Just wondering if anyone has documented the orig retail price of mastercraft boats anywhere...I searched the forum and couldnt find anything. Googled it and didnt find anything. I have all the orig documentation (except when new sales price) but would like to know orig price (ideally orig sticker!)

1978 MC S&S Green over Green.
Thx

...Would be interesting...

98 PS 205 LT1. I was told sticker on it, in 98, was 26 or 27k?

Not a bad idea...I'd be glad to post msrp and final purchase price on my 2 purchases...but I don't know if it would violate forum rules..

I think it was around 11k on a 1978.

I'm not sure how accurate it is, but NADA gives the MSRP. Enter your year and model.

Interesting. My '77 comes out at $8995 and I think thats pretty close to what I have heard. I have some info saved on my other computer I will have to check in the morning. I think I may have something regarding the original price.

The asking price (sticker) for my 06 X1 that was moderately equipped was in the general neighborhood of 44,000. It has been well documented on multiple threads that MSRP/sticker price does not correlate well with the orginal price paid by the buyer. JohnE, surely it can't be against the rules to share the price the dealer gave you from the invoice. If it is delete this with no hard feelings.

Thanks!!!! It appears thats what mine was too... Base Price: $8,995

Retail seems really low (2200 - 2400) but I guess it makes sense when you average the prices and conditions.... of the really abused boats.

I rarely saw a S&S for less than 5k in good usable condition. I think mine is in better than average condition and I paid less than orig sticker but more than retail. Comparible boats in worse condition with orig engines were 5-7k

It would be interesting if I could keep it for awhile, improve it, and sell it for the orig sticker! (no intentions anytime soon)

A full restoration would have a good shot at hitting that $8995 figure, but I think it would cost you more in parts to get there. Not that it wouldn't be fun trying.

The original invoice price on my '79 was $9500 including trailer and cover

Thanks. Makes that $8995 figure seem pretty accurate.

According to the inflation calculator...

http://www.westegg.com/inflation/

"What cost $12000 in 1982 would cost $26327.54 in 2009"

Would be nice to a new one for around 26K today... but that is now impossible, it appears.

If they made that same boat today i bet they could still turn a profit at 26k. Bit then who would want a boat built to 30 yo specs and standards??

Mine according to the sheet was just over 18K. Glad I paid 4K for it!

Wow, so many options in 82 that were included in the base price in 79. Mine listed for $9500and that is what the bank paid. Power Slot was not available then. Interesting list and for the time expensive upgrades and options. I guess nothing has changed. :D

I have to agree. Who would buy a new boat that has a carburetor?

I didn't mean 'same exact' boat...

Back in 82 you could get a S&S for ~$26K - in today's dollars.

Can you buy a brand new X-1, X-2, today, for $26K?

I am guessing no. Now the entry price, for new... is 45, 50K? vs. what has historically been ~1/2 as much...

New boat prices appear to have grown considerably faster than inflation.

But today's X-1 or X-2 has so much more in it than a 30 year old stars and stripes. Can't even compare or make an analogy. I think I can buy a brand new Svafra for $26K though.

Exactly, MC could make $26k ski boats all day long, but that's not where their market is at.

There is not such a thing or I just cant find it.

I think it is more curiosity than have to have info.

I paid $15457.00 for my 87 slot with cover and trailer. No stereo or other options that I can think of right now. I had a 82 slot that I bought in 84 for $10700.00 with 200 hours.
I am one of those people that would pay for for 25 year old technology when it comes to the 19' skier. To the best ski boat ever made for the money. And yes I'll take the carb too. Not that I would mind fuel injection but every I just drive my 83 slot in the course, put gas in it, grease the rudder about the middle of the summer and then change the oil in the fall. Eventually it's gonna cost a little money but, by reading many many posts on this site fairly new boats need way more maintenance and repairs than mine ever has. I have almost 1400 hours. So far a fuel pump 3 years ago and the raw water pump a few years ago to. Since 1993 I have changed the impeller twice, yes you read that correctly and one of those times was when the raw water was replaced because of the bearing.

Word!

My 83 slot has 2700+ hours and is still running like a raped ape. Just wait til I wake up that old 351 with a 408 stroker, but she wont give up the ghost so why bother!

I don't know if mine will past that many hours. You see in about 1996 I replaced the belts, put everything back to normal, boat ran fine. The next time I took it out, were taking turns skiing when it's my turn. I jump in the water and start skiing. Midway through my 3rd pass ( I was ready to drop soon anyway) my buddy shuts the boat down. As I am swimming back to boat he lifts motor cover up and steam is pouring out of engine compartment. I get in boat, both 3" hoses off of manifolds have holes melted in them from the overheating. We then look at the water pump and the belt is off. We loosen bolt and put the belt back on and start motor to get water in it. We idle back to house and investigate. The engine looked like I
varnished it, the silver now looked a very light bronze. Looking at one of the pulleys looked like it wasn't aligned perfect and maybe that's the reason the belt rolled off. After replacing 3" hoses I ran the boat. It had very little oil pressure. I then replaced the oil sending unit and had oil pressure again. Every year since that mishap I think this could be the year for an engine tear down ( I didn't think it was ev

According an article I have about the 1991 MasterCraft Prostar 190 w/ Power Slot MSRP was $24,269. The Power Slot transmission was a $1,050 option.
That is not saying that this is the price that you would find at a dealer. That is just want MC wanted
