View Full Version : 1997 205, what's it worth?

04-10-2014, 12:23 AM
I'll try to remember all the details but i'm considering buying a 97 205.

Boat belongs to my family and I haven't seen it in a couple years, but its only neen out a handful of times since then. Trying to gauge whether what they want for it is reasonable as I need to be in a position to move it quick if work goes south.

Freshwater boat
2 owner
Gel is in pretty good shape, no fade, a few nicks
Vinyl is good
Always kept inside
Step was redone quite a few years back but should be good

Closed cooling system
Monster tower
Wetbox marine tower box with 4 6x9's
Board racks
4 blade stainless prop
Sofa sac
Lounge sac
Pump for sac
Stereo is so-so, needs redone to be up to my standards
DHM double axle trailer with folding tongue and 18" wheels

Do you have any Pics?

I'd say $15.5-18k depending on color, maintenance, condition (probably the higher range due to the extras). Some will love the tower, others won't.

Yes I agree this time of year a 1996 Sammy Duvall just sold for $16,500

It's red, I or my dad always did the maintenance. I would say it's on the verge of being mint condition, especially considering the age. I'm not a huge fan of the tower myself, but I'm a wakeboarder, and thats about all that was out there when we installed it.

need pictures and pics of engine compartment - monster tower could get you closer to $18K

Here's a pic, it's an old one, and not very good, but you get the idea.

Everything engine wise is mint, i'll probably be picking it up next week. Then i'll go through the stereo, fresh fluids, and take her for a spin.
