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.
Verado 175 Generation 1, which runs flawlessly.
Smartcraft DTS.
Many options, including full cushioning, swim ladder/platform, livewell, bimini top, full canvas enclosure for year round fishing, trim tabs, SH Quest DSC VHF, Garmin 540 Combination Sonar and Chartplotter. 8ft ratchet-mounted antenna.

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:
Base Price $30,380
Bimini Top $460
Salon Enclosures $1,110
GPS $1,950
VHF - Fixed Mount $430
Stereo/cd/sat $490
Bait Tank - 22 Gallon $165
Porta Potti $215
Propeller / Stainless Steel $455
Swim Step w/Fold Down Ladder $380


I am selling for $35,000, and my boat has a more powerful motor, and a several thousand dollar curtain set. A complete livewell. In addition I am including tons of goodies, and the new buyer can know that the boat was babied and never fished hard, as the owner is so amazingly incompetent at fishing.

$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.

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

Thanks RMS.

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.

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?


Sal A posted 04-12-2009 07:27 AM ET (US)     Profile for Sal A  Send Email to Sal A     
Next is nada, Tony. Or perhaps an old montauk. How are you doing?

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,

Robert V
