In your experience, what is a "good" price for a leftover '03 X-2 with the engine upgrade(MCX) and tandem trailer, but nothing else. I mean no other options, no perfect pass, no canvas, nothing.

Feel free to e-mail me EJBarlocker@slco.org

Thanks for any help you could provide.

Talking numbers, but we are pretty far away from a number that would have me signing papers.

Maybe something will happen...but I am not betting on it at this point.

Did you get to the boat show?

Ive seen left over 02' X-Star's and X-2's go for as low as $37K but mostly around $40K is what is average.

With no options on it, you should get it for high $30s like maybe $37 or so. Are you planning on installing perfect pass later?

Wilson and Shawn,
I was thinking more than either of you have stated and for the record, my number is not close.
Yes, perfect pass and snap covers are things I would install pre delivery.
May be another season with the I/O....

Yes, I was under the same impression Matt, but found out that it is actually an option.

All the bells and whistles came standard on the 02's. Almost everything was an option on the 03's. I would think you could have that boat with the standard engine for $37k.
How much $ does the MCX add to the price?

EJ,
Why don't you go for an '01. They are pretty much the same boat. I have seen some in the low thirties on the net. It would be better than boarding behind an I/O. .02

If I remember correctly I was told approx. 2k, maybe a bit less. Though I assume that is not MSRP on the upgrade.

I just don't have any desire to try to sell my boat. Rather take the loss on the trade and not deal with the hassel.

If I didn't have my current boat, I would buy this, but it is on consignment.

EJ, when I ordered my 209 in August of 02 the upgrade on the MCX was about $1300...well worth the extra $. Since then that boat was sold and now have a 197 with LQ9, boat had no other option than that engine but I think the upgrade for that engine is 8k....I think that MSRP though and not actual $. Hope that helps.

E.J. Another option. HydroSwift (made in Utah) was at the boat show down here in NorCal a week or so ago and they're coming out w/ a new inboard (vdrive) boat this year. It looked real promising and is using the Calabria purevert ballast system. They were pricing them in the mid 30's to try and break into the inboard market. You should look them up..you may be able to swing an even better deal if you'd agree to demo it for potential customers??? I think the boat model was an "EOS".

Levi,
I missed that boat at the show. Did you take any pics?

E.J. Dont take our words for it. Go talk to a local dealer and/or private party and see what prices you get from them. You never know you might be surprised at what you can get. Good luck.

Scott - Sorry, I didn't. Their website is www.hydroswiftboats.com . They do not have the EOS section up and running yet, but I'm sure if you sent them an email they could get you some pics.

Did just that Shawn, but after our talk, I wanted to hear what numbers others thought were "fair."
What I am hearing is this. Everyone here is low. I am in the middle and the dealer is high. I have no problem with someone making a living, it is how they pay their bills. I just don't want to be the fool.
Whatever, the Cobalt is better than no boat at all.
The wife doesn't even want to get rid of that and had me walking through every cruiser at the boat show....

E.J, I posted this on a topic a while ago about the 03 x-2. I actually picked up a x-2 a few weeks ago for 39k fully loaded with everything except the heater and the shower. It was a left over demo boat with only 40hours on it. I looked forever for this one and then the deal just kinda fell in my lap. The numbers i saw were in the middle 40's for a brand new "left over" But i think if youre gonna spend all that money, hell man, spend the extra couple bucks and buy one with the upgrades. In my opinion its just the way to go. Dont be sorry you didnt.
Haha tell the wife she's gonna look like an angel on an x-2!
