One major factor to remember when buying any old boat today with old outboards. RE POWER. In today's market with rigging that can cost 35-50K. And you still have not done dick to the boat. Now throw in a hull that's 30 years old and you may want to restore. If your going to pay someone to do it and do it right another 30-40K maybe more. Or your going to buy as is, use as is and maybe later invest in the 35-50K re-power job. Personally I would rather have a new one built for what your going to invest and loose on a 30 years hull. Maybe if your getting the deal for 10K or less. Okay Maybe. As far as I'm concern those motors on there would not even count.
How old are they anyway, there not 1988 also??

I talked to Whitewater and he said itís not much to replacing deck and that he has done it before. Motors are 2001 and they are definitely worth something. They are bulletproof and many still run them instead of spending the big amount to repower. This hull is fast and efficient making the repower cost harder for me to put up. I donít spend that much more than buddies on a tuna trip and they all have a huge loan payment every month for the motors or lot more expensive boat. But yea boat has some age but well built hull like Whitewater has no experation date. Before buying this boat I wanted a 30+ for my long offshore runs and even after a repower on this hull I would still be coming in wayy cheaper than most options in a decent hull.

I would take that to the bank and run!

I was going to say $20K. Engines only worth $4-5K.

I would pay about $20-25k as it sits. While the motors are worth something, it isn't very much maybe $1500 - $2000 each. To the right guy who could do a lot of the work himself buying in around 25, drop a pair of used 4 strokes for 15ish and another 15 in deck replacement and upgrades you could have a really nice ride for around 50.

They are nice, but it is still a 30 year old boat with 17 year old motors using out dated tech. And, it needs the deck replaced. You obviously love it so you should probably keep it because you will not get for it what you think it is worth. Having rebuilt a boat that was 14 years newer than that one and knowing all the work that goes into it, I would pay maybe $20k and that is a maybe. Because, I would not run those motors at all. So I am out $30k or so to repower. Does it have a good trailer? Probably cost at least $2k+ to have deck and all hatches redone. When the deck is up, you might as well change the fuel tanks out. If it were me, I would fix the deck and keep it. You will not find a replacement cheap.

if I was trading for it I would want to give $17,493.87 and a Best Buy gift card with $12.53 left on it and I would buy you lunch under $11.45

if I was trading again it I would hope to get $27,563.82 and a Best Buy gift card with $56.31 on it and a lunch that cost $18.97....I would be pretty happy with $22,877,99 and a Best Buy gift card with $22.42 on it and lunch at Subway

unfortunately while the engines do have value the "unknown" aspect and the age is a factor and more so the real factor is the floor needing the work......someone that can afford to buy the boat, get the floor fixed (and the fuel tank and other small items that you would fix while doing the floor) can afford to buy a boat that does not need near as much work and probably does not want the hassle of having to buy a boat at near full "pre repair" value while needing to be out that cash and the repair cash while waiting it to be repaired and to then end up with a boat they paid exactly what it would sell for....while being without the use of the boat while it was being repaired and having that money tied up in a boat they are not using.....then there is the aspect of "what if it is more than just the floor" and the transom has some issue at the base of it and some stringers have issues

and someone that can do the work themselves has a lot of boats that need work to choose from that are much cheaper......because while they need a lot more work they are at the point where it is difficult to pay anyone to do the work they need and even break even, but you might do a bit better than break even if you can do most or all of the work yourself

there is just no middle ground on boats where people say "well fixed it is worth $40,000 and it needs $5,000 max so I will give you $34,000 for it".......there is a ground of "well fixed it MIGHT be worth $40,000 and it needs $5,000 that I know of so I will give you $24,500 for it and that is after offering $19,000"

Sounds like you're proud of what you overpaid for and no matter how much money you put in it it will never be worth what you think it is.

I had a hard time selling a pair of same year, same model motors, and finally got $6k for them with the rigging included.

Hull is a nice hull but people don't like wood, especially when it is already showing signs of going. Those interested in the project will be planning for stringers, transom, and fuel tanks, and pricing in wiring at the same time.

If you can get $35,000 for it, that would be remarkable. I barely paid more than that 8 months ago for a 1991 31 Jupiter with the same power, no wood in the build, and no major work needed.

Just curious fellas, all the info I stated is from what Iíve seen. Like guy said before he got 6k for his motors so I could at least shop for 5k. Thatís not nothing. Iíve never yet seen these motors go for a grand a piece. Tht search and most sell for 5-7k.
Yes 4 year old trailer included.
And who said I over paid for it?!
I paid under 2k.
No need to get all bent out of shape, Thanks for the real world opinions those of you.
I know the issues with age, wood, and motors. Just was curious of value in her current condition. No hurry to sell and I might never sell.

You got an amazing deal!!! The thing that worries me is the wood in it. I would be worried what I would find under the floor. If I was talented enough with fiberglass, it would be an awesome project. If you like the motors, pull up the floor amd fix the boat.

Yea Iím not in the hole at all and paying a little more on fuel than buddies are for tuna trips and not having a big loan payment for repower or 100k boat is not bad at all. Like I said Iím not looking to sell and if I do there would be no reason to keep the motors. But I have messaged a good 5-8 people to last sell their ox66 and none have sold under 5,500 for a pair.
I was just wondering what I was working with on value as a whole. She holds more gear, weight, and people with so much fishing space that it will be hard to part with.
But when you come across a deal like that you take it.

Best way to find out what it's worth is to put it on the market and see what they offers come in at. Someone that is handy might pay more than someone that needs to drop it off at a shop and spend 80K for new motors, new deck, paint, new top, leaning post, electronics, etc... at that point I would do what cuda said and just buy a new one or 1-2 year old one. But it sounds like you got a smoking deal and you like the boat the way it is. So use it till it dies and enjoy the ride!

Pipo is right, who knows what its worth unless you try. But the Used boat market is a relentless one. Your dealing with every Dump F@%K in the world trying to figure out what a boat is. Run it, Ride it, dump it. But if you Plan on keeping it and investing money into it, then you may want to do some serious homework. Again, Knock yourself out.
