Default Boat Price Guides

What some are guides to get a rough value of used boats other than NADA. Contenders are not listed in NADA.

Retail or Wholesale used - either would help

BUC Value is another one

All of those price guides are relatively useless unless you're dealing with a banker because they're so inaccurate.

For market value, market research is the best plan. You might consider contacting your local dealer or broker to help with historical sold prices.

Well yes I have done market research - there are none of my model (relative new and unusual size. ) But sure I can extrapolate. I like that app they have for cars that gives what people actually paid for theirs but . I pretty much assume people sell their accurately described boats for 20% less than advertised but that too varies greatly with demand.

OP, are you more concerned with getting a steal of a deal, or more worried about getting the right boat for you at a price somewhere in the ballpark of a reasonable deal, even if it is on the high end of that ballpark range?

That is a great question that you made me think about. Usually when I sell something I just sell it. Anything near my price I take - it is always better than what you get for trade in. Right now I do not have to sell immediately to buy the new boat so my old strategy of just pricing it way under everyone else isn't needed - but don't want to post trading dock prices and have everyone just kick tires. :-). It is nice to point to a document and say - see this is in mint condition and still priced below the guide.

I didn't realize you were selling, what's the year/make/model of the boat?
