Help w/Scanmar boats reputation!


Maybe the boat is perfect for you... but be patient and keep looking and be sure. Part of the ''reputation'' factor I mentioned in my other posts has to do with this.

Since this is your fist boat, it will likely not be your last. Thus you have to take into account how it will sell. This part of the subjective reputation factor you have to account for. Selling an older, lesser known boat can take YEARS (I am willing to bet that boat has been on the market for 2 yrs or more, ask them). When it is your turn to sell, that time will be frustrating, keep you from your other boat and cost real money.

Selling a boat is equal parts: reputation, condition, price and luck. Thus an unknown boat with less than desireable qualities (mentioned by the poster above) going for top dollar.... hmmmmmmm ... not good math should it be yours.

Hope this helps.
