If I was buying a new ski boat today, I would consider the 190, the other one mentioned in this thread and the one that has carbon in its name.

I am looking forward to seeing the 2014 190/197 replacment. Is there a thread on hear about it yet?

As far as the link at the beginning of this thread, isnít it interesting how marketing can make the mundane sound interesting?

The best year MC boat is a 1972 - of course I am a little biased.

Correct Craft is nothing to snicker at, but I'm with MasterCraft all the way. In the future if we do get a another boat, it would be very difficult to pursuade us into a different brand.

Speaking of, In the SW Michigan area, Moomba seems to be gaining some steam. Most people who buy them are looking for a cheaper boat just to pull tubers though. They are nice but there's no comparison to MC in my mind.....I'm pretty bias though.

Soon I'll splash my 1993 all-fiberglass Malibu Skier (350 5.7 L mercrusier) that I am totally refurbing (vs restoring) and then I can compare her ride with my 1998 Sportstar 19 ;-) Let you'all know then...I'll bet she's a porche on water and will tug well.

I owned a Barefoot Nautique, good boat...right up there with MC in my opinion. No issues whatsoever with it, just like the MC boats I've owned.
