I am considering buying a boat from my neighbor. The boat is a 2005 23 LSV with about 160 hrs he has never used it for anything but cruising an pulling tubers. But he has not maintained it will either. The speedometer doesn't work so I can't check the PP. The tower speakers don't work and neither does the sub. The boat does not have wakeboard racks. The boat is propped with the 13 x 16 prop. The oil was very dark and he couldn't remember when he had it serviced last. And the boat has a ton of sun damage as well as scrapes.
On the positive the interior is in good shape and the hours are very low.
He is asking $38,000.00 I have looked around and think this would be a great deal if everything was in good shape but with all the things I would have to fix. Do you think this is still a good deal?
Thanks for any advice because $38,000.00 for a 7 year old boat feels like a lot of money.
