After recently inheriting a new to me boat I will be selling my older boat..  I have no idea what she is worth so I would like some input so I can be realistic with my asking price..

1982 Johnson 35 HP tiller steer

Minn Kota 50AT foot control TM

flat front casting deck with carpet

pedestal seat for front deck

(2) Humminbird fish finders (older basic models)

6 gallon fuel tank

 

1998 18ft Lowe Galvanized Tilt Trailer

 

Let me know what you guys think..  Thanks - Kevin

 

Oh and make me an offer on that 1998 Tacoma so I can get something to pull that bigger boat....  ha ha

I'm thinking no more than $1500 in my area, and that's if everything works.

Youre basically selling the motors and giving the boat away free.

 

I have a suggestion... Take the motors off, sell them, send the boat out with someone free of charge minus the trailer. Deck the trailer and use it to haul other stuff.

It really depends on your area. My area, aluminum boats are more of a demand than fiberglass. If there are lakes around that you run you can probably get $2,000 out of it. I would suggest trying to sell it in spring when people are thinking of wanting to use a boat. Winter is a tough time for selling boats.

$2,000??  Um no.  A 16-18ft glass boat around late 70's to early 80's with a 115hp outboard that is in good working order with a fully functioning motor is worth $2,000-$2,500.  If upgrades are added like moder fish finders, newer modern trolling motor, new batterys, carpet, good seats, etc. you can get up to $3,000-$3,500 but that's about it.  My boat is a 79 model and I paid a little over $2,000 for it and it was in really good shape for it's age.  Today, it's got a rebuilt outboard (last year), new carpet, deck extension, 65lb thrust Minn Kota TM, 3 new marine grade deep cycle batteries, Lowrance Elite 5DSI, Eagle 320, Lowrance x86(?) (basically 3 fish finders), anchor and winch, new tires on trailer, replaced bearings, upgraded to all LED lights, trailer boat buddies (retractable transom straps), etc.  I could go on and on....

 

My advice is to ask for around $1,000 and see what you can get.

 

If i were to sell mine today, if I asked more than $4,000.......people might laugh at me.  In my mind, it's easily worth over $4,000 but I doubt anyone would pay that.  Here is a photo of mine after I just completed the deck extension up front.  I removed the old seats and extended the fishing deck.  Now I have locking lid in the middle with a gas strut and smaller lids on the sides.  Tripled my storage capacity!
