Great layout, love the Stidd chair.

Wow. I heard that Atlantic Boat's prices had gotten outragous but i didn't imagine they had gotten that bad. I would guess you could have saved $100k by having the boat finished by another high quality finisher. Several come to mind.

If Atlantic Boat's prices have skyrocketed, how are they competing in this market? I know several high quality finishers that are willing to work very reasonable just to stay busy.

Nobody can argue the legendary sea keeping abilities of the 35' Duffy, but at some price point , where the Duffy is exponentially higher, you have to consider alternatives. Especially when there are some other great designs around with similar abilities since Spencer Lincoln first designed the 35'.

I think they all went up. I called about a new boat. A basic lobster is $275,000.

I just recently got involved with a Yacht Brokerage group named "Rudders and Moorings".

The reason for joining them is that they are very active and successful in advertising and attracting buyers to their listings.

Every listing gets posted on several websites including Facebook,Twitter,and LinkedIn. Also they have a strong presence Internationally as well. In today's weak US dollar that attracts a lot of buyers.

I have been dappling in boats forever,but the only who has ever sold my boat has been a broker.

If you would like to talk about this further,feel free to contact me @ 617-799-4211.

Thank You but I have no interest in listing my vessel with a broker.

Anything is only worth what someone is willing to pay.

True, market will always dictate selling price of anything tangible...but what does this have to do with my preference to not list with a broker? Not too many brokers I have ever met that were worth their commission, unless the seller really has no interest in his own vessel. There are a few knowledgeable ones that do their homework and are professionals, but in large part are not.

I dont know any boat brokers but if they are anything like real estate brokers, i'd prefer to steer clear of them!

Captjt, Stick to your guns and list on your own. If things change after the winter we might talk if you still have the boat.

Plan to Med. Ive owned 45 boats in my lifetime and sold them all myself without assistance. I did list 2 with brokers....guess who ended up selling the (2) I listed with the brokers? Yep. ...and through my own advertising efforts. Brokers have their place but I just dont think for me.

Billy was one of the few that did his homework and earned his commission. He knew downeasters well too.

I would stay away from brokers for as long as you can. A good boat will sell for a reasonable price according to the market. I only meant that this is a really poor market to be selling a really nice boat in. Timing is everything.
My point is this, it is a really nice boat in a really Bad market.

That's a beautifull boat It maybe a good choice for us if we took the tower and bow pulpit off, would there be a market to sell those items once removed or are they to custom built? We have a 32 Albemarle FB which we're selling to get Pop in a boat he doesn't have to climb up and down steps to run. We use our boat for canyon fishing and all kinds of mid-range and inshore fishing as well, and we also use it as our liveing quaters when down there 2-3 days at a time, Would this boat be a good fit for that or is more of just a commercial fishing vessel? I had some guys recommend that we look into some of the Downeast boats and we've been told they'd be a good boat for an older gent, that they ride excellent and are extremely stable. I saw the 28 BHM which looked like a great charter type boat but a bit to small for staying on, I see alot of the Beal models when looking for DE SF boats, wondering if this would be good or any other companies that may make a boat for what we want to use it for? thanks very much.
