Whos got an x-star? i just bought one for over 100k, and it is without a doubt a peice of the wake is awsome, and it a filthy lookin boat, but boat is built the trash. we have run into numerous problems, the first one was whoever te was who assembled the prop hydrolic arm didnt put a nut on the other side of the joint bolt so the rudder got stuck turned 90 degrees left and made us run over the line, getting it tangled in the prop, then we hit revers to undo the line cuz we couldnt get it and the rudder flipped around and went ding ding ding on the prob, that took 3 weeks to get fixed, and as we were puting it back in the water, i noticed that the 2 inside tower speakers werent working, and the guy from the dealer tried to blame me, but really, he forgot to pug em in, DUMB for the thrid try, we headed out, and ntoiced the boat was sittin low, we open up the rear storage, and wutta know, the bildge pump line cracked and was shooting water into the starboard side storage, and the engine was half way deep in water. this is because some who assembled it, hooked up the wrong batter to the bildge, theres 2 batteries, and your supposed to turn one off when ur done, the one that turns off, was hooked to the bildge, that doesnt work does it. and last but not least, just about a half hour ago we got all ready to go, and BOTH batteries were dead, no juice wut so ever, boat. HAS ANYONE HAD THIS PROBLEM WITH THE X-STAR OR MC IN GENERAL?? please let me know if its just us, or if its mastercraft all the boats up

i think its pretty much just you.

first of all both batteries should be on all the time and you should switch the batteries off when the boat is on the trailer so you dont have a dead battery from leaving something turned on. the dead battery is just from stupidity

also if you know your gonna run over your line why dont you just put the boat in neutral. obviously the driver wasn't paying attention

lastly why dont you not post this on a discussion board and work this stuff out wiht your dealer. know one cares that you paid 100k for your boat, and we can't fix your problems. so next time maybe try to deal with the situation like an adult and understand that these are boats and there will always be some kind of problem.

liie they say. the happiest days is the day you buy a boat and the day you sell it.

it sounds to me like the people who are working on your boat don't know what there doing, or have a bad case of ADD and forget a lot.
i just got a new MasterCraft and i have not had any problems. every thing you buy new will have there own problems you just got a lemon.
good luck with the boat i hope you get it all worked out.

Nick, no offense man, but if those were your two options exactly how you described (and the 205V didn't have crazy high hours), the majority here will tell you you're crazy. Most people will tell you those two boats are equal in quality and wake, and it would be a tough decision equipped and priced equally even if they were both the from the same year. So you basically have a 6 year older boat with no extras, and you only saved 2k. To each his own I guess.

I don't think it's a lemon at all. Those problems are dealer and/or wiring related. You need a new dealer Colin, not a new boat. Only the bad bildge pump line can really be blamed on MC. Do you have another MC dealer in the area you can go to instead?

Since no one has said it yet, let me be the first to say, what the hell were you thinking putting the boat in reverse (or any other gear) to "undo" the rope around the prop?

J-Rod, haha, seriously. If you think these are major problems for a boat, make sure you never own a new boat for more than a year. I bet nearly every boat owner on here has had a worse problem than those. It's a boat.

Put it this way... I live in WA also so i deal with the same dealers and i am on my 3rd x-star. i have had a couple of issues with the boats also but so does every boat, thats boating. IMO MC makes an amazing product. Also there are two dealers that can work on your boat, woodinville and Renton FYI.

dude you should chill bro, i dont care if its a supreme to a sanger to a 100k xstar. all boats have problems, thats why there are warenties. by coming on here and bashing mc will not fix you boat its going to hinder your rep and guess what people will read this forum and it might be the next guy working on your boat, its a small world. if i told you half the problems i had with my first boat you would crap yourself. this forum is for info to help solve your problems and come to a solution wether it be find a knew dealer, mechanic, boat, better your own skills, or whatever. we get enough bs bashing in here. what do you think? you got taken by mc and now your gonna take them down or somthing. relax bro. take a chill pill and what do you care your daddy bought the boat. so if you want help solving problems with your boat think about what you write before the whole world reads it. oh ya tell me how you would feel if the first time you launched your new boat you look at the trailer to find 16 galvi nail head sticking out of the bunk and the bottom of your boat is fffffffffffffffed, weeks of gel coat work later the problems just started. now cry me a river. call me if you need a shoulder to lean on, deal with it or sell it!

i also live in WA and i deal with cope all the time. the renton woodinville and issaquah shops are all owned by cope. try being nice to people they will usually go out of their way to help you. next time you go to the renton shop talk to curt he knows what he is talking about. the issaquah is the new store that only sells MC correct???? i was just talking to one of those guys and he seemed pretty cool, i have never had them work on my boat before but give them a try you might like their service better. just to let you know all the other boat companies have just as many problems.

