1999 1950 Tyee Mag I/O

7 posts in this topic

What do you think? Buddy wants to buy one. We looked at it tonight, 2nd owner wants 18K give take for it. It has the standard dock rash with a few dents. Comes with newer 70 lb thrust Minn Kota, Lowrance 111CHD and another Eagle GPS combo up front. Trailer looks like a well worn Shorelander dual axle. Carpet is probably in about 60% of its shape. Comes with 99 15hp kicker. Seats are in great shape for a 99.

This will be his first boat, so I am excited for him to get it, however was wanting the experts (you) opinions of what you would expect to pay. His wife is excited, but apprehensive, naturally.

What is everyone's opinions on the I/O? Never owned one so I don't have a lot of input. It is a consignment at a dealership. Dealership offered to take family out for a test spin on the mighty Mo.

I know this isn't enough info to go on, but I would personally rate the "looks" of the boat at about a 7.0 out of 10.

My old man just picked up a 2001 1950 tyee magnum with ITS and a 15 hp 4 stroke kicker. Full top and snap on cover Lowrance graph. Excellent shape with very little scratches and very low hours on the motors for $16500. I might say it is a bit high priced??

It does seem like a bit much for that rig... that said though, I do think shmick_shmacky's dad got a pretty good deal on his rig.

Have you / has he done much comparison shopping? I'd look into that a little bit before you / he settles on a price.

Based off the description I would also say 18 sounds a tad high for that boat. Hard to tell without a some pics.

As a side note, the larger windshield lunds are a great all around family boat..very comfortable, IMO. Between a couple friends, family and myself we own five of them. (17 Fisherman, 18 Fisherman, 1950 Tyee Mag, 20 Fisherman, 20 Fisherman)

Good times!!

I agree. He (we) are looking at comparables and it seems high considering the shape it is in. If it was a little cleaner, I would have him jump on it.

I have a 1996 1850 Tyee I/O and have been happy with it. It's easy on the gas, has plenty of power. The engine has been reliable with only a fuel pump issue that was fixed under warranty. The asking price might be high. You could offer less and wait and see. There are lots of boats for sale.

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
