Default how much is worth a used bare hull?

Need your input to see how much you think could sell a 1985 Formula F 35-7 bare hull? It was complete, than stripped, but every thing was kept like seats, steering, cushions, windshield, but would need the transom and bulkhead to be redone. no engines or drive. Any thoughts ? know anybody who bought hull similar to that? Thanks!

I think a better question would be how much you need to pay to have it hauled off. The hull might be worth a few thousand, but if it needs transom and bulkhead work (and maybe stringers) you would need to put a few thousand into that. Basically it is a wash. There are some fantastic deals on that type of boat now (like Bford's) and the money and effort to bring that one back would be staggering.

I agree once you say transom and bulkeads......stringers? you are going to scare off just about anyone. It is sad to say but they are not worth a whole lot even done. I never understood why but.....

If you go to the Formula area you can see what is involved in the repair.

You did not say if it had a trailer. There could be some value in that?

Buddy had a 84? 272 with the two running 350's and drives(one bad drive). Interior, exterior and transom were shot. He got a little over 1,000 from the local junk man. No trailer.

Glencove in LOTO would probably ask about 10K for it if they had it
