more value

given this senario, purchase a new production boat,ie beneteau, hanse, catalina say for 175k, or a 3-4 year old semi production boat,sabre, tartan or Pacific Seacraft for about the same amount. Use the boat for about 5 years and keep it up as new, which one would be 1. easier to sell at the end. 2. worth more.
Your opinion is always appreciated.

k1vsk will become famous soon enough
Rule #1:
all boats depreciate; new boats depreciate faster.
There is no Rule #2; only cystal ball opinions and your own premonitions about what the future actually holds

There's really too many variables to come to an exact answer. And you seem to have left your own enjoyment of the boat, out of the equation. While there are many objective reasons for choosing an individual boat, the deciding ones are usually subjective.

You also don't mention how and where you'll use it. Two determining factors that will influence your enjoyment.

assume similar rigs, similar uses, similar location. Just which is more valuable at the end given the same care.
Thanks again

Any 3 to 4 year old

Boat will already be depreciated..some by quite a bit others less...Your new purchase will maintain its basic value for maybe two years tops..

But as others have said..regarding choice of usage will determine what boat you should look for...And what the market will bare when you want out of it..

I always buy used...I want Daddy Warbucks taking the biggest hit before i buy...

PS: If this is MR. Warbucks...please buy a Tayana 54 Ketch rig...keep it 10 years and then sell it to me..

The production boats aren't going to be all that similar to the semi-custom boats IMHO... still too many variables...

BTW, the majority of the big depreciation drops are during the first five years, and a 3-4 year old semi-custom cruiser are both still going to lose some value.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The value of any given boat is more tied to the supply and demand for it, than what boat it is. If resale is your primary goal, than you need to look at the market you'll be selling it in and see what people there are buying. Other than that, I don't know what else to tell you.
