Question Selling my boat. What is the correct price?

Hey Guys,

I have my boat for sale on here and all over the internet. It is a 2004 X-2, and it has every bell and whistle possible. It is in awesome shape, but unfortunately the engine needs to be rebuilt. I have had a ton of inquiry about it as it seems I have priced it right at $17,500. Most of the people who are interested live far from me and are trying to haggle me on price because they have to pay for shipping which is not my problem.

Let me know what you think, and if I am pricing this well. Also if you are interested give me a call or PM me.

Thanks

If the boat really is 500hrs and great shape that sounds like a steal for anyone mechanically inclined.
For about 20k and a weekends work you could have one of MCs best hull/boat.
Even if someone paid to have the engine replaced they'd only be in it 25k or less.
You have it priced a little low Id say

The engine is taken apart at this point. It needs new manifolds, a few plugs are stuck, the block is rusted. For what it would cost you could prob put in a new crate motor.

I am just looking to get decent money and be out.

No it did not seize. Manifolds got a hole in them and i kept using it thru the end of the season. Engine just got beat up. It possibly could be rebuilt or be a good project for someone, I am just not mechanically inclined like that. I am concerned about pricing it right for the hull,trailer,cover, and bimini

Price looks good if that's the only problem...comps are at $34K from Boat Trader for ones that run and other dealers... You might be better off getting it fixed and selling. Too_tall on this forum had his fixed between 2-3K total....have to say - engine needing replacement at 500 implies poor care....may keep you from selling - prospects may think more is wrong....IMO.

Was it used in salt water? If so, is the bottom painted?

IMHO, you would be better off installing a new engine in it as a selling point and raise your price accordingly. Some people would expect a boat from the 80's or 90's to need a complete engine but not an '04.

Look in the photo on the trailer- It's bottom painted. Would that be hard to remove?
