Honda 90 - whats it worth, ball park figure?

Guys,

What do you think a used Honda 90 is worth?

It has full service history. The motors a 1999 model. Longshaft. Not sure about the hours but i beleive it to be low. Since i have use it in the last 3 years i have done about 100hrs. Theres a few scuff's on the paint work but nothing much; looks tidy.

I would sell the engine, trim/tilt and console control together.

It never let let me down or missed a heart beat and seems very economical.

Hows the best place to sell it; given that it on my rib? - e-bay and let the winnner dissemble or via some dealer/broker?

Best price?
worst price?

i think you should be able to get between 3-4k, depending on hours, condition etc, i had calls for mine at just under 4k but it was in perfect condition as new
i put it on boats and outboards, withdrew it as i sold it with the boat. i was thinking of selling it and buying a hon 25 to go on the boat as a river only boat

back then they would have been around 7k new

oops, hightower has prompted me to mention i had mine advertised last year around this time. it did not sell as i withdrew it but i did get calls. if yours is a good condition engine then aim high as some dealers have some crappy old tat that they charge the earth for...i would try at 3.5k and see if you get any takers/interest but if you are in a hurry then aim for 2.5-3k

Yeh as Chris says, Boats and Outboards is a terriffic free resource that has to be used.

As for price....Hmm

It's an 8 year old motor.

Buy all means advertise it at a silly price, you might be lucky and get a bite staight away. I would have thought that 2-3K more like it for a faster sale. I bought a 2001, 90 4 stroke for 3250 with low hours and full history and that was 2 years ago and from a dealer. The 150 DI 2005 I've bought from Power tech with 30 hrs running and 15 months warranty left for a little over 4k

A good formula for valuation is to take the new price, say 7,000 then deduct 20% because you lose around 20% on something as soon as you take it out of the shop then deduct 10% for every year after.

i.e 7,000- 20% =5,600 1st year
-10%= 5,000 2nd year
-10%=4,500 3rd year
-10%=4,000 4th year
and so on
so on this formula your engine would now be worth about 3,000 if it was 7,000 new that is. of coarse you have to take into consideration engine hours and condition which adds value or decreases it. Don't take this system as a rule though only a guide.

then add a bit on cos its a honda and they have good resale

when i was selling my previous boat that is something similar to what someone said to me about boats and how i should value mine......er dont think so

if i had followed his advice instead of my gut instincts i would have been out of pocket to the tune of 5000-6000 compared to what i sold it for. ie 33% out of pocket.

best advice i can give is phone up the two for sale, see if sold and if they did how much for, if not sold how long they have been up for...do your own market research

when folks sell something and they say...it was fab....i had loads of calls...in fact i still get em.....first person who saw it bought it...........my view is they sold it too cheap. if i get one call and that person buys it i think i have the price spot on especially if it takes 2-3 weeks to sell or more......just my view

Yer i know second hand goods don't have any set value, getting as much as you can for something though is a fine art thats takes some practice.

Hi Mark,

Could be interested, what rib do you currently have your 90 on? I am looking for a newer more economical engine for my Ribtec 585, currently have an old Mariner 135hp 2-stroke that's killing me with fuel bills (~1.3litres per mile!). What kind of economy and performance are you getting from it?

Cheers!
Neil
