35th Anniversary Prostar 197

****** SOLD *********

$28,000. Come and get it. Panama City, FL.


The Good:
Very rare, #21 of only 35 built
385 hp 6.0L Cadillac LQ9 engine, with closed cooling -- runs strong, serviced regularly
Only 402 hours on the engine
Powerslot transmission
48 mph top speed -- not the fastest boat out there, but it will get to 48 (or 34.2 or 36) faster than most other boats.
Perfect Pass
When not in use, the boat was stored in a garage under a pair of ceiling fans since I've owned it (2007).
This boat hasn't touched saltwater since I've owned it.
No major stains on vinyl or carpet.
No major scratches or gouges in the gel coat.
Full custom 35th Anniversary Mastercraft trailerable cover, no holes or tears
Black bimini top, no holes or tears
Clarion Radio/CD player with driver remote control, subwoofer, 4 new Polk component speakers, and 2 amps to drive them.
Extra OJ Nibral prop
Extra engine cover/doghouse -- the original one broke at the hinges, so the dealer (Mastercraft of Charlotte) had a whole new cover delivered to me.
Dual axle trailer, with hydraulic brakes and oil bath hubs. The tires have plenty of tread and there's a good spare. But, there is a rust issue (see below).
No mufflers -- provides a testosterone-pleasing roar
This boat is a sexy beast!

The Not So Good:
The trailer has rust. In a couple places up near the winch it is rusted through. That is why I'm not asking more money for this boat.
As typical for this year MC, the vinyl has some splitting at the seams on the aft sun pad/trunk lids, and the observer seat.
There are some stains in the carpet in non-visible locations (in the aft ski locker, and under the observer's seat).
There are some white scuff marks in the gel coat along the starboard side. They are not scratches in the gel coat; I'm not sure what they are but they aren't buffing out very easily.
Missing one small decal -- barely noticeable (see if you can pick out where).
No mufflers -- if you don't like loud boats...

I'll edit this post later if I think of anything else. Post here or PM me if you have any questions.

Interior pics.

There is a snap-in carpet for the bow area. I never used it and it's buried somewhere in the garage (#%^@$ wife). I'll find it.

Both! I haven't used the boat much over the past year (only twice this year) and I hate to see it just sit in the garage. I have some minor back issues, but after I heal/rehab I'll hopefully get back out on the ski course next year or later this year. If so, I'll probably start looking for another boat.
