    Default What's my Rogers Bonneville worth?

    I have a 74 Rogers Bonneville that runs hard to 95 mph. I can't sell it and get enough for all that I've invested especially the time I have into it. I'm thinking I'll sell it with everything removed except the stock intake and suction pump housing. I'm keeping the $1k pump shaft I just bought. I'll also keep the bowl & everything attached to it. Gel is faded and the previous owner did some clear coat that sucked. I sanded most of it off. Doesn't look bad, but it isn't a pretty boat like most of what I see here. I simply decided when I had money to spend it would be about the engine & pump. I didn't get to having the intake reset with ride plate. I have a HTP bolt on I never installed. Maybe I'll sell that since I'm not going to use it.

    What stays is the 2 bucket seats, side fuel tanks, BBC engine mounts, Drive line (matches engine location & pump), gauges that are on dash, steering system.

    As we all know the Rogers is a really good hull and no bottom work is necessary.

    Trailer is old, but strong. I replaced all wheel bearings recently.

    I'm trying to figure out what a fair price would be for both parties involved. I realize any boat is only worth what someone is will to pay.

    Thoughts appreciated

    I paid a grand for my 74 Bonneville a few years back. Basically a usable hull with a single axle trailer. Had most of the interior, some 460 mounts, jet with diverter and a stainless impeller, gas tanks, some old gauges and some odds/ends. Gel was ok, it polished out, but I didn't like the blue accent parts. I redid EVERYTHING, it had been sitting for 20 years or so.

    Good deal for you! I'm thinking I would take $4k, anything lower it can just sit.

    Sending my son to college next year so I'm thinking ahead, besides business is slow and I don't see much change happening anytime soon.

    Bought a few Rogers in the past
    19'TR complete running boat $4500.00
    18' Super Cyclone needed work $2200.00
    18' Super Cyclone light layup hull and trailer $800.00
    19' TR Bare hull $400.00
    20' Bonneville Classic less motor needed some work $2000.00
    18' Cyclone Ex race boat $650.00

    In reality, it might be worth $1500 - $2000 to the right person

    Just my .02

    Im kind of in the same boat with my Liberty I am getting ready to sell. I know its a great hull but it has a decent amount of dings and scratches from the previous owner that I know will hurt the value. I plan on selling mine turnkey though just dont know if it would be worth it to fix the paint or not before I sell.
