There are millions of Nauticats out on the market, which has driven the price through the basement. My Catalina 30, on the other hand, has tripled or perhaps even quadrupled since I bought her last October. It's all about supply and demand.

Sailhog,

You have a qulity boat from a quality manufacuter. Yours is a racer/cruiser with the emphasis on racer. It takes a true gentleman and a man of exquisite taste to sail such a fine vessel, which turns heads like a Hinkley and sails like a Swan.

Congratulations on your yacht. Now, we need to temper this discussion to help the other members of this forum with less adequate eyesight to realize the virtues of our vessels.

I don't know what you guys are arguing about. All three are great boats and I would be happy with any of them, but.....mine is faster

You can still find a deal, though. There are many sellers out there who want or have bought that next boat, and are either waiting to get their money out of the current boat or are tried of paying for slips for the new and old. Don't give up hope and have patience. No matter the season, it is still a buyer's market.

Don't know if I told you this story or not. My partner bought a Sea Ray 320 (or something like that) and traded up for the 340. Sea Ray gladly rolled in his "negative equity" and approved him. You know, gotta keep them in the family. Well, he decided top sell it so called up his "friends" at Sea Ray. He owes 150,000 ish. He talked to the broker. Their tune changed a bit from when they sold it to him. They said he will be able to sell it (after a lot of negotiation and many months later) for about 90 or so. Of course, my partner flipped at how that boat could depreciate that fast. They then responded, "But there is also a 10% commission on that..."

Whew. Gotta love Sea Ray.
