If you find a specific model boat that you want, check the online sources for prices on comparable models, then offer what you think it's worth. You can go crazy trying to figure out a formula. Time on market, age, condition, etc., are all valid things to consider, but in the end, it comes down to what you think it's worth. You could start off at 20% less than the asking price, and dicker from there. No price will be firm till after a survey, so the offered price just gets the ball rolling.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
