So I have a friend looking at some boats. We have come across 2 possibilities and wanted to see what you guys thought on price? I would like to figure out what each one is worth approximately or if one is worth more then the other.
2009 Ride 23
2 pairs tower speakers
no sub I think
pop up cleats
Has Cruise of some sort. I think it comes standard.
34 hours, yes 34.
Apparently a repo boat but the boat is at the original dealer that sold the boat now and has been checked out. They said only one small scratch so the boat must of actually been taken care of.
Indmar 340 Monsoon engine w/266 hours
Precision Pro Cruise
4 Tank Ballast 1,250 lbs.
Swivel Board Racks
Carpet protector insert
Wind Screen shield
Tandem axle trailer
This one sounds like it is in good shape and been well maintained. It has a little staining in between cushions a little from little bits of dirt between the cushions but can't tell you how bad it is. My guess is not bad at all from the pictures I have seen. Only other thing is that it had a blowout at some point and the fender is a little scarred up. Maybe $500 to fix. This one is back at the dealer that originally sold it I believe.
So what are your thoughts on what they are worth? Take Wake completely out of the picture as I don't think it is important at all and I know both have great wake hulls. I know the Ride may need some extra ballast up front if using the wedge.
Anybody have any idea what a brand new Ride 23 would cost in 2009 similarly equipped? How about a ride 23 similarly equipped for 2012?
