I believe that the Maristar's don't come stock with towers and factory ballast-if wanted they would be added as an option. The picture of the dash shows that this boat has the billet trim, billet steering wheel and it obviously has a tower. So if it has the factory ballast it pretty much would be optioned similar to an X-45. I can't think of any other options the X-45 would have over this boat, but maybe some one else will chime in if I'm forgetting anything.
