All the BAREFOOT 190 was,,a closed bow tristar (sport) with a 454.
If it has a 454 then you are golden!!!

Sure looks like it

I own one. It's a great boat. I love it. Big block with powerslot gives a pretty awesome pull with a great recreational wake.

Price seems a little steep, but it is clean and has a new engine...

Back in the day Steve Merritt was the sponsored Barefoot Skier for MasterCraft

My thoughts exactly, I am not really in the market for a new boat, but came accross it and thought I'd share.

It does seem a little steep for a 89 but it's obviously a pretty rare model.

Nice boat - looks well kept. Ouch! I'm not sure if he is going to get that out of an 89 though.

After seeing JerseyDave's '93 LE boat I will work with Jim at BAWS do the pickin' for my next boat (whenever that may be). That thing is THE nicest pure ski boat I have ever seen.

Boat is priced double what it is worth in most US markets. Not sure what the market is up there.

Great illustration of how cramped the tristar is. Not meant as a knock, just an observation. I had one.

Old mastercrafts are pricey up here and hard to find. That being said I paid $5000 for my open bow Tristar. But it was all Original but still very clean.

They are cramped even with the open bow.
