Prices are so ridiculous that I'm considering downsizing for a couple years and re-purchasing the same year and model boat I sold for $32,500 ... 7 years ago.

The going rate for the same boat is $29,000-32,000. The guy I sold my boat to could list it for exactly what he paid for it - and be inline with current pricing.

This. Thanks for wordsmithing !

Im happy. Just curious is all. I felt considering everything recoup of 66% of cost is good. Never said I killed it. New owner loves the boat. I enjoyed my boat. All is good, just looking for input from others.

NOW, it’s your guys turn when you sell YOURS!!!

All that matters is the Buyer is happy with the price and seller is happy that it is gone. Done deal

You did good, but as my father used to say, "Is good ever really good enough?" How's that?

Any respectable THT member would have gotten 110%+ on any boat sale. Loser! 😎

You need validation from people you don't know ?

People don’t buy and own boats for a return. You sold it and the buyer bought it. Both parties are comfortable with the price. Good deal. Move on and buy a bigger boat, start over again.
