would be the best for wake boarding and the best wake? 1998 Mastercraft 205 vs 1997 Mastercraft 190, I would really appreciate it.

Also have found a 1996 Mastercraft 205 and a 1995 Mastercraft 205...what do you think would be best out of all of these boats?

The 98 205 has the same hull as the old X-Star/X2. It throws a fantastic wake.

96 or 98 205. The hull differances are slight as far as I know. Stay away from the 95, not a very good hull for skiing or boarding.

'98 205 would be a sick ride and a hands down choice for me.

I use to have a 1995 205 and with about 1100 pounds of phat sacks made a great wake it also skied very well.

I thought that 96 is when they chaged the hull to the current X-2.

No matter what year you buy your going to get the best all round boat on the market.

It was 98-2000, then they did away with the 205dd. I use to have an 00 and loved it. It handled like an indy car and threw a hell of a wake loaded. Had to trade it for more room though.

I used to own a '97 205...just to echo everyone else's recommendations, definitely go with the 205 if you're into boarding. More space, better wake, what else do you need?
