I did not know how to adjust the price in the title of my old ad, so I am just making a new one. Sorry to those that are tired of reading it; I hope they just have the good sense to not open it.
Low hours (70)
Condition is Mint, or as new.
She has just been serviced by my dealer, is out of the water and shrink-wrapped. The engine has an extended warranty, and is transferable. There is no trailer.
She MSRP's at about $62kish, although I bought her for less obviously. I am offering her for sale for $35!!!!!!
I own her outright with no loan, and am selling for my own personal reasons that have nothing to do with the boat. I encourage you to email me if you are seriously interested, and I will give further details and pictures. The buyer of this boat will be someone who is interested in this very versatile and well balanced model, and can't buy one new (discontinued) save for a few leftovers around, and would not mind buying one in as-new condition for substantially less. You can email me at whalersal at aol dot com.
NADA, which is usually low for Whalers, prices my boat with a 150 hp Verado (mine has a 175) and without the all-weather curtain set as follows:
TOTAL PRICE $36,035
$35,000. NADA values the boat higher than here, and they notoriously undervalue Whalers. I am also including conservatively about $1,000 worth of fishing poles and tackle.

Thats a steal
Are you still throwing in a weeks free rental at your beach home : )

Bump for a real nice boat. At that price, thats overly generous to include the fishing gear.

Can you tell me where this boat is located?

The boat is in New Jersey. Bob

Yes the boat is in Brielle, NJ. It is cleaned now, and the shrink wrap is off. Interest is perking up; I knoe one guy just looked at it a few times in the last few days. Great, well rounded, and pristine, as new boat. If I put her in the water, I keep her for the season, and she goes back up for sale in early fall. It just is.
The boat is for sale, as I am in the process of trying to sell the house which the boat gets docked at. I just rented out the house for all of August. If the economy is better, and my work is better, by September, I will want to try to keep both of these "toys". If I can raise cash by selling the boat now, I'll do that too.
Many people have emailed me to ask me why I am selling the boat, and I thought I would clear it up here. I love the boat. I love the house. If things remain cruddy, I sell them; no shame and no regrets. If I win the lottery, I keep 'em!

Just a shameless plug. I have a 2005 205 Eastport (same boat). I love mine. It really is a versatile hull that feels and rides like a larger boat. I have a 150 Optimax and that motor moves the boat along very nicely. She is VERY trailerable and Very economical.

Thanks for the plug, Ed. I am going away for a few days. I'll check my whalersal aol account in case I get lucky. Looks like she gets splashed April 12th, for my use, and then I will try again by putting her back up for sale in late July.

Congratulation on your sale Sal.

Thanks Ritzy. Nice couple bought her too. I feel good about them. Bittersweet about the sale though.

She will live in your memory;
And then again later on;
Perhaps,You can pick the same model for a bit less then you sold yours for.
So is life...

Good news, Sal, especially in this economy. Beautiful boat. What's next?
posted 04-12-2009 07:27 AM ET (US)
Next is nada, Tony. Or perhaps an old montauk. How are you doing?
posted 04-12-2009 02:20 PM ET (US)
Bitterwsweet I'm sure Sal, Congrats though!!
posted 04-12-2009 04:38 PM ET (US)
Congratulations on the sale. Hopefully, when the time is right, there will be another Whaler in your future.

Not to worry Sal. The good times will return to the financial services industry, but the boating marketplace will lag about a year behind. You'll have ample opportunity to get your dream boat at a great price

I'm doin' fine, Sal, and thanks for asking. Small is beautiful, old bud, take it from me. I'm still grieving over my sale of 'Cetaceous' Outrage 18 several years ago, but I'm having a ball with my relatively inexpensive classic Sport 15 center console.
A fine old Montauk with decent power--still the ultimate Whaler IMO. The rest, classic and post-classic, are great, but grab a decent Montauk for seven or eight grand and ENJOY. Whatever happens, please don't leave us...we dearly need your wit, humor and good sense.

I am glad your boat is sold, Sal, congratulations! I am sure this is a load off your mind. If you don't mind sharing, what do you think sold your boat (i.e. any advice for other sellers)? How did the buyers find your boat? Thanks,
