Pro Star 190 — Sammy Duvall Video
WSM: Who should buy this boat?
MasterCraft: The Sammy Duvall 190 is for the buyer who wants the absolute best. Similar to the buyer of a 911, he doesn?t necessarily take it out on the track and race it, but likes to know he can. This buyer just needs the feeling of being in the best boat he can buy. Is it a family boat? No. It?s still for the hardcore slalom skier who wants to go around buoys.
How is this boat different from the regular 190?
Most of the differences are in look, feel and comfort rather than performance. From the standpoint of the hull?s design and construction, the boats are identical. It skis exactly the same as the 190, except this boat comes with a 5.7-liter multi-port LTR MasterCraft EFI engine with Northstar ignition and 330hp. It?s got 20 more horses than the standard 190, so when you hammer the Teleflex throttle you get a little more out of it.
The biggest differences are that the exterior is almost all metalflake ? either in red, blue, copper, green or gunmetal grey. The interior has a polished instrument panel, aluminum drink holders, shift knob, pylon and a deluxe leather wrapped steering wheel with polished aluminum spokes.
Sammys come stock with the Masterview seating so the driver can raise his seat six inches. Both have a full range of options like the MTS (MasterCraft Training System), our offset ballast system that adds about 180 pounds of ballast to the passenger side to even out the weight. All Sammy Duvall models feature a lambskin or gray monochromatic interior. It has no accent so it looks kind of like an Eddie Bauer Edition. Basically, the vinyl is subdued and is a little more supple than the others.

Skiers from a recreational to world-class level will take a strong liking to the Sammy Duvall 190. The wakes are small and soft throughout all line lengths except with a little bump at 22 off. Skiers at 15 off in the 30- and 32-mph range will be amazed at the softness of the wakes. It handles the slalom course like a stud, providing minimal bow rise out of the hole and great tracking ability.
To cruise in ultimate style and comfort with a boat capable of elite-level skiing, the Sammy Duvall 190 is the clear choice. The low transom profile and plush interior give this boat monumental aesthetic appeal. With a comfortable throttle position and great visibility from the driver?s seat, this ride is a real gem.
This is more than just a ski boat. It may be the most stunning boat on the water. Yes, it offers the butter-soft wispy wakes of the 190 EVO, but the ?Sammy? makes a statement while allowing world-class slalom performance. Although its only real upgrade over the stellar performing Prostar 190 EVO is the 330hp multiport engine with the Cadillac Northstar system, the white gauges, chrome bezels, polished aluminum shift knob and pylon and Masterview seating make it even more of a pleasure to drive. Sharing the same solid feel, great turning and fantastic visibility as the 190 but gaining engine performance, classy looks and comfort, this boat is the ultimate from MasterCraft, which is a statement in itself.
