That boat looks pretty clean. Again, I am not big on purple either, but it looks nice on that boat. Price is not too out of line, although I think I would be comfortable at 11k.

Aluminum cylinder heads, fuel rails, multi port injection, and intake I would think are the biggest differences I can think of, it is a gen 2 block which is similar but still different then the gen 1 tbi block. They used a northstar ignition system which ditches the problematic optispark used in cars. they run more compression due to the reverse flow cooling design. These engines can really wake up with a cam and pushrod/spring upgrade. I'm sure someone has a stroked one out there with a supercharger

Wink Purple '94 Prostar 190

There has been one listed on BoatTrader.com for a while now that appears to be the same color scheme, but it's a '94. Pretty sure you're not driving to Florida for that one though. Might make for a nice comparison. Not sure why it has been listed for so long, seems like it would be very desireable year with the EFI (but not LT-1). Maybe it's the purple (Barney, anyone). I like the multi-colored bimini.

I spoke with the owner, and he is not even sure he wants to sell. Only needs the money for a down payment on a home, but will not find out if he is approved till Tuesday. He does not seem to be real negotiable on price. Even if its immaculate I cannot justify paying more than $9000 for it. There is one just like it about 9 hours away, only it has the standard EFI engine, but has PP SG going for $6500 . If it wasnt so far away I would have probably bought it. I just don't have the time for a road trip right now as I am working 6 days a week . I'm hoping to find a local one just like it at a reasonable price.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Owner with the purple 94' won't budge on price. Did not accept $9000 offer which is fair. Not gonna pay above value for it. Keep the search on.
