Does anyone have any idea what a restored boat like this would be worth.
I plan on putting in a permenet fuel tank. New throttle/ shift cables and control box, new steering system, new paint and clearcoat, full motor tune and repaint and fix the trailer.

It has a 115 hp merc straight 6 and looks to be the origonal motor.

I would guess it would be worth 5-6K.

All of your input would be great.

one of the best places for boats like this is screamandfly.com these guys are big on outboard stuff and seem to have a good amount of history knowlege on board. i just picked up a mid 70's 16 foot glastron lookin thing and they were able to help me identify it. i did a search for Duo and got a bunch of hits but you have to sort out the ones for volvo duo prop.

I have a Duo Mystry 17 hull - it had an inline 6 150hp mercury when I bought it. That outboard lasted 1 season. I spent an entire summer reinforcing hull and transom and put a mercury 175 on it. I used it mostly for waterskiing and kept the 19 pitch prop on it, it still did 60mph w/ such a low pitch. What a fun boat. I ended up selling my outboard years ago when I needed the money. I am planning on repowering for next season. If anyone would like any more info. or photos I would be happy to provide. This is only the second time I found this boat mentioned on the internet, other than the link you guys already found.

Any info about this would be appreciated.
I own one of these boats. It is restored with a 150 Yamaha. It is the neatest thing to drive . I get alot of looks on the lake as no one has seen one of these. Email me [email protected]

Haven't had the chance to talk to the guy about it again but the last times that I talked to him he was a real prick and he wound't even entertain the thought of selling. It really pissed me off. He hasn't used it in probably 20+ years and he owes my neighbor who stores it for him all the time. He pays a little then lets the fee ramp up again. Yet he won't sell............I'll keep waitng. I am building a house now and I don't have the time or the money to buy it and put it back together.
