2000 prostar 195 worth 16k?

This would be my first venture into the boating world. Would mostly be used as family boat with a little wake boarding a little tubing a little bare footing a little cruising. Would this be a decent choice at a decent price?

Thanks for the help!

Other boat I am considering is a 2001 moomba mobius for 1500 less and 200 less hours but no perfect pass.

Careful on that... that's a 205 and the listing for 16 a bit low for the year. Get a good inspections ask for hull ID and if title is in hand.

It is a 195. Seams a little low priced to me. Check mine out if you want a well cared for version. A year newer and less hours.

How can that be a 205 with that front seat configuration?

Agree Hammer's is much cleaner. So plus tower, minus condition it looks to be in line.

Looks like a good layer of lake scum on the bottom and looking at the marina pics it may have sat in the water all summer. Be sure to inspect the bottom for blisters and take into account a lot of cleaning. Be aware that if the vinyl has started cracking or separating it will need to be replaced. The entire industry had vinyl supplier issues around that time. Patching areas will only buy time until the next issue pops up. I'd say if it looks in good shape under the dirt and checks out mechanically offer 14 and settle in the middle somewhere.

Or check Hammer's out and pay a little more for some peace of mind on maintenance and not having to spend hours cleaning. Although cleaning and inspecting is a great way to get to know your boat.

That particular boat would not be my first choice, regardless of the price. Just not enough TLC for me. Docked in a slip is not my preference.

Here's a 195 that will serve you well and a fair price. ==> http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=58998

Hammer time.

Just because it's docked in a slip, doesn't mean it doesn't get tlc. Look at my boat. You can't put more love into my boat. Sits in the water all summer.

It is only in a slip in one picture out of seven and the rest are in a garage. If I was in the market, I would take a look at it. The pics don't show me any problems other than something with the carpet in this one:

My monitor isn't the best, so who knows?

Thanks for responses. Going to check it out tonight. Hammerheads 195 looks extremely clean but 20 minutes away vs 20 hours away keeps me from looking at his. Seller seems for real and is willing to take it to lake with me this week if I am serious.
