ok - i used to remember everything about the company but my memory is slipping these days
Brunswick corperation owned ProCraft & Astro until Johnny Morris (BPS/Tracker) bought majority shares in 1999. Johnny Morris had previously first purchased Fisher Bass boats, but then dropped that line to place ProCraft & Astro into the 'Marine Group'. He continued to have ProCraft and Astro built in the ProCraft plant in Tenn. He considered these boats the next level in quality bass boats at an affordable price. Many of the workers didn't stick with the company however (i think several of them went to Stratos/Javalin). In 2000 building techniques changed and hull design changed. In 2007, ProCraft launched a new line of bassboats that continued a couple more years until the line was halted. I'm not exactly sure what happened to the Astro line other than rumers of the original owner (Astroglass) tried to get it back - again not exactly sure what happened there but Astro was dropped before ProCraft.
When Procraft came out they were known for quality & attention to detail - - Bill Dance absolutely loved them! They had style, and had some very nice lines and lots of options. They really did well in the fish n ski segment also. Your question was: Were the '89's dependable and I have to say that depends on how it was kept. You'll have to go over that boat yourself and maybe even take a tech with you. That goes for ANY BOAT that old however. Good luck.
There ya go
