Hull vs Complete boat

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What is the opinion with sellling an older boat (87' 251 convinsor) as just a hull vs a complete boat? In todays market would it be any easier to sell the hull only and keep my motor? Then sell off the parts on ebay? Just a thought, I have had my boat for sale last year, if I keep the motor I could use it in another project ( 600 plus hp bbc ). Has anyone had any luck that way?

I would think a complete boat will be easier to sell. Not too many people want a project boat. My .02

Being that it is older you probably cant get what you want for it. If you want to keep your motor find a used complete motor to swap. Like Tony said it will sell easier if it works.Sadly, its only worth what the book says its worth and doesn't value your motor properly.

2 more cents.

Thanks for the reply's. I had it for sale last year, no luck just figured if I got 5k for the hull and trailer, then sold off some of the assorted parts (drive, steering, tabs ...) I would be money ahead. Oh well, anybody want an 80 mph Checkmate 251 for 15k ???
