Good day all,

Just found this forum and registered. Great site!!

I found a used 2009 Pro 190 with dual consoles, 150 OptiMax with around 80 hours, Motoguide 70lb, new batteries, Guest onboard charger and Lowrance X96TX finders. The boat is SUPER clean inside and out as is the trailer!! I will be headed back to go over the boat carefully this weekend but he won’t be able to take it on the water for me. Looking around his place, all of his equipment (tractors, mowers, vehicles, etc.) are well taken care of. I realize this means squat about the boat but it is encouraging. He is asking $16500 which is NADA average price. My original budget is $15000.

I'm a recreational fisherman and don't have plans to fish competitively, this is my retirement boat. If the electronics I listed above are good enough to keep me in the creek channels and on the points I'm ok with that. I am very comfortable in a boat but some of the family will be fishing with me so I need a platform that is very stable. Living on the gulf coast I realize the necessity of having enough motor to get you safe in a hurry when the weather is about to turn bad. I was hoping the 150 would get me to at least 50 mph. On my particular lake, I would run at a comfortable cruise speed for about 5 minutes before dropping to idle and easing along the channel through the stump fields.

I was wondering if this is a fair price for the boat. I don’t know anyone who owned a ProCraft so I have no point of reference. Any and all information/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

Sorry I can't really help you with your Pro Craft. The Opti should push you easily in mid 50's.

Welcome to the forum.

a 190 with a 150 is severely underpowered, you might see the 50's if all is perfect.

procraft is a good boat and well built from all I have seen, I would offer 13,000 and use the other 2,000 of your budget along with the 150 to find a 200 that runs good.

that boat should be rated for a 200-225 on the plate and a 150 is just not enough with a load if you are in a hurry.
