This boat has really piqued my interest and I still keep looking at the ad since it was first posted 3 days ago.
Per the seller it’s been sitting for 30 years in covered storage. So presumably the hull is still solid.
Twin 3.0 mercruiser engines, these would be the biggest part of the gamble if I did buy it.
Best case scenario: The engines run great and just needed to be revived and the transmissions shift smoothly and minimal wiring issues found
Still needs (these are all very rough costs)
Shaft seals - 2x$300
Shaft bearings - 2x$100
New fuel lines - ~$100
Tires - 4x$100
Fluids/filters - ~$200
Miscellaneous - $500
Elbow grease - free
Total - purchase price + $2000
Worst case scenario: Engines and transmissions are junk
Rebuilt Engine - 2x$3000
Rebuilt transmission - 2X$1500
Total - purchase price + $2000 + $9000
I think it’s a $15k-$20k boat in good running condition. What’s the most you’d pay for the boat oppo?
I’m honestly thinking I’ll make a sub $1000 offer and see. At that price I could part it out and get my money back at the very least.
