    Hi all-
    I'm looking at buying a 2007 Hobie Outback kayak for my son. It's priced at $1100, but I think there's room in the seller's price. There aren't any bells and whistles that come with it.

    1) It's 11-12 years old......What's a good price for this boat, assuming that everything works?
    2) Is this ocean worthy (i.e. La Jolla kelp)

    Thanks in advance!

    FWIW, for that much of an investment, I would want to meet at a place where I could test the kayak for any leaks. Good luck!

    Seems a bit high for such an old one to me. Definitely able to hit LJ if it doesn't leak and isn't 'bent' to destroy its' tracking... Hunt around, could find one a bit newer after the season for 800 or less, I would say

    I’ll be selling my 2012 hobie outback soon and my price would be in that same range. The fold up rudder and easy click in drive are a nice addition over the older hobie models.

    I’d wait around for a better deal on a newer yak. The off season is when the deals start popping up. Especially around late November and December.

    I sold my 2007 outback for $800 this summer. No leaks, had older humminbird FF.
