1991 Prostar 190, what's it worth?

Hey Ballers, I am considering moving to newer boat. Can you take a look and tell me what you think it is worth? I am the 2nd owner and it has 627 hours. Power is the 351 Windsor with the 1:1 drive. I have completely refurb'd the boat over the last couple of years. The exterior has been buffed to a mirror shine, I installed new rub rail and updated the decals. The interior is brand new as of last summer and a new carpet. The speedo's are GPS, new stereo, and a new dimensions tower and bimini. Boat runs like a top! I was thinking $10,000-$11,000. What do you think?

    Nice boat! Love that hull. We sold our '92 in 2014. Super clean and solid, 285hp w/ powerslot and about 1,200 hours. Started asking 10,500 and sold it for 7k after 6 months on SIA and a bunch of lookers. I think your on target at 10/11k with the new interior and tower. What I found was not a lot of skiers really interested in a older closed bow tug.

    I got $12,000 for my 1992 last year with 750 hours. What I found is that location matters also. Mine sold literally in less than 24 hours, but we are in Idaho with not a lot of selection and people don’t want to travel or buy out of state. Mine had mostly new interior, graphics, tower all the goods as well. That is a nice boat so good luck! $10-11K is probably the right price.

    Good point @bigskieridaho, there isn't a ski boat dealership of any brand here in Vermont! Maybe I'll try craigslist first before SIA.

    @Jaypro if I didn't have 2 in college I'd be heading north to see that boat. Good luck!

    @Jaypro the lack of local dealers can be a benefit and a problem, your local market won't be dilute w/ newer inventory but it also means maybe fewer users of ski boats.

    I bought a 94 for under 9K - in good but not perfect shape. No Tower/No PP.

    I am actively looking for a 91-94 with a dead engine and horrible interior to do what I've always wanted and strip one down so it doesn't need to be tarped.

    Your boat is in beautiful shape. It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it. It really depends on how quickly you want to sell it. I sold my 94 this year. I had it priced on the higher side, and a bunch of people on here said it was insane to ask what I was asking. I had a bunch of inquiries that went nowhere, and then suddenly, two people wanted to buy it the same week, and I got my asking price.

    I think you can get 10 to 11k for that boat, if you're willing to be patient.
