Really depends on the boat, but in general I'd say you did good.

You did ok, unless it was a rabco, then you did terrible.

Used boat market is sky high right now.

You got money, right? Mustíve been enough... you took it. Kind of really an introspective question isnít it? Or sellerís remorse? Donít dwell on it. Move on. And for Gods sake donít ask our collective opinion because thatís asking for a crucifixion.

You asked for a thought. I provided one. Others will too. Donít ask if you donít want.

Fact he got someone to give him money for his Bayliner is good enough for me. Well done, OP.

boat details would make all the difference. for a bayliner 66% return is knocking it out of the park. a high end boat such as yellowfin, you left alot of money on the table!


what matters the most, is that your happy with the deal!

You didn't get a return. I believe what you mean is you were able to recover 66% of the original purchase price.

The up-tick between a "normal" 55% and your 65% would be a result of condition. If your boat didn't have a handful of things needing replacing, repairing, or polishing, then buyers recognized an opportunity. Good on ya.

I would ask what the percentage between asking and selling prices was.

Way TOO MANY variables to give you a good opinion. As others have said, you seem happy and that is all that matters. If you could have gotten more, it doesnt really matter now..

Congrads on your sale..

If you're happy with what you got then you did well. And since you can't change the sale it's too late to worry about how good or bad it was.
