Default '87 Checkmate 25 Convinsor value?

Found a nice old '86 or '87 25' Checkmate Convinsor. Fresh water since new. Been sitting on the top rack of a very clean inside boat storage facility for close to 10 years. Low hrs, 380 or so.

It must have been a pricey piece when new as it has a Mercruiser Hi Performance 400 hp Cyclone (454 or 482?) BW trans and TRS drive.

I'd like to buy it, wake it up and play with it for the rest of the summer. What would be a realistic offer and what could I expect to sell it for, say 6 mos or so down the road?

Thanks in advance,

Kurt

I sold my 89 251 with a EFI 502, cutom paint and custom interior for 19,000 2 years ago. I saw it listed on ebay this summer and it didnt go over 8,000 on ebay.

I was out this sunday and a guy had a all white 251 with 454 very nice cond. he said he just bought it for $10,000

Hey if it needs a winshield I have one sitting in my garage.
