Granted, a lot of folks want to buy in the spring rather than in the winter, but still if the price is right and the boat is being put out there...if it has been around for a full year, someone's not playing with a full deck.
just a datapoint:

There is a Pearson 36-2 that has been listed in Yachtworld (with several different brokers and price reductions) since 2006! It's still listed, as of today!
