Smile Wanted Mastercraft X7/Prostar 197

Hello,

This is my first post to the forums! I'm the president of the University of Wisconsin-Madison's waterski and wakeboard team. We are looking to purchase a new boat for this upcoming spring season. We are looking for something similar to the Mastercraft X7/Prostar 197. We need a tournament level hull for our waterski practice and our wakeboarders would really enjoy the full size tower and ballast. We'd be willing to road trip anywhere in the country to pick up the right boat. Right now we are looking to spend $30k or less (hopefully less).

Let me know if you guys have anything for sale, or if you have any ideas for any other models that would match our requirements. We looked at prostar 205's but would like something newer.

Thanks!

What about the boys at Redline? They should be able to help you out.

D3Skier, that tournament Team Mastercraft is definitely slick, I think we'll need something with a tower though. (Have to keep the wakeboard side of the team happy) I guess if I could find a Prostar 197 for around 27000, then I supposed i'd have enough money to put a tower on it myself.

barefoot I checked out redline's website, and their inventory was pretty much empty as far as used boats. Perhaps I'll shoot them an email and see if they know of any other boats for sale in the area.

Does anyone have any other good sites to look at besides ski it again and only inboards?

Thanks!

2002 X7 It has almost 1400hrs for $23000. Seller says he motivated. Might be able to get a good deal if you can see past the hrs.

Thanks for the replies guys! We'll be throwing a lot of hours on the boat once we get it, so I think we're looking for something with lower hours to start out. That prostar 197 out of Nashville would be the ticket, but it looks like it doesn't have perfect pass or zero off which would make it a no go.

That Nashville boat looks real nice, maybe negotiate a better deal and have PP installed once you get it home. PP with Stargazer should cost around $1300-1400.
