  • 1995 ProStar 205

    Hi, y'all. I'm checking out a 1995 205 this weekend for possible purchase, any quirks or oddities on this model year I should be specifically checking for? Overall it seems decently well cared for in the pictures with some normal age-appropriate wear. Just wanted to know if I should be sticking my head somewhere I normally wouldn't

    Same question for the trailer, as it comes with the original trailer as well.

    Thanks y'all.

    Great boat. Great ski hull. If you want to wakeboard or do other stuff, 96+ may be better.
    The center floor sections eventually go, behind the motor box. So if that is soft, not deal breaker, just a bit of work.
    Pretty simple to maintain diagnose etc.
    open bow window sometimes sags a little. Threads on here about that.
    That era vinyl seems to hold up well.
    Check steering cable for turning freely.
    I’d be most concerned about confidence basic maintenance had been done.
    Trailer is a 25 year old trailer. Brakes may or may not work. Concern would be ensuring it is not rusting from inside and will need replaced $$$. Odds of finding a used one are very low. So you will be dropping $4k on a boat / trailer worth 10-15k....

      Unless the trailer has been ignored and left sitting outside or has been in salt or brackish water, it's good for several more years. A good slalom hull being a Prostar series...the intended purpose.

        It doesn’t seem like it’s been abused or left out in the weather. It actually seems it’s spent it’s whole life in central Texas, so that’s good news. I’ll definitely check the center floor sections, so thanks for that. As always, I’ll hope for good maintenance records .
