I know the thread of the construction you speak. In that thread it did show the 3 piece construction Malibu used/uses on some models. Keep in mind tho that those build process pics are even older that 2011. If we are talking hull quality and mold yes they are almost identical. Key word HULL. It's what happens after the mold that gives the different characteristics. Here's the link

The non molded deck construction had some benefits first and foremost being sound dampening. Malibu has swapped and used a combo molded deck. It is contemplating going full mold for 2014 as mentioned

2000 Mastercraft Xstar
2004,2005 Ski Centurion Avalanche C4
2003, Ski Centurion Cyclone
99,2000,2001, 2002 Ski Centurion Elite V/Hurricane/lightning
88 2001 Nautique
