What is my 90Tristar worth, looking to upgrade!

Hey guys, lost my old login info so i had to make a new profile. Anyway...

I am looking to buy a new wakeboard/surf boat this year, but i have NO idea what i should sell my 1990 mastercraft tristar for. If you could give me any rough estimates, that would be great! Here is a little about my boat

She is a great boat, the last two years with her all i have had to replace is the battery and she cranks over first time everytime! For a 1990, that aint bad!
600 hours
Brand new battery
Professionally detailed 2 years ago
Rear bench seat and driver seat have definitely seen better days
Last year put in a new cd player, 4 new side speakers, and 2 new tower speakers.
2 wakeboard racks.
All work has been done at mastercraft dealership
Original motor

Here is an wakeboard edit my friend made (it's the black and grey one)

Thanks for a starting off point. I am surprised that a boat that old can still be worth that much (but then again, it's 25 years old and still runs damn good and throws a good wake).
When I prep it for sale in the spring, i plan on making a walk through video.

How do you usually post pictures on here?

$8K is about right IMO.

Yes, $8ish. Compare prices on BoatTrader and OnlyInboards.com for another perspective. Depends on time of year as well.

(FYI, I paid $8500 for my 91 TriStar 6 years ago! Redid the upholstery and carpet, and sold it for $11,500 two years later.)

Trailer? If so, it's condition will play into it as well.

I sold my closed bow for 8,000 a couple of years ago, I think it had 625 hours.

We have a few around my area for sale right now all 190s open bow listed for over $10k. I bought mine in May 2 years ago 88 220 with 454 motor, tandem axle trailer for $7500. Like others have said it depends on time of year and what else is out there. I feel with upgrades I could easily sell mine in spring for no less than $10k.
