Help needed for Maristar 230 Stereo

I have tried the search function and read for days, but haven't really found a good plan for an overhaul of my 2002 Maristar 230 stereo system.

I have a ND tower with factory lighted ski tow but no speakers wired in, nor do I have a sub or amp with the old Clarion XMD1 head unit. I have just the four factory Clarion speakers currently.

My goal is to have good sound in the boat while driving and riding inside. I have the music project to riders of any kind behind the boat...I'm old and easily distracted, so I like the music off when towing people.

I would like to good balanced sound and do enjoy base in my classic rock, but I don't need to project sounds to the rest of the river nor do I need to have a sub that thumps my teeth loose.

I require Bluetooth and wouldn't mind a Satellite Radio option, but it is not necessary. I also don't have a need for a remote so no complications there.

I would run the wire in the tower and put speakers up there if they provide a better listening experience...but I don't want to run them if it is not necessary.

My budget will stretch as needed, but I would certainly like to keep it below $2000 for speakers, amps and a sub. Does anyone have a similar set up or recommendations for good quality sound that won't break the bank?
