Anybody know the model years that this hull remained the same or can you tell me if this hull became an X model? A MC owner needs a trailer and I'm not sure if I have the fit. Thanks in advance!

I believe the 230 was the same from 2000-2005, and it was available as the X30 from 01-05. The hull was changed in 2006.

I'm 99% sure it was the same hull 1998-2005. Was also the X30 up until 2005.

I'm almost certain that in 1998 the only option was the 225, and in 1999 the 230VRS came out. That was a step-change in hull design, engine options, etc. I thought it was the same hull through 2003, but that I am not certain of.

I have a '98 225...that was the first year of the new hull design, got renamed in '99 to the 230...same boat.

So the big change was from 97 to 98 then? That makes sense as the 97's definitely look a lot different.

Yes, 97 to 98 was when the integrated swim platform went away, and we got Teak bolt-on platforms. Major revisions of the Maristar between those two model years.
