View Full Version : What is it worth?

I've been trying to convince my dad to get an X-Star for so long and I think I'm finally getting somewhere. We currently have a 1996 Prostar 205 with around 500 hours. It is incredibly clean for a '96. It is Navy blue with a red and a grey stripe, Ill get pictures this weekend. How much do yall think we could get for it? I've check boattrader and similar sites and can't find one comparable to ours.

Assuming it is clean and in good working order, I'd guess between 13-17K depending on if you have features like a tower, PerfectPass, stereo, and where it is located. PS 205s are pretty desirable boats and I'm sure you won't have much trouble moving it. Good luck.

we don't have a tower or perfect pass. We do have a good stereo, bimini top, and a tendam axle trailer which not many have from what I've seen. We keep it at pickwick which is at the corner of MS, TN, and Al. Always covered and wiped down and still running very strong.

a suggestion, type the following into google, exactly as I have it below, no quotes.
you should get results from across the country with several examples of MC 205 boats for sale, and the asking price. good luck.

^Just fyi I clicked on that link and about busted my checkbook out of my pants at the 99 205v for 13k in atlanta until I saw the engine was blown........then proceeded to do the exact same thing for the listing in greenville which turned out to be the same boat. :(
