I am a buddy of Hammers I came with him to the spring fling last yr at lake wilye and may see you again this yr. I have been a member here since then and have been looking for a boat. I found this one and can go see it this weekend. Please tell me what you think about price/hrs./yr etc... I need to make a decision pretty quick I think.

thanks.

Selling my 1991 Mastercraft Pro Star 19', 351cu Indmar (Ford) 240hp, 180 original hours, professionally maintained, Mastercraft trailer included, new battery and speakers, $9,750 until April and then price will be $10,750.

That's a good deal for sure. 180hrs is pretty much unheard of. Pretty much same boat I have, just different color. You won't be unhappy.

That sounds like a great deal to me. I can only remember seeing 1 '91 PS190 for less than that in the last 45 months. And, I am sure that it had more hours than that. We had a 91 at one time and we loved that boat! We had the exact same hull color as that, which is a fairly rare color.

If you are serious about that boat, I would jump on that deal.

Sorry, I meant 4-5 months, but either way it looks like a great deal.

From the pics that you posted it appears that the boat is in impeccable condition. If everything checks out mechanically that would be a good buy.

Too Late......I bought that boat this morning for $9000 cash




Just kidding;) :D


That seems to be a very good deal with such low hours!!!!

How about a boat that is 5 years newer for $2500 more?? This one has new interior and fuel injection. Includes full cover and Mastercraft trailer. Let me know if you want to take a look.

That looks like a great deal if it's as described. I had a 93 PS190 and it was a great boat. Good luck and hopefully it will work out for you.

It's a reasonable price. If the hours are exact thats a low hour boat to say the least! You shouldn't get hurt on the deal if you decide to sell in a year or two, but you most likely won't make a profit.

Looks like a good deal to me. Check the upholstry under the back seat. Only wood in the boat. Water gets under the seat and cannot dry out.

Sorry Tom, just saw that... I think you posted while I was on the phone. Distance is a pretty good equalizer in this case. The boat I found sits 4 coves down from my mothers place.

Thanks

lanier, how much would replacing that wood run... just so I can ballpark my offer.

I think that price is a steal if it is in the shape they say it is. I wouldn't sweat the wood under the seat, it should be an easy enough fix. It doesn't seem like there is much negotiating with that price since he says it goes up in a month. I sold my '89 tristar last march to a buddy. The ads were already in the want-ad and I got a ton of calls in late April/ early May. So I have no doubt he will get more in a month.

Good Luck!

Guys, you have to be kidding me. He is never going to do it...(Insert minicing laugh here). ;) :D 8p

Its just a couple of wood strips on the bottom of the seat to set the staples in. That boat looks great, if I didn't have one already, I would buy at that price!!

180 hours?? First year of that coveted hull? Under $10K? Looks in excellent shape...

Looks like a screamin' deal to me!

OK so another question, what should I look besides power, smoothness of takeoff etc.... I already heard under the back seat what else?

thx

looks like a good deal to me comparable to what I paid for my 93 stars and stripes with 500 hours on it. check the rear floor panel for any sagging and where the motor cover hinges mount to the floor. Eastie and I had trouble with these on our 93 because it was honecomb material but it may not have been that in 91. consider the florida boat because it has EFI but I have been very happy with well tuned carburated boats. see if the trailer has been maintained, it may have sat outside a lot since the pics of the boat are on a lift. what is the age/condition of tires. regardless of the nit picking details, it probably is a good deal, especially with the low hours. be sure to ask him why it is so low, this is a little odd for a boat on a lift. good luck, do not let a good deal go by. also the 91-94 hull is very good for slalom and therefore, for god's sake, do not put a tower on it!

He is the 2nd owner the PO designs engines for nascar and bought the boat for his kids while they were in their late teens. They used it some, but then left home, it sat in an enclosed lift for quite a while till he bought it 4 yrs ago. Per the seller this is his first year leaving it on the lift, most winters are in a basement so I know the trailer has gotten some use.

Scott thanks for the link, good stuff. Especially checking the hours before and after the cruise...

Have it professionally checked out - then go for it! I had a 92 and nothing beats it at 28 off @ 36mph. Absolute flat sweetness!

Without a swing tounge you are going to need right at 22' to get in in the garage straight in. With a swing tonunge you should be able to get it in at right at 20'.
