Same debate goes on with the truck forum I visit.
It's all opinions and we all know about opinions.
We make decisions about the things we purchase and believe it's the right one.
I don't drink any kool-aide.

This one should sell quickly. Upgraded Minnkota. Pretty good sonar. Stored in a garage, also has a good cover.

If the goal is to save money, youíll be better off with a boat (or a car/truck) that has already lost most of its original value. I donít see the point of buying a 15 year old boat that has not lost much of its original value. I got a 15% discount on the MSRP on my new boat ($45K). If folks are willing to believe that an 8% discount off of the original MSRP is OK on a 15 year old boat, then I should be able to resell my boat 15 years down the road at a small profit. But I am not that optimistic.

That Crestliner ain't bad and at book value. A little underpowered for its size, but Colorado boats tend to be underpowered.

If there are no problems with that Crestliner, IMHO it is a great buy. You are correct about it being underpowered, top speed probably 35 mph in the interest of disclosure I own a Crestliner 1850 Sportfish.

Bought new in 1997 with 150 hp Johnson, 8 hp 4 stroke Johnson with MG Trolling motor and Electronics just under 26k for point of reference. With an hour meter that is accurate for the big motor, it is sad to see how few hours you run the big engine. The kicker engine gets probably 5 times as many hours as the main engine, possibly 7-10 times as many if I was forced to guess.
