1995 bumble bee pro sport 200 with 1995 merc 200 efi. Runs good, but needs serviced. Cosmetically it is in awful shape. Clear on top cap is shot. Comes off in huge flakes. Carpet needs to be replaced and needs new seats. Has 20 foot tandem trailer that needs wood and hardware replaced. Nada says low retail is 5750. But I find that hard to believe in the condition it is. Any guesses as to about what it's worth? Thanks in advance.

Low 'Retail' is right. Usually based on good-average condition. I would expect $1000-$2000 value based on the amount of work, or for scrap.

i would think it would take a 2000.00 get get everything back in shape and do the work on it. i still would think it would be ok at 4500.00 to 5500.00 maybe more. remember you can always come down on the price. hard to say without looking at it.

refreshing to see someone be realistic about the value of an old boat. I think the $2000-$3000 price range is about right if it runs good and transom/hull/stringers are fine.

A 20 year old boat is worth what the buyer will pay for it. In the condition you describe, I would say $3K at most.

Transom condition is the key. If motor is solid thats where the value is. Recently bought and sold a solid 1990 basscat with 200gt for $2800 and everything worked on it with good seats and gelcoat.
