Let us know what you end up doing.

I have seen 93ís in terrible condition compared to this one with asking price of $12k.

As a reward for waterlogged's honest appraisal, he gets the tug for $10K. It's only fair.

I'm with waterlogged on the "value".... BUT.... value doesn't seem to matter much lately. If you don't need to sell, swing for the fence.... just don't be afraid to wait for the right buyer or work your way down.

I'm lined up with Mike on price versus value but also agree with Waterlogged on condition.

The boat is no cream puff. The tell tale signs are when you see trailer step pads pealing off or missing and scuffs on the bow. If you're posting pictures with these easily corrected flaws I would be suspicious of what else is lurking that is more serious. Based on what I can see of the interior your vinyl is probably getting brittle and the seams are probably about toast.

In normal years I'd be at $9K - $10K on a boat like this and bought a 97 in a bit better condition than this in 2018 for $9000. These days with covid pricing.... yeah you may be able to get $12K - $13K and who knows with the time of year added in you may get $15K. I will say though for anyone looking I've seen a couple 97 - 98 SNs with under 800 hours going for under $13K.

If I were selling this boat I'd clean it up better, fix the stupid stuff and put it up for $15K OBO and see what happens.

While viewing the pictures and reading the description I was formulating a value in my mind based on today's market. I did this before looking at what anyone else put just to be honest. I think in today's market, if you had that boat professionally detailed ($500) and fixed some of the small issues I could definitely see you getting 15-17K. On a normal year it's worth probably 12K tops but this is where we're at. I see late 90's early 2000's boat in decent shape going for over 30K. I purchased my dads boat for 25K last year and although I'd probably never sell it, it's tempting to think I might be able to get north of 40K for it. Good luck with whatever you decide!
