Rough valuation

Hello, I have a 2004 Johnson 140 Hp outboard on the back of a north craft 6.2m inflatable. It's a dive club rib and we no longer use it enough to justify keeping it.

I think the engine has around 600 hrs on it

The boat would be classed as a project boat, in poor condition but the tubes hold air. We spent approx 600 on the engine during the summer and have not used it since.

How much would u reckon it's worth?

It would make a good project for someone.

Probably less than you think / hope!

With projects I would be inclined to put it on eBay.

Is the engine 2 or 4 stroke and is it in good running order?

presumably you have a trailer?

I'd be inclined to split the package.

Assuming the Johnson is a 2-stroke V4, then you'd probably see up to 1,200, depending on condition. The recent work all helps. Mid-sized 2-strokes up to 90hp command a better premium, especially in Yamaha guise.

Bill Higham is expensive for his used outboards, but gives you some indication of prices. Used Outboard Motors for Sale | Used |Second Hand | Outboards | UK

Seamark Nunn have a good selection too: http://www.seamarknunn.co.uk/download/usedob/used.pdf

The boat and (assuming there's a trailer too) can be sold as project. Price-wise will depend just how much of a project we're talking about. A re-tube for a 6.2m boat will probably be in the region of 6k+. If the tubes still hold air, but could benefit from new wear patches and a general tidy, then there's money in that too. If the deck is goosed and soggy, then you're looking under 500.

This is quite a good site to sell the RIB: Ribs inflatables for sale - FAFB or indeed Ebay.

If you go onto ebay and select "completed listings" you'll see what prices things actually sold for (if they sold at all).......Always worth a look before you bid on anything too.

I was going on the 1k per metre rule of thumb! Means you can use the other 1,500 for diamond tread patches, grab handles, reinforced rubbing strake, fixtures for paddles, etc.

Cheers for the update Paul.
