Default Rewire costs ?

I have a "04" Sea Boss (same as Sea Pro) 19' Bay boat, electrical components consist of bow / stern light, bilge pumps, VHF, GPS, Stereo, live well (no aerator), perko switch, and two batteries. Currently I am having no problems, but I don't like the wiring, birds nest under the console, and corrosion on the wires, most likely original from "04" what do you think someone would charge to rewire and do it RIGHT, not jerry rigged. And I am sure there will be a ton of (do it yourself it's easy) like I said I want it RIGHT. Any ideas of costs ?????????

Its not a hard job.
Good marine grade wire and connectors are expensive but last.
I would put it off if I could until the weather cools off. To Damn hot to work on boat wiring right now!

Not even close....They are all different....It would start about $3000.

Fuse panels, BEP cluster and WAY to much to list here.


It's time and material.

You get what you pay for. Lot's of people think it's OK to use Bare Copper battery ends.

You get into pumps. Start pricing them. You did want a back up.....didn't you? You do want a High Water alarm......Don't you?

It Starts going.......$100 + $100 + $100 + $100 + $100 + $100 etc,etc,etc. Oh.....and then there is labor.

for your size of boat and for all the materials and labor for what you need $1,500 is on the high side . Some people make a living at ripping people off ,and charging you full price for everything with a bunch of high end materials . Not knocking X-shark here he does excellent work probably far better than most just to pricey for my blood . I re-wired the 31 contender with all new wire , connectors, breakers, switches for under $1,000 but did the work my self .JMO

FYI I had a custom built switch panel made, top of the line switches and breakers (13), CNC cut and fiber optic backlighting. All prewired. That was $750.00. I re-wired the boat myself with marine grade wiring, and marine heat-shrink connectors. A couple of hundred in parts. Changed all the lights to LEDs, another few hundred and have replaced all pumps. Probably $1000.00 in pumps.
