5500 might be a little high on that.

IDK, if the engine hours are low - with a little TLC and a few thousand dollars for interior work it could be a solid EFI boat.

Middle window missing? Any engine pics?

Yes how many hours on engine? Does it have a maintenance log?

Another 1 post ad. No rule against that but this is not what you would call a boat owned by a MasterCraft enthusiast.

So what can we tell with what we can see....

Interior in bad shape with mold, non matching trailer (which looks to not fit boat correctly), guide posts snapped off, brakes are junk, gel coat faded/oxidized, center section of windshield missing, and no mention of hours just to name what I can see in the pictures and tell from the description. Based on the rust where the guide post was and the mold on the interior this could quite possibly be a saltwater boat as well which would explain why the original trailer isn't there.
Rode hard, put away wet. BBW.

What you can expect to pay to get this poor boat back in shape....

New interior - $3.5K - $4K
New trailer - $4K
New windshield parts (if you can get them) - $500 - $1K
Recondition hull (rub out, repair minor scratches, new graphics, etc) - $500 - $1K
Misc (oil change, trans fluid change, impeller, most likely steering cable, etc,) - $1K
Engine/Trans mechanical - No pictures so it's hard to tell but if the outside has been kept in this shape what do you think the engine/trans are going to be in?

The boat is (especially this time of year) is worth somewhere between $10K and possibly $15K depending on hours and condition. Unfortunately unless you can get it real cheap (like $2.5K - $3K) this is a parts boat, that is unless you want to sink more money into it than you'll ever get back.

I typically would not comment on a member's boat but since this is a sales add from a 1 post member I feel it's fair game.

A lot and are you looking at the same pictures as me? Does this look like the type of owner that would keep a log?

Just teasing you here Mike.

I didn't notice missing window...dang losing my MCOCD as I get old...window missing really lowers value...trailer, etc to be expected with a boat that's neglected.

This is most likely a boat that was sitting in a yard somewhere that the current owner found, bought cheap and is now flipping. I mean "hey man this is a MasterCraft, do you have any idea what these are worth?". And BTW there is nothing at all wrong with that.

Hey if I could flip one like this quick I'd do the same. The key is being honest about the condition, which to a large degree he is. I'd also spend at least a day cleaning it up but I'm sure someone has at least that into it getting it to run for the picture.

If this isn't the case then the current owner gets to tell the potential new owner how/why they let it get in this condition.
