Does anyone have or know of any 11' Whalers for sale? Preferably I would like an older tiller steered model with no engine, but let me know if anything come up. Thanks.

I have a sweet 1987 sport that was a dingy on a yacht. Has weaver snap davits($400) and all new varnish, etc. 1987 Johnson 20hp(fresh water) that is a tiller but will be hooked up to steering and controls. $3000 as-is or $3450 completed(buffed, waxed, looking mint). Will take $800 less w/o engine. Galv trailer as well but not a great fit. Scratch another $100 if you don't that either. Will fit in pickup. Nick...Tampa area, FL

I looked for an 11’ all last summer to use as a tender and never found a nice one for less than 4K, I gave up and bought a real pile of junk for $200 and have been restoring it. I have spent another $400 for resin, glass, epoxy primer and LP paint, $100 for a new rub rail kit and $1000 for a nice 30 Johnson with controls and steering. The project is coming along great and much to my wife’s surprise it is going to look as good as a new one hanging on my davits. Be prepared to wait a while or drive a long way to find one. The 11’ is commonly used a tender and rarely replaced, usually just repowered.

I actually bought an 11' Whaler Sport last winter with a 15 horsepower Johnson for 2k and then I bought a newer Evinrude for the boat, and tried to do a motor swap. The controls weren't working right and the cable steering got screwed up, so I ended up selling everything because I didn't have the time and was frustrated. So after using the boat for a month last summer I've came to the conclusion that the best model for me is going to be a tiller steered tender. That is the model that my friend had when we were younger and I'vd wanted one ever since. I am just going to use it as a tender and for clamming.

I have a '95 Tender (factory Tender model). No bottom paint, hull in very good condition, with a servicable trailer. I'm planning on selling her this spring. $1,800 will take her now.
E-mail if interested. Location is in my profile.

I'm only 15mins from you with a 1975 11-sport powered early 90s 15hp merc in like- new condition on a galv trailer. unfortunatley shes the console model but the engine and controlls in good condition, newer steering cable won't need any attention for a long time. Hulls dry and light, far from perfect but not bad for 30 or so seasons of use.
I really havent tried and dont have to sell her but I havent really used her the last few years and would consider any offers, however I'm not intersted in selling the hull bare. Currentely tarped and burried in snow but your intersted let me know, being so close she might be worth a look.
