    Default 87 saltare parts/project boat PICS

    A friend of mine is thinking of selling his Ď87 Saltare project/parts boat, either whole or in pieces. Itís in really nice shape but has no powertrain (engine/trans) and the floor is in need of work. Hull and interior are very clean, it is a low hour boat.

    Any thoughts to value if sold whole? (He or I may list it here if he goes down that path). No need to blow smoke, heíd appreciate any honest feedback. Thanks!

    Edit: I posted some pictures on page 2. Asking $1400 OBO.

    Probably worth more to part out this boat as individual pieces. As is, no matter the condition, without drivetrain, itís just a 24 foot piece of fiberglass that only a handful of people (being generous) would care to own and restore. Stringer repair alone would run near $5k for materials. Tack on motor, tranny, interior and all the rest to build out and it doesnít make really good financial sense vs used composite boat options at the moment.

    Does it have a trailer? If so, in good condition, trailer is worth more than boat. More people are looking for a good tandem axle trailer than an empty hull with rotting stringers. Buy a trailer, get a free hull would be my selling point.

    Of course, pics would help but in my honest opinion, I would part out if you wanted to maximize your earning potential.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Yes it has a good tandem trailer- I figured that’s the biggest ticket item if parted. I know it’s likely worth less whole than in pieces but there’s the time/effort in parting it out to consider. I guess I’m asking the supra world what someone might pay for it as it sits... if he could get $1500 for it he may jump. If it’s less than that, he’d still appreciate the feedback.

    He may have the powertrain but from what I recall, it had issues and that’s why he pulled it. I can find out if it’s a difference maker.

    $1500 would be a good “asking” price.

    Where is the boat located?

    Boat is in CT. So $1200-1400 might be a reasonable range? We do head to the Midwest and down the east coast a few times per year- could potentially help with delivery.

    I don't think floating museum pieces qualify as a fleet. SMH.

    I know you and you would not be able to leave this alone so therefore it would not remain a floating museum piece forever.

    Thought hours related to motors . . . .

    "but has no powertrain (engine/trans) and . . . . . it is a low hour boat"

    Sure- the engine run time (or at least key-on) is what the hour meter measures. But I’m sure we’ve all seen high hour boats that have taken a cosmetic beating. This one looks pretty good- the general condition is reflected in its low use/hours.
