I don't know anything about Radon boats but to me $35K for a 17' seems outrageously priced. But then again, maybe somebody will buy it.
You are right, you nothing about radons. They are great boats, but due to cult like following they generally sell for a lot more than you think they should. Even with a new trailer and a low hour motor I think he is a little optimistic on the price though.

It is a supply and demand thing also! Not many used smaller Radon/Anderson/Davis boats come up for sale.

Maybe have to wait for the Fed to raise interest rates, then it will drop to $28k.

I think that boat is a 16' with a 17' LOA. It is not a real 17x8', that is for sure.
Yeah that one on CL is def not a 17x8. I too think it's a 16 stretched out to 17.

If I hear of any off market I'll let you know Ratboy, as I'm sure you're checking CL and the usual sites frequently.

i saw a post about a radon 15 that will be going up for sale soon. I am doing the 1st sea trial on my 15 this week and will probably have it up for sale in the next year.

Was 30k two weeks ago. Price fluctuations must parallel the DOW.
Probably hammered by people offering 20K so he figured he would raise the price a bit,lol.

Bahia number 3? Nice!

With the lack of personal water crafts out there, you’d think someone would be making more of these again. Harold ever mention where the mold went?

Ron Radon Jr can make you a new one up in Oregon. Per my inquiry with him a year or two ago, the boat OAL is now 16'6" and has slightly higher gunnels. Available with/without a cuddy. First come first serve - I bet the wait time is pretty long at this point. Others here may be able to provide more details.

I thought I heard he was retiring and was only going to finish the boats he already had on order.

I wound up selling the first one made by Harold, sold the second that was a hull and cap finished by un known. Looking for third and final 16 Bahia hull, I was going to buy a nice 17 whaler but the guy decided not to sell yet.

I don't remember where Harold said the mould was but he did say the cost of the build for the 16 was not enough margin to make it worth while to build so the got rid of it???

There is one stored by me that never moves. If I ever see the owner down there, I'll see if he wants to get out of it.

Not a Radon but the Outrage posted here should hold you over for awhile.

Did you sell that 18 Parker ?. Always though that would be a good boat to put a Radon style house on. I do miss my little 15 Radon. Good luck bud. Kirk
