That interior looks like it's getting ready to let go.

This is a good read on buying a used boat from ETS>http://mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showpost.php?p=257514&postcount=47

I would definately agree on the interior!! Pictures can mislead, but the exterior looked good..

Ad states it's a MasterCraft tower but it is not. Aftermarket install could lead to stress cracks from mounting locations, so maybe ask for some close ups of all four leg mounts?

#1 - search the net to get basic pricing/conditions/hours. For example:

http://for-sale.yakaz.com/mastercraft-maristar

#2 - looks like he has already dropped the price $1K in the last 13 days (says $12,800obo in the body of the ad)

Thanks again, I think I'm going to tell him the max I can pay is 10.5 and thats if its in as great of condition as he claims before I make the 2 and half hour drive and see what he says because he swears up and down 11,800 is as low as he can possibly go and his wife won't let him sell it for anything less.

If you are a skier, you can find lots of prostars for sale around that price range (or less)

If you wakeboard you may want to hold out for a nice 205V.....may cost a bit more but worth it for a great all-around boat.

Keep in mind that interiors get expensive to replace

The interior does look like it's getting ready to go. Discolored and it looks like some cracks.

The wife saying not to sell for less, is funny. She is saying "that thing has to go take any offer you get"

So true...she wants rid of the boat with any offer b/c the new furniture is arriving Saturday morning.
