How much to ask when selling my boat?

I think the time may have finally come to ditch my raft. Thinking of drift boats...

It's a two year old NRS Outlaw 13' boat with the drop stitch floor. Floor has five patches. Boat has none. Double rail 3-bay frame with low back seat and wood decking. Front lean bar setup for fishing. No rear seat, but am thinking of getting it built before I sell to make it complete.

Two carlile aluminum oars, whatever the standard ones are. One spare.

One drop bag. One extra oar. Swivel seat for rear, if ever needed.

Also have two twarts and six paddles.

And a tilt trailer with solid title.

Anyone care to help me ballpark my asking price? The frame cost about $550 thus far, and I could finish the read section for a couple hundred more bucks and add the swivel seat if it'd help it sell.

$15,000 if the trailer's included!

But seriously, unless you've got a rear seat sitting around you've got no use for, I suggest selling as is, the future owner can add a rear fishing seat if they want one or you can offer that as an add-on. Someone may be interested in just buying it and ditching the lean bar to run whitewater.

And clean the boat before taking a picture for the ad. The mud on it looks like it could be where the material has failed terribly.

Good luck,

I've been shopping around for boats all summer.

The raft might fetch $1000-1300 given the patches. But having the frame and a turn-key package is appealing. I'd suggest $3000-$3500 for the whole package.

Also agree that you should clean it before posting it.

If you want to send those oars my way, I'm in the market.
