i've been lurking and looking for an MC for about 9 months now and this has been sitting the whole time. Like anything else, if its not selling, its overpriced. Can you guys help educate me why this boat has been passed over. I see the seats are dirty and the rear bench likely needs recovering. It appears to be missing the rear platform. The motor cover looks like the paint has flaked off (not sure of the significance of that).

What am I missing? What should this boat be valued at? Thanks.

Looks like the boat must Have been used in salt or at leAst stored in a salty area. Can't be sure though. U need to see in person.

I'd guess that bf ugly tower is bringing the value down a bunch! I'd pay more for one without the tower just to save having to repair the holes in the deck. That and a single axle trailer.
If it's not messed up, LTR, 200 hrs seems like a good deal.

the 99's also dont have the wrap around seating.. so thats going to bring the value down too.

Would be one heck of a dance floor without anything in the middle through... haha

Ive seen the boat in person. The inside needs to be completely re done. Its not a bad boat and the price is good.

I would have looked more into it, but it didnt meet 1 of the 3 requirements for a new boat. I needed a fold down tower.

Probably just passed over because it is definitely a project boat. But if the engine runs good the other stuff should not be to bad.

check electrical if you go see it in person.

went with an 06 x1 instead.
