I'm very interested in closing a deal on a 1996 Boston Whaler Outrage 19 with a 1996 Yamaha 150 and an aluminum trailer. Boat has original leaning post, aftermarket (very nice) T-top, nice electronics and more. Overall condition is about a 7 [of ten] but with a little TLC I think I could bring this beauty back. What should I expect to pay in this market? What are your experiences with this model and year? Thanks in advance.

A little low on HP but low teens would be a nice deal.

I can't comment on the value or a good price. It seems lately pricing is more difficult because of the economy to predict.

I have the same boat, a limited made in 1999, the last year. I believe 96 was the first year. It was called a 19 Outrage for a few years and then a 20 Outrage for the last two years. Its the same boat.

Overall, a great boat. Some postive features I like are the fish boxs, foward bow locker and anchor locker. A big center console with doors on both sides and a lockable electronics box. Lots of storage.

It has a big gas tank and mine tends to be stern heavy when the gas tank is fuller and more than two people. Trim tabs correct that and are a worthwhile add on this boat.

Overall a big 19 footer. It seems like the power you have may be on the low side. A sea trial will let you know if you like it or not. I boat up in elevation around 4-7 thousand feet where horsepower is diminished so that paticular setup would struggle up here. I have a Yamaha 225 two stroke on mine and it works well.

It has a generous horsepower max rating of 225 which is unusual for Whaler for a 19-20ft boat.

Good luck

I have the same hull but with a dual console setup. I find the boat tends to porpoise some. It has a soft ride, but it bounces up and down quite a bit. I don't have trim tabs, but I think they'd take care of the problem. Mine is powered with a 200hp Yamaha 2 stroke and it's a fast boat. With just me and light on fuel, mid-upper 50's are attainable. I've outrun a friend in a 20 foot Cobalt with a 260hp Mercury sterndrive. The dealer who originally rigged the boat said he got it to 60mph when testing it out. If you are at sea level and you don't often go out with full fuel and 9 people, the 150 should be fine.

Other advantages of the boat are its' massive fuel tank and non euro transom. Overall we've been very happy with our 20 Dauntless.

I have the same boat with a T-top and a 200 Merc. It runs 50 mph turning a 19P prop 5600rpms. I don't have trim tabs but it could use them. I used to have a 150 Merc that would push the boat about 43 mph turning a 17P 5400 rpms. A 150 will be fine for that boat, however the boat is rated for a 225, which is rarely seen. The value depends on condition, location etc... Anywhere from 10 g's to high teens.

Thanks for the info. I picked up the boat today and am very excited about getting it out on the water. Got lot's of cleaning and buffing but she's a diamond in the rough!
