There is one that is in St. Germain WI and sits in the guys garage year around. I only know it is there because I happened to drive by when the door was open. Have never seen it since, and I probably have driven past the house atleast 500 times since then. I would be amazed if it touched water more than once or twice a year. It is a true collectors piece!

Don't look now here is another...This one is REALLY UNIQUE I know I have driven it

Rod and Brian,
Be happy that these boats are asking and getting close to what they want. These OLDER MCs are holding value better than ever. I SOLD Brian's 88 for GREAT money. It was very well maintained. I SOLD a 93 PS 190 SLOT 3 weeks ago for almost 14K IMMACULATE.

You really want the values to remain as high as possible

It is a blue one. I highly doubt that it needs anything. From the way that he keeps his house, lawn, and other toys that are visible I would have to say the MC is pampered and cared for. I'd buy it in a heart beat!

Ahmen. Don't get me wrong, I hope for the sake of all of us with well maintained older boats that people continue to get all the money for them. Hey, I had my '88 for three years and I made a couple of hundred bucks when I sold it. The only thing that boat cost me was a little maintenance and gas. Not bad. And if the guy that bought it from you takes care of it and sells it in a few years it probably won't cost him a dime (in value) to own either.

I say the same thing with the houses in my neighborhood when a new one goes on the market pushing the envelope on price. Hope they get it. Better for me in the long run.

This boat has been for sale for quite a while. If I remember correctly either you or the actual owner had it for sale at the begining of the summer. Why hasn't it sold?? Price looks descent.

I think that boat actually has a grey hull not the usual white it is just hard to tell from the pictures.

Any boat is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Thus it's still sitting unsold.

For me, I am way over the 93 model because of this very reason.... Go jack someone else please... ;)

I'm looking for a 95 - 97 Pro190 or a late 209 (after being in both Jeff's and Bob's boats at Lake Cumberland... very nice rides indeed).

The boat went up forsale by me at the VERY END of the summer. It belongs to my brother in law. Dean Witmer in New York. Dean is an investor/minor owner in BAWS. Great guy very knowledgable. That boat is unique because it is GRAY instead of white. I have NEVER seen another one like it. All fresh water use. Dean is the second owner of the boat and has put less than 50 hours on it in 2 summers. The marketing on the boat my be out of wack I am in Florida trying to sell a boat in upstate NY. BAWS was able to get some FACTORY original skins for the boat before MC stopped making them for that year. So Dean has a few extra skins for it.

That BAWS LOGO adds $10 grand the boat...the new owner can remove it but I am sure it will help with resale

Just know that there is one out there forsale. Under 350 hours 285 HP HO 1:1 transmission 4 blade stainless cutter 13 x 13.5. New Clarion Stereo. MC single axle trailer full cover winterized

There is a Red and Grey S&S in Arkansas with red carpet. Here we have a blue 93 S&S with grey carpet instead of the blue carpet it should have had. It came from Phoenix. In Texas in 93, 6 were sold, 2 red in dallas, 2 blue Austin, and 2 I don't know in Houston. There weren't many made because who would spend 500-600 more just to have a retro look?

I know that this has been said before and it is worth repeating. This IS NOT an Anniversary Edition Boat. It was made the 25th year MC was made. Many owners where lead to believe that just because it says 25th in the middle of the steering wheel it is something special. That boat LOOKS SUPER CLEAN and should draw top dollar 14-17K. Someone may bite at 20K. (PROBABLY and uneducated buyer). I hope he gets top dollar for it. I do feel bad that he thinks that he has something that he really does not have. He will probably use that as a sales tool to the next owner.

Quoting from the 93 sales brochure:

" In 1993 the Prostar 190 also will be avaliable in a 25th Anniversary "Stars and Stipes" version. This special boat will combine the bold Stars and Stipes graphics of the early ProStar with the amenities of todays model."

With this said it simply was an option package the dealer could order. But I think it is fair to call it an aniversary edition or Stars and Stripes edition. Not many dealers ordered in mass quanites of the more expensive option package. Making it a little special.

The Prostar 190 Limited was truely limited to 25 hulls making it much more rare.

Maybe I just want special badging, but I was under the impression that all Pro Stars were 25th Anniversary boats in 1993. Only 25 of these Anniversary Boats were 190 Ltds, which sported silver metalflake and Lt1s. Stars and Stripes (also anniversary editions) was around a 600 option. I could be wrong, but my 205 says 25th Anniversary on the side. So 8p

George,
I will agree to disagree...Sort of "Clintonesque" to me " I never had sexual relations with that women"

Only 25 SILVER METAL FLAKE boats where made in 1993.(Not a Stars and Stripes) There is one here in Tampa with under 200 hours on it. The Stars and Stripes was only made in 1993 as a true anniversary option. We can dispute all day to whether or not it is an anniversary boat. I have SOLD ALOT of 93's since we have been open. None with the exception of Dean's was sold as a SPECIAL edition boat...could I have done that yes...but why ?

