87' 18' We-no-nah Sundowner
Posted by: old_user on Feb-14-13 1:48 PM (EST) Category: Canoes
I have a 18' Red Wenonah Sundowner that looks like new yet even though it was built in 87'. I have been thinking about selling it and I am having a hard time putting a value on it. It is about 75lbs so probably composite and not Kevlar. Is there anyone who can give me a true selling value? I really appreciate it!

It helps to know where you are located|

For example, if you're in Kansas it's probably worth less than if you're in Minnesota.

Good point, I am on the Minnesota Border. So could you price it according to Minnesota?
I had the same number in mind Kim did|

Thanks for your input. It's so hard to know with all the new Wenonah's in the 1500 to 2500 range.
That's not to say you can't get more|

The right buyer would probably pay more. But there's always the question of how long you want to keep it for sale.
Oh sure you can tootle it around|

For Kevlar I would go a grand on a boat|

there was only one layup for the 18'Sundowner that approached 70# and that was extra-stiffened fiberglass. With options like wood trim and sliding seats front and rear it might hit 70#. Is the bottom smooth or does it have raised ribs? Does it have ribs up the sides to almost the gunwales? What color is the interior?
