Time has come to re-post my boat and sell it before the summer begins.


NEW PRICE: $12,500 Will take cash, not a trade. Open to all cash offers, except low ballers, those will be ignored.

This boat has around 850 hours, had it for two seasons, not a single problem.
I am selling because I need money for school.

Compression tested 4/24/13
Results:
1-145
2-145
3-150
4-148
5-145
6-145
7-150
8-150

I think this boat is a good value even though you can find lower cost boats of similar vintage for a few reasons.

-Condition. Fiberglass is in great shape with no stress cracking. Upholstery is orginal & in good condidtion with no dry rot or cracking.

-No wood in the boat, outside of the swim platform

-Battery replaced last season

-The transmission has been rebuilt at the regular interval, which runs north of $2000 if done by a dealer.

-The color scheme does not give away the age. No hot pink or neon green. A combination of white, black, grey, and teal that still looks good. The teal is limited to a pinstripe on the hull and a few accent splashes on the upholstery.

-Carburetor upgraded, always starts first turn.

-The boat design itself itself does not look dated. (Think square corners on windscreen & interior.) Park this boat to a current X1, the hull & windscreen will look very similar. The running surface is actually the same, and has been in MasterCraft's lineup for a long time. (Prostar 205 became the 205V with the addition of deeper sides > X-Star > X-2 > X-1.)

-Equipment. The tower & racks are a necessity for wakeboarding.


Thanks for your interest, Please feel free to message me.

1. Remove bilge plug
2. Change Oil
(a) Drain directly into the waste jugs (1.5 gallons). 7/16” wrench for oil line. Oil can be pumped out via suction or allowed to drain by putting the hose through the hull drain plug to a container on the ground.
3. Fog motor while running slowly. Then down spark plugs. Need plug socket, ratchet, extension, extension knuckle, & wrench to turn plug socket itself. The rear plugs will come out but are difficult. Check gap. If necessary use Motorcraft AWSF22C spark plugs.
4. Drain engine water
(a) Remove exhaust manifold plugs at rear of manifold (1/side)
(b) Remove engine block plugs (1/side)
(c) Disconnect the hoses from front of exhaust manifolds
(d) Remove the large diameter hose from engine block water pump to thermostat
(e) Remove water intake hose from raw water pump
(f) Disconnect water hoses from rear of transmission cooler. Check for trash, reconnect.
5. Remove Impeller
(a) Put Vaseline between several fins
i. Turn over engine several times
(b) Pull out impeller with channel lock pliers
(c) Store in zip-lock w/ Vaseline, place on seat. Replace impeller every other season, or if nicked during removal, or if the blades have taken a set.
Plug exhaust
1. Grease Rudder
2. Run bilge dry & wipe underneath motor
3. Record hours
4. Disconnect battery cables. Remove and store battery in a cool & dry place.
5. Check the wheel bearing grease. (Overgreasing will cause grease to splatter onto the rims while trailering, but won't hurt anything.)
6. Lubricate exposed cable ends with grease (3 on rudder & 2 on engine). Engine cover & floor panel behind engine must be removed to check rudder. Four screws secure the floor panel.
7. Check blower hose for cracks, leaks
8. Change transmission oil if necessary. Dextron II ATF (2 Quart Capacity)
9. Check propeller shaft alignment. The largest feeler gauge that should be able to be inserted in the coupling is 0.003” (0.08mm). If larger can be inserted, engine placement must be adjusted. Should be able to slide propshaft into transmission output flange without cheating the shaft. If it hits the motor position needs to be adjusted. Then slide shaft to mate with flange, should not be able to see daylight anywhere around it.
10. Prop open engine cover ~2”, prop open trunk, crack open cushions for air circulation to prevent musty odors.
11. Lower tower, remove forward legs to allow tower to fit under cover.
12. Store forward tower legs & swim platform under cover.

SPRING START UP

1. Unplug exhaust
2. Reinstall the impeller, water pump to thermostat housing hose, block plugs, tighten water line connections. Replace impeller every other year.
3. Add Sea-Foam to the fuel
4. Install bilge plug and battery.
5. Check engine oil level
6. Check transmission oil level.
7. Remove spark plugs in spring after running through first tank of gas, clean, check gap
8. Change engine oil if not already done

OTHER NOTES

We normally launch by backing the boat in far enough so the water pickup is submerged. This is a good time to unhook the latch & strap. Then start the boat & launch by backing in until the boat floats off of the trailer.

