I'm looking at a 2005 with a Johnson 150 2 stroke and a new trailer. I think it's a good deal, but am having trouble finding comparable boats for sale. Listed at 16500, do y'all think it's a good deal?

Which model? The 1910 or the 20. If its the 20' I'd say it's a decent deal, as they are rare to see used and seem a little more valuable than the 19. If its the 19, then it's about the same List price I saw on a few this winter. This also assumes decent condition, engine hours...
The 2 stroke will bring down the value some.

It's the 20 and it's in beautiful shape. Freshwater boat with no blemishes other than a ding on the cowling. I think it could be had for less. Trying to decide between the JB and a new 19 ft Maycraft for 21000.

The Jones Brothers 20 is a very versatile boat. I think that price is decent and reflects the less desirable power on the hull. That year Jones Brothers could be composite transom as they started with foam around 2004-2005. You could get the serial number and call Donnie to find out.
Make an offer and then re-power if you can get it for the right price.
I would take a Jones Brothers any day over a Maycraft for a hull. As soon as you drive it off the lot the Maycraft will be worth only a bit more than the asking price of the Jones (true of any new boat...).

Vegan - I paid about that a month ago for a 2002 1910LT in great shape -- had a 2002 2 stroke Yamaha with 295HRs - included trailer --- I paid a slight premium but as Alex pointed out you don't see them trade that often
I actually prefer the 1910 -- just my personal taste -- Good luck!!!

The two thing that bring the number down a little are the fact that its a 2 stroke and the fact that Donnie didn'nt go full composite until 2006. That makes the boat a little less desirable than a year newer model. That being said i I were selling that boat I would'nt let it go for less than 19K. Its a good deal if all is as it should be. Go buy it. You'll love the boat. I have owned a half dozen or more. Have tried many others but always come back to Jones Brothers

What did you pay, if you don't mind me asking
