Hi everyone,

Now that I am done with school I am looking to get myself back on the water before Spring hits. I'm open to most Mastercrafts, as long as they are 1984 or newer. Preferably, I'd love to get something from the low to mid 1990's if possible. I'm pretty positive that this price range I will be limited to Prostar 190 models.

If anyone knows of any MC's out there in this price range, or comes across any, I'd really appreciate a heads up. I love the early 2000s 197's but I just don't think it's smart to undertake any further debt (damn student loans!!)

Many thanks in advance!

Where are you located and how far are you willing to travel? I am in the market as well and search most every day, but not all are within a comfortable drive. Mostly, I just haven't found a low enough hour pristine example. I realize a person can always ship it. P.M. me and I will what I have seen if it is a match for you. What are you going to use it for?

I'm in Michigan. I'm willing to travel within reason if need be. I dont want to drive to CA or FL for a boat though. I plan on mainly using for wakeboarding, surfing, some skiing, and definitely a lot of just hanging out. I don't know how PM on here works?! I'd love to take a look at anything you have come across.

Do a search with "all of craigslist" quite a bit comes up and you can narrow it down to your price range/location

I'll definitely do that. I've been searching around a lot, but I figured I'd post up on TT to see if any members knew/heard of anything.

I know you don't want to travel to FL from Michigan but coming from Jim and BAWS, I would think it is safe to say this boat is in fantastic condition. A lot of folks on this forum have dealt with Jim and have nothing but good things to say about his dealership.

Plus that is one sweet looking prostar!

I drove 10 hours to get my X-star, and 20 hours to get my '93 Limited.
Sometimes it's well worth the drive for the right boat.

Michigan to FLA sounds like a good excuse for a vacation to me!

BTW, Jim@BAWS is awesome to do business with....the man goes out of his way for his customers.

*Note, I think that black 1990 Limited edition is sold however.

Starting to wonder if I am realistic with my search. I went and looked at a Natique tonight. Drove 50 miles (thank goodness it wasn't further) to look at his rusted p.o.s. Why is it that some people think if they get you there you will be accepting of things you tell them you "are not" looking for?
Steering issue, rust in the engine area and molded carpet and he wanted as much as 14K for his high hour/high use boat. Not even close tonight.

Nice deal here for you, not far from your area. I'm also looking every hour it seems, but only want a PS 190, or the F150 would be headed to MI.

If it's clean the upgrades make this a very good deal.

Get pictures of bilgs, cutlass, under manifolds, many picks of motor.

pop open the thermostat housing may need replacement. Check alternator output....

Looks good tho'

Hey everyone. I actually purchased a 1995 Pro Star 190 with the LT-1 and Powerslot last week. Once I get the boat back from the fiberglass shop, I will post some pictures. Thank you all for your help along the way.

I don't know if you are still looking, but I'm in Indiana and I have a 1993 Prostar 190 with 402 hours. I haven't been able to list it on the Market page because I'm still a newbie.
