What wouldbe a resonble price for a 1995 Outrage 17 hull (no motor or trailer) in good condition (except cutions need replacement). How would it compare to a Montauk of about the same age. Thank you.

I had a Montauk and now have a 1991 Outrage 17. See photos of both here:

To learn of the significant differences I suggest you do a search on "montauk" and "Outrage 17". The Montauk and Outrage 17 are not similar.

As for a price for a hull only...it depends on condition, electronics, bottom paint, etc. This is a very SOFT market. A boat without trailer and motor will be hard to move.

A general range in my opinion would be 5-7k. In this market, if the price is 7k, the boat would need to be perfect.

A Montauk of similar age and condition would be 4-6K.

Buying or selling?
Location?

Wow your market must not be as soft as it is down south. A motor and trailer is going to add from 8 grand to 12 grand to the price of the hull. So at 5 grand for the hull you have on the top side of 15 grand in the completed boat. 15 grand is a lot to put in a 17 anything right now. I saw a 1995 17 outrage on a trailer sell for 2500 bucks in South Carolina a couple of months ago. Of course I missed out on it by a couple of hours. Where is your boat located? And you did not say if you were selling or Think you have found a deal.

I was looking at a 17' Outrage II, blown Mercury Classic 115hp outboard, in very good shape with a trailer that needed work. The asking was $6,000, it was sold for $4,500.

Wayne -

I was factoring $1000 for a 1995 90hp and $500 for a trailer. A complete boat/trailer would go for 6500 - 8500.

I valued the Outrage higher than the Montauk since they are rare and have more features.

Your candidate sounds like a needle in a haystack. Too bad :~(

Here are the pictures I took of the boat, so you can compare the condition:

$4500 for that '98 Outrage 17 II?! Wow. Good deal if you ask me. As for the value of a fair condition classic '95 Outrage 17' with no motor or trailer: I'd think ~$4-5K. All I can say is I really enjoy my '95 Outrage 17' and I wouldn't sell it for anywhere near that even if the motor was shot. Great boat. The only big problem with the build of the '94-'95 hulls is the poor design of the self bailing scuppers which allow water into the hull.

Thank you for comments. I just purchased the Outrage 17 hull, on Long Island.

Chris, how do you deal with this problem (self bailing scuppers). Does it depend much on the weight on the transom or just waves get inside? I am planning to use new Yamaha 90 HP 2-stroke which is much lighter than 115 4-strokes. Roman

Congratulations on the boat.

I think your engine choice is good considering the weight. She will do fine with a 90hp. The 32 gallon under floor tank will give you a good deal of range.

While you wait for Chris to respond, as an FYI, I run with spashwell drains open but the deck and lower bilge drains all plugged and have a bilge pump in the sump.

Welcome to the Outrage 17 I club. Few members, but very content!

Congrats on the boat, they are a great hybrid between the larger 18' Outrage and the 17' Montauks. Has many of the advantages the larger Outrage has; more deck space, internal fuel tank, supersized console with electronics box on top, v-hull while maintaining many benefits of the Montauk; light, easy to trailer, easier to launch, needs less HP to get you going.

Good luck with the boat, as Casco Bay Outrage says, "welcome to the club!"

Move discussion of repairs to the REPAIRS/MODS discussion. MARKETPLACE is only for items for sale, wanted-to-buy, or appraisals of specific boats.
