Thumbs up 1996 Mastercraft Prostar 205. Looks new.

Selling my babied 1996 Prostar 205. It's green/white. Only 447 hours (only 24 hours/year on average.) Beauty. Kept inside garage, works like a champ, 2 year old marine grade UV resistant Sony stereo with weather cover and four high quality Sony Xplod speakers for rocking sound, waterski mirror, battery switch, Straightline Launch Pad weight system for wake boarding, nice teak swim platform, bimini top, tandem trailer with custom chrome wheels and 2 year old tires/brakes/turf on runner boards/new boat buddy and new receiver (that works much nicer than the stock surge-break one), detatchable tongue, matching spare wheel/tire, Mastercraft boat cover with logo across windshield and two support bars to keep water from pooling. I have taken great care of this boat and planned on keeping it forever which is why if anything ever failed I replaced with the best available parts. I am half reluctantly buying a newer boat as a relative is getting rid of one I feel I "can't pass up." Kids don't want me to sell this 205 as they love it too with many great memories. It's so fast out of the hole you have to get people up less than half throttle or it will rip the rope out of a grown man's hands. Makes me sick to get rid of it so buy it now before I change my mind . A steal at $14,500.

If you want more photos, you can see them on my Google drive folder here (just click or copy/paste the link):
https://drive.google.com/folderview?...2M&usp=sharing

I took 81 photos not knowing there was a 10 photo limit per thread. I wanted to show pictures of every nook and cranny to rival even the best colonoscopy. I figure if it was me buying a boat TMI wouldn't apply. I took close-ups of the carpet which looks practically new, the cushions' seams (the captain and passenger seats are newly upholstered and match perfectly--the others should last another 10 years++.) The upholstery is in great shape aside from one small tear on the engine cover top but you can see that in the Google drive photos as I have my finger in the photo pointing it out. I also took a photo of the back seat support system I designed out of 1" PVC. For those that know the design flaw of the back seat that the 205 has knows the situation. I bought a new aluminum support rod (that the newer models started using but not the 205) which wasn't sufficient. So I designed my system after consulting with two dealers and an upholstery shop that came up empty. My PVC system still allow for storage and simple removal of the back seat. The back seat is now so strong you could even have your mother-in-law sit on it. I'm quite proud of it so much so I'd say they are ingenious . Took me 3 hours to build them so precise. I'm an orthodontist and deal in millimeters all day. Close isn't good enough compared to perfect.

Call 2zero8-7two4-6nine24 or reply to this post. I'm in Nampa, Idaho. Willing to drive for a day to drop off to help with distant pick ups.

Great looking boat!

Glad you were able to get the pictures uploaded!


Just wanted to clarify that the motor in your picture is not an LT1 as your information says in your profile...

Thanks for the LTI info. I corrected that. I'm not mechanically inclined and don't know what that means or why I have that on my profile. What engine do I have?
