The 2nd listing is the 2002 - The 1st listing has to be a late 90's or prior to 2002 model, with a 2002 era tower.

The older-style one is very well a 2002 19 Skier. I believe the 19 Skier ran up to 2004 (or was it 2003?). I'll have to check. Either way it is the same hull and all as your boat Erk, the notable difference is the standard engine and the engine cover that is right out of a '01+ PS 190 The decals, trailer and tower are right.

I bet they are both 2002 as stated.

Both are 2002's I think. The first one looks like it is a 19 skier/sportstar, a new version of the 95-97 PS 190's. Even so, I though they stopped making the SportStar's in 2000. Beats me!

Both say Prostar 190 on the side, which is why I was confused.

I looked REALLY hard at the 19 Skier. Unless I missed something, none of the pics are of good enough detail to read Skie 19 over PS 190 - same font. But, I am going blind and he could have bought some PS decals.

Regardless it's lame that the owner listed it as a PS instead of a Skier. Oh, the paint band is the other Skier/96-98 PS 190 give away.

Says he is the second owner. Maybe the first owner changed them out and he knows no better!

This one says Prostar, and then the numbers end in a "0", so one would assume it must be a "190".

Sorry, this one is a PRO TOURNAMENT, maybe that is the reasoning????

Good point. I suppose some salesman could have told the owner it was a PS too. I guess I'm one to do my boat geneology and not everyone does that. It should have been on the title, maybe not in all states. And it could have made it's way through a state like AL, where a handwritten bill of sale sufices.

Prostar ;)

There you have it, I am going blind.


I wish they still made the 19Skier. Here's some more info and pics.

Technically though.....isn't the 19 Skier (which that boat obviously is) still a part of the Prostar family of boats? Being based on the old Prostar hull, I would guess you could still call it a Prostar. Prostar 190 also has name brand recognition that 19 Skier does not which may help the sale of the boat.

Waterski mag has both of them (plus photo galleries) in their Buyer's guide for 2002.

One is the Prostar 19 Skier. The other is the Tournament Team.

Based on Waterski Mags review of the Prostar 19 Skier, it sounds like it was based on the hull design of the 91-94 Prostar hull design.

And looking at the ebay and review pics I have to say that it looks exactly like my 91 Prostar 190 from the deck down. The review even mentions the 22 0ff bump I am well aware of.

It is based on the 1995-1997 hull. I have a 1995 PS 190 and it looks identical to mine down to the windshield and everything. The Sportstar(95-97 PS 190 hull) was released in 1998 and ran through 2000. In 2001 they came out with the 19 Skier(same hull, deck, windshield, and dash) and made the interior(vinyl and padding) a little nicer than the Sportstar and added a few features like radios and a nicer engine cover. I thought 2002 was the last year for the Skier?