I have ALSO Sold many 1998's Would those also be considered anniversary edition boats? I have a 30th on the lot right now. What about in 1988 MC's 20th year "THE PLATINUM PROSTAR" Is a 1993 MC 205 considered a ANNIVERSARY boat. Some customers think that it is.

Just my opinion...my 2.5 cents...my pet pieve !!!( DO YOU WANT SOME BAWS STICKERS FOR YOUR CC ?) Jsut Joking cannot put a SMILEY FACE HERE it won't let me !!

The stencil symbolizes MasterCraft 25th year in business.

That other boat with the T TOP is a PROTOUR Boat or at least made to look like one. Probably is one. Where the SILVER fenders came from is beyond me.

Uh Right Jim, but I would have called Deans boat a Limited Edition if it were one of the 25 not a special edition. We talk Texan here though I was raised in South Florida. If I get to west coast I'll stop by if I need a sticker.

Doug,
The stencil symbolizes MasterCraft 25th year in business.

Ya see, it doesn't say "symbol of 25th Year in Business" though and I'm kind of a word guy. ;) It says 25th Anniversary and is stuck to the boat. Ergo, I'm calling it a "25th Anniversary Boat" when I sell it 30 years from now.

I'm off to peruse my 1993 Brochure and Water Ski Mag BBG.

Be well all.

Wow! Next time I get pulled over can I call you? You would be the first to argue my position stated above. "25th Anniversary," to me it says "hell yeah, we have been around 25 freakin' years!" Had they said "EDITION" I would feel it was specifically implied and applicable to my boat. Unfortunately it says "25th Anniversary" which has to only apply to Mastercraft itself! Where were you the night the Lindbergh baby disapeared? :D

What flavor is this one?


That looks like one of the Budweiser Pro Tour Boats. If I remember correctly there were only 6 or so of those made.

Any boat is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Thus it's still sitting unsold.

For me, I am way over the 93 model because of this very reason.... Go jack someone else please... ;)

I'm looking for a 95 - 97 Pro190 or a late 209 (after being in both Jeff's and Bob's boats at Lake Cumberland... very nice rides indeed).
Sporty, I am surprised to hear it.
Just curious how many here have actually seen a red 93 in person or on the water on a sunny day. I have seen both red and blue in person and can understand why the red is more desirable. I am still very pleased with how this boat runs and handles and of course we all know how nice the wake is.
You really need to see one to fully appreciate it, pictures do it no justice.
I'm sure that those who have owned one and sold it, still miss it no matter what they own now...

I like them immensley for one attractive reason, They are low-profile (shallower draft) like the 80's boats but yet have a newer life to them by virtue of the year (1993). I was not interested in a deeper hull for reasons of performance that I am accustom, but after I was around some newer models, I just drifted with the newfound interest.

Now with that being said, you know from previous personal conversations what I think about the 93s in general. They are fine boats but I am just not willing to get up off of 18 - 20k because they are a 93 anniversary. It's just not that important to me, although I do like the retro-fit style for that year model.

Your boat is a gorgeous boat without question, and I would seriously SO go $25k if you'd pitch in the wife for three summer seasons... LOL... (for decorative purposes only, mind you).
:uglyhamme

Your boat runs and performs very well because indeed of its design, thus my reasoning of sticking with these older boats. I like a shallow hull that responds on a dime, returning $0.09 in change... :D

However I will eventually expand in the Sporty household soon and I'll be looking for a 209 (or comparable) for the roominess, all the while I'll still keep one or two old schools as my hobby.

I have my eye on the 76 model here on the board. ;)

Sporty, how about a 197, you get some extra room and still have a very good handling machine. A 197 or X-7 will be my next boat.

Quick thread jack. When you quatoe someones post how do you get the photo to show up in the quote??If the original post (now a quote for purposes of this post) has the pic linked with HTML, it will follow the quote as such.

Seperate scenario:
If the pic was an attachment through the forum (initially), you can quote the post but the attachment will not follow. At that point, you can save the pic to your hard drive and reattach it in conjunction with the quote, but it still will be an attachment below the quoted text and not within the quote.

An option is to do this with an attachment, is to host the pic on a server hosting site that allows linking to the site, then quote the post or text as such and link the pic into the quote through HTML from the location that you hosted the pic.

I have another forum that I keep an area for hosting and host from my own server, thus always linking pics from within my own site.
