I feel like 4k is very reasonable, sure needs work but you have to see the big picture. Pay 7-9 for one that doesn't need work.

no sir I have not but being that I've also never seen one sell for less than 4k, it's an eliminator daytona, obviously the owner knows how desirable they are. He's not in a hurry to sell so he wants top dollar for what he has, like he said this boat obviously isn't for you. And if it is then it's 4k don't be cheap trying to buy a hull that is one of the most sought after.

I wouldn't worry about the damage or the flat keel. Boats worth what he is asking and then some. A brand new one with all the goodies will cost you 15 to 17 out the door. Personally I think it's a steal. 👍👍👍👍 good luck with the sale.

Did you buy your Daytona for the engine, pump or hull......hmm yeah I think that answers that. Try to find one for less then 4k, I'll be waiting. You want to know why it's 4k... Because he said it is. You have never heard of supply and demand have you. Supply low, demand high= higher price. It's simple don't buy it or don't be cheap and pay 4k. The boat has potential plain and simple. Lots of people like these boats and will pay the money because it will be gone before you know it. Good day sir.

Being that I owned a very nice daytona that was featured in performance boats magazine with an injected bbc I feel like I should throw in my 2 cents

For $4k the boat looks ok. It's a clean stripped hull. There is no intake set and there are some things that may need to be fixed. I bought my hull for alot more and sold it for alot more. The boat is a great project boat. Pictures never do anything justice. When you show up and put your hands on it that's when you can tell. My personal opinion is that $4k is a little steep, however I can't buy the boat anyways so I am not looking. I know for a few more grand you can buy a really nice daytona that needs power and it's already clean with polished floors. You can buy daytonas  minus motors for 6 to 14 all day long. But we have all bought and sold boats before and you ALWAYS find stuff that needs to be fixed, ALWAYS.  I really think that all the guys giving this man shit for selling a hull should give him a break. Be curious and don't kill a sale. If he wanted 10k for the boat let him try. If you aren't buying the boat then don't fuck it up for someone else. GLWS. If I didn't buy a house, get engaged, planning a weddijg, got a new puppy, that boat would be in my drive way getting another injected bbc

I think the plan here was to start a problem to kill any sales so he could try his Lo Ball Tactics all over again. I'll say this in English and type real slow,,,, Im not lowering my price and this is not the boat for you so move on.what else can I say ,I can't speak any other language.

Lol... I simply asked a question to get the opinions of others. You're the one getting defensive and taking it the wrong way. No one was low balling you. I drove 2 hours there and back to see it and I would have to go back to pick it up because you didn't have paperwork. I asked you to take $200 off, not a lowball. Normally when you sell things you should expect a bit of negotiation. Anyways good luck on your sale!
