Would like to know more about the year of the boat, hull condition, and engines/exhaust. Using the SWAG theory (Simple Wild Ass Guess), my $.02 opinion is $45K-$55K.

That is a maybe, might be less. Whatever the total value of the hardware is what it is worth, that opinion may hurt some feelings.

The "Blue Max" has a lot of race history behind it. Not sure of the value though. Here is a thread on it. http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/o...ctive-cat.html
Just curious on the car trade, I am also a little moparcrazy LOL

I hate to reverse your question but what's the car he wants to trade worth?
And what year is his boat?
I'd hate to make a guess but I'd say she's worth some jack to the right buyer. But, and this is a big but, where's the right buyer at the right price in today's market. You might take a beating to move it quickly if the car has equal value.
She's certainly well equipped for going fast!!!

See ya,
Kelly

You are probably correct with that estimate.

Selling fast? I would think 25K in pieces. 10K for drives, 10 for motors hull and rigging, 5k for trailer. If you had 60-90 days or until mid summer, maybe 40-45K to the right buyer?
