My buddy is going to look at a 1998 Sammy Duvall on Wednesday.

1998 MASTERCRAFT Duval edition, 270hrs, Corvette engine w/upgraded stereo system, factory installed wake board rack w/trailer and 6000lb shorestation. $23,900.

He doesn't need the lift so the guy is knocking off a couple grand. It has been sitting in a pole barn for the last few years and the guy needs to move it. It sounds like a good deal if everything checks out. What are some things he should look for since it's been sitting for a while?

I am assuming this is a 190 Sammy and not a 205 Sammy. I think at $21,900 that is a little steep for a 1998 190. NADA says average retail is $16,610 for a base Sammy with no trailer. So add $2k for a trailer and $1k LT1. So I think somewhere south of $19k is what that boat is worth.

Thanks Brian - I will let him know. I will also have him bring the NADA printout with him to the transaction.
