Value of a motor

I am thinking about buying boat at an insurance auction. A tree fell on it, so it is pretty much destroyed. It does have a good 90 horse Evenrude motor on. I'm thinking about buying it and putting the motor on my pontoon and selling the 60 HP Bigfoot that is on there now. My current motor is a 1998 and the one that I might buy is a 2007. Any idea on the resale value of either of these motors (ballpark)?

Re: Value of a motor

when I sold my boat I got online and found a blue book for motors. You'll need the years and hp and possibly the model and serial number.

I gotta go agitate the techies!

$100 to $200 + $100 to $150 per horse depending on condition/age as a general rule of thumb.

Re: Value of a motor

It sold at the auction the other day for $1700. I probably should have bought it. I could have either used the motor or resold it. The boat was junk, but the seats, console, etc were still good. I could have gotten a couple hundred for the scrap aluminum, but I just don't really have the time or place to mess with it.

Re: Value of a motor

That motor, being a 2007 was probably worth at least $3500. I am like you though, I wouldnt want to mess with the thing.

There is no "X" in my bow!!

I'd say that motor new had to be around $8000.00

This site has been a very good reference for me, in the past, when trying to determine the value of marine equipment..

Re: Value of a motor

NADA is what I use. Note: Dealer buy/trade in prices are lower than NADA. They need to re-sell.
