I've never owned a Mastercraft, though I did own an 1986 Malibu Skier w/351 Ford for about 4 years and it was my first ever power boat. That said, I've decided to seek out a 1991-1994 Prostar 190 and I'm in the Southeast.

Very soon I'll be looking at a Teal/White with Red stipe 1992 Prostar 190 I found for sale about 5-6 hours away. Trying to ballpark the value of the boat, before I make the long drive to test drive and make a CASH offer... Thanks in advance folks!

Pros:
Original owner, so full history possible (as long as owner discloses)
Always stored indoors (well almost always, maybe a couple years in a carport)
560 hours on the original 351 Ford v8, running nice
Claims always fresh water run
Nice interior w/just one seam starting to separate
Gel coat/exterior in "excellent" unfaded condition, though rear letter stickers faded/aged
A few skis maybe thrown in on the deal

Cons:
Pretty sure it is the base 240hp version of the 351 and most likely the 1:1 trans
Minor dock scrape in gel coat, owner claims I would only notice if pointed out
Kill switch not working
Single axle trailer has broken/bypassed surge brake unit, but new tires and repacked bearings, could look rough we'll see.
High asking price (more like 91-94 Stars & Stripes money) but is "negotiable"...

Thanks folks in advance!
