Sunsetter serial number

Recommended Posts

hi everyone I'm looking at a 2002 Sunsetter (logo on the side of the hull)  but did a check on the serial # and the dealer is telling me its a sunscape vsl #, anyone have any idea of what it is? we want to use the boat mainly for skiing so i would like to make sure we are buying the sv23 diamond hull if im correct with my numbers. Also with a used boat i want to be sure there is no funny business going on. Thanks

The Sunsetter is an inboard, direct drive (engine in the middle), 3 tracking fins. V23 Diamond.  Open bow seating. 

The Sunscape (likely LSV), is an inboard, V-drive (engine in the rear), 2 tracking fins.  V23 Diamond. Open bow seating.

thanks Soon, is it possible the factory messed up on the number plate as it has the sunsetter logo and it is a direct drive, anyone hear of this , like i said i just want to be sure something goofy isn't goin gone with this boat before i buy it.

I would put much more credence in the hull i.d. # than any graphics, but if it is a direct drive it is not a LSV. You might consider contacting the Malibu factory directly to decipher the i.d. #. Don't mention the dealer conversation.
