Non-MB Question ... Difference between Marine and Automotive Batteries?

I am replacing the battery in my 200 HP inboard/outboard boat ... if there is a big difference in price between "Marine" and "Auto" applications, what does this represent in content?

Is there a real difference for a given casing size? My is a size 24 (pretty standard auto size) and has 400 cold crank amp rating ... what is real issue if I simply replace it with an auto battery of the same output?
