A 2002 Maristar 230, needs a face lift with the X series tools.

Ballpark: what is the cost of doing the bridge and speakers (no tanks) with genuine MC parts or good aftermarket parts.

Thanks

Should be the factory tower from that year. Price for speakers depends on how many and what type you go with. Don't forget to add the cost of an amp as well.

Go with ND tower and racks!!


speakers are like a race car. how fast you want to go, and how much money you got to spend?

Here's an estimate (I had a '03 Maristar 230 myself)

TOWER..............$ 2,000-4,000 depending on brand
SPEAKERS..........$ 800-1,000 / pair (go with Wetsounds or NVS)
AMP..................$ 200-400

If you have any serious wakeboarders in your crew, you will want some ballast bags. I'd go with (2) v-drive sacs in rear ($200/pair) add one in the ski locker and at least one 500 lb. fat sac up front ($400) don't forget a Tsunami pump ($100)

All above............$ 3,700-6,100.

With all that extra ballast, you'll need a different prop...........$500-550.

You could always check with your dealer to see about trading yours for a nice used X-30 or X-15. Might be easier in the long run. Good luck!

good plan here!!! If you like your boat i would go this route unless you got big money to upgrade. It always seems like you get shafted on a trade!!! just MHO

Depending where you are in the midwest, you might consider going in to Chicago MasterCraft. They would be more than willing to help you with either accessories or possibly a trade in.

Erk, put than gentleman in a X-230, but I think a X-30 would fit his needs better!:D
