View Full Version : X2 vs Maristar 200

Hi all,

I'm in the market for lightly used X2 - 2006 or 2007. I've boarded and surfed behind one in the past and was very impressed and I've heard it isn't bad for a slalom run either. Another reason I like it...fits in the garage.

My questions is with regards to the difference between an X2 and Maristar 200 maxed with options. Is there a difference with regard to boat construction? I've heard claims that they are identical except the color scheme/decals. Can anyone confirm?

They look identical but the NADA guides show the base price of X2 about $3K more than 200. Is that just for difference in color scheme?

Tower with racks is not standard equipment on the Maristar 200, that could explain the NADA difference of 3K. Those items are a part of a standard X2.

They are the same boat. The only difference is what options are standard (tower, ballast, etc.).

And resale can be better for an X series. AS you pointed out in the nada guide. Even though it shouldn't matter.

Also a Maristar optioned the exact same as an X2 will have a higher msrp for some silly reason.

I have a Maristar 200 optioned out as an X2. The only difference is the "X" on seats. Mine has "200" on them.
