Decent deal? Details in the comments
That’s what I’m thinking. I’m just getting back into fishing and want to start with a small boat and feel this would work out just fine for me.
2003 War Eagle 648 with trailer 16 ft 4 inches long. Comes equipped with a 2021 Mercury 25 hp EFI 4 stroke engine that is still covered under the factory warranty. The engine is tiller steer, has power trim and tilt and electric and pull start.
Also includes Minn Kota Edge 45 lb thrust trolling motor, running lights, bilge pump, front deck w pedestal seat, rear pedestal seat, driver seat, fuel tank, battery, pop up blind (for duck hunting), mooring cover, Garmin striker 4 fish finder and Wesco galvanized trailer with new tires.
He originally wanted $10k but talked him down to $8500. Says he has $6000 in the motors with paperwork.
That’s about a 5-6k motor new. Your essentially getting a hull trailer and everything for 2k. Provided it doesn’t leAk? Fair price Edit- does the trailer have paperwork/registration
War Eagle makes super solid boats. If you’re going to use it for fishing and hunting, this is a good deal.
You can’t go wrong with a Mercury tiller, they last forever with routine maintenance, and if you have an oopsie in shallow water there are plenty of places to get them serviced.
Fishing is the main reason but also just to easily get out on the water to be out there. As I’m looking though, I’m finding other boats such as an 08 Bass tracker for $9k and an older Nitro for $6500. I don’t have a lot of boating experience. I just want to get out there and fish.
Not terrible for a having a 2021 Mercury 20hp. You could maybe build it for the a tiny bit less but definitely not worth the hunt unless you’re into that.
