I saw a 25 outrage cc with a cuddy cabin today. The hull was an 83 or 84 and the motor was a 94 250 yam. It did not have a trailer. The hull was in good shape but needs some major cleaning. They are asking 10,500 for the boat and motor or 7,500 boat only. Does this sound like a possible bargin ?

If the boat has no structural defects, and the engine is sound, I would buy it. Sounds like a very fair price to me.

Depends where you are. That's pretty good for Florida, but a steal in the Northwest. BTW, I'll buy it if you don't.

great deal if all it needs is cleaning; I'm looking for one of those too, so if you pass on it.............I'm on the east coast!

I went and looked at the boat a little better today, and it looks like "White Water" on page 17 of Cetteca, except it has an outboard and the regualar transom. Hull still looks pretty sound, and teak is not to bad just gray. Looks like a pretty rare boat.

Sounds like an excellent buy. I found a 1980 22' Revenge V for $5000 at Murrells Inlet. Has beem sitting on trailer unused for sometime. Hull looks OK but everything else is shot. Will need a lot of elbow grease, new trailer, motor and canvass.

I think its a great buy. I would grab it w/out the motor and re-power with an Optimax. I like that boat. A friend picked one up and just re-powered it. Could not ask for anything better!

Repower with a Merc? When it's got a Yamaha 250 that's only six year old for $3,000? I must take issue. Even a six year old Yamaha is better than a brand new Mercury, and throw in the price difference ($6,000-$7,000 less than a brand new Merc 250), it's a no brainer! Nothing personal against all you loyal Mercury lovers, but Yamaha makes a better engine.

Scalzo, you completely missed QBrennan's point in your interest of bashing American made outboards. For offshore boating, as 25's are designed for, a new Anybody's Engine is MUCH better than a used Anybody's Engine. Since one's personal safety could be at risk, I want to know where the engine's been, how it's been maintained, how much wear and tear it's had, and how it's been treated when I'm in the middle of the Great Lakes or 30 miles offshore on the Coast. Any engine off a beat Whaler is not one I would trust. The engine probably hasn't been treated any better than the boat, a reasonable assumption.

Like I said, nothing personal! BTW, thanks for interpreting QBrennan's point for me.
