Thoughts on how much it's worth?

The morons are running it on land with barely any water flowing. They even put it in gear and are running the prop out of water. See the video at the bottom.

Well, some insurance company felt it was much better to give the fellow a new one rather than fixing that so it might cost more than 70% of the new price to repair it.
The thing to note is that much of the visible damage is quite a distance from an impact location so the hull flexed very badly to cause that damage. You would need to separate the top from the hull to really evaluate and repair the damage.

In my opinion it is worth what the salvage value of the driveline is worth and maybe you could make a bit by selling the dash, tower, seats and other parts.
Not a project I would consider.

So a new hull for this boat was priced out from MC at a little over 40k by itself. Last time I heard, the bidding was over 60k. Not worth it when you can get a new one for 125ish

As Art said, this is likely a cap off job. On a new boat with PITA electronics and unknown construction techniques that may be a nightmare to disassemble and put the cap back on? If you don't mind glass work and have the space to basically do a full cap off restore, could be a year of many nights and weekends... Maybe $10k-$15k?

a good glass guy could make it look right. I'd be concerned its not straight and repairable taking a drop like that. def not for 60K

That's why they auction and list all the disclaimers saying they are responsible for nothing (even running engine/prop out of water which fried the impeller and the shaft bearing)....someone is gonna be a sucker. It will also have a salvage title and make it really hard to sell down road
