I've found an aluminum v-hull boat locally that is 14' with a 6HP evrinrude engine, canopy, livewell, storage compartment, trailer, two swivel seats for $2500. Is this a good price for this boat? How fast will a 6HP engine move a 14' boat?
Manuel, a 6 horse motor is too small to plane that boat. Should be at least 10, better 15 hp.
But 6 hp will be fine if you don't mind taking it easy. Might do 7 or 8 mph with the bow sticking up in the air!
As far as price, I can't help you much from where I sit. In my opinion, the whole outfit should be in top-notch condition, and not be any more than a few years old, to fetch that price. But then, I live in an area where there is a boat for sale on every corner in town! So maybe my expectations for price are unrealistic for you.
The boat is three years old and is owned by an older couple that keeps it in there garage. The boat is painted a white color with blue stripes running down the side. It has a spray liner in the inside to keep it from rusting. The only reason for getting rid of it is because they have bought a pontoon boat because it is easier for them to get around in it.
