For sale: 1987 Outrage 20’, 2005 Yamaha F150 and dual axel trailer

Photos are located at:

The starting asking price is $15,000 or best offer.

The hull is clean, well maintained and shows well. It is, however, 21 years old and has a variety of scratches, scuffs, and dings. I have within the last week cleaned and oiled all the teak accessories. In my opinion the hardware shows little corrosion considering that the boat spent most of its life in the salty environment of the Tampa area. It was in dry storage when I picked it up and has been trailer stored since. The goodies are listed below:

Garmin 176 GPS/Fishfinder with BlueChart chip, 2 years old

Standard Horizon VHF radio with antenna, 10-12 years old?

GoLight 400,000 candlepower remote control spotlight
replaces mast-light at helm, 6 months old

(3) batteries installed at the helm, (1) main motor + (2) supplying accessories, age varies

On board dual battery charger, 1 year old

Motorguide 24v, 82 lbs thrust bow mounted trolling motor on removable puck, 1 year old

Mills Canvas mooring cover- Jockey Red, 2 year old

Bow dodger and bimini top with zip-in windshield, made by a Tampa canvas shop- Ocean Blue, may be original to the boat?

Banana cushions, may be original to the boat?

Anchor with 100’ line, 2 year old

25’ bow line and (2) 15’ stern lines, 8 months old

Swimming ladder, 2 years old

Hall’s Nautical upholstery at helm mounted rod holders and cooler seat, 5 months old

(2) 94 qt Igloo coolers, 2 year old

Bow rail was removed to accommodate the trolling motor but is available, original to the boat

The motor is in good operating and cosmetic condition. It was installed in ’05 by the previous owner and had less than 10 hours when I took ownership May ’06. It now has 188 hours of use and will soon be due for service at 200 hours. It was last serviced in March ’07 at +/- 90 hours. I have installed a Stingray fin to reduce the tendency the hull had to porpoise and list while on plane. It works fabulously! Also I have installed a Skegguard to protect and replace a small portion of the skeg which I knocked off.

The trailer was new, purchased separately also in May ’06. It is a dual axel Performance brand trailer with (4) disk brakes. All the lights are LED and are working. The bunks were re-carpeted 2 months ago. Other than the journey from Pensacola to Tampa and back to Fairhope, AL, the trailer is towed less than one mile each from my house to the launch.

I will let the 60+ photos do more of the talking regarding the condition of the package.

If you have any question, email me at

Are you looking to go bigger? If so let me know I was thinking about downsizing from my 27 to a 20 to 25 outrage.

Nice Rig, Some of those pics look like Perdido Bay around Robinson's Island.

I couldn't go through with it! Auction ended early! Sorry for any inconvenience this caused anyone. I can't stand the thought of being Whaler-less!

I had bid on your boat.
Was wondering what happened?

It still had a day so left.
I really liked the boat.

I thought maybe you just sold it outright.

Wednesday I started gathering all the paper work and miscellaneous items that belong to the boat together in anticipation of the new owner. I started feeling very empty inside about the prospect of not having a boat. It would be a while before I could get back in.

Maintaining it, fishing and cruising from that boat are my only hobbies really. I would have missed the heck out of it and my wife could see that, so she encouraged me to hang on to it!

After sleeping on it, I decided she was right!

Hope you didn't get too far into figuring out how to get it to SD!

Sounds like you have a good wife!
I feel that way evey time i sell off a vehicle.
If I had Jay Lenos money and place to put them I would never sell anything!
We will be keeping the 1968 13' even when we get a bigger boat. 13' is good to pull behind a 66 vw bus!

Well Ted i can't say i blame you.

It looked like such a nice boat that i was talking my wife into it. Although i already have an 18.5ft Outrage. I like the extra storage on a 20-22ft more.

Plus the fact that it already has a 4stroke was a big plus to me.

I figured it would of cost me about 2000-2500.00 $ to have trucked here. Lots of extra money.
The nice thing about the 20ft is i was'nt going to have to get a different truck to tow it with( 4runner).
So in the mean time I'll just be cleaning up the boat i have and wait it out.
Iam hoping to get a 22 Guardian and no longer look to move up, or so i tell my Lovely Bride LOL.
