They are all similar in many ways but the main difference is that the M & X are the hybrid motorboat/sailboat models that can do 20 knots with a 50 HP engine on the transom. The other two can only handle a < 10 HP engine and the 'S' is a decent sailor in winds that are not too strong. I have sailed on the 'S' model and while it does not handle like a keel boat it can be fast and is extremely roomy down below 'tween decks - just no standing room.
I can't comment on the Hunter water ballast version(s) of the Mac as I have never been on one.
