I have another question the person who is selling me the boat is asking $19500 for it.
It is a 1988 Boston Whaler 20' with 2 1998 yamaha 150hp is this a fair price?
Oh and this model year boat came with any problems or defect?

jcporsche: You are the buyer, if you think is a fair price then it is. If you do not think it is fair then negotiate. Only the buyer can determine a fair price based on location, condition etc.

Requests for appraisals are not normally topics for the PERFORMANCE forum.

Have you read my article on buying older Whalers?

See:

In your proposal, the engines have a great deal of value.

Sorry to post a reply in the wrong arena, Jim, but I recall time was of the essence for JC.

I think that is a very reasonable price. I sold my 89 20' Outrage with its original 1989 Yamaha and new trailer for $16,900. The first person that saw it, bought it without dickering on the price.

If you haven't sea trialed the boat, I would do so before the purchase. The 20' hull is very trim sensitive and I would think twin 150s would be too much weight in the stern for a comfortable cruising speed.
