    how reliable are the 2008 Ultra 250X

    I have an opportunity to buy one NEW heldover. I was looking at purchasing 2-STX15F but if I can do this I might jump at it for one of them.

    Are the as playful of boat as the STX15F with the deeper keel??

    the 250 is a heavier ski and is better for offshore ride but is alot less reliable then the 15f do to SC. The 260x is a better ski IMO

    I have an 07 250x and never had any issues ...and still don't . Was told the 08 were better so take it for what it is . The best skies break down , guess it's the way you take care of it that really counts !

    Yes, it is all about maintenance on any machine, especially on watercraft.
    BTW, how is '08 better?
    The 2010 260 is significantly improved comparing to all 07-09 250/260.

    if your first question is about reliability, stick with the 15F.
