MasterCraft bills the ProStar 19 Skier as a hardcore ski boat. Although it is the least expensive boat in the MC line, the manufacturer does not intend it to compete with entry level-priced boats. They say it is more of a purists’ boat – one for someone looking for a quality boat that will last a lifetime as well as one that has world-record-capable towing performance. The 19 Skier is MasterCraft’s value boat, but nowhere did the company scale back its commitment to construction excellence. It is built exactly the same as all the MasterCrafts, so the 19 Skier has the solid ride expected from a MasterCraft.