The bimini top goes on with the collapsible spanner forward. We adjust the front straps to go through the grab rails & clip on the plastic length adjusters. The rear straps are set to allow blue bungee cords doubled over to reach the middle of the grab rail. This keeps a little tension on the bimini top to keep things from flapping around. When removing the top, keep an eye on the plastic inserts inside the mounting brackets on the windshield.

ProStars are designed to run with a pull to the right. This is normal. If the steering cable becomes excessively worn, then this tendency can be exaggerated. Our dealer inspected the steering last spring, and said it looked good. He also stated that the boat handled properly. You will note that you need to keep a hand on the wheel while under power. This tendency is part of the inboard setup for slalom skiing, making it easier to run a straight line through the course as you don't have to turn over center which can be less precise. The boat will hold its throttle setting, as it should. If you find it creeping back, then the linkage needs to be adjusted. We had this done when we bought the boat in 06, and have not had a problem since.

When backing the boat, it will turn to the right. It will back fairly straight by full left rudder & bumping in/out of reverse. You can pivot the boat counterclockwise in one location by alternating forward left rudder/reverse right rudder. You can also use the tendency to back to the right when pulling up to the dock. Come in at a shallow angle, approaching the dock on your right. Pop it into reverse to stop the boat & rotate the back into the dock. These are handling characteristics common to direct drive & v-drive boats.

The boat has a neutral interlock on the transmission. If you attempt to start the boat and nothing happens, then simply pull the gearshift pin out into neutral, and move the throttle lever into & out of the choke position to reset it.

The speed pickup tubes do plug on occasion depending on the water quality. Usually a small pin will dislodge the plug. If not, once onshore the tubing to the pickup can be removed & pickup cleaned.

Experiment with speeds, line lengths, and ballast to see what you like.

Recovering the boat is pretty straightforward. Back in until the tops of the fenders are at the waters surface. Drive the boat onto the trailer, gently power it up to the boat buddy. Have the vehicle driver tell you how far to go and which way to turn the rudder, to avoid too much or too little power and not lining up with the catch. That person may need to shift the nose a little bit to either side until you get the hang of it. Missing the catch will not damage the boat, just back up & try again.

If the prop gets dinged, you will feel a vibration. The props are made of Nibral, (NIckel, BRass, ALuminum) and can easily be repaired. Swap the props while one is being reworked. Use a prop puller to remove the prop, gear pullers tend to pop off the shaft &/or damage the prop. Place a piece of wood between the prop blades against the shaft support & rudder to keep the prop from turning. Be careful not to further damage the prop.

You will notice some water in the bottom of the hull as a result of leakage around the prop shaft seal. This is normal, about 1 drop/min is expected to provide cooling for the packing material, which is a grease impregnated rope like item wrapped around the prop shaft & stuffed in the stuffing box. This can be adjusted by tightening the nut on the stuffing box.

I've used Muriatic acit to clean the boat hull. It is nasty stuff, but does a great job. More user friendly cleaners are available but can't comment on their effectively. Wax afterward of course. Interior care is pretty straightforward. Use a vinyl protectant for marine vinyl, not armor-all. Keep covered & out of sunlight when not in use. The cover can be cleaned just by hosing it off. The teak cleaner works well to bring out the natural wood color, we'd normally do that at the start of the season as part of the spring cleanup when removing from storage.

The transmission clutches & oil pump were rebuilt prior to last season, at about 650 hours. The transmission is a simple Borg-Warner single speed forward/reverse transmission. A rebuilder told me these tend to see clutch plates needing replacement around 6-700 hours, as mine did. My dealer told me that the motors are good to 1500-2000 hours before needing rebuild. It is not uncommon for people to ruin motors by allowing the block to freeze, so when in doubt drain water. The carburetor was upgraded for improved starting prior to the 2010 season, and has worked very well.

The buttons underneath of the switches on the instrument panel are circuit breakers. If you loose power to something, these will reset it. The aux power switches need to be on for the radio & amplifier. Good practice is to run the blower a couple of minutes prior to starting, though we have started the boat many times without doing so. Make a habit of turning the blower on when shutting the motor down. We tended to leave the blower on all the time when on the water. Put the bilge pump to auto when the boat is on the water. You can veriy operation by flipping the float under the motor. Of course, make sure all switches are off when the boat is not in use.

We trailer the boat with the glass windscreen open & cover off to prevent damage.

Nice boat, fair price, detailed ad. Should sell quick this time of year. GLWS. Though the hull was redesigned in 96 (based on the 95 - 97 190 hull) and which the Xstar/X2/X1 were based on. Not the 91 - 95 version.

