Looking again for a new ski boat - recommendations?
I was looking a couple of years ago but for family purposes I had to put that on hold. Am now looking again and looking for recommendations. I have a family of 5 with 3 young children and space is important. I am also an avid slalom skier. I need a direct drive, open bow with a good slalom wake at slow speeds (30mph), but also some room to move on the boat. My budget is around $20k. I have found 2 possible options. One is a 1998 MC prostar 205, with about 650 hours. The other is a 2000 MC prostar 195 with about 750 hours. The open bow on the 205 is much larger than the 195 but I understand the ski wake is better on the 195. Please let me know your thoughts on these, and other options you would recommend. Thanks very much.
