What is my boat worth?

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a 2001 Warrior V1898DC with a 2005 135 Optimax (brand new - 0 hours, 3 year warranty)including trailer through an online auction.

What is a boat like that worth?

NADA had the boat at about $11k, but now sure how to rate the motor. I expect around $10k since it's brand new. Any thoughts?

You can usually figure on about $100 or more per horsepower on a larger outboard.

Basically, your boat is worth whatever a person is willing to pay for it. wink

I'm trying to sell a 1996 Ford Explorer. Kelly Blue Bood says it's worth over $2500 in fair shape and I can't get $1900 for it in good shape. mad

Sorry, I know that's not the kind of answer you were looking for. I believe you are wondering how good a deal you got.

x-tackleman,

Send me a picture of the explorer you are trying to sell, one of my guides is looking for a used vehicle.

You got a good deal on that boat as long as everything is in good condition! You could probably turn around and sell it for 125% - 150% more than what you bought it, but I say hold on to that boat! It'll treat you extremely well for a number of years to come I'm sure.

Not sure of the fishing you do, but looks like the boat could use a bow mount and a sonar unit. Probably an extra $1500 - $2000 depending on what you get.

Did it come with a boat cover too?

Enjoy the new ride!

Nice looking rig and I agree with the others, a really good deal.

One tip on the Optimax, be sure to use outboard oil for DFI motors, and use Mercury Quickleen or SeaFoam or something similar in every (or almost every) tank of gas. Doing so will prevent carbon problems, which is important with that motor. I have a 175 Opti and really like it a lot.

If you need electronics for your boat I can probably help you out, the links are in my signature. Congrats again and good luck with the new boat.

Had the boat out on Watab for a bit today. It was a lot quieter than I thought it would be. Worked great - topped out at 40mph.

I have a 797 c2 sideimager going on the boat, and will be in need of a trolling motor soon. Even though I got a great deal, I tapped myself out, so I'll have to wait a bit on that.

I found what looked like the cover in one of the rod lockers - So I should be able to button it up pretty well.

Thanks for all the advice, as I plan on getting many years of enjoyment - I was always a tag-along up till now.

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
