My 98 Maristar 225vrs project

Hi guys, today my buddy Hammer helped me find and purchase a 98 225VRS. Thanks Hammer, U R D Man.

So here are some pictures of my new project. Havent had it in the water yet but got it for a good price. the interior is in awesome shape, it does run but was only cranked while in dry dock with a hose. It needs a good buffing and there is a bad gel patch on the back corner where a pier got a hold of it, but overall for the price I paid its in great shape. There will be lots of questions of course! I am excited about getting more space and more wake for my kids to play on.


if we can get things corrected and everything checks out, there is a tower in its future!

Nice project there! My first MC was a '98 225VRS...great all-around boat! Sounds like with a little TLC, you're going to have a great boat there. Corvette engine is a nice upgrade too!

Looks like a great project. Seems like you need to have an oxidation removal party. Bring your own polisher and Gonzo brings the Natty's

Sweet boat.

A nice polish job, remove the maristar decals and maybe some domed "MasterCraft" decals on the sides and that is gonna look nice!

Enjoy your new project!

This is exactly what I was pushing. Not sure how much of the cool-aid he is taking in. We shall see.

Oh I think all the stickers are coming off, definitely the maristar badging.

Get her buffed out, throw on the domed numbers and a set of the current MC wheels and people will be thinking you have a brand new boat.

Where in the world could he possibly get such a wheel? They have to be hard to come by.
