  • New PS197?

    Is there really no new 197 for 2013? Any word on when the new hull will be ready?

    Correct, I don't think a new boat will be around until 2014.

        I'm sure it's coming, probably still in the development stage. What does your dealer say?
        You could reach out to Jim@BAWS on here and see what he says....he's the Tampa area dealer.

        Where do you ski in the northeast?
        I was njskier on here.

            One thing to consider if you are looking for a new boat. The 2012 197 rocks, mine has the 5.7 with powerslot and I have been given nothing but praise this year at my tournaments. Its an excellent boat, drives like its on rails and the wake is great.

            I too am looking forward to something new but.......I sure love my 197.

              We ski in VT and have enjoyed the 197 quite a bit. As die hard CC owners we switched to the 197 in search of a little more space. Aside from a few glitches we've been pretty happy...skis great and super fun to drive but beginning to get the urge for something new.

                    I have first hand reliable intel on the new Prostar for 2014. It will be named Prostar 201. MC wants to one up CC again ( cc196 vs MC197) . It will share some of the same characterisics of the new Xstar. It will have the funky rub rail dip and will also incorprate a small pickle fork front bow to address the complaints of the small seating area of the 197. It will have a rear swooping mini tower that does not interfere with shortline. . It will have a built in boom that stores itself in the gunnel when not in use. A push of a button will release the boom and it will telescope out automatically! No power tower, but now you got this cool auto feature. The engine will be pushed forward 3 inches as well as the gas tank to improve weight distibution. The storage locker is thinner but goes all the way to the floor. The dash will have no gauges. It will be one offset( simalar to CC) six inch screen . It will display all info and zero off. It will have two rope release systems, one specific to trick the other to slalom. The wake is supposed to be so faint and soft that it will sure to see new world records. As far as power plant, there is talk of a turbo charged V6 that is supposed to get better gas consumption than anything we have seen before.Thats about all I know right now, I am rooted to have WTT #1! Please do not share any of this info outside of TT , as it is all very secret.

                          ummmm.......................you do realize this is a public forum for anybody to read right?
                          Interesting stuff though..........it will be interesting to see if it is true in two years time.

                          I just think that a 12 YEARS between hull changes is just a little much even for MC. I am concerned that they are spending too much time messing with super expensive wake boats(no disrespect) than dealing with the grass roots building blocks that Rob Shirley built the company on. The timing from a marketing persective is now (or last year) for something that could put them in the leading position in the waterski market.

                            R&D follow sales.

                            I'm sure this is not quite the norm everywhere, but at the Mastercraft dealers I've been to, I have never even seen a 190 or 197. As far as that goes I hardly ever see people skiing on the lakes. Kind of like skis vs snowboards on the slopes. Dying passions.

                              You, sir, get the prize for teasing a group of grown men. Well played!

                              This sounds like the boat you described.

                              To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