Previous owner had it done. I guess around 600-700 hours the transmission clutch and wire go bad? Anyway he had it rebuilt and replaced all seals and the driveline by a MasterCraft dealer. The boat drives flawlessly and pulls very quickly. Never had a problem getting someone out of the water when wake boarding.. I have GoPro videos of tubing and wake boarding that I will be uploading soon.

It shouldn't be that hard. You just have to fill the holes with fiberglass, then throw some gelcoat on there. The holes may be noticeable, unless you get them paint matched which will cost more. I am sure it wont be more then $300-600. The tower could be sold for easily $500. They go for $800 new.

Just a little unsolicited advice. Don't ignore the lowballers. Politely decline their offer. Buyers and sellers only have one chance to be unreasonable. Buyers start low. Sellers start high. The lowballers may have more money than they let on and may be truly interested in your boat. If you are polite, even in declining their low offers, they might come back with a more reasonable number.

Sure, the number may be ridiculous. But there's nothing wrong with telling them "no." It's all in how you say it.

The tower and racks nudge the price up - 12,500 is a very fair price - plus the boat so clean. There are number of younger boats for sale in this price range but no tower, racks or bimini.

The tower and racks nudge the price up - 12,500 is a very fair price - plus the boat so clean. There are number of younger boats for sale in this price range but no tower, racks or bimini.

Where else is it listed? Besides here? Did not see it on onlyinboards, craigslist or boattrader.

I have it on my local Craigslist and boat trader. I will be posting it on other forums and sites this week. With this weather stalling everything I have to wait till early may to even begin with people seeing the boat

Yea, just got another few inches of snow last night....so ready for Spring!

I agree, crazy market right now b/c of all the weather shifts. Be patient, it will start to pick up again.

Doug, I was down in Dallas last weekend and loved the 75 degree weather! Thought about you during the V-ball tournement because you are so close. Skiing was definitely on my mind down there. :cool:

It's been in the upper 80s all week. But we just had some weather blow through and it's going to be in the high 30s tonight. Weird.

Onlyinboards and ski-it-again are great, but the one that got me the most traffic was a buy-it-now or best offer listing on ebay. A lot of the offers were low (those were mostly from Ric), but I had one that, had I not sold my boat on here at the 11th hour, I would have accepted.

I have been trying for weeks to come see your boat and potentially buy it..8p
But ou keep saying that you are too busy to meet with me, or to reply to my requests... eg. Serial number/ VIN requests, but still keep bumping your ad to generate interest?
If you serious about selling your boat, I'd suggest to PM me with some potential dates when you are available. As i'm from Ontario, I also really need your #'s to check for liens before a potential purchase for myself to prepare the paperwork to clear the border upon returning to canada.
I'm getting somewhat suspicious if you really have a boat to sell? I seem to be getting the run around :confused:

All my offers were below my asking price. I have decided to stay firm at 12.5k. Any lower and I am losing a ton of money. The boat is sitting in my driveway as of now. However I will not go any lower then 12.5k cash. My starting asking price was 15k.

Hi Shocker,

I can only make a offer to buy the boat after inspecting the boat in person. Unfortunately I am 12 hours drive away (Ontario) and want to ensure that this boat is as described before commiting an email offer to meet your asking price. Please repond to my request to speak to you via phone, and to make arrangements for a day and a time to inspect your boat. You have my contact info in my last PM.

its a great looking boat minus the cheap ugly tower. I still say in the market that 11500 is the right price especially with a flaky seller.

He is right up the street from me to. I have been looking for a 205 for over a year and at his price it is to much especially since he "needs it gone". Heck I missed one last winter newer with less hours for 7k which i know is not normal but deals are out there. 12k and up needs to be a 96 or newer imo. Not a 93 with 850 hours and a carb

I'd put 94 - 95 in the over $12K range. Some would prefer that model over the 96 and newer.

I see you didnt take ETS advice seriously. If you have to have 12500 for the thing then ask 13k to give some ground to make the buyer happy

How big of holes were required to mount that tower and where are you located? I guess I could take it off and sell it to offset the cost of getting the glass repaired.

What is wrong with the glass? AM seriously considering taking a drive down for a test run. I did not see anything wrong with the glass?

Nothing wrong with the glass. The boat looks great. If it were a different time of year I would be looking into this boat a little harder. If it had an LT-1 in it, I would have already made the drive over to look at it/foot behind it.
