I just started looking for a new (used) fishing boat, and the first place I stopped think I found what looks like a pretty good deal. A 2003 180 Dauntless with aluminum single axle trailer (no brakes), Aluminum T-top (not a bimini), 120 HP Mercury Saltwater series motor (no dings on prop or leg)...the guy is asking $23k for it because that's what he owes. I haven't checked out the engine yet, but physical condition is pristine. NADA book prices are about $27k, without the T-Top. It didn't have any electronics onboard but I'm sure there is a fishfinder and gps to go along with it.

Check the engine, if it is a good one scoop that boat up. Your getting a good deal.

Sounds like a good deal. If you're going to be doing a lot of trailering, I'd check to be sure the trailer is up to the task. The Dauntless is a very heavy boat, and it requires a heavy duty trailer. I'm just guessing that since it's a single axle trailer, the trailer may be at or near its weight limit with the Dauntless.
