2005 Mastercraft Maristar 245 SS

I put money down on this boat and did it sight unseen. It was being sold on consignment so I was unable to talk to the current owner. The dealer selling it is Singleton Marine. He said the boat was rack kept on Lake Lanier George and the owner didn't have a trailer. If anyone has any background on this boat it would be greatly appreciated. Or if anyone know of an X45 or Maristar 245 trailer for sale please let me know? Or what can I expect to pay for one if I have to buy a new one?Name:  MasterCraft.jpg

Seems like a good deal to me. The only thing with it being the MariStar is that it won't have plumbed in ballast, so you'd have to do that if you want ballast the easy way. We just use fat sacs and tsunami pumps to do it by hand in ours, so it's not a huge deal. Looks like it's got just about everything else you could want though. As a SS has it been in salt water? Does the dealer not have any trailer options?


I will say that's an interesting swim platform foam design hahaha

Others can give more accurate price but I'd say that you're looking at around 6-7k for a new trailer for that boat.

The dealer has a "new" 2016 trailer. It is actually the trailer in the pics. He said $4500 for the trailer. I know the trailer wasn't specifically built for the boat, so I thought I would try to find a trailer built for that boat. I've had some friends who bought trailers that weren't specifically made for their boat and they had some issues. As far as the ballast he (the dealer selling the boat) said it had a triple auto ballast system. I know the Maristar's didn't come that why normally, but could that have been an option and something that was added from the factory?
