    12-14K, assuming the trailer and engine are in at least decent shape.

      Are you serious? I'm asking $19,900. I figured I'm take $17,500 right now if offered.

      Any other opinions?

        Its a 12 year old engine, that is already on a rebuilt powerhead, so its value is minimal. The hull probably books around 8K, the trailer 1.5K, and 3-4K for the motor and misc. I know alot of people ask more, but I have owned two Mako 21's, and a Mako 23, and I am in the same market as you, as far as buying and selling. Compounding things is the fact that the motor is carb, and the Tampa area, carb motors are a tough sell these days with gas at $2.15 a gallon.

        Please don't get mad, you asked.

          I know it hurts..Last year i bought my 232-b 1995 with a 95 ocean runner ..just boat and engine..good -to great shape..13500.00..It does seem to matter location...location...location..Even for a seasoned boater a rebuild power head is a huge mental block for re-sale..[:u]Sold engine to fellow mako owner(Hey bob) for 3000.00 with controls..(Most of them!!!)And its in really good shape with low hours and very nicely maintained..Are you getting any play??Thats the real answer!!

              Hi Dan,

              In the Tampa, Florida market you're still over priced at $17,500. As others have mentioned, it's an old engine that has already been rebuilt -- a red flag for folks, and the 211 was a trimmed down version of the 221: basic console and less storage.

              Don't be offended if you get little interest or someone offers you $11-12K. You're going to have to come down unless you get someone from the northeast who's dying for a 21-22' Mako (they're hard to come by there).

              When I was getting ready to sell by first Mako, a 17', the dealer told me not to get emotionally attached to my asking price -- and he was right.

              Good Luck,

              Tom

                Sucks, but I think @ 15K will be the selling price. It appears to be a fine boat...but I can tell you that as soon as I hear "motor rebuild", I tuck my tail, unless I know the builder and it is under a transferable warranty. I also think it is the economy right now.......folks don't want to paty for the fuel. Hang in there, someone will come along and want it.

                Good Luck.
