Prostar 209

It seem like there are a lot of prostar 197 up forsale, but I don't see any prostar 209. Is that mean, people who own the 209 like it so much that they intend to hold on to it ? Or could it be that the prostar 214 is lack of what the 209 has and people prefer to keep their 209 ? Just a thought.

I think a lot of people like the 209/X9s, I do (so far)
Our dealer says that the 9s are in high demand so far as used boats

If I recall right, the 209 doesn't have the numbers. There simply aren't that many around compared to the 197.

That is true, good point, our dealer has 2/3 more 197s than 209s(left)

I bought a 2001 PS 209 this winter because I wanted a ~21' direct drive for the best combination of space and skiability, and I'd be willing to bet a lot of 209/X9 owners chose it for similar reasons. Although the 197 is clearly a superior skiing machine, it doesn't have the interior space of the 209. It appears as though MC has tried to provide a better combination of space and skiability with the 214, but I'm just not a fan of the layout, even if I could afford it. Its nice to see MC branching out and trying something new, but I can understand how the 209/X9 would have higher demand in the used marketplace until the 214 gets out there more and wins over more people. That said, maybe it will sway my opinion more after I see it in person at my dealer's open house next Saturday.

We love our 209 for the same reason's. A lot of room for a family of 6. We can be comfortable on the boat all day long. may not be a slalom machine - but it gets the job done. We free ski, barefoot and wakeboard. We love it. As far as the 214 - good looking boat, I thought I would like the layout more, but even with the storage under the lounge seat - it still doesn't have the convienent storage locker in the back. We will be keeping this craft for a long, long time!

It would be nice to post your 209 on this thread also.

I have a prostar 197, and thinking about sell it or trade it in for a 209. My local dealer still has a 2006 x9 with an MCX.
