Default Boston Whaler value

I’ve been out of the small boat thing for a while and recently out of boating all together!
I miss it and have pondered a small trailerable boat. I got a lead on a 2003 15’ whaler. 60 HP Merc OB W/150 Hrs and trailer.
Mint condition....near perfect. No bottom paint, used in lake only!
Thoughts on value?

This seller is asking $13,600
Offered 12K & came back at $12,700
Presently waiting for a call from a buddy who is pretty well versed In Whalers.
He left me a VM saying that may not be the boat for me. Any know issues with this boat?

Check it in the water. You want to make sure it does not have water in the hull. Otherwise a great boat. I have a 1972 13'.

Look for a 1980 to 1990 17' Montauk that needs a repower. Find a nice hull and repower. You would be in it for about the same money and IMHO it's a better boat.

The 17 footer is far more versatile than the 15.

It’s a great little boat. Hold their value very well. As noted, the 17’ will give a bit more breathing room. We have a 13’ for the kids. The 15 is a bit larger but the 17 is a lot bigger. You can’t go wrong with either. Have it checked out and enjoy.

I have a 15 ft Dauntless. It is a good boat but gets really small with two people.

IMO the 15 is a sit and drive boat while the 17 is stand up friendly. I prefer to stand and drive but thats me...

After reading up and talking to friends I did pass on the boat. The biggest factor brought to my attention was the side helm with limited space. Given my size and space limitations, it was suggested a center helm Montauk would be a much better fit...
