Ended up purchasing a nearly new Long Haul Ute - I liked the tank-like build quality, active support, a larger cockpit for a forthcoming Everglades and Keys trip. A decade ago, I had different priorities (e.g. cockpit) but times changed.

Thanks to all who responded; much appreciated.

Brain cramp... Forgot to start Long Haul Ute - that would be my first choice.

I have a Nautiraid 14 for sale in Anchorage for $500. You are welcome to see it if local. Too expensive to ship from here

I've found a couple of boats that meet my criteria but it's hard to know what I should pay in today's [sadly declining] market.

What would you offer for:

1. 2015 Trak Seeker, reportedly in excellent condition, asking $1600

2. Age unknown, Feathercraft Kahuna (with rudder, hatches), reportedly in like-new condition but photos suggest "very good", asking $2500 (seems very high)

3. 2019 Long Haul Ute demo model (with rudder) demo, asking $2300

Also would appreciate any experience with the Trak Seeker and Ute - since there is far less information on these than the Kahuna (I've owned a K-Light and Java so I know Feathercraft pretty well). Thx, Bob

I don't know the value of those boats, but I've never been reluctant to offer what I had in mind or on hand for a boat or car. I often succeed.

All of those you listed seem overpriced. I’ve got a Feathercraft Kurrent in near-new condition that I’ll put up for sale “one of these days” when I make the transition to just inflatables and hardshells but I’ll give it away to a friend before I let it go to a “low-baller”.

Of those, the Ute is a current production model with excellent support that will last for decades.
