    I think I bought a 2019 23 GSB. The dash looks like the 2018. All the other 2019's on boat trader have a different dash. The dealer said it was a 2019. I know in cars the VIN number can tell you the year of the make. Do hull numbers work the same? I sure did pay a lot thinking I was getting a 19. How can I know for sure?

    The last 2-digits of the Hull number should correspond with the "vintage"...

    As far as I understand it, the updated helm was added to 2019 models. I guess the possibility exists that a dealer could swap the helm...?

    My brother in law ordered his in May of 17 as a 2017 . It was built it July as one of the 1st 2018's with few of the model changes .He has no complaints ,as it is titled as as 2018 which make it worth more on a resale

    Helm could have been a running change. I’m sure some early builds had one style helm and later builds had new style.

    The last four digits on the hull are G819 so it is indeed a 19. Thanks for your responses!
