Illusion X Tower Replacement


Recommended Posts

We need to replace the cracked Illusion X tower on our 2007 Wakesetter 23 LSV. Anyone have a source for finding a USED one? My understanding is that the original manufacturer of the Illusion X is no longer, and I'm trying to avoid replacing with a "different" tower if I can help it. Any suggestions or leads would be very much appreciated!!

Metcraft went out of business years ago.  They are hard to come by.  Every once in a while I seen them pop up on CL.  I saw a new one off a Supreme in marketplace earlier this year.  If you find one double check the beam on it. 
 

Your best bet is finding a good welder and repairing it.

Years ago the Illusion tower on our 2008 cracked, could not find a replacement.  It was suggested that it could be welded and re-powder coated. but we ended up getting a g3 tower to replace it.  Killer on the budget in general, but even more so if you have accessories on the tower as we had to buy a new bimini, speakers, Sampson mirror.  All the old stuff sold here or on CL, including the cracked tower.     The G3 gives the boat a little updated look.

Did you get the G3 through your dealer? How much?

Yes through the dealer.  I know I have the paperwork, but could not find it.  It was in 2012, but I believe it was $5500 for the tower.
