I come to all of you for some advice and comments on a boat I am looking at. Here she is in a nutshell:
1988 22' Outrage Center Console
Price is $20K out the door. Boat is an 7-8 out of 10.
Thanks guys. Let's hear it good or bad !

Remove a low mounted thur hull and check the foam core for water-The most important step to do first. See my remarks below on the 15'Rage link below. I have 2 14' hulls both made in 1992(1 in Rockland,the other in Edgewater)with over 300Lbs of water in the better looking hull,and can't explain how the water got in.

That sounds like a really nice boat. I think a clean 22 with recent Yam power, a T-top and Whaler drive would go for more where I live (West Coast).

Even with the extra storage, I stayed away from the super console because of the deck space it took up. I was not looking for a T-top but depending on its installation, it may take up even more room. Something to think about and depends on your priorities.

Also for what it is worth:

I think that is a very fair price. Here on the Great Lakes similar boats go for about 3-5k more.

John- Sounds like a stand up boat. 20K, who knows- depends on whether or not the Yam lasts. If you get 2-3 yrs the price is fine. If it takes a dump (head, lower unit, electrical etc-major) then price is juuuuuust ok. .03 David

'88 22 with a Whaler Drive, newer power and with the 250, plenty of it. Sounds like a very good deal. Go for it!

sea trialed a '85 OR 22' w/o whaler drive and '98 yam 250 and flew at 56 mph on gps. ride was great - condition wasn't - found and got a '85 22' in 9+ condition with original 235 johnson ( 150 total hours each ) for 12k, and will install ttop. the yammy 22' had super console with large ttop and seemed balanced out pretty well with no space issues. sounds like you've found a keeper, although tuna recommends the imperative check.
selling prices in carolina thru florida topped out beneath 20k.

The asking price of the 22 Outrage you described seems to be ok. I have a 1986 - 22 Outrage Cuddy (see Cetecea Page 48 for details) that was appraised at $26,000 about 2 years ago. I'm would guess that my boat would be worth about $2,000 more that the one your planning on purchasing in that it is a cuddy and has many options.
Good luck on your purchase.

20k for a 7/8? I think your right on the line on price. 7/8 can mean different things. Are the minus points cosmetic, electrical or structural? Can you fix whatever it is on your own or does it require the services of a pro? Is the compression and lower unit, etc. confirmed by a mechanic? If these and some other basic questions are answered to your satisfaction, then it's an o.k. price. Not great, not bad.
As far as the boat in general, it's a wave killer. You'll be sporting about in one helluva sea-worthy vessel. Other than the big 25, you're going to love the places you go when everyone else stays home.

I have a 1988 22 outrage T Top and electronics box small console 77 gal tank. 250 Yamaha 1994 complete rebuild 2002. I would want at least 25,000 if I could part with it. Best cc boat around for trailer. Flat floor and all fishing space. I replaced all lights,wire,hoses,cables,fuse holders,gauges etc.
installed hydraulic steering, added a doelfoil and a jackplate. I'm in love with the boat!!!!!
