Can you show us some pics of the 195 outside, pics of the motor, interior. Hours are low, but depends on how well the boat had been up kept. Is the boat on the original trailer, salt water/fresh water boat. Southern boat/Northern boat. Northern boats tend sell for more. Stored inside/outside, stored on lift or in the water. Lets us know what you find out.

$15K give or take. There's one for sale here somewhere for almost $20K, but that one is overpriced, IMO. The 195 is an open bow version of the '95 - '97 190, which is a great ski boat. The "open bow" is just a small little bow. Not nearly as open as a 205.

Yeah indoors its whole life California boat no salt and looks brand new. if you want to see what it looks like just pull up a dealers catalog of a 2000 prostar 195 it showroom condition. dual a axle trailer with disc brakes and aluminum wheels.

Thanks for the hull info but I found a old post from 2015 stating the same thing you said. Also not many around since from I'm reading that only made them in 2000 and 2001.

Big reason I'm interested is it will fit in my single car garage side and my 2 car side is my man cave and its the only part of my house I have left!

I'd go a bit higher than John for up here in Michigan. Based on hours, condition and time of year (being as I would hold the boat for another month or 2 before selling), I'd put it closer to $18K. It's a small boat with limited market these days so moving one can be difficult if you're not willing to wait for the right person that wants it.

I'd grant you a little more than $15K given the showroom condition. $18K is at the very highest end of the spectrum, IMO. There have been some super nice '95-'97 190's for mid teens. I sold one in very good condition (not showroom) with LT-1, powerslot, and PP for $10K 2 years ago. I think I could have held out for $12K. The 195 does very little more than the 190, except allow for 1-2 small kids to enjoy the bow.

Just remembered this thread on the history of this model.

Blue one in the top photo is exactly the same boat.

This very nice 205 for $18K is an example of why I say $18K max for the 195. Unless you are die hard slalom skier, the 205 is usually a preferable boat than the 195. And if you are a die hard slalom skier, good chance you'd prefer a closed bow, which can be had for less than $18K. I'm not knocking the 195. I personally prefer it to the closed bow. And showroom condition adds a lot of value.

I owned the 99 Sportstar Open Bow, which became the 195. I loved that boat and regret selling it. At the time, I weighed the price to add Perfect Pass, tower, and refresh the trailer against a new boat. I bought a new boat.
The great thing about the boat for me was the size. It fit in any standard garage. It skied great. Very responsive, and could board if you needed it to. The hull looked great.
The open bow is really only for kids (small ones). Storage in the back was great.

I own a 97 205 and it's nice with better room up front. I would trade for the 195 for my skiing needs.
