21-25’ open bow
20-30k preferably.

Small blocks ok in the 21-23 range / Big Blocks ok as well.

Prefer smoother riding boats - Hallett 210 / Essex 21-22 / Lavey 21 XtSki etc..

Would consider 21 Stealth and variants if price was right.

What’s out there?

(For my buddy Matt)

If you want to put it in that price range I’ll be over with cash shortly.

The next thread will be “Have two Schiadas and can only keep one.” :D
Well according to the cheap asses on here , that is what it would sell for ....

That teal and grey 21 Lavey is what he needs.

Dave if you want to know what your boat is worth call Lee and ask him. It’s in the 60’s for sure.

Wait a minute my name is Matt. Are you getting me a boat? We haven’t met before but if you buy it you can call me your buddy.

There is the Schiada Whaler and the Howard Whaler listed in the classifieds. Those might be good open bow starter boats.

I know a guy with a clean 21' Sea Ray open bow. Low hours. 5.7L. Not sure if that is too "starter", but your buddy will be well under his $20k budget.

You must be well versed in used boat prices, like the rack storage

Ancient Chinese Riddle-

Is dry rack storage ever really dry when you are on the bottom rack?

Yep.. it is what it is though, no reason to complain about it if ya gotta buy one, just know what they are and what you are looking for.
In all honesty aside from the Hallett’s they seem to have mostly stabilized. I sold my 08 21’ starter boat 5 years ago for $23k. They are still in that mid $20k range for the most part private party. The brokers seem to be in the high $20s.