hey colin first off no worries bro. its funny how people calm down once they get on here and people call them on it. but you need to start imo, with your dad. remember as f'd ass i sounds he did pay for it. so try and keep him stoked. it sounds like your doing a great job for caring for the boat, cleaning it etc. but im sure his frustration is huge right now. remind him its only a boat and the world wont end over this. explain to him that mc is a rep company and these problems will work out. mc wont stiff you. tell him there are other options it sounds like another person is from your area, pm him for further help. if all fails on the dealer end get on the horn to mc directly. also for the future either service your boat yourslf or really take time and find out who people trust in your area for service. and even then before you launch take time to go over your boat and just look for things make sure obvious nuts and bolts are tight. the dealer isnt gonna check the plug for you. lol, jk. and one more thing if your dad is set on selling it, take time to tell your dad how much you love the sport and the boating lifestyle. really get him butterd up over the great times to come in the boat. and hopfully the worst thing that happens is he sells the mc and tries a different boat. good luck kid.

hey blake yeah i no curt, hes nice but to me, it didnt seem like he knew wut he was talkin bout, he blamed me for the tower speakers not working cuz he said i swiveled them 360 3 times when i only swiveled 180, my dad almsot came unglued on him, w/e hes a good guy with his heart int he right spot, he just makes stupid mistakesthe guys in issaquah are extremely nice, but they dont service, a guy named tevor i think me up with the ronix one setup, hes tight, and same with darren, the head guy

Bryan. yeah i keep telling him its not mc, its partly the dealer and whoever assembled it (regarding the rudder prob) but he knows mc is a rep company, he jus thinks hes let me down cuz everytime we try to ride the boat is broken again, even with all of these probs, i love my boat no matter one, it is extremely rare on lake wa and has the sickest wake i wouldnt trade it for anything

thanx for the help bryan

dude seriously. your dad bought a 100k boat? are you kidding me. No offense but you sound like some rich kid that just got a ferrari but was mad it was blue instead of red. Are mastercrafts really in the 100k range? and do they sell more than 1 of them LOL. I'm not trying to bash on anyone but seriously who is buying a 100k boat that isnt a cabin cruiser or something. Sorry guys this just baffles me.

I agree with Rick. Who buys 100k wakeboarding boat?
I dont know if i would be angry about the boat problems or that i just spent 100k on a wakeboat.
All boats have problems from a $5k boat to a $500k boat.

Yeah, $100k MSRP. Do you pay sticker price for a car? If you you pay MSRP for anything you are a fool. My Xstar was $103k MSRP out the door price was about the same as Tige,Supra,Bu etc. They are all within a few K of each other.

Collin, it sounds like you are new to boats and some of the stuff that is happening will be easier to deal with as you get more experience.

I am partly amazed that some of you have said you should expect that kind of stuff going wrong with a new boat though. If I dropped that kind of coin on a boat, I would expect it to be perfect with all the nuts and hoses installed correctly. What does that say about the industry where you should expect 'kinks' like this on equipment that is so expensive????

I guess yet another reason for buying late model used boats....let the first owner deal with the initial problems and depreciation.

has anybody ever put a boat in reverse after tangling the rope? I would think that would either make it worse or for sure split the rope if it wasn't already

His mistake for posting how much they paid. But does it really matter? I see a lot of young people with $800 per month car payments just so they can look like a "Baller."

"that 100k boat is probably worth about 60k by now with depreciation"

I doubt that. X-Stars are pretty expensive used. We just sold our very slightly used X-star for much more than most new boats cost.

Colin said "I'm not trying to bash on MC" What!!
Dude you need to chill out!! After your done watching the Wiggles, go mow the grass for your Dad and then shine his helmet for him when he gets home. Maybe then he wont sell the boat.
BTW is it Colon or Colin, cuz theres been a lot of crap come out you on this thread?
Lets just see some pics , cuz I think a 16yr old with a brand new 100k XStar and only 15 or so posts on WW would have a pic of that brand new MC on his profile. Maybe I'm wrong.

Looks like a lost cause to me, I'd scuttle it, get the insurance money and get a new boat......

A lot of times, boat are never the same being run for who knows how many hours with the tower speakers unplugged. Glad to hear you were safe though.

Good luck with getting any of this resolved.

