I just want to see how prices stack up from different areas. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, A 2001 18 Dauntless with 135 Opti and Galvanized trailer is $29,995. 2001 13 Sport is $8999 w/25 4 stroke, $10,495 w/40 4-stroke. a 2001 28 Conquest goes for $99,995. I figure since we're still paying about $1.35 for regular unleaded, these prices are a tad high? A Yamaha 225 4-stroke here prices at $15,300 and a F200 for $14,400.

The Ft. Lauderdale Marina advertises the 13' Sport with 25 Merc and trailer for $7995. It's set up on the dock, right across from Pier 66, an extremely popular megayacht destination. Pretty good marketing if you ask me.

If I am correct the price is the same for your choice of a Mercury
or 40-HP 2-stroke.
It looks like the farther South you go the cheaper the price.

FISHNFF, you need to find a different gas
station. I paid $1.37 for Shell Premium in San
Jose yesterday. Regular was $1.15. Another
Shell station was $1.35 for Premium (but was
There are (at least) two variables here:

Generally, I think the Gulf South states from Texas to Florida offer the best in pricing, simply because of competition. Since these states are 12 month boating season markets, the volume of sales dictates the need to be competitive.

Now that winter is upon us here in NJ and getting out in the Montauk is not in the cards, gasoline is running about 99.9 cents per gallon. I wonder what it will be in the summer?

Was at the connecticut whaler dealer and saw a new 13 with boat Merc.motor & trailer with a big sale sign saying $8,999.00. As I wasn't interested didn't take notice as to which motor (HP) it was.
Anyone have pricing on a 17 Montauk around the country with or with out motor. Would be interesting to find out how there priceing is since they are introducing the new 17 today at the boat show.

I know gas is cheaper down there. When I visit or need to make a trip to San Jose, or East toward the Delta, I know I can save 20 cents or so. But alas I live in Daly City, where prices are the same as SF. I can get Costco gas for that price, but it seems my new van and outboard run better on Chevron. Truck doesn't know the difference.
