Re: Drift boat value
The listings WJL posted seem to be about right, maybe a bit low for here.
How beat is beat?
Bottom and chine damage?
The few used Hyde HP's around here, typically ten years old or a little less, asking mid 5’s to low 6, but they wouldn’t qualify as beat and that might include a transom mount and a ten horse smoker, oars anchor, spare oar, galvanized trailer and a cover. ( ready to float rig )
10 year old beater, 3,500 tops.
18 years old and my definition of beat, as in needs a good amount of bottom / chine work, new seats, hinges, etc.. $1,800 to $2,500.
My two cents.
