Hyside, Is it worth it?

I just found a 13 ft. Hyside for sale. The last couple of numbers on the serial # are 04 so I'm guessing its a 2004. The seller wants $ 2800 for the raft, just the rubber. I've heard nothing but good things about Hyside, so is this a good deal. The boat is in great shape.

I have a Hyside Cat from 1990, not a patch on it, original valves, holds air great! Its been ridden hard for 20+ years and looks great.

I recently bought a 14' hyside with some accessories and frame for about $2100. It's a 94! Looks like new and I just finished a Diamond creek down trip in the Grand. Hauled a heavy load like a champ. No leaks or any other problems. They just won't die!

I have had my hyside for 12 years now and it has been great. With that said, $2800 for an '04 seems a bit pricey. You can get a 13 (12'7") footer new for just over $4000.

The owner seems flexible on price, I think he was just trying to get as much as possible for what seems to be a great boat. What do you think would be a reasonable offer? I would hate to let the boat slip by. I don't mind paying a little more for a great used boat that will last a long time.
thanks for the input.

is it a outfitter or outfitter pro?

and you really have not given much info or history on the boat for numbers for an offer, btw.

Hysides appear to be decent boats (never owned one) but $2800 seems an awful lot for a 13' SB thats going on 9 years, even if in immaculate shape. Especially since you can get a brand new Saturn for slightly less





Wait for it
