How much to pay for a cruising boat

ask the broker for all previous sales of the same or similar model boats. all boats listed on YachtWorld have to report the sales price (although not all brokers comply) but brokers have access to this sales data at YachtWorld or BoatSold. your surveyor should have this info as well. a 10% discount is not at all unusual and much larger discounts to asking price are common depending on time of year, time on market, and seller''s motivation etc.

good luck
