Just sold our '89 ProStar. I'm a little sad, but I'm now talking with someone who has a 2000 Sportstar 19 for sale. It's in very nice shape, has about 350 hours on it, has a tower with lights and board racks, is sitting on a brand new MC trailer, and is overall very clean.

We've negotiated some and before I say what price he is offering it at, I'm curious where fellow Team Members would value it.

I realize that's a pretty open ended request and I've also already checked NADA but, like I said, I'm just curious.

Thanks!

Probably $15-19k depending on how it's equipped and if it's a universal or custom tower. I haven't looked at NADA or what others are going for. That's just an "Off the cuff" price based on the age and size. If it had perfect pass, an OEM or New Dimension tower, and in mint condition maybe $20k if the 19' form factor really appeals to you. If no PP, a universal tower and good condition maybe $13-14k.

Low hours, new trailer and the shape and condition of the boat will be the selling point especially if the owner has service records. Is it an open bow? Does the boat come with any accessories (ballast, barefoot boom)? Perfect pass would be a nice thing to help hold it's value. Fill us in and get pictures posted.
I have a 1999 sportstar closed bow in great condition and love it.

I'd guess a Sportstar will hold its value about as well as anything out there simply because it started off as an entry level priced boat. It's got a fantastic hull and, by 2000, had at least a TBI 350 in it. I'd guess, in great shape with 350 hours, about $14,500.

I sold a 99 low hour closed bow SportStar with MC Trailer, PP, heater & shower in the fall of '10 for $13.5k. It did have a bit of gel coat damage on the port bow.

Good luck in your boat search.

1999 started the 350 TBI.

Thanks for all the input. I don't feel comfortable posting pictures until it's "officially" ours.

Quick question...were all the SportStars by the 2000 model year EFI or were there still carbed engines out there?

MasterCraft went to ALL FUEL injection in 1993..What looks like a CARB is actually a
THROTTLE BODY Fuel injection system

I almost (scarily) sold my 1999 sportstar open bow last summer for 14K on craigslist. Interestingly, when i was about to sell it with a guy on the way with a cashiers check the flush adaptor blew itself to bits so there was no way to run it or have him test drive it. I used the the next weekend and fell back in love with it and have no intention of selling it. That being said, I had a ton of interest at 14k, including people from as far as a couple hundred miles south. Boat has perfect pass wakeboard pro, XTP (oem) zeroflex tower, 350tbi, galvanized trailer and is in good condition.

I was stupidly low on my price in hindsight, but based it off of what i bought it for 11 years ago, now realizing that I could probably sell it for what i bought it for, 11 years on...i got a hell of a deal.

Yes, stock was the 260 hp 5.0 in 1998, but the LT1 was an option in 98 and 99. The former president of our ski club had a 98 SS with an LT1. Monster of a great ski boat.

94, but who's counting. LT1 was an option in 93. I know you knew that. But I have to jump on the typos when I can. 8p

The results:

I somehow got it in my head that the boat was a 2000, my mistake, it is actually a '98...no big deal. It's sitting on an '03 trailer.

We bought it for a little over $11k. I think we got a great deal.

Congrats! Which engine? 5.0 TBI or LT1?

The trailer + boat averages out to about a 2000
