Default 2015 Tracker targa v18 combo

I am looking at a 2015 tracker targa v18 combo. It has the 150 hp motor and the 9.9 kicker. It also has the complete top with side and back curtains. It also has the boat cover. The guy wants $19500. The boat has less than 100 hours. Does this seem like a fair price?
I was also wondering if this boat is good in salt water. Thanks for any help or advice.

Seems like a good price on a 2015 boat w 150 and kicker. Some will tell you to stay away from tracker for past issues, but if you are ok with the brand, that is a good price.

Most likely fine in the ICW, or bays. I would not take it in the ocean. Also expect your trailer to rust away within a couple of years. Plan that into your price, a fresh water boat trailer will die quickly in saltwater environment.

If your looking for primarily a saltwater boat, this would not be my choice.

Thanks tracker 18, I was thinking the same thing on the price. I just can't pass it up. He's throwing in a bunch of extras too, the best of which are cannon digital downriggers.

Skeeter012, I was worried about the trailer also, so I did more research on it. The manufacturer says its a powder coated galvanized trailer. So I'm hopeful the trailer will last. Even if it doesn't, I can buy a new one for the price I'm paying for the boat.

You are definitely going to need a galvanized trailer. The brakes, if it has them you will want aluminum calipers.

I'm making a guess here but that boat new should have been about $35,000, now 2 yrs later he is willing to part with it for $19500. HUH, a $15,500 hit, while most other boats in that class are depreciating $1000 per year this one is depreciating at $7000 to $8000. Yup sign me up for a Tracker!! My cousin went through the same thing several years ago, actually had the same setup less the kicker sold it privately because nobody would take it in trade and he had less than 100 hrs on it too. There is a reason it is cheap.

And you are considering putting it in salt water.......oh my.

Trackers are a dime a dozen around here and depreciate like mobile homes. That price sounds about right for what it is.
