1986 ProStar 190 Questions

Hey Guys,

I just joined the forum today and am in the market to purchase a MasterCraft very soon. I am interested in a vintage model and have found a 1986 ProStar 190 with the 454c.i. engine.

The price is $8,995 and there are 772 hours on the engine.

Do you think this sounds like a decent prices and ANY information you have on these boats, especially that engine option would be greatly appreciated. I am very new to the market!

Thanks for all you advice and opinions!

1986 with a 454 should be a great boat. Plenty O'power. Gonna suck the gas but hey you have to pay to play. Not a lot of the '86 out there with the big blocks. The 86 rides on the same hull as the '87 - '90 although it does have a different deck. '86 was kind of a unique transition year between the '85 and prior and the '87 and later boats. As for price, maybe a little high but if it is in really nice shape maybe not. I would probably prefer to pay more along the lines of $7-8k though.

Oh and welcome!

Thanks Brian...It seems to be in very good condition but I'm still going to try to work on the price.

Do you guys think the wake will be much different going to the big block?

Price seems high for an 86.I doubt that the 454 weight will make a difference for the wake from a boat with the 351.
But your wallet will definetely feel lighter after fueling that gas hog all summer.
Good luck!
Just a couples k more and that would put you up to the 91-94 era boats...Better boats IMO.

I bought an 86 2 years ago for 8k. It had been repainted and given new upholstery throughout. The engine (351) had 400 hours. We like the boat.
