I am new here and wanted to see if someone could help me out I am looking at a 1984 FOUNTAIN 40 foot (12m) Lighting
The boat in spotless and super clean. The onlyt problem is that it is a REPO and the motors were & exhaust removed before they got it back. everything else is there
what would this be worth if i bought it. I just want to be safe incase I buy it and don't every find the write motors for it i don't want to lose money on it.

Pretty vague on description. If the exterior was mint and the interior has been updated and was in excellent condition, had updated throttles, gauges etc, newer drives or drives at all, trailer, it could be worth $8k or it could be worth almost $20k.
5K as is on the trailer
running with a pair of 454's the boat won't be real exciting and maybe you could get 20K for it.
I don't think the trans are there but everything else looks to be here are 2 more pictures i have..
Aren't you a bit concerned that if they had the tools out and they took the engines/exhaust there may have been a reason they left the drives on there? That trailer is not worth 5K. It is wrapped with vinyl (interesting) and probably full of rust which is why the vinyl was added (to cover it).
I know of an Apache that was purchased extremely cheap a few weeks back. Boat sat for a long time but it came back to the marina on its own power albeit one of the drives was grenaded. The deal of a lifetime just about doubled in price after the drive was replaced and a few more issues were uncovered.
This boat is not going to break 55 mph with a pair of 454's and even though it appears nice in the pictures you could easily over-improve the value and have a boat no one wants (old, heavy, non step bottom, etc.)
well the repo guy found the boat before he had the money for the motors so that it why the motors were out
Where is it located in MI? the background looks familiar
