Whats it worth?

7 posts in this topic

My brother has recently bought a 1967 Larson 16' in fair condition with a Mercury 1000 (100 hp) that runs good. It also has a 36lb Minnkota trolling motor. He plans on using it this summer and then maybe selling it. He would just like to get a rough idea as to what he could ask for it. He originally got a steal and is going to try to make a profit after cleaning it up and getting everything working properly. I don't have any pics to post so nobody needs to ask. Any help would be grealty appriciated.

With that old of a boat it's all about who you can find to buy it - most people in the general public won't be that interested in purchasing it probably, so you would almost need to find a collector.

I'm guessing the guy that got rid of it was the one that got the "steal". grin

Like marine_man said, it's tough to find a buyer for that boat. Believe it or not, you could probably pull the motor off and sell it for more that the whole package.

I was going to write that I'd offer "17.00 or a pair of choppers", but I'm not sure how many people listen to KQRS bits...

I agree with the other, probably not much. The motor is worth more I'm sure. I wouldn't try to sell in the fall, hard to get rid of them at a good price then. I would wait till early spring. If you fix it up real nice you could turn a profit, but I don't know what you paid for it. Plus what's you time and material worth?

You see a lot of boats like that on craigs list for cheap sometimes free or free with buying the trailer. Especially as it gets closer to winter. But if you find the right person in the spring or early summer you might be able to get something for it.

Dtro, good stuff, I was thinking that same thing...(the steal thing, not the motor thing)

He plans on selling it in the spring or early summer and it is structurally good, just very dirty so materials will be cheap. I thought about just selling the motor too and we do have a place that the boat can just sit avter that so we will see what happens I guess. Thanks for your help.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
