View Full Version : Used Boat
October 24th, 2010, 09:10 PM
What is everyone's opinion of a 1998 Triton TR-18 with a Mariner 150 Opti-Max? Any opinions on the boat or motor? Have an opportunity at this boat, but wanted to get some solid feedback on it first. I still need to check out the compression and all, but it looks like a pretty good deal right now. Any help would be appreciated.

First year of the Opti-Max 150.....had some problems with the 200, but I hear good stuff on the 150...If its a 1 owner with good service habits, that would be a real plus...still 13 yrs old thereabouts..
I would for sure do compression and leakdown if possible if I were buying it....
Good way to get on the water for a good price for sure...
The TR 18 Triton is all good ...early tr hulls where lighter and faster..
If it were me I would look all over it good...make sure everything electronically works..
Under $10,000 would be a big factor also...
good luck tbohn...Keep us posted..

Thanks for the welcome from all of you. I ended up not buying the boat and am going to continue to look for the perfect one. The boat had a few things I didn't like, but the guy selling it sold it right after I left. Thanks for the welcome and the help.
