Listing this for sale with more details to follow:

Year: 1989
Model: 25' Outrage / Cuddy / Whaler Drive
Power: Twin 150hp. Johnson's
Hours:.~ 850 hours Port / 1200 Starboard

Trailer: Venture 8600lb, triple axle. It has no registration and brakes, so being sold as a yard trailer. You add brakes and register as a homemade trailer with ease. Replacement is $7000.

This is extremely rare and hence, sought after model hull.

I bought last year, and have 3 other boats, so I'm spread too thin and simply cannot enjoy this enough. My other boats are a 28' Albin, 15' Whaler and 13' Whaler.

I've been working on the boat and fixing minor things since last year, but she's a great specimen of this model. IMHO, she's in excellent shape. I'm currently fixing a key switch on the Starboard motor which has been intermittant. Just needs a bit of minor TLC, and you will have an amazing Classic.

She can be used as is, or re-powered to bring her to prime condition.

Price: $17900.00

Located in Madison, CT

John,

That is a very nice example of a classic 25. It seems like you have it reasonably priced, too. I would think it would sell pretty quickly.

Heck, if it was a few thousand miles closer to me, I would think seriously about it.

Wow, that's a really nice looking 25...once I get moved to an ocean venue with dock....next 12 months, current plan, I'd like to have a 25...small enough to trailer, and big enough to handle any rough water I should ever encounter.

Thanks for sharing. The 25 is an awesome whaler.

Sold for $11800

I was amazed at the lack of interest for this incredible boat.

I think classic Whalers have lost some interest in the boating world.

The PARTS off that classic are worth more than $11,800! No paperwork on the trailer probably did not help the sale.
Did you only market the boat here and on Craigslist?

I'm sorry to hear the selling price is so much lower than the original asking price. That is always dissappointing and I truly sympathize with John.

I've been watching for the right Outrage 22 for many months. As a shopper, I've read a lot about the pros and cons of both the Outrage Cuddy and Whaler drive, and have come to the conclusion that these two features have a smaller market than notched transom, open bow Outrage models. Every 22 or 25 Outrage Cuddy I've seen for sale in the past year was on the market a long yime.

Despite the many obvious advantages the cuddy offers, these seem to appeal to a smaller audience as similar functionality can be had with a Mills forward shelter that need not take up deck space when not needed.

Whaler Drive adds significant cost in every situation, from trailer to power to moorage. I think this factor drives resale down. I was shocked to read the sale price. I immediately thought, "Wow, thats low enough to offset the addtional $ that boat will require over a notched transom model"

I think interest in classic Whalers is still strong, but perhaps its becoming more model specific. Montauks seem to keep going up in value, indicating a stronger interest overall, likely for the same reasons they sold like hot cakes when they were new.

I'm amazed at the low price as well, and the boat appears to be in nice condition. Although those motors probably have plenty of life left in them, the market seems to heavily discount anything that doesn't have late model 4- strokes on it. Unfortunately, the ridiculous prices for big V6 outboard motors make a repower a very daunting endeavor, and I think most folks that can afford to buy a new pair of V6 outboards are probably shopping for a new boat. There seems to be a real fear of simple, reliable, light weight 2-stroke outboards that just a few years ago were the norm. This is good for Whaler enthusiasts buying a classic, but it really sucks if you are trying to sell one. The near giveaway pricing on this nice 25, and the 23 Walkaround also posted on this forum seem to reflect this trend, which is significantly amplified on twin engine models.
