Hello to Everyone. Unfortunately I am going to be selling my boat this season. Please take a moment and read if you are looking for a very clean and reliable boat that has been truely the best boat we've owned! Much of the below many will already know, but I am listing this local as well and inserted the add. Enjoy and let me know if you are interested!

__________________________________________________ _______________

FOR SALE is my 1988 Mastercraft 20th Anniversary Limited Edition Platinum ProStar 190 Competition Ski Boat number 69 of only 200 produced! This boat has been in our Family since it was purchased new! I am the second owner, my Dad was the first! It has an Indmar inboard engine (engine block is a 351 Ford V8) with Powerslot transmission (ratio 1:1). The boat is in pristine condition, the gel coat in excellent condition and shines like new. When the sun light hits the silver metal flake it illuminates in all different colors and looks phenomenal both on and off the water!

The boat is completely original (engine, tranny, upholstery, and carpet). It includes installed Perfect Pass, an upgraded Sony CD/MP3 Radio and speakers, a Sumbrella bimini top, and matching boat cover. I installed the bimini top in such a way where I did not have to drill into the gel coat. I still possess the original canvas boat cover and the speedometer removed for the Perfect Pass install. The boat has a two outlet driver/passenger heater. The boat includes all original documents when delivered back in 1988, (owner’s manual and Anniversary Owner’s plaque). Additionally, the boat includes an extra prop and a barefoot/ski boom.

The engine is just broken in with 1607 hours when I winterized at the end of this year’s season. The oil has been changed every 50 hours or less and winterized properly every year. It has only been used in freshwater and never kept in water overnight. The boat was pulled daily after use, washed, and stored in the garage. The boat performs flawless and has never left us stranded since purchased in 1988.

The boat also includes its original factory trailer with recently installed new springs and new tires (to include the extra mounted spare) in Aug 2012.
I am only selling this boat because I have upgraded to a 2012 model and really cannot justify the need to own two boats.

This is a great boat for anyone who loves skiing! A new MasterCraft ProStar 190 sells for 45 to 60K depending on options. Here is a chance to own a great competition ski boat, in excellent condition, with one of MasterCraft's most sought after hull designs for a fraction of that cost!

Please take a look at the pictures. I have others and can email them upon request.
Asking Price: $12,995

Call 270-268-3283 for further information. Serious Inquires only please.

Boat is located near Louisville, Kentucky.

Very nice. Love the trick release.
To clarify, is it the 1:1 or the 1.5:1(PowerSlot)?
Good luck with the sale.

Beautiful boat!

Jeff, I was a member of the Lake Aldred ski club in PA back in the late 80's and one of the members had purchased a new platinum prostar in '88.........and I believe it was #69. Your parents maybe??? Small world.

Odd to see a 3 blade on a Powerslot. What size prop is it? Beautiful boat though.

Probably a 14x18. Three blades were standard issue even into the mid 90s. 1998 was the first year a 4 blade was standard on the 1:1. Not sure if the Powerslot got it before then.

Yes, you can tell it's an excellent boat and it will make a new owner a great boat to enjoy years from now. Congratulations on keeping it in such great shape, and I wouldn't budge on the price either.

According to things I've been reading and hearing ski boats returning to three blade is the trend. There weren't a lot of four blades around in 88.

Jeff, nice to see you have been taking care of that Platinum...nice job!
I hope your folks are doing well, do they still ski @ Aldred? I have not been there in many years, I'll have to get back out there sometime with my '93 Limited.
Did Frank get another Mastercraft?

Jeff@35off
01-09-2013, 08:36 PM

Dave - They still do. Frank didn't get a Mastercraft, he's had two different boats since and is footing behind a 23 lsv now. The wife and I took the platnium back to "home" waters @ Aldred this past Summer and really enjoyed our time there....lots of great memories came rushing back!

Depends a bit on the transmission. 1:1, 3 blades work well and spin up more quickly. Gear reduction, sometimes 4 blades work better for holding power and throwing a nice wake. Really a case by case thing.

(engine block is a 351 Ford V8) with Powerslot transmission (ratio 1:1). ????
Looking at the photos it is tough to tell which tranny was in there. in 1988 MC used all
POWERSLOT IDs on the boat tags by the throttle. I can' t really tell
But there is a little confusion on the original listing

PS BEAUTIFUL BOAT!!

Looking at the picture of the prop, there is a crapton (that's a technical term) of pitch on that thing. I'm putting my money on 1:52:1 14x18.

Hello Everyone, my boat is back on the market. The tenative buyer had to back out of the sale due to an unexpected family situation. I am relisting and am lowering the price to $11,500 since the season is upon us and would really like to find a new home for her, hoping someone can enjoy! Thanks. Jeff
