is 1100 dollars BUC pricing is maybe worth twice that much,I understnad that these prices are without engines but asumming a twenty plus year old engines is worth 0 give or take...I cant find any 17 mantauk in good condtion anywhere close to that amount...why is nada so far off, dont they realize the value of these classic's? or have i not looked hard enough for a good price?

Hi, Drew.

NADA prices are calculated by a straight line depreciation formula and bear no relation to the real market.

If you find an '87 Montauk, even a bare hull for $1100 it will be junk.

Boat Trader Online and Ebay will give you a picture of real prices in the real market.

To find out how your insurance policy works you'll have to read your policy. They are all different.

It is not unusual to insure something at an agreed value. You say, "I want to insure this boat for $17,000" and they say, "OK, that cost this much..."
