Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

Since 2006?
"Honey, I'm trying to sell the boat, honest I am."
"Hello, Guinness? I'd like to apply for the world record for longest running boat ad."

Or sometimes, apparently the broker forgets to take a listing down and it stays there like an abandoned fishing trap?

No wait, that's one of those fake ads placed by terrorists, or spies, so they can send emails back and forth without being obvious about it, right?

Or, an estate sale, where the court-appointed administrator keeps himself appointed and paid every year by saying "Well, we're trying to get full value for the assets but that boat just won't sell."

A seven year listing, there's got to be a story behind it. Is that the one in Groton, or Winthrop Harbor? If you believe the listings, they're both gorgeous. And flawless.
