I found the price difference to be waaaay more than that perhaps it's geographic
It was about 40 k more for a similarly equipped x30 compared to my LSV
When you factor in my trade in, it was about 50k. And trust me, I battled on that price
It must be regional. 1-2 years ago I stopped by the MC dealership and they had a decently equipped X30 for 85K. That would have stacked up pretty close to a nicely equipped LSV.
MC in the past had a strange practice of giving a dealership a certain number of boats and that was it. Period, and whether you wanted them or not. So dealerships that sold their inventory quickly could afford to jack up the prices on the few they have left due to simple supply and demand. Struggling dealers then provided deep discounts because more boats keep on coming in whether you sell them or not. I am not sure that is still the case, hopefully they learned something from the recession.
The non-power tower sort of grew on me in the short time I was there. Not having the shock covers that looked like they came off of a 1986 Enduro motorcycle gives it a huge plus. The Salt Lake dealership told me that at that time they only ordered power towers when specifically asked by a customer, since they have been such a nightmare.
