    Little boat up for sale, What do u think its worth?

    Looking for advice on what u think this boat is worth fella's

    floor is very solid, transom feels solid when i tilt engine up and bounce on engine but there were holes in the transom, stringers were solid last outing a year ago as was transom, comes with fire extinguisher, set of flairs, 2 oars, 4 life jackets, whistle, 50hp engine tilt and trim, electric start, 100ah battery, will be installing usa timken bearings, a tiny bit of rust in trailer, fish finder old school

    both and trailer have rego untill feburary next year

    only thing it needs is new throttle cable a proper genuine branded cable

    i have a buyer for $1400 but i have just put in around 15 to 20 hours of labour just rectifying the problems i feel for $1400 im cutting my self off at the knees and selling my self short, i have been thru Gumtree on all boats $1000 to $3000 and nothing compairs they all have no rego or unworking engines or something wrong with them, mine once finished should have everything working even the needed throttle cable but that is the only thing needing replacing

    whats your opinions on whats shes worth?

    Mate I’ll give you $1500 and flip it in 24hours down here and make a tidy profit (provided what you say is correct, and the engine runs well).
    For the record, I sold my last boat in 6 hours on Facebook

    Hope that answers your question.

    orange sydney is a hard market to sell in most people just want it the cheapest they can get it for ihad an offer of $500, $800... one guy that has kept wanting it for the past week will pay $1400 so long as he sees it running down the lake

    worth more than $1400 , id say your mystery buyer is in fact a dealer wanting to shine her up and flip it.......sounds like it is structual sound and mechy allright , its only a cosmetic look that needs a buff and shine.............its worth around the $3000 mark

    As mentioned there are no boats like mine on there, here are a few im competing with

    I never bought my boat as one whole running rig i bought the b/m/t with a blown powerhead and not pumping water

    I bought all the safety gear that alone was $400

    Had to buy a powerhead and install it lucky found one on ebay in WA had it shipped over by my courier

    Had to buy a expensive timing light, two impellers, powerhead gasket kit

    I have seriously spent over 50 hours on this boat just trying to repair it more than half of that time with the gearboxScreenshot_2019-12-30-23-19-30.jpgScreenshot_2019-12-30-23-19-18.jpgScreenshot_2019-12-30-23-19-07.jpgScreenshot_2019-12-30-23-18-59.jpgScreenshot_2019-12-30-23-18-29.jpg

    Yes, but unfortunately, no buyer will care about how much you have spent or how much time you have in it. Hard fact. The old..."but it owes me $xxxx" counts for nothing. It is only "worth" what someone is willing to pay for it. Having said that, if it's all running, nothing to really spend, licenced, etc, especially with a full set of safety gear, it would have to be closer to the $3K others have mentioned.

    Gazza, I would put at least $2850 on it, you will have a little more room to negotiate. Don't sell yourself short.

    Agree with Dig's Gazza. I think your selling yourself short with anything less......

    Thanks guys much appreciate the help on a price

    There are minor things like the side combings are rotted and slightly falling off (side pockets inside cabin area)

    The trailer has minor rust

    Its the time to sell so i'll see what i can get for her after i fix the water pump and wheel bearings it was 48-49c here today so probably no work getting done to hot

    Just told the keen buyer at $1400 i have to spend more money on the boat it will have cost me $400 in repairs to get it seaworth, trailer in towable condition etc...

    Sprung $2600 on the buyer and he went shy

    I have removed the shitty wood bait board and the dicky bait board tap and pump arragement, pissed off the metal bracket that it was attached to, got rid of the fish finder transducer its a really old eagle fish finder i would rather seal up the transom than sell the boat with all this hanging off the transom and looking astetically ugly

    Drilled transom screw holes out than epoxied than sanded just need to paint over the epoxy

    Might give her a vacuum this afternoon with that big vacuum i bought for my big boat

    Love how forgiving gel coat is when sanding i ised 80 grit on level 1 bosch orbital and it only knocked the epoxy glue off the gel coat also went over some stains with the orbital

    Now need to give her a wash possibly temove all the shit stickers all over the boat especially ditch the bitch sticker! Than i need to work out if a polish will help the sale....

    Lovely hull with a good deadrise. IMO the motor might be the weak link. I would run a mile before I bought it because of that donk, but that's just me. I'd be more inclined to buy it with an old yammie for example, but that's just working from my experience, having bought a few dodgy boats in my time and getting stuck, notably on the Fitzroy, where getting out to swim home is not recommended. I reckon a polish might make it look better and sell better but will make it look a bit suss? Maybe not? Dunno.
