    I have a 1989 16ft basstracker PF that is in decent shape. The engine is a 40hp johnson but it quit running last weekend. :angry: I am going to sell it and cut my losses. What would be a good asking price for an aluminum boat with no motor?

    Thanks

    Are you selling it with a trailer? And are you going to leave the motor on there? If yes, and yes, I would say around $1500. Even if the motor is not running I think it will be worth more if it's included. If it's the boat alone, you might get $900.00.

    You might get more, set the price high. Maybe start at $2000 to get the most that you can out of it.
