Re: Average number of months for a sailboat to sell

I planned for a year and sold in less then a week - yikes. The boat was very clean and very well taken care of. I was serious about selling and the first buyer was serious about buying and had done his homework. We both walked away happy.

It's amazing how many dirty, smelly and poorly maintained boats are out there.

I would say the market is saturated with less than desirable boats and the good ones sell fast. Honestly, the brokers have really been pretty dead on for price of sale and length of time to sell.
