One of the 3 Parker's I've been on (just remembered Ronnie had a 23 ft deep v too) was an IO and actually that was a decent setup, however it was a relatively new & very well maintained boat at the time.Ya, I'm worried about that. Wondering if I could sell the motor and outdrive to help finance a bracket and outboard
NADA is good for pretty much nada when it comes to many older boats, no idea why it's so screwed up with common boats but as you point out generally it's low.Anyone hazzard a guess what a 1989 25' Parker Sport Cabin inboard/outboard with Mercury 350 260hp and newer trailer might be worth? No real details yet but package looks to be in good shape for the age. Dual steering stations. NADA says $6k but I'm going to assume real market value is probably double that, especially if the motor and outdrive run well and have been recently serviced?
Who you going to sell it to ??? most folks know to stay away from outdrives. If you really have to buy that boat make the offer like it didn't have any motor, your going to have to replace it in a short time.Ya, I'm worried about that.

50 grand and its still a old parker ?? If i was going to spend that I'd look for a 25 BHM,repco or young brothers with a small diesel. I'm betting this one might be had for 50 ?NADA is good for pretty much nada when it comes to many older boats, no idea why it's so screwed up with common boats but as you point out generally it's low.
Deep V parker 25's are fairly sought after, mod V versions are worth less $$ but still hold value, not sure what you got there (almost think back then they only made one that was kinda in between the two?)..
Normally you would be hard pressed to find a turn key one in decent shape for < $25K.
The IO part decreases value to the point where it's almost like selling the boat minus power and the age decreases value; not being a deep V decreases value. You gotta look at the specific condition, especially if there is any sign of core getting soft, wiring, corrosion, conditions of windows, all that stuff.
I think if generally the boat is in good shape at 10K on a good trailer you are not getting hurt. If for instance you dropped 35K into it for bracket, repower, some electronics update, you would have < 50K into and you could not buy what you had for that $$. This is site unseen, the boat could be a complete POS for all I know.
Well an old Parker with brand new power & rigging. I know what you mean and have done similar myself before; I do think it was absolutely worth it to have trouble free engines of known service history, especially on a trailer boat where outboards stay really clean over time. The boat of course needs to be a well kept example to make this worth it.
makes you wonder how it worked out for this guy if he has a 30 year old outdrive that’s still working?Old fiberglass is fine. Outdrives............never last long enough to get old...........unless you mean from a maintenance perspective. Then it gets old very quick!
