Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

What a resource this site is. I thank you all for your insight. My situation is I don't have a boat that needs to be sold, but rather disposed of. I'm in the market for a r/c 30-35' 1980-'90. Hopefully one that can be sailed home within 4 weekends or so. I have contacted 3 owners/brokers to find out if the listed boat is still available. All three are. My next step is to go see them, but work prevents me at this time. I hate being the guy who keeps calling but not showing up. I guess if it sells by the time I'm ready, it wasn't meant to be. Should I also assume that if a listing over 6 months is still active it is priced too high?
