SOLD - 1986 OUTRAGE 18, $8,500 in New Jersey

Postby footy3 » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:25 am

[For-sale:] a 1986 OUTRAGE 18 in nice shape with a 1997 Honda BF90 on a 1999 LOAD-RITE trailer in Bayville, New Jersey for [$8,500 as mentioned below-jimh].

[The boat is for sale on behalf of] my father-in-law, who for health reasons cannot use the boat anymore. The OUTRAGE 18 was not put in the water last season. The boat has always run flawlessly; it must be sold because it just cannot be used in the family any longer.

Included are:
--two IGLOO seat-coolers
--six life jackets
--a VHF
--a Hummingbird fishfinder
--a Garmin GPS
--assorted other gear, and
--a custom T-Top.

I can email a word document with pictures to interested buyers. Please email me at

mikefoulon@hotmail.com

with any questions.

I haven't gotten much of a response, I'm curious, am I way off base with the price? If anyone has any input it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The asking price is very reasonable.

The only concern I see potentially is a Honda BF90 is a bit low power. While they are rated for a minimum of 75-HP, a 90-HP may be a negative for some buyers. I have the same boat with a Honda BF130, and I wouldn't want any less horsepower with a four-stroke-power-cycle engine.

If you are patient you will likely get a sale. These OUTRAGE 18 boats can be hard to find and are a great size.

I’ll add a small comment to hopefully help. I was on a recent search that became nationwide for a 17 or 18 Outrage. The two problems I had were, of course, how to inspect from afar and how could I reasonably ship a boat to Texas. The price looks reasonable based on the prices I saw. If you acquired an independent inspection report by a reputable surveyor (few hundred dollars) it would go a long way to increasing the pool of buyers. It was hard for me to find one from a distance. At least as helpful, if you can pre-identify a shipper and general cost estimates that also would go a long way. Good luck.

Went to the boat today/ I drained the fuel tank. The fuel was old but the tank looked fine, and [the fuel] showed no signs of any rust or sediment when I removed the cover with the pickup tube to siphon out the fuel.

I replaced the fuel line from the tank to the filter and the fuel line and bulb from the filter to the engine along with the filter.

I put in 10-gallons of new gasoline, and [the engine] fired right up.

The old gasoline didn't look too bad, but it was a year-and-a-half old. Even though STABIL was added, I wasn't taking any chances.

Does anyone want 25-gallons of gasoline I took out of the boat?

If so, let me know. [The gasoline is] in Bayville, New Jersey.

I recently had to dispose of 5-gallons of non-ethanol gasoline due to a slow leak in a container. I poured it into our truck fuel tank. The truck's engine has shown no adverse effect.

Over the years of being a CW member I have noticed that most boats for sale here do not have the best audience as we already own a Whaler. That boat should sell pretty quickly in NJ this time of year. I would try the Asbury Park press and local craigslist. I sold my Donzi on powerboat.com or something similar to a guy 800 miles away. Good luck!

PS I just bought an 86 18' Friday.

Biggie - I was on vacation for a week and trying to stay off the computer, thanks for the response, I'm going to put it in the Salty Dog, you make a good point. If you don't mind my asking, what'd you pay for the one you just bought and what does it have for power? Trying to gauge the market....

Do not gauge a sale by what I buy. this was my 24th Whaler and I bottom feed ;)

86 w/2004 F115 Yamaha no trailer $5500. I agree that the 90 will hurt value a bit.

With trailer, T-Top, etc you got a good rig. I would start at $8995 if you want a quick sale.

I did reduce the price to $8500, I guess I ought to change the topic heading but can't find a way to do it. If anyone can help with that I'd appreciate it.

[As the creator of the thread you can change the TOPIC name; just edit the first post in the thread. I have changed the price as you requested—jimh.]

If you put that boat on Craig's List (South Jersey or Jersey Shore), it would sell in less than 3 days. I would have bought it but I recently picked up something similar. I wish I had seen this ad a week ago. Good luck.

Just put in a new steering cable, took the boat out for a quick test run, ran great yesterday. Still for sale!

Jimh - thanks for helping with the change of the title, I appreciate it. Now that I know how to do it hopefully the boat will sell and I won't have to.
