Re: Sailboat trailer value?
To help you get sort of in the ballpark price wise, a new trailer for a 30-40' boat rated at ~15k lbs would go for $8,000-$15,000 depending on options like galvanizing, self launching, etc. I have been watching for a trailer for my boat and most of the used trailers I see go for between half of the new value if in good shape and 3/4 if in truly excellent shape. The few trailers that I have seen which are in fair shape go for significantly less.
If the trailer really is rated for 30k lbs, it is likely commercial and requires more than a 1 ton pickup to haul so I have no idea what the pricing would be then.
On that note, if anyone has one for sale in New England that has a capacity of 11k lbs or greater, let me know.
