Swim step and ladder
Fishing and comfort package
22 gallon fuel
Anchor, fenders, etc.

Boat appears to be in very good condition. Asking is $15k. What might be a fair offer?

Hi, CSG.

I sold a 2000 Montauk last summer.
Same engine, fewer hours.
Fishing and Comfort packages.
Rear seat, front deck cushion.
Bimini, painted trailer.

$15K is in the ballpark, but it is November. you should be able to get it for 12-13K.

Updated to mention the fuel tank is actually a 27 gallon Pate and there's a nice towing cover. As the Whaler's at a brokerage, there's commission involved. I made an offer of $13k which was rejected but I think there's a fair chance at $13.5 (which would be my top offer anyway).

The Bimini came from Whaler with the boat. Would that still be a Mills based on a '99 model?

15k doesn't sound bad for that boat if it is in nice shape. If the bimini is a Mills, it will have a label sewn into the underside of the top saying so. It could be, since my Dad's '99 Dauntless was set up with a Mills bimini, console cover and mooring cover.

It seems as though Whaler prices are all over the place depending on who's selling and where the boats are located. I've seen what appears to be the same boat selling for as much as five thousand dollars difference in recent searches. That's why I was asking about this one. It makes newbies like me a little leary of asking prices.

Bottom line on this deal: Great Lakes bimini not Mills, best I'll be able to do looks like $13,900. I may look at it after the weekend.

Sounds like a great deal to me.