IMO, your boat was not prepped well at the dealership. The boats come in shrink-wrapped, and its the dealer's responsibility to check the hoses, bilge pumps, nuts, bolts, etc. Did you demo the boat or ask if they had water-tested it yet? Mistakes can and do happen at the dealership level, but calling someone an idiot at the dealership will cost you in the long run. IMO, you need to man up and apologize to everyone you called out, and get the issues resolved so you can enjoy the rest of the summer...

WOW, if I was your father I'd be more concerned about what went wrong with your education rather than not being able to pull you on a wakeboard. As a general rule proper spelling, grammar, and syntax will go a long way towards people taking you seriously here. Finally the amount of water required to have your engine half way underwater would be extreme. That amount would be covering the batteries and ground distribution blocks. I find that quite hard to believe, and if you didn't notice till you were already under way I seriously doubt your boating skills in general.

Come to think of it, I have a 2008 Wakesetter VLX that is in it's fifth day of production. I just sold my 2007 Wakesetter VLX a couple weeks ago. Here is a link:http://www.wakesiderides.com/rides/index.php?page=out&id=526
As you can see I like black. So when I say that I would take your X-Star with all of it's problems and more with no payment (because my dad is making the payment)- I mean it. And if you think my 2008 VLX is going to be without problems? Let me remind you it's one of the first 2008's out of the plant.

First thing is to replace that cracked line and figure out how all that water was getting in there in the first place. Chances are your bilge pump was on all night and killed your batteries.

I don't know how the MC's work, but my SAN has a switch that will bypass the accessory relay and let the bilge pumps stay on for storage.

I'd be concerned if that much water is getting into the hull, there could be a bigger leak elsewhere, like in the ballast intakes or the shaft seal is not correct.

I agree with the ranting a bit, but you really need to communicate properly in order to get useful feedback. It's not uncommon for brand spanking new boats to have some initial bugs that need tinkering. I am surprised your dealer did not water test your boat with you to go over operation.

If your dad wants to sell it, let me know, I will be at your door with a piece of bilge hose, a couple batteries, and an extra 2k in ballast so I can shred every lake between there and Los Angeles on the way home.

Also, you are going to need to speak english clearly when taking it to the dealer to get the bugs worked out. Try to be very clear and let him know there is a leak some place in the boat.

profile says 16, judgin by the way he types.. I am thinking he is a wigger, thug or someone requiring special education!!
Such anger and rude language!!

Making my eyes hurt just reading the poor grammer and spelling!!

What has society done with kids and the reading and writting ability of the english language!!


On a side note... sounds like the dealer didn't do a PDI correctly....these things should have been noticed before delivery!

Greg,
Rap+non-educated wealthy+AIM+texting= youth of america...... odd thing is, my dad would get mad that all I read was wake mags growing up, main reason was the poor editing and poor use of grammar. I now understand.

Don't worry about it, he's just a hater. If this thread were about a CC instead of an MC he would be bashing the CC instead of you.

For some reason new boats always come with a few issues due to oversight. I have no idea why this would be for such a mature industry where the features, technology, and manufacturing and distribution processes have changed so little in decades.

I don't have any experience with airplanes, but somehow I don't think they have this "1st year defects" problem like boats. The automobile industry solved this issue like 20 years ago. Heck, even computers are pretty reliable out of the box these days and they change parts and technology all the time.

It has to be an enormous money pit for dealers and manufacturers to have so many small warranty issues in the first year due to just dumb oversight like hoses not being on right or electrical wiring done incorrectly. Most of this could be avoided with better parts design, manufacturing, and QA. The boat companies and dealers would probably make more money too.

JPK- I would agree, but it's not practical for boats or cars. The new Airbus A380 has been in the production stages for almost ten years. By the time the first one is actually delivered to the airlines almost all cars and boats will have run many model years and actually changed designs again. Do you like the new F-22 Raptor? Pretty sweet, but it's been flying for like ten years. The military took delivery of it's first ones like two years ago. Cars still have lots of bugs the first model years. And my Piece of crap computer locks up all the time. Putting out a new product is hard work and there will always be bugs. Imagine Chevy with their new pickup. They build it and test it for six years and only give them to certain people to work out the bugs. You see them driving around for years, but can't buy one. Then in the last two years of production they make them available to the general public to purchase at dealers. That's why planes are so expensive. Sorry, but I don't think my $75,000 boat needs to cost $6.2 million.

You hate on CC every chance you get. You, my friend are a straight up hater. It's not necessarily a bad thing, but you should come to terms with it or if you are going to say you're not then start acting like it.

billy,

I see you have an 07 X2. That is not normal for the tower to shake like you describe. Is it out of alignement? Meaning if you folded it down does it align with the ski pylon if you were looking down the center. I know of another person who had the same issue and his was misaligned. My tower is rock solid at any speed.
