    It seems like they are pretty good boats. I've had an old Glastron and a Rinker. I would say the Celebrity compares very favorably with either.The company had a pretty complicated history. Somewhere along the line I heard that they(Celebrity) shared hull molds with Crownline.

          The only info I've seen, of much interest, on Celebrity was this site and Trailer Boats forum which, btw is a pretty good site.Sorry rob, I don't know a thing about firestars. I guess my theory on powerboats is that if the motor or drive train needs fixing, parts are available through Merc or Volvo. Most any other part on the boat is available through Iboats, West Marine, etc etc. If you punch a hole in it or it rots you either pay a fiberglass shop or do the work yourself. So, I've never lost much sleep about brand names and owning an orphan (Celebrity) has never been a problem.

                Just traded in my 1993 Celebrity 180CX on a 2005 Larson Senza 206. It was my 1st boat (I had owned PWCs before that), and it was great. Never had a major problem with the 3.0LX Mercrusier, and that boat was solid and FUN! If Celebrity was still in business, I woulda bought another one.Here's some pictures:

                    I love my 1990 Celebrity 3.0 18 ft too. I love the way it sits close to the water and the weight makes it cut through most waves with ease. Has a very sleek sporty look to it. I am thinking about buying another Celebrity so I will have a backup lol

                            fuel in this part of the country is about $3.20/gal. I'm thinking that those 3.0s and 4.3s are going to be looking better and better to people.Speaking of cool looking Celebrities has anbody seen this on ebay? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1996-...spagenameZWDVW

                              I have a 1996 21ft. Celebrity Firestar Limited Edition. It has the Mercruiser 350 Magnum. Port Fuel Injection, Bravo one, silent choice, Cuddy cabin. I love the boat. When I first saw it on the water I was really impressed with it's look. I was in the market for a larger boat and the boat was being tied up to the dock. I walked up and asked them what year make and model it was. The girls on board told me the owner would be right back. He went to get the trailer. Once he had it on land I asked him about it. He told me he was thinking about selling it. So, I asked him how much? He told me 13,500. We set up a time to take the boat out the following week. It ran fantastic everything about it was like a brand new boat. I told him I'll take it. He asked when could we do the deal? I pulled out 13,500 cash and said right now. I hooked the boat up to my truck right there and took it home. He called me back about two weeks latter asking me how I liked it. I told him I loved it. He then said if I had any trouble with it he would buy it back. I think he was suffering from sellers remorse. It's a great boat.
