I find it interesting, in a sad sort of way, that so many of you are certain what this boat is worth without ONE BIT of information about the actual boat. You don't know the make, model, size, age, included gear, etc., but you're sure it not worth the $35k that the guy offered (36% below asking price), and many are claiming he offered too much. HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS? My advice to this guy is be careful of free advice you get on the Internet - it's worth what you paid for it, maybe less.
My prediction is that if this guy buys it he will end up paying $45K. Not based on the boat at all, but based on the fact that the OP let it slip that he would pay that much. If the boat is truly well cared for, owners seldom lower their price by more than 20% in response to a single offer. They may go lower than that 6 months from now, but may not be willing to accept it at this point. But that prediction is also worth what you paid for it (or less).
