View Full Version : WTB 1986-1991? TriStar 220 open bow

Looking for a good used Tri Star 220, and some help understanding the options they came with. Found one locally that looks nice, has a 454, low hours, thought I would post to see if anyone here is selling a similar boat, w/end of season pricing?

For your reference, I bought my '89 190 with a 351W in it, June this year for $8K. It had about 520 hours, above average condition except all original interior. Oh yeah, open bow, some 190's are closed bow.

Thanks, did you replace skins? I'll need a few seats worked on if i get the boat im looking at, might price out doing all seats.

Any chance you know if PCM painted over the engine & trans after assembly? This low hour 1986 boat has a 454&velvet drive, only one owner said they did not remove or paint anything but its been painted, assuming at factory. My 1980 SS PCM 351w is not painted. Maybe they started after 1980?

I didn't replace any skins yet. I was going to let it ride for a couple seasons and then see how much I wanted to do. It is usable still.
I have an Indmar engine. No painting of the transmission there. A 1:1 too.

I don't think they made the tristar in '86.

I purchased a boat, moving discussion to appropriate topics
