There's a prostar 205 on gumtree for like 18k.. nsw but I think it's near the boarder. Good bang for buck if you want an all rounder.

My mate has one, not sure of the exact model but it is on the new side. It is a good skiboat, has a nice flat wake at speed for slalom and footing, (I would rather run the slalom course behind his Raider than my Skicraft) plenty of grunt with a 350i. If your looking for a workhorse and can live without the bling etc then they are great. They are a fairly rough ride and don't cope with rollers well (at speed) but if your in good water you won't notice.

As I said they are a good skiboat so they don't throw a very big wake for boarding and you can only put 6 bodies (I think) in it.
