1999 Ps 205

Looking at a Pro Star 205 at a dealer in Minneapolis. They've had it for a couple of months. The more questions I ask the more it seems like a project.

-standard 350
-500 hours
-standard transmission
-hull is in nice shape, shiny
-seats are fair to not so good, 6" rip in back
-trailer is good
-cover is all ripped up and it's a snap-on not original
-no tower, no extended pylon, no cruise, no upgraded stereo
-4 blade prop has some dings
-platform needs to be refinished


So totally standard boat here, absolutely no options or upgrades

Looks like it could be brought back.
The low hours are a plus.
The lack of tower or other junk is a plus IMO, although it sounds like you may want one.

It needs a couple grand in canvas and vinyl work.
Buff and maybe decals.
Swim platform and other cosmetics.
Trailer probably needs to be gone through.

Assuming it runs well I'd be thinking $8k-$9k if I were buying.
It doesn't show well so they can't be expecting top dollar.
Put a couple grand and a few weekends work into it and you would have a really nice boat
you could sell for $13k - $15k.

I'm with poorhouse - I don't think you are getting a deal for any more than 8K.

Tarp is an issue - I do actually love snap down tarps but you now need a full custom cover - and the snaps across the back give you no way to tension the cover also looks like they ran the snaps down the sides too high and the cover is basically forced to be saggy - if you have the cover made tighter or lengthen the pole those snaps will pop off and water can blow under. There is also no provision to tension the tarp in the rear.

500 hours - on the tach or on the engine? Boat just generally has way more than 500 hours of apparent wear. Trust condition not hours.

In Oklahoma I purchased a 2000 205 that appears to be in only slightly better condition than that for 10k this spring. Came with tower, near same hours, barefoot pole, and upgraded stereo that all works. I'm not saying I got ripped off or got a smoking deal. Just adding a data point which, unfortunately, is from a completely different region.

If I have limited mechanical issues with mine for a few years, I'll consider it a good deal. I thought I didn't like/want the tower but it sure is handy for storing stuff off the floor and for helping install the barefoot boom out on the water.

I'm thinking 9K or less....looks like she could be brought back as per some of the previous notes...what does standard 350 mean? not an LTR or LT-1...I would think a lot of elbow grease and TLC ...5of theese$$$$ you have a very nice MC

Tough crowd
To some degree, all used boats are a “project”. Even the best maintained ones are not perfect. Are there any service records? It’s easy to assign a value to needed cosmetic issues, but none of what I see would prevent you from using the boat “as is”. If rear seat is only rip or damage to the interior, just have the rear bench reupholstered (or throw down a towel). However, a cylinder that leaks down, or transmission that slips....well that’s a whole different animal. Solid maintenance records and verified by dealer, I’d go as high as $12-$13k if dealer agrees to send off prop for refurb or replace and attend to any other maintenance. No maintenance records, I’m below $10k or way less depending upon what’s up.
