Re: How much should I offer for this boat

Don't buy an overequipped/undervalued boat from a friend, if you value the friendship.
At least, not right now.
IF he puts it on the market, IF he seeks your counsel regarding the boat's value, IF he prices it at a price that you are comfortable with, then make an offer- your friend has made the first move. If you offer to buy this boat before he actually puts it on the market, and you set the price based on what you think it is worth, your friend may feel that you are low-balling him, taking advantage of the fact that you know they have had a couple of bad years.

Let him come to you.
