    1987 22' Grady White Seafarer w 1999 Mercury 200HP DFI Outboard Price drop to $11K

    SOLD Took a bit of a price hit but sold her Monday. Given my illness (see my post in personal news), selling the boat made me real sad and caused me more anxiety and symptoms. This sucks to say the least, I'm hurting right now, so please pray for me my BDers.

    Look on the second page of this thread, a guy asked a similar question. My reply was if you look on grady white's website the hull is 3500 lbs https://www.boat.com/grady-white-seafarer-228-review. Add engine and trailer add another 1500-2000 lbs.
