Have you considered building one? Buying something like that can get pricey. There are lots of jon boats available for cheap and with some time and cash you can build a heck of a rig.

Type in "Reservoir Boat" on Craigslist... there are a few for sale. I would however recommend building your own as well, as acwatkins stated, you can customize it how you would like to who you are going to take out in the future. Buy a shell 16ft+ and utilize the shell until you get out on the water and figure out what type of layout you would like.

It is a possibility but will be difficult to find a fully rigged electric boat for sale this far into the season, maybe towards the end when the reservoirs will close in Decemeber. Good luck with whatever you choose.

I thought I might tell you what I did with my first and second reservoir rigs.
My first one was a 1981 Grumman 14 ft, V-Jon. Kind of a V front with sides much like a jon boat, not as much taper with a 52 inch floor at the stern. Major problem with it was that it was hit with an outboard on the back that slightly bent the stern. I didn't care because I didn't plan on putting a gas motor on it again. My Buddy fishandkamp found it at a dealer in Harrisburg, PA and I got the boat and trailer for $500. Almost everything on the boat was purchased used and I was on the water in a short period of time. I sold the boat to finish my present one for $1750.
A Friend gave me a 1973 Ouachita 1648 that he had been given. The inside of the boat was not adequate for a guy my size so I took it all out. I wanted a boat that I could fall into and not out as easy as a high deck style. Most everything in this boat was purchased new. I have a touch over $3000 in it and it has never let me down. The only used parts in it are batteries which I will probably replace this Season.
Not sure how handy you are but building your own is a good thing because you know what everything is and where it is. I am sure you can find all the online help you can handle here and other reservoir guys that you know. Your biggest investment, from what you have said, would be the stern mount motor. Torqueedos and Ray Motors are not cheap and then you have to buy batteries. Let us know what you decide.

Man, sorry to hear you missed out on that deal Danny.
You might want to contact Reservoir Boat Works and see what they have. They outfit some really nice boats and offer some really nice options for power and batteries. They will probably be the upper end of your budget because of labor and new parts.
How about getting a "bare bones" rig not to get on the water and have Reservoir Boat Works give it a facelift or do it yourself over the Winter? Just another possible option.

Hey Danny, Just came back from Craigslist Baltimore. My first reservoir boat, definitely barebones, is on there for sale, $2200. Do a search for "Reservoir Boat", that is what the listing says. Again, definitely barefones. I opted to do more with the sixteen footer I was given.

Okay. So at the end of the day, based on all your specifications, how much?

This is very important to know beforehand before you start looking and wasting time. You are asking for some high dollar items on your initial request.
