A test drive was given last Tuesday and as he drove the boat he look over at me and said this is what I have been looking for:)
Delivered the boat to his sister in laws house Wed and received the check.

Another Mastercraft owner who I know will be extremely happy with his new old boat. After two years of use, I sold the boat for the same as I purchase price two years ago. Just shows how well these boats hold their values.

I thought used boat prices were falling like the stock market. All I have read are how no one is getting any interest.

Sounds like you bucked the trend.

Glad you got it sold, didn't you tear up a fender last year? did you fix it?

I did get the fender repaired. $125 from a guy who works on Corvettes. I had two spots on the sundeck fixed as well. That cost me $90.
It worked out to cost me $200 to run the boat for two years. I did have the repairs but I felt that I would have fixed them no matter what.
I think there are only about 6 Mastercraft in that price and year models out there being advertised so that may have helped me.
