I have been surfing this site for about two weeks now. I am looking to sell my 2000 14' Dauntless. I am having a hard time pricing it. Looking on vaious websites, they sell retail between 10k-14k asking price. Its a fantastic little boat. I have put about 70+ hours on it. It comes with:
Life Jackets
4 white bumpers
all upolstry and pads in great to excellnt shape
Bimini top
hummingbird fish finder
bow rails
loadrite trailer

Now for the bad part. It has a blown 50 hp Merc. engine. After checking the prices of repowering it, I'm having a hard time figuring what to do. What do you folks think? A new engine is $3800-$4500. There is also the difference of what a dealer asks, and what they get. What do you think is a good asking price for this boat?

I would say you are in the heat of bidding season. Stick it on e-bay and let it ride. I highly doubt you will see much north of $5k though.

As a D14 owner I think the 10K to 12K price would be right with a 75 HP motor in great shape. Most owners would find a 50 hp motor undersized for the 1000# hull. Price for new motor is around $5K, you can do the math.

Thanks for your replys. I was thinking that around 4k would be a good listing price. On the 50 hp, I found it quite powerfull enough. With a half tank and two people it would cruise in the 24mph range. Flat out you could see the 30's.

Yep, as a 14 D owner (9 5) 10k about right.
I just upgraded from a 25 to 50 (max as per mfg) and she runs out fine. a 75 would maker squirly

backroadswhistler,
Are you sure you are talking about a 14" Dauntless? they were only made in 1999 and 2000. The max Hp rating on the nameplate is 75 Hp.

The 2000 I have has a max rating of 75 with a min of 40. I would like to see a 75 on it. It would go like stink. Handle 3 adults a little less sluggishly.

Sounds like you are correct, my mistake.
My 13'6" max hp is 50 cheers
