1990 Tristar 190 - What to price it at?

Prices seem all over the place from mid $5k to $10k range

Obviously I'd like to price her to get the most out of it, but why such a dramatic price swings?

Located in FL - Looking to sell soon

Also the back seats have faded some, so do I sell it with the faded seats, or have them redone beforehand?

Cost me ~$1,000 for the back seats and engine cover, which will make this thing like new, but then the new owner doesn't get to pick colors / styles, etc.

At those hours and if you have a maintenance log start at 9k. If motor and drive train look good.. summer premium will help.

Thats a nice looking boat and trailer looks good

I sold a 1989 TriStar for $5,500 back in March. It had 850 hours on the motor. Two seats were ripped. The gelcoat was in great condition. In you case, I would not re-do the upholstery as you may not get that money back when you sell.
Although I posted my boat for sale on TT and many people looked at it, Graigslist worked better in my case. I think for older boats for first time buyers, Graigslist has many more potential buyers. Good luck with the sale.
