Default Stryker speed boat?

Okay I am very new to the boating world and have found a boat I cant stop thinking about I know nothing about it it is a stryker looks to be 21 ft or longer needs alot of work I dont even see the lower unit in it and the interior is completly shot I dont know if the engine was winterized I do know that it has been sitting well rotting for at least 7 years what would you guys estimate the boats value if the engine is shot and if the engine is good.

Last time I checked, there was a boat called a Stryker that was actually the old Hammond Challenger. I believe they were built for a short time in the late 1980's or so. From what I remember, they were a nice riding fairly quick boat. I don't recall their construction being anything to write home about though.

If you're new to the boating world, stay away from "handman's specials." Generally speaking, they turn into a money pit in a real hurry.

A 21 Stryker is a fast river boat and was available with a 502 mag/bravo 1 that produced speeds in the high seventies.

However, you will always get a better deal if you buy a boat with the work done. You never get your money back on "fixer ups" unless it's a house.

Search for Styker here and you will find a lot of info. I would avoid the boat you are describing unless you are able to do all the wood/glass work yourself.

If the engine does run and it has an outdrive that isnt broken, then it would be worth 1500-2500 assuming the glass needs work and the interior is shot.

Unknown engine and no outdrive and sitting on a trailer, the price should not exceed 500 in my opinion. He mght pay you to haul it away

There is nothing wrong with Strykers and they are fast for their size with no bad traits, however they have been out of business for more than 12 years so they are orphans and don't see much resale value.

I owned a 2150 Styker Stealth. Fun fast starter boat, very very fast with a 502/ Bravo one. You buy it for less than 3k and throw another 20K for interior, exterior, engine, drive ect...ect it would be worth 10 to 12K finished. I hope my math helps....
