This Mastercraft is ready to go! I purchased in 2006 as a second owner. This has the all fiberglass hull that changed in 1983. I have refurbished just about every square inch of this boat in 2007 and it is located in Denver, CO. Listed a $8,100 OBO



Interior - New Upholstery including rare rear seat, New carpet, New Stereo with iPod jack and satellite radio, Amp, and Kicker Speakers. New guages, Custom one piece Mahogany dash, new Perfect Pass Pro with magnet sensors, depth gauge.

Exterior - New decals, New rubrail, Wetsanded gelcoat to remove oxidization, original swim platform (needs alittle work), gelcoat does have some dings and stress cracks to be expected in a 20 year old boat.

Engine - This is where we splurged! New full roller 351 W block, powder coated red. Standard bore. Balanced and blueprinted. Speed Pro Hypereutectic Pistons. Edelbrock Aluminum RPM Heads. Edelbrock RPM intake. Crane Cams Energizer Rockers with studs. Crane Cam. Mallory YLU full electronic billet aluminum distributor, Holley 650 carb, Kodiak Marine Performance exhaust manifolds. All machine work completed by blue oval performance here in Denver. Paperwork included. At 5000 ft elevation we’re pushing about 330HP with a max RPM of ~5200. This thing is fast, I would be scarred to see how much power it would have at sea level. Great for barefooting!


Also included in the sale is a sky boom wakeboard pole, original trailer, travel cover, and miscellaneous extra parts (e.g. gaskets, hoses, carb jets, distributor adjustment kit, steering cable and column, impeller, extra speakers, extra prop, too much to list). This boat is completely turn-key and is ready to ski. Its been meticulously maintained for the last 6 years has 369 hours on new engine!

Nice boat! What'd you screw that amp into? Looks like it goes into the hull...

NO, did not screw it into the hull. We mounted it the same way that the perfect pass is mounted. Marine grade plywood soaked with epoxy and then glassed it to the inside of the hull. Pre-drilled holes (before glassing it to the hull) into the plywood and screwed them into that.

Did you hear anything back, or presumably not interested?

He never replied... Thought it was a good offer, but I guess not...

Sounds like he is thinking that if he waits he will get the asking price. That will change as time goes by and no other offers come in. It's on EBay at the same price. I thought used prices were negotiable. All offers should at least get a response. :D

He might be busy, or might be waiting for a better price... I thought 7k was actually a bit high, based off everything, but I love the vintage look and how well he did with the upholstery so I offered what I'd be willing to pay. I wish him nothing but the best in the sale, I am probably going to move on to something else in the near future.

Just reduced the price 10% to $8,250. This really is a boat where I just put too much money into it for a good resell. At $8,250 your are getting a lot of boat.

I'm going to pull on your chain a little while giving you a bump. If I remember correctly, a 10% reduction from $9000 would be $8100 wouldn't it? :confused:

Lol, Fair enough. Price is $8,100. Maybe I was rounding, but kind stupid to round when the math is that easy..

Thanks. I still think you have a beautiful boat. If you were closer to me I would at least be taking a good look for myself. GLWS and happy boating!

Price is dropping! Anyone interested? It's an awesome boat, I feel like I'm giving up selling my third child.

Hello,

I am new to this site and I just purchased a 1983 Stars and Stripes (Red) that has been dormant for 4 years. I noticed on your listing that you replaced the decals. Can you direct me in how to obtain new decals that look original. Thanks!

What color are you looking for? I have a complete set of white decals though.

I can't remember where I order them from. Can probably figure it, though I think it was somewhere on ebay.

Give MikeG205 a shout. He's got all the decals you need.:)

If you are looking for white decals I would really like to get ride of the ones that I've got. I paid $100 for them but would sell them to you for a fraction of the price.
