list it for 20% more than you will take for it. its worth what someone will pay for it...


It's worth what the market wants to pay for it.

Being almost springtime, it'll get a little more attention.
It's arkansas-duck hunting capital of the world. That helps the value too (if it's 25 hp)

It's a merc. It may not bring quite as much as a Mega or Yamaha. 4 stroke tends to bring a little more $$$ from the more mature guys who like to fish more than hunt (like myself). Electric start is going to be more desirable as well.

How bad does it need to be sold? That affects how much you're willing to take for it. So does it's condition. If a seller can sit on it a while and turn down offers, sooner or later the "right" buyer will show up and want it. That is, unless it's WAY overpriced to begin with, and typically it won't get even a single bite if that's the case.

Some of them are advertised at $1800-$2000, but what did they sell for (if they even sold)? I sold a Yamaha 4 stroke 25 a while back...stock prop...great shape but faded cowling, and got $2000 out of it. Then I sold a 2 stroke (25esh) and figured it'd go for around 2 bills, sat on it almost a year and finally got tired of screwing with it...let it go for $1600. Just as I said, the market sets the value, and the market changes by the minute.

Hahaha. Yall must have not noticed that he spent the last two weeks really pumping up the mercury while it was listed on the interwebs for sale at the same time. Can't blame him for trying to boost the price and getting a motor that just makes more sense if you haul more than 1 person around.
