I have been in the search of a good used 21' bass boat. Well I found this slightly used (40hrs on Merc. 250xs) Triton, this boat does not have a scratch on the boat or trailer. Has been in climate controlled garage since new, and has not been on the water in two years. With push of start button engine fired up and idled nicely. I have not drove the boat yet but will soon. Price is a little high (40's) for me but boat is like brand new, could not find anything wrong with it. I have climbed all over this boat and it is very close to perfect! Has anyone owned or been in this model boat, and care to give thoughts?

Have a compression check done. I would take it to ( or have the owner) have it checked by a Merc dealer.

Triton makes a great boat. Get a compression check, do a test drive and check out every electronic feature on the boat, and enjoy your new ride.

My 1997 Triton is still just as good as the day it was new when we drove it off the showroom floor.

Not good for an outboard to set up for 2 years, I'd have a reputable mechanic look it over. Not that there's anything wrong but might need some new filters, oil change, fresh fuel, etc. Can't see the rest of the boat but you probably got a good deal and will love it.

You will love it. The HP hull was my favorite, it's not for a beginner, you will have to drive that boat.

If you do buy it, you will want a qualified mechanic to know it's been sitting two years (40 total hrs on a '13 has probably sat for longer) and let him go. It will be a pretty hefty bill I'm sure, but worth it in the long run.

I bought a 2003 with 42 hours on it.

A compete fuel scrub ....filters, ALL OF THEM, fuel lines, and tanks cleaned is a must. On mine, I also replaced all oils, injectors, and plugs.

Better safe than sorry. Also, you will get a good deal. You will want to KEEP it a good deal by replacing things that could have been harmed by old gas.


The guys at the ramp ask me how my "sewing machine" runs. It's sooo quiet. It runs perfectly.

Awesome boat. I bought a used 2012 21HP w a 250 Merc Pro XS. The thing is great, however I highly suggest you have the compression checked as recommended above. When I got the boat I notice I had a hard time getting on plane, especially with a big load. Well, long story short my #2 piston was losing and eventually just lost all compression. It was going to cast almost 10,000 to repair but I was offered a 2017 merc 250 installed for just over 17,000. Moral...have it checked. The boat is awesome though.
