Re: Initial Offer Question

Offer what (you) think the boat is worth. Look at the total market to judge this, not just a certain model. We have offered 30 to over 50% off asking, most said yes. Our current under contract is also a over 50% off boat. Bad location is the major reason. Should have it final next week if survey goes well.
Oh if the boat you are looking at is listed by "captain Ed" good luck. I worked on a boat he has for a couple years. Finally got reasonable and down to the price range we first offered but we are now in a higher range of boat. That boat is still for sale last I looked. Still a buyers market lots of boats. Don't fall in love until after you own it. But do buy a boat you can love otherwise what's the point. In the end only YOU need to be happy with the deal.
