Buddies looking at a boat - good deal?

I gave my buddy boat fever over the last weekend, and talked mastercrafts up a lot. Anyway, he's looking at one, and it sounds good, just thought I'd get some people to concur on my assessment.

1999 Maristar 205V
275 hours
LTR motor
Perfect Pass
Cover
Bimini
ND Tower
Tower Speakers
Board Racks
Teak Deck (good shape)

It's on consignment at a dealer, they said they'd sell for 19,500 and would plumb in ballast with bags, and are completely redoing the interior. Saidt he boat belonged to a MasterCraft mechanic.

My buddy said it needed a little TLC (buff and wax) and the interior... otherwise to me this sounds like a deal he needs to snatch up. Agreed?

He's a long time Cobalt lover, who I pulled up on a surf board over the weekend, and have successfully turned him into an inboard lover. This will be his first boat.

All those extras on the 205v hull and under $20k. I say deal. Especially with new interior going in and ballast. I'd work in the option of new owner picking colors and materials.

i figure with a new interior ~$2K minimum and a ballast bag ~$200 it's a decent deal.

I'd have them re-do the carpet at cost - as in no labor fee since they will already have the interior pulled..

Depending on number of pumps and bag sizes, you're looking at about $1k easy. One pump is around $200. Three is typical. Your smaller size bag for a rear locker is $150ish times 2. A KGB will run about $150. Add in connectors, thru-hull intake, hose, thru-hull vents/drains, labor..... Now your install may vary, but this is the typical setup that is run on early 2000 X Series.

205v - nice... I like the new carpet idea - with tower.. I say go for it if the engine has been cared for too.

You know you want it. You're probably twitching you need a hit of MastrrCraft so bad. Just tell your Buffy that this one is all done and you can save him a lot of time effort and possibly money.

You forget I still have my MC, you know...

I called my dad last night trying to get him to buy it from me to keep it in the family. I used the trick where I had both him and my mom on speaker phone, and I could tell my mom was all in. My dad shot it down though... damn!

I had to move it to a different garage yesterday. She looked good behind the truck again. I need to dewinterize it and take her for a spin.
