MariStar 210 Information

I am new to this site and am posting to get some help. I was a past owner of a 1982 Stars and Stripes, back in the day, and gave it up for a deck boat due to a growing family. I have sold the deck boat and I'm ready to get back into a MasterCraft. First, I was wondering if there were any MariStar 210 owners in the Bowling Green, KY area? I am leaning toward this boat, but would be interested in talking with a current owner. Second, how is the ski wake on the MariStar 210? Any and all comments or advise are welcome.

I have the 230 and love it. Lots of room for everyone to go and enough power to pull up everyone. Well we did have 4 in the boat and pulled up 9 at once. It does like the fuel but fair trade I think. The wake is not great to ski, but kids are ok with it now after a season with it. The kids really like to wakeboard and the wake is great for that. Next year we will update you on wake surfing. Hope it works out for you and I think you will enjoy it

Thanks for the message back. I really want to stay at the 210 model in hopes of getting a better ski wake? My girls have started wakeboarding, but not die hard, yet. I have talked to a guy about a 210 in Alabama. Maybe it will work out?
Thanks again,
Stephen

we have a 2000 210 Maristar. what kind of wake? i imagine it depends upon what you are used to sking. Limited research will reveal it is not a Prostar wake. Never skied behind a SS so i can't comment. I ski around 36mph and I have no issues with it. I am a recreational skier so it works for us, more the boat fits our needs (space, storage etc). If you are a competive skier i beleive you would want something different. if you are not, you should be fine.

What year Maristar are you looking for? There are changes over the years.

My '98 is a sweet boat, but it doesn't have an S&S ski wake - get over 32, and it's pretty good, but the 28 that I like to ski at is a bit of a bump. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible, but it's definitely bigger than a hardcore ski boat.

On Sunday, we had four 8/9 year olds, and 4 adults in the boat, and didn't feel squished. Keep the toys put away, and it works out great. All the kids had fun on the kneeboard and tube, the adults on slalom and air chair.

If you make it out to Phoenix, let me know and we'll hit the water.
