Super good deal headsup

Why? Seems overprice for a VTX. Shop around, you can get same year VLX or LSV for around the same price

Really?! With those hours I haven't see anything under 45K and I've been looking for a while.

I found the Waterski Mag featured 2007 VTX for $48k on onlyinboards. I think it is still there.

Hours don't really scare me to be honest as long as they're not excessive. Average hours for recreational users are 50hrs per season. 07 with 70hrs kinda makes me wonder.

Not only is it not a great deal, it looks like a Pop Yachts listing, meaning it can be bought for several thousand less if you can find a listing by the actual seller. Looks like a fairly low optioned boat - from just what you can see from the pictures: no bow ballast, manual wedge, LCR motor, fixed bow light, no docking lights, no tower speakers, no heater, no shower, no STE, no tower lights.

I have a loaded up 2010 VTX that I'm looking to sell for $50k with 130 hours.

I'll agree. I expect at least 25 hours per year. Anything less and I worry that the boat was not taken care of. In my experience, if it's not being used, it's not being taken care of.

This deal aside, the VTX is in higher demand than both those boats and they probably have the least depreciation of the entire lineup. Factors being they were brand new in '07 and aside from the nautique 200 they haven't had any competition since the last 2 years. So if that's what you want (and a LOT of people/families do) than its your best if not your only option.

I have a reasonably big crew that I ride with most summers, I have a hard time imagining us in a 20ft boat when we currently use a 23ft. My old vlx was perfect, but could have been bigger.

That said, I've never been in a VTX.

I found a 2012 VTX awhile ago with 23 hours orange and black for $50k. Almost all options except tandem trailer. Don't know what happened to it. Probably sold quick.

I think Gull Lake has a new 2012 VTX still. Pretty sure that's where I saw it. Don't know price though.

Bought my 07 as an 08 runout. Paid 42 NEW with a 340, wedge, stereo and other nice bits. It's the outrageous price of new models which is driving up prices of these older models. If you can get into something newer for even 15 K more you will do better in another 6 years.

You also bought in a rare time when the housing market was crashing and the economy was in the toilet; all boats were selling for dirt cheap then. You got in at the right time and I tell my wife that I wish we were in the market around that time for a boat.

Yeah big negative is pop yachts. Those guys are horrible.

Second, yeah price isn't great. I was about to buy a 07 vtx at the start of the season, loaded, for 42k.
