New PS197?

Is there really no new 197 for 2013? Any word on when the new hull will be ready?

Correct, I don't think a new boat will be around until 2014.

I'm sure it's coming, probably still in the development stage. What does your dealer say?
You could reach out to Jim@BAWS on here and see what he says....he's the Tampa area dealer.

Where do you ski in the northeast?

One thing to consider if you are looking for a new boat. The 2012 197 rocks, mine has the 5.7 with powerslot and I have been given nothing but praise this year at my tournaments. Its an excellent boat, drives like its on rails and the wake is great.

I too am looking forward to something new but.......I sure love my 197.

We ski in VT and have enjoyed the 197 quite a bit. As die hard CC owners we switched to the 197 in search of a little more space. Aside from a few glitches we've been pretty happy...skis great and super fun to drive but beginning to get the urge for something new.

Wow MC is really late to the party on this one........
If they wait much longer CC is going to put out another newer version of the 200
I thought that the new promo boats would be on the new hull???

They need to..Hull does not perform unless it has a 6.0I thought that the new promo boats would be on the new hull?

I have first hand reliable intel on the new Prostar for 2014. It will be named Prostar 201. MC wants to one up CC again ( cc196 vs MC197) . It will share some of the same characterisics of the new Xstar. It will have the funky rub rail dip and will also incorprate a small pickle fork front bow to address the complaints of the small seating area of the 197. It will have a rear swooping mini tower that does not interfere with shortline. . It will have a built in boom that stores itself in the gunnel when not in use. A push of a button will release the boom and it will telescope out automatically! No power tower, but now you got this cool auto feature. The engine will be pushed forward 3 inches as well as the gas tank to improve weight distibution. The storage locker is thinner but goes all the way to the floor. The dash will have no gauges. It will be one offset( simalar to CC) six inch screen . It will display all info and zero off. It will have two rope release systems, one specific to trick the other to slalom. The wake is supposed to be so faint and soft that it will sure to see new world records. As far as power plant, there is talk of a turbo charged V6 that is supposed to get better gas consumption than anything we have seen before.Thats about all I know right now, I am rooted to have WTT #1! Please do not share any of this info outside of TT , as it is all very secret.
