Asking vs Selling price

Been out looking to purchase a used boat. As with all things, I would assume that actual selling prices are lower than asking prices. There is the old saying, "offer half of the asking price and don''t be surprised when it''s accepted". Is there any source for finding out "actual selling price" of boats out there? Of course the boat and location will have something to do with the actual selling price, but is there any rule of thumb about what to offer?
