Hi, Newbie here.
I am checking out a used(2008) Duckhunter built by someone locally.
I want to check out the fiberglass work and make sure the boat still looks solid. Can anyone give me a fair price for a 14'7 duckhunter with a loadrite trailer and a 9.9hp motor?

Cost $600+ to built the boat just in materials. Trailer gonna cost you $5-600+. Might find a 9.8 for $600 if older. You looking at $1800-$2k easy especially if it is rigged and has a blind and ready to hunt. I have the plans for one myself - on my bucket list. I think it would be a great boat with a 9-15 ob or a mud motor.

A lot depends on the builder, the materials used, accessories added and how well its been kept up. I've been building them along with several other models (Toller Boatworks
)I designed for a little over a decade and have boats from coast to coast. I will say a 9.9 on that boat is just going to plow water with a load. Not sure of your location, but if you are up in Mass I'd be leery of that boat, the guy posted up on craigslist trying to sell it saying I was the builder and it wasn't one of my boats and used a picture from my site of one of my boats on the water
Didn't have the balls to return my call but ended up editing the ad then removing entirely.

I built one and still working on it. We built it with same materals they use on lager boats. I wish that had gave Brad an order, because I know I have over 3k in boat and 2k in mud motor.
