I paid $11.5k for my '95 Sunsetter w/600 hours last summer, I haggled the guy down from $14K. The Sunsetter suits my needs, it's got tons for room for a direct drive, a wake that satisfies me, and a pretty decent surf wake. It's leaps and bounds better then my old 87 Dixie Skier 19' direct drive I had for 10 years. I added hyrophase speed control, some more racks and in the process of plumbing it for ballast. I was really wanting to get into a V-Drive but I was unable to find one under $20K around here. It was by far the best bang for my buck with the local selection at the time.
My uncle just sold his 87 Supra Saltaire last week for $7.5K, it's was pretty cherry with good stringers/floors and redone upholstery. He sold it the day it was listed! You're gonna need to stalk the classifieds and be ready pull the trigger immediately to jump on a good deal as they go fast.
