Could be, but I see no correlation. People list their boats high all the time, for a variety of reason. Believe it or not, in some cases, the boat is worth it, despite inferior comps. In others they are just stubborn, no mater what they paid, be it more or less.

I have a buddy whose boat is for sale right now for about twice what he paid. Granted, he did a huge refit of nearly every mechanical system aboard. However, he just has a line in the water to see if there are any stupid fish out there willing to reimburse him for the cost of his refit. If one bites, he will sell and move up. If not not, he's just enjoying his boat.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
