The Starspin owned by Cev Malanx and his partner Regec Sloom features stronger hull and shields, 2 concussion missile launchers and a more powerful laser cannon. TFOP states "From the highly able YT-1210 to the cheaper (but easily-modified) YT-1300..." = YT-1210 more expensive than YT-1300; most likely when first introduced.

 

    The YT-1210 Light Freighter was a highly able freighter that was the immediate predecessor to the YT-1300. While this design is adequate, it lacked several amenities and the YT-1300's speed. Once sales of the YT-1300 took off, the YT-1210 eventually ceased production. Another possible reason for the YT-1210's short production run could be that its initial price tag was more expensive than that of the YT-1300. Like the YT-1300, this craft can be found virtually all over the Galaxy. Users of this craft include civilians and smugglers. The captain's quarters is tiny, however it did include a few luxuries such as a small refresher station and a datapad desk. Meanwhile, the rest of the crew is forced to share a common refresher station. When flushing the refresher station, disinfectant washes the contents down into a holding tank. By procedure(?) the waste holding tank is dumped just before making the jump into hyperspace.
