Found this one on Craigslist. Seems to be priced right. I'm still looking. Any thoughts? Thanks

Here's a 21 for $5900. seems cheap.

They are 2 very different boats.
The first link, to the boat on boattrader.com, is for an Outrage 20. The price is not unreasonable.
The second link looks to be to an older generation Outrage 21, which is a very different hull. With little else to go on, the price looks reasonable.
These are 2 very different hulls and so a direct pricing comparison is difficult.
Good luck with your search.

Thanks Dan, This Montauk looks like a good buy also although probibly underpowered. It would most likely be sold if it was on the coast.

Don't know why these links are not coming up where you can just click on them.

Check the shift shaft on that Yamaha. Early models had mild steel shift shafts prone to rust, later ones had stainless. Big cost if yours is the former. '89 should have full width splashwell, a desireable feature. The trailer sounds beat, figure on $1000+ to rehab if you do the work yourself. Overall price seems OK, but in this economy you may be able to do better. Make an offer based on hull condition and a motor value of about $1500. A new 200 will run $12k+.

The Outrage 20 looks nice at a good price but you might want to get someone to look at it before buying. The Outrage 21 is cheap but you can't get a good look with the picture provided.

I viewed both of these boats on our most recent trip to San Diego. The 20 needs a LOT more than a trailer tune up. The center console has been bastardized, the holds are a mess, this is a project boat with a functional motor that appears to have had minimal maintenance. The seller says he lives in Costa Rica and needs to unload the boat, but he has been saying that for several months now, per our in-laws, who viewed the boat before us.
The older 21 stopped posting photos with his add because he advertised it as "super super clean", which was a L-O-N-G stretch. His price has dropped from $9500 to $5900 quickly. Email correspondence from the seller (bajajesse) ranged from "rude to tweeker illiterate". Sorry to be so blunt.
There is also an 80's 22 for sale that we saw. It flipped in the surf, took on massive water and the motor and all electronics were done. He hung an ebay motor on it. It is a salvage title but he does not advertise it as such. We had mutual friends with the seller, who knew him well, and steered us away.
We are trying to position ourselves with the right Whalers on both coasts, as that is our semi-retirement plan.
Koaman, have you considered the cost of shipping a boat from SD? Are there not other options in HI?

Thanks for all the great info lizard. The cost to ship a Montauk here is $3500. and $4500 for the 22'. I keep looking here in the islands for one but have not come up with anything yet. Most of the boats here have been well used and it is hard to find something clean and original. I don't mind paying more for a nice original boat. I'm leaning towards a Montauk ( or Newtauk). Only looking at Whalers right now. I'm not in a big hurry and have a trip planned to CA in April. I have some other captain friends in CA who can survey for me if something comes up before. Aloha

Koaman, did you see the Outrage 22 for $14,000 OBO on craigslist Oahu?

If that boat was flipped in the surf.
I would guess the fuel tank right?
What other concerns would you guys have?

David- I am not a marine expert, but I would worry about water intrusion into the hull from the deck, at a minimum.
Like I said, we knew locals who knew/saw the boat and steered us away.
I understood that this happened at a surf break and that the boat was turtled for a while. Also, the seller does not advertise that this is a SALVAGE title, which can impact your ability to insure the boat.

Oh, I did'nt even think about the insurance part of it.
What attracted me to this boat was the fact that it already has a Honda and it would be a move up.
What i really want is a 22ft Guardian with Honda 225hp.

David- Don't you have an 18 Outrage that you repowered recently?
posted 02-06-2009 01:11 AM ET (US)
Yes i do but always looking to move up if possible. I just can't afford another repower anytime soon.

OK David- here's your rig-
