On the Mastercraft side, Prostar 214 is really your only option. For other manufacturers, the Malibu Response LXi would be the closest fit to your 209. Ski Nautique 206 is another option.

No security cameras??
Neighbor in SLC had a Response LXi - Very decent.
I had an X9. Feel your pain with the "tweener" hull. The difficult part is finding something in decent shape.

Did you have a lock on the trailer? I know a lock can easily be cut but I found it odd that my factory MC trailer did not have a place for one.

What sort of theft deterrents do people use to prevent this?

In 25 years of boating, I've never had my registration checked. If you lived on a small lake you could have a hot boat forever and probably get away with it.

Damn. That sucks, easily one of the best-looking MCs I've seen.

What happens to stolen boats like this? Are they loaded into a shipping container bound for another county? Wrapped and resold? Parted out?

There are a few lock options available. The normal way is the standard padlock, albeit small one. This would go where the coupler safety pin would go. It also serves to lock the trailer to your tow vehicle.

Another option covers the entire coupler, and is probably the most secure as this would be the most difficult to cut off. You can also chain the wheels to the frame.

Sucks about the boat! Canít believe some people...

The dealer I bought my boat from said most coupler locks can be easily defeated.

However he said an easy deterrent is to simply take the pin out of the folding tongue. It isnít generally available and most thieves canít jury rig anything to quickly replace it.

As a 2004 Response LXI owner, you'll be disappointed in the gunwall and bow height.

NOW, A Sunsetter LXI, is a different story. But it is like a 209 or 214, hard to find.

Sorry for your lose.

Iíve got a bunch of time behind a sun setter LX, and it is actually a really awesome ďdo it allĒ boat.

A GPS tracker under the dash would have been useful. Sorry, I hope they find the **** faces
