I will admit, I like the color combo, trailer, tower, etc.....but the price is high. I would still consider it though. Nice boat!

Nice looking boat. Makes me feel a little better about where I want to price mine although I think even $18500 is a little high. 16500 maybe though. Even then I would hope for perfect pass.

Well it does not appear to have perfect pass. Colors are nice. Looks nice, but hard to tell how many nicks and stuff it has. Even if the trailer has been recently redone, it is over priced. Keep in mind that is the asking price. From what I saw the past few years before I bought and what has sold around me recently, it is a $14k to $15k boat.

I agree that is a 14 - 15K boat
Prior boats - (3) X14's, (3) Prostars, and a Tristar.

Alright guys and gals, thanks for all the input. The learning curve has been steep and I have been reading until my eyes hurt trying to understand all the hull combinations and changes through the years. From what I understand now, the 205 hull is a tried and true hull that has performed well under a variety of applications. The more we boat the more we realize that having the engine in the middle is a pita, no matter how nice the wake for slalom. So, we have decided to go with a v-drive and since that decision I have been trying to find the best compromise of v-drive and slalom wake and I finally found a history of the 205 hull from which I have learned that the first generation xstar and '03 to '05 x2 and 205 are all the same. Further, that the v-drive configuration with this hull is about as good as it gets for under 30K. I would also like to learn to surf and play with a wakeboard so I am truly now looking at a crossover despite the fact that I slalom 90% of the time now. So, after all this I am looking at 2002 xstar and '03 to '05 x2's as the best fit for our boat wants (I was about to type "needs"...we have it so good don't we all?) at our budget. I almost pulled the trigger on this 205 but something kept me back and now I am very glad I didn't. Thanks again for chiming in everyone. Much appreciated.

Always best to buy a boat that fits all your needs... I ski behind v-drives and as long a you are just free skiing it's that big a deal to behind a v. I ski behind Traxxx's Maristar and at 30+mph the bump is not bad at all... no if he only had a ski pylon
...A bad day water skiing still beats a good day at work...1995 Pro Star 205....
