I would appreciate feedback from any owners of the 110 Tender: likes, dislikes, power choice you have, type of water you boat in, etc.
My hand is on the trigger, and my eye is squinting like Clint.

Thought you were looking for a classic? If you are interested in a nice classic sport I would be a little flexible on the price I gave you in the market place since for some unknown reason I bought a 15' ss ltd from another forum member Monday and definitely have too many boats (3 now and two coming end of summer).
For what it's worth, I bought the classic last year not only because I liked the looks better, but it out performs the newer ones. We went on vacation to the Bahamas last summer with another Sedan Bridge owner from my cruising forum who had the newer 110 tender (with a 4 stroke 30hp) and the classic (30hp 2 stroke) was much faster and easier to handle too.

I would be using such a boat to put-put around canals and northern Barnegat Bay estuaries, and such. It would be a boat that could be rowed, and used by 11 and 13 year old boys to lern about the water.
I like classic 13's. The six that I looked at all had a lot of hair on them (stolen, title issues, water damage), or would cost more with repowering than a brand new 110 Tender.

The new leftover 110 Tender I am looking at prices out on Whaler.com for $7,000, and I would be getting her for $5,500.

Thw good condition classic 13's are 4,000, and I would need to spend another $2,000 on a repower to make it legal (9.9hp is maximum for kids under 16).

Sal would 4k get you one with a running motor in your area? If so, it could be sold or held on to and then just find a used 9.9. I just saw a 2004 merc 9.9 for $800, looked like new (just about picked it up as a spare, but I was just about to take my wife to Hawaii and she would not have been happy).
Honestly I think the 110 is a neat little boat especially with the sport console

a leftover 110 sport at the Whaler dealer here in Orlando is $11k. I know the tender sells for a little less, but 50%? No way, that is a great price (what size engine 25 or 30?) and you can resell the boat here for about that in a year or two, don't let it get away!

Are you sure? We purchased a left over 130 Sport w/40 HP 4 Stroke, Trailer, comfort package, swim platform, bow rail, Sun Top and cover for $10,600.

OOps, That is a 130 with aluminum (not galvanized) trailer, My bad, I apologize, they want $7,500 for the 110 with a 25hp and $6,800 with a 15 hp. I didn't find out what equipment (bimini, etc) they have. If you want a phone number let me know.

Thanks for all the feedback guys. This boat will have oars, and a clamp on 9.9 Merc 4 stroke. My boys are excited. Wait, who am I kidding? I can't wait myself!
Tight lines all.

Last year I picked up a 1993 110 Tender (great shape)with 1994 9.9HP 4 stroke Yamaha. It came on a nice Galvinized Pacifica trailer (fish finder & other odds/ends, too). I found it on Craig's List (San Diego) for $3500. It took a bit of patience & checking.
The 9.9 could plane with one person (adult), more than that it couldn't. I've added 5/4 mahogany front seat, a starboard steering console & a 25 HP Yamaha 4 Stroke....it's a blast!! I found better prices on the 13', but can't accomodate one on my flybridge. You also mentioned rowing, and the 13' appears to be a bit heavy for that.
I must say, this site has provided a wealth of info, thanks to those who moderate.
Good luck & have fun
