375 or 425hp

I am wondering what horse power I have in my 1990 Maristar. It does have a Chevy 454 in it. I got a bill from the insurance company last night and they think it has a 454 with 475hp. I am not aware of such an animal. Do you think this might be something to bring to their attention to save a couple of bucks or is it a wash. I would also like to do some comparison shopping for insurance and wondering If you guys have some good, solid, dependable companies. I am including an old thread Harold responded to years ago. Is there a number on the hull identification that might let me know. This boat does have a ton of power with the original prop. I hope to be talking to Eric about a new one soon.


This a response from Harold to someone back in 2006.


I have 1989 and 1990 brochures and the "Star" magazines with the MC published specifications.
In 1990 the MariStar 210 was 2' longer, 10" wider, 700 lbs. heavier, carries 15 gallons [105 lbs.+] more gas than the ProStar 190. The engine options were Ford 351W 250 hp or the Chevrolet 454 in 375hp and 425hp. Same basic factory or dealer installed options as the ProStar 190, except it came on a Sweetwater tandom axle trailer w/surge drum brakes, metal step plates/fenders, built by Sweetwater Manufacturing, 40 miles from MC, in Sweetwater, TN for MasterCraft Boat Co. to their specifications.

I would think that if you called Inmar with the motor serical number they could tell you if it is 375 or 425 HP.

My guess is 375...

I know I could call Indmar, I just figured someone here might know off the top of their head. The knowledge some folks on this site posess on these boats amazes me. I do know the 454 can produce 425hp, I just don't think 475hp stock is possible. I have faith someone will come along with the answer. Just something I was wondering over lunch. I don't have a lot of time to put into it today. Work keeps getting in the way.

Still curious if anyone has a good insurance company for boats.

Thanks,
Chris

I knew you would come threw for me. I wish I new how to tell. People always ask at the ramp, what motor I have in it. They seem surprised when they see it. Everything is big on it. You saw the starter you sold me. The insurance company said they could tell from the Hull number I gave them that it was 475hp, but I don't know about that. My insurance does seem kind of high for a 20 year old boat I paid under 6k for. I have put 4k into it, but still the premium seems high. While we are on the subject, the previous owner said the whole boat was sent back to Indmar in 2007 for the motor to be rebuilt. The guy seemed real trustworthy, but he could not find the proof, so who knows. I would like to believe him. The boat has a ton of power, no leaks and starts right up every time. My question is does Indmar even offer this type of service?

try ski safe via geico for insurance, they smoked the insurance company my dealer recommended. Ive used them on previous non-MC boats also, for the past 6 or so years. Havent made any claims, but my experience has been good.

Boat US was the best deal I could find. I know lots of people who had boats destroyed during Katrina and everyone seemed very happy with the service from them.
