Too much dinero IMHO.

Lots of nice boats for $12k, newer and so on.

Everyone wants to retire on their used toys...

A wise friend once told me, there is a big difference between advertizing and selling. What does the boats owner want to do?

I have a verbal agreement to buy this boat for $10k. I put down $300 to hold it. Sounds like this might be high. The boat is in really good shape and this is an original owner boat.

If you are willing to pay that price, that is what it is worth.

My opnion is that the price is too high.

However, I too have paid a premium price for a boat in good condition.

My market price indicator says ~$8,500.

seems a bit high, but looks good in the pics.

Save yourself some money and buy my 89 tristar for 8500.00

Questions for you. Are you primarily a slalom skier, and if so how advanced? If you really want the flattest wake hold out for a '91-'94 or a '95-'97. Plus if you spend a bit more you could get an F/I engine (94 Lt-1 or 95-up)
If you barefoot, again a newer MC would have more HP for that but not really necessary unless you're a heavier guy.
Also that trailer is a roadrunner, not an MC so to me that lowers the value.

On the plus side, that is really low hours for a boat of that age. (if it's true hours....hour meters are easy to change out and there is no ECM to check on that boat)

A compression test is important, I'd get one done.

Oh and if you want to wakeboard behind it, you may want to keep looking.

Dude...everyone here is telling you it's high and these guys know. It does not have a mc trailer which as mentioned above reduces the value. Don't let boat fever take over. If you have 10-12 grand you can do better. I have a 88 and love it but for the $ do yourself a favor a look a bit more. Personally the absence of the mc trailer and the unusually low hours throw up a red flag for me. 300 hours is 12 a year for a 25 year old boat. I would really question that number. When I got mine it had 800 or so hours, a sky pylon, an unbelievable stereo, two covers including the Mastercraft cover, a new carb, electronic ignition, brand new carpet and interior a nice mc trailer a spare impeller, a case of oil and all the original manuals and service records and I was just a hair over 7k and that was less than a year ago.
