Default How much is this boat worth ?

I'm in the process of closing a deal on a 29 blackfin combi, with twin (2006 yamaha f 250's OUTBOARDS ) the boat is originally an outboard boat from factory. The engines have 683 hours and checked out fine from yamaha mechanic I hired to do the check up.
. The trailer is tri axle and 2016 and checked out fine as well. The hull needs a good cleaning, buffing. Electronics have been updated.. raymarine axion 16" 2019. Asking price $36,500. Fair deal ? I know maybe more info may be needed, but does it sound ok ? I offered 25k cash and gentleman respectfully refused. Just want your opinions. He says price is firm. What do you all think??
ps. The boat is 1991

Think if it is good condition might be sold by the time you contact him again.

You're in the "process of closing a deal"?

Engines are worth 10 to 15. Hull the same. Depends on electronics soft goods and demand. Good luck. If it is clean and solid buy it or someone else will. Trailer another 5. It adds up.

That was my initial thought.. $36 k for a 1991 boat ? Then I looked and test rode a 2007 hydra sports 2900 vx asking 65k. As well as a 2010 grady 30 marlin for 98k ( didnt like the ride imo) The blackfin rode wayyy better and fealt much more solid. I think I am going to make the deal with the blackfin. Just wanted opinions and appreciate it.

Just because a boat is a 91 does not mean it does not have value. If well maintained and upgraded the year does not mean all that much in my opinion. I’d rather buy a 91 that’s been upgraded with new everything than a neglected 2010 boat.

Boat is in slip in Rhode Island, original armstrong bracket, and was first bottom painted in 2018. Owner bought the boat in Florida in 2018. His wife wants something with more amenities etc..
.I test drove it for two hours in Buzzards bay two weeks ago. I filled up the gas tank and went cruising me and owner ( great guy btw) boat ran flawless.
Had 3-4' seas on our bow on way in from no mans island. Took the waves like cake @ 28 mph 1.3 gph. Top speed was 44 mph on our way into harbor. Raymarine axiom 2019 , radar as well. All electrical new.
Only thing is it needs a good buffing oxidation etc.. I think I am going to pull the trigger. I cant think if another " canyon ready " boat in this budget for me.
ps. No generator

Yachtsurvey.com Has a few reviews on the BF. Awesome rigs that get repowered for a reason. One of the top boats in the production boat food chain

The seller is asking 36.5k and you offered 25k ? You think he should give you his boat for 11.5k less than he's asking.


alright,,I've read enough. ADIOS

Make the offer. I offered 25k on my blackfin on a 50k asking. Worst anyone will say is no. And if so, work up to where everyone says yes.

Great boat. And could always repower easily down the road.

Awesome! Can’t wait for pics! If you like it, and know what to expect and no surprises, then it’s worth whatever you are ok paying.

I bought a 99 Jeep Wrangler for $10k cash. Was it too much? Not to me it wasn’t.
