MariStar line gone for '13
 
Decided to start looking around for a new boat. Went to some local dealers' sites. No MariStar models for 2013. Is that model dropped?

Web sight only shows X and Prostar models now. I believe the V series I bet the V series will re-emerge as an lesser equipped boat like Axis. This is just my opinion based on the quote from the new CEO. It's hard to find a new Prostar these days at most dealers. IMO

Mariatar has been gone for a long time. If your talking about the V series, yea, that's gone

A lower priced stripped down V-drive would be a sensible idea IMHO.
MC should try to appeal to the Axis/Moomba crowd and that price point to try and get some of that business. Not everyone has $80-90K to spend on a wake boat.

As Willy said the Maristar name has been gone for a few years. I think that MC has been trying to come up with a way to bring back some lower priced boats without killing the used market for a while. Hopefully they have figured out how.

^I have no faith lol.

I think part of the problem is they don't want to make a product that takes away from the glory of the beautiful top of the line Mastercraft name. I keep thinking about what they could remove etc to lower the costs but I'm blanking a bit. I mean obviously ditch the digital gauges along with touchscreens but I doubt they want to mess with diff upholstery etc. I mean we are talking a few grand which to be honest is pissing in the wind in the big scheme of things.

That's a bummer. I'm done with wakeboarding. So I don't need an X series. But I'd like to have a tower for pulling the kids. And the wife wants a bigger boat than our X-30. I haven't looked at a brochure since '06. Didn;t even know the line had been dropped :(

Sounds like with those type of requirements you would be fairly limited in your selection either way. Why not a year or two old X45, outside of that I would assume you would be looking at a bay liner or Cobalt of some sort.

Limited with MasterCraft unfortunately.

Started off with a ProStar in '96 when I ski'd quite a bit. Switched to the X30 when wakeboarding was my hobby. Now I'm content to pull around the kids and just chill-ax on the lake. I'd like to do it in style.

This is not how I wanted to start 2013......

Why not just buy an X-series?. Little difference between that and the old maristar series anyway since you want a tower.
