|punjabi||Also, the re-power happened somewhere between 1996 (when that engine began production) and 2001 when the seller bought the boat. So the original engine was less than 13 years old when removed. Por que?|

I got a copy of the original order form for the boat, and it was ordered with the M25 (non B). The B is what they're currently installing in the C28 MKII and C310 (which is 26hp...nice!)
I wonder why the re-power on a newer than 20 year boat. Thoughts?

Wow! Nice work. I was digging through those schematics as well and had no luck. What do you think the B designates? It really looks significantly different from the the "non B" models of the 25.
Thanks for doing that CapnHand!

I've changed my mind, it's not the M3-20. I would say the broker is correct. It's an M-25XPB to be precise, based on the valve cover and intake manifold.

|punjabi||I just got a call from the broker saying that it is a Universal 25MXP (25 HP). I'm about 99% certain that is incorrect. What say you all?|

You're absolutely right. The boat is worth what someone will pay for it.
I don't mean to hijack the thread, but what do you think of this?

Our brokers here in Dana Point seem to set prices unreasonably high. There is a lot of foot traffic and I think they get a lot of walk-ins that do not understand the market now. I do not know this particular boat, but I can tell you that from time to time you will see nice Catalina 30s for sale and go for under $20,000 all the time. I had one about two years ago, a 1985, that was pretty nice, though not as nice as the first one you mentioned. I had it on the market for almost a year at $24,000, then I listed it at $17,000 for a while. Finally donated it to the Boy Scouts.
The used boat market right now is a buyers' market. Very few boats are moving unless they are very attractively priced. I think the appropriate price would be under $25,000.
