I agree with some of the others, a 205 will fit your needs and your budget.
Tristars don't hold their value as well, ride rough from what I hear also.

The tower looks nice for being an aftermarket unit.
Looks like it has a decent stero system and depth finder. Plus the appearance of the engine makes me think it was well maintained. 625hrs is low.
It's a good deal if it checks out.

That is a good price on that Indy boat especially with the LT1 and a tower.

Yea, I'd agree on the 96' as a decent boat. Definitely worth checking out. I have the 94' with the LT1 and it's a great engine....you will like it. If you do end up testing it, just watch the temp gauge on it and be sure the engine operates in a working temp window. It has 2 T-Stats but the final temp should be around 160 degrees.

Also, the 96' will have slightly better Wakeboarding Characteristics than the 94' so that should be a bonus for you. The 96' is ever so slightly bigger than the 94' as well. The 91'-95' is the same hull and then in 96' they changed it.....

Seeing posts like this really make me realize what a score I made on the '06 supra I picked up for 17.5.

If you look long and hard enough, a deal will pop up. There's an 03 (I think) PS209 for sale on this forum right now for like 17,000 I believe. Has high hours, but if it maintained that will be a great boat for a long time.

mzimme, how is the 20 ssv coming along? that poor thing was pretty abused!

benehana, one thing I have learned over the years of buying boats is that if there is a clean nice one at a good price you better jump on it or someone else will

with the exception of my x2 all the others that I have purchased have all been 5 hrs or more to make the deal.

Tristars don't ride any rougher than a ps190 of the same vintage, actually a little better since it's a little wider and a little deeper v. I've been in some good 2 ft. white caps while uncomfortable it was doable. People love to hate on the red headed step child of mastercraft known as the tristar...As for me I love mine.

Tristars hold their resale. They buy and sell for 7-9K and I think they will for a while.
