There is general accepted value, the insurance value, and the value we wish we can buy or sell a boat value.

It will al be determined by the buyers pocketbook, the buyers want but smart intuitiveness, or the sellers need to liquidate.

It actually is that simple. Kinda like the mass of calls to BoatUS for unlimited towing based on a thread (120+ based on my conversations)... the same goes for buying a boat.

I have one of two ever sold in the US, but on the East Coast it is 10K cheaper - but I paid 15K less than asking , but still 5K more than what the east coast sees the value as.

Its all a gamble.. value is percieved in many different ways - but the only one that should concern you - is the value to you. You have the wallet and ultimately the ability to transfer ownership.. kapiche?

BOLTER33 is on a distinguished road
prices lowside for newer boats

looks to me a boat like mine is listed on the low side. They don't give a value for my boat , but for a beneteau 423 its 75000 less then I paid for my boat after 1 year (bought a 2004 in 2007 used). I got mine at a fair price, mybe because there are a lot in charter service that sell after 2 years at a low price, brings the average down for these boats.
