    Thanks. I actually used that site to help determine value of boat and was pleasantly surprised with what it came back with. Also, when measuring boat, do you include swim platform? That will help me narrow down exactly what I have. I ask because I saw this on a certain website:
    Some states do this differently, as do some lakes, some HOAs, and different brands, but in general yes hull length should be from the bow of the boat to the end of the molded hull inclusive of molded in swim platforms - but that is not always specifically the case.

    Nettles or Wakemakers have been my go to for best prices. Acme or OJ props available.

    Your mileage may vary.

    It's a 200 and not a 225/230 for sure. The longer Maristars would have the seat wrap around to behind the driver seat and be on a tandem trailer. You won't see any 23 footer on a single axle trailer; at least, I haven't seen one yet.

    Nice boat. I loved the second gen Maristars with the non-integrated platforms. I was actually looking for one I was looking for a replacement of my gen 1 Maristar but ended up with a pickle fork X2.

    Length should not include swim platform unless it's part of the hull.

    Not sure if this is 100% accurate but I use this NADA site to tell what boat models were offered what years. HP isn't right because multiple engines were offered on some models but still a useful reference.

    That's definitely the hull of the 210VRS, which I suppose was called the 200VRS in 1998. It's the same hull as the 210VRS and X10 up until 2006. Anything regarding ballast setup would be the same.

    Nice that you got one that had the carpet replaced with GatorStep.

    Good looking boat! Welcome to the MC community. What you have is a Maristar 210vrs. Amazing boat for skiing, wakeboarding, surfing (w/the right set up), & just general boating. I grew up on a 230vrs, essentially the same boat just 2 feet longer. I cannot say for certain that the VRS means anything more than a fancy way to indicate it's a V-drive and the "210" refers to its 21 foot length. I read somewhere that the initial nomenclature stood for "vibration reduction system" in the early maristar models and it stuck. As far as I know that could be 100% wrong. That being said the maristar's were considered a luxury product and luxury products tend to emphasize smoothness.... So there could be some credibility there.

    Anyways, you've got a great boat. Who cares what it's called, enjoy it! That's what they're for.

    The SV has a swivel observers seat.

    The VRS has wrap around seating with aft-facing observers seat.

    Mastercraft only offered the Maristar in 200vrs, 225sv and 225vrs in 1998. The 200 is 21' and the 225 is 23'. The 225 also has rear seating that wraps around behind the drivers seat.

    I have a 1998 Maristar brochure in pdf if you want me to send you a copy pm your email address.
