I've looked for some sort of key to figure all that out but I haven't found the "key" to deciphering MC naming yet.
its really not that complicated. there is a great thread in the FAQ that covers the 205 hull. basically (iirc) after 1997 the 205 hull really didn't see much change until it was retired recently. it was a direct drive "DD" until the v-drive "V" was introduced in 2000 and then they were available as both "v" and "dd". so a 205 vs a 205v just means one is a direct drive and the other is a v drive. the 205 was the biggest in the prostar line and the other line was the maristar line. i'm not too familiar with the pre 98 models so maybe someone can chime in with their history. in 98 they introduced the 200vrs and the 225vrs. in 99 the designation changed to 210vrs and 230vrs (same hull). these were v drives and in 01 they served as the hulls for the X10 and X30. the maristar was marketed as the sophisticated run about that skis/boards and the X was the wild boat with graphics/tower/ballast standard. there were some interior differences such as wood trim on the maristar and chromeish trim on the X. they are identical hulls and the addition of a new dimensions tower to a maristar makes it a twin to the similar X model. those hulls ran to 05. in 06, there was no X10 and the X30 was a completely new hull. in 03 the new pickle fork Xstar was released and the 205v became the X2 which later became the X1 until it was recently retired. the mid to early 00's are the v-drive hulls in the range around 30K. obviously the newer boats will have the higher prices. 01 saw a more modern vinyl pattern with a 3 piece sun deck. 03 saw the introduction of the MCX which replaced the LTR. The LTR was the replacement for the LT1 in the late 90s.

Hope this helps.
