Default Boats without motors for sale

Anyone know of places to find a fairly late model boat WITHOUT a motor.

I have a buddy that repowered his boat a couple of years ago but is wanting a newer CC with head on console and some other things and got to thinking he could just find one without a motor or blown motor and put his new motor on the boat(has less than 100 hours on it)

I have seen one or two on THT over the years but nothing lately

We were thinking something about some of these insurance sales or stolen and recovered boats where they take the motor and electronics and leave the hull

how about Craigslist.org?

You can search locally (250 mile radius) on craigslist using www.searchtempest.com

Other than that, the salvage boat may be the other option. Downside is they are either a) recovered thefts, or b) sunk.

He is looking for something 21-22', he has a Honda 200-225 not sure but one of those two


I have told him to check with Famous Craft, their factory is right here in our town and I would be he could buy a new boat from them
without power but not sure how much it would save to purchase one without motor

Judge Yachts has at least one 27cc without power currently completed and for sale. Boat is brand new and on blow-out pricing. It is a little larger than he is looking for but the boat is 26'4", easily trailerable and powered with a single. I think the boat can be had for around 30k without power... Call the factory and confirm pricing.

As a full time guide, many of my anglers have similar questions when they're thinking about that first boat... My advice is to find the rig you want, two or three years old, with the make of motor you're wanting. Buy the rig, make sure the motor is up to snuff, then sell the motor and re-power with a new motor... You'll easily be able to sell a used motor in good condition for a bit more than half it's original purchase price if the customer is able to water test it on your hull... A new motor and your rig is ready to go.

That's what guides do, over and over again. I can't count the number of motors I've had on the back of my skiff. A quality hull is good for years and years with proper care and maintenance. The motor is the only thing that needs to be new or nearly so....
