  • This ad has popped up a few times last year it was 16k. Not sure he actually wants to sell it I see it on Craigslist all the time.

    @BoatyMcBoatFace I want to sell it. I had the boat sold in April and the engine let go on the test drive. Installed a new engine in June. So Cal is a tough market for a closed bow slalom boat.

    Looks clean... and with the new motor... If that boat were in WI/MN/MI, it would sell for $20k in a weekend given the current market for boats up here!

    I'm not sure about that? There's a local '94 205 here in eastern WI trying to get $20k and it's been for sale for a month now.

    Its hard to value boats with crate swaps. Most people sort of expect a boat to come with a working engine so you tend to eat about half the new engine cost sometimes more.

    That said I can see a 205 going for a lot. There still arent many boats out there that tick all those boxes.

    @BraceMaker I agree. I almost never see a reason why it has a brand new motor too. That just leaves questions in my mind, usually not positive ones.

    @BrennanKMN like what kind of questions?
  • skihackerskihacker Posts: 507 Crazy Baller
    Like how in the world did you pop a pretty bullet proof motor? It happens but usually takes something a little neglect-ish.

    @skihacker and I’d agree with that, but two other owners put 935 hours on it before I bought it. I found a few indicators of poor maintenance after the fact. I have taken excellent care if it since I bought it. Anything that wasn’t right has been repaired or replaced.

    Then be forth coming and honest if there is nothing to hide?

    If you said that in your ad, as a buyer, I might continue to read. If someone just said it is a new motor without any details I assume it was because of neglect.

    If you were looking at a car with 75,000 miles and it had a new engine put in, wouldn't you want to know why?

    @BrennanKMN that's also a great point, and I have been very forthcoming with any interested buyers and have answered all their questions honestly. Neglect is one issue, failure of an internal part is another. I bought a Chevy Tahoe last year with 150k miles. 2 months later I had to spend $4K because a valve lifter failed even though the CARFAX showed regular maintenance on the vehicle. I've only owned the boat 4 years and I think I put a lot of information in the ad of the repairs I have done since I've owned it and I have nothing to hide about the boat. It was even inspected by a Mastercraft dealer the week before the motor let go and they gave the boat a clean bill of health.
