2000 pro star 205

Asking price is 12,500. The gel coat is slightly faded but all the interior is in great condition. Has 1050 hours on the Ltr 330, has prefect pass. Says a couple of the gauges donít work prefectly. It also includes a tower with Bimini and speakers. What is this worth?

Whatever someone is willing to pay. I dont think 12,500 and it has crossed the 1000hr mark which is a mental thing for buyers.

I know what boat you are looking at. That boat i think may have been in salt water too if its where I am thinking it is.

I think its around 8-9 in my opinion.

Seems like it may be a bit high, but it is definitely a sellers market. I sold my '99 PS 205 with less than 400 hours two years ago for 11 or 12k. It had the LT1, nearly perfect vinyl, and a nearly new Evolution custom cover.

It's not worth $12.5K. Too many hours and he's not telling you how much it would cost to fix those gauges, since they are medallion gauges. Could be between 500-1000 to fix the gauges depending on how bad / full replacement etc... Not sure if you would do the work yourself. An engine replacement with a rebuilt block will be like 6-8K with labor. Figure out what you would pay for the same boat with a new engine and then subtract $6K. That would be my estimate of price.

You should also take a really close look at the trailer. If the trailer is in bad shape, you'd need to put $500-$1500 into the trailer alone.

400 hours and good condition is the key here. At over 1000 the boat should be priced $4K less.

Who cares about that? He didn't say it has engine issues. 1050 is average hours.

If the vinyl is good and the engine checks out $12,500 is too low an asking price, at least where I am. The retail book price is close to 14k.

I could sell it for 8k with a big hole punched in the hull where I am.

In the current market, boat prices are 10-30% above average compared to previous years. The more desirable the boat, the more the mark up. I just saw a 2004 Wakesetter 23LSV sell for around 45 grand in about 2 weeks that would be selling for less than 40k previously.
