I am looking to purchase a salt water series boat with little use that has been dry stored and maintained regualarly by the local MC dealer. I will be useing the boat in fresh water but I wanted to know what my concerns should be. What is the difference between the SS engine system. Does it have a closed cooling system or just attachments where it can be flushed easily after each use. Thanks for any help I can get.

From my understanding the SS line has closed cooling, zincs, and more stainless steel components.

What year is it? Depending, it could possibly have a Crusader engine...

The truth is that a SS boat is built more stout than it's fresh water companion.

It is a 2007. Is the Crusader engine a good or bad one? I do know it is a 400hp engine.

Crusaders are great engines. They have been used in the salt boat market for a LONG time. Since MC used them for such a short period, I am unsure how skilled the MC service departments are with them, if anything were to go wrong. Even so, I would not look away from a boat because it had that engine.

Had a crusader in my 05 maristar 245 ss with 5 years of trouble free boating.
