How Do You Determine the NADA Value of a Boat Motor?

To determine the value of a boat motor, visit the NADA Guides website and select "Boats" at the top of the page, then click on "Outboard Motors." From there, enter specific details about the motor in order to get a price summary. The values given on the NADA Guides website include the average retail value, suggested list price and low retail.

The instructions below start from the "Outboard Motors" page:

  1. Select a motor manufacture
  2. Select the boat motor manufacturer from the list. If the manufacturer is not in the initial selection, use the drop-down box to select from the full list of manufacturers.

  3. Select year and type of motor
  4. Use the first drop-down box to select the year of the motor and the second to select the type of motor. Once the year and type are selected, the page refreshes with a list of all available motors.

  5. Select the motor
  6. From the list of motors, select the one desired to obtain pricing information. This calls up the suggested list price, low retail price and average retail price of the motor.

  7. Get reports
  8. Use the links on the site to get a full boat history, purchase boat insurance or obtain financing for the craft.
