Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

This is a case where "average" is a meaningless number. If one foot is in a bucket of ice, and the other is in a bucket of boiling water, on "average" you are very comfortable.

Here in Florida, at least, there are boats that sell in weeks, and there are boats that have been on the market for years and years. It really depends on how realistically they are priced, and the fact is that a whole lot of sellers are unrealistic about what their boat is worth. Watch the market for a while, go out and actually look at a number of boats (because the photos in ads can be completely misleading), and pretty soon you will get an idea of what a realistic range is for the kind of boat that you want.
