Hey guys new here and looking for a boat this popped up in my area and just wanted to see what you guys thought about it.. Price? Condition? Opinions on it? I mostly wakeboard with friends but would still like a nice ski/foot wake at speed.
Any input would be great!

Take a look at my boat post. Its a 93' prostar 205 with a wakeboard tower.

^^205 is a better choice for all watersports. I doubt the ski wake behind that 225 will be very flat. BTW, I think all LT-1 engines in '94 were 310 hp, not 350 as stated in that ad.

Is that a wash down hose in the cockpit (coming out of the port side seat base)? Why?:confused:

i had that exact hull and model.

it was great for room. good for wakeboarding. good on power. ok on skiing

i loaded but over 800lbs of ballast on either side on the engine with another 700 up front in ballast and hard weights and the wakeboard wake was decent. could probably get comparable wake from the 205/205v hull to be honest tho.

most annoying thing was the lack of a true swim platform. the cut out type platform was too small and got on my nerves keeping board/ski marks off it.

sounds like a good deal for the money. color scheme seems good. it'll run until you just want to upgrade.

it also looks like its been taken really good care of.
