That foredeck looks to be pretty worn. Did you buy the motor new and repower it? If you're selling, you might consider parting out because the hull value is minimal.

Yeah I repowered got a deal on the motor. I'm deciding whether to sell or to take this to the house in Mexico. I want a little Klamath or something for Baja.

Hull doesn't look bad at all. It has worth if it's solid. I'd say the $ of the motor and a few grand.

Full transom just looking for rough estimation. I wouldn't be surprised if it's worth just the motor


Hard to determine a rough estimation with such little info. At face value I'm gonna assume a 30+ year old boat is gonna need a new gas tank and potential fiberglass work, wiring and electronics plus those hatch covers and the seal job around the console make me think there's more previous owner diy work I'll need to fix. Trailer?

With all that someone might be into it a good 3-7k if they do the work themselves making the hull itself valueless. Or you may have done all that already and it's sitting a new trailer giving the package greater value.

Depending on the time of year you sell, I'd assume value of the engine, minus some depriciation.

If it was me and I was taking it to Mexico, I would swap out the motor with an older less expensive 2-stroke.
