Default Contender 23T 2008 Value?

Having a difficult time placing a value on a contender 2008 23T hull only, in above average condition. Comps seem to be all over the place or the prices have been deleted in the for sale threads. Any recent 23T buyer/sellers that could help out? Thanks!

What engines and any accessories like good electronics/stereo/trailer?

I looked at several last year before buying and most of the 2004-2006 boats were in the $55k-$65k range depending on the condition and options.

My fault- I didn’t see the “hull only” part. As said above, pics would help. Is there a console, t-top, steering, rigging, anything?

Or literally just a bare hull?

Should have been more specific, I’m actually looking to buy one. Was talking with the guy at the below link. Boat has engine and a trailer, but I can easily place a value on those. Only issue is the boat would need to be shipped from Baja, Mexico. I’m going another direction, logistics and buying a boat unseen is too much for me. Not even sure if he still has the boat haven’t talked with him in over a week.

If that boat was in Florida it would’ve been gone instantly. That’s a great deal. Even if you factor in a couple grand in transport or shipping it’s still a good deal honestly.

Its on the higher side IMO. 800 hours. $1 per mile to ship.

Yeah, exactly what I told the guy! Looks to be in really
good shape too. I estimated about $4k for shipping. Probably go for upper $50’s low $60’s in Florida? If someone is comfortable buying sight unseen it definitely would be a good deal.
