Re: What is my boat worth...

I paid 500 for the Cal 29 and the only reason I did do it was it had a worthwhile sail inventory other wise it would have been chopped up



While it looks pretty dam good in this shot you just have no idea how bad the reality was

The pictures look very nice I have to assume the value would come from a combo of what the market will bare and how well it surveys as after sandy insurance became another level of difficult on older boats

In your case it is unlikely there are not some hidden issues common with any boat that age and I cant see all the real issues like wet core, old standing rigging , old through hulls connected to generic hose ect

I would do some looking and see what there going for on Yachtworld and such places and fell things out as it is going to cost you X to keep it

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Re: What is my boat worth...

You can ask for $8000 but in the current market you will likely be waiting a long time till spring at least) to sell your boat at that price so you may want to start at $6000 like jzk suggested above.

Re: What is my boat worth...

Looks really nice. Personally I would have preferred a nice chart plotter to the TV. Its tough. My former partner has been trying to sell the old H31 which is as nice and he can't even get an offer enough to pay the storage. We had out boat in Kingston Rondout for a few years loved it there - now we are just south of there. Times are tough.

Then again, you only need one buyer -good luck to you. I'm guessing $6k is a good place to start.

Re: What is my boat worth...

To be honest, that boat seems plenty awesome for $6,000. But that seems to be where the market is.

Re: What is my boat worth...

Is it a G30 centerboard or fixed keel version?

Lol it does come with hormel chili!!

Thank you all for your replies!! It's a beautiful boat. I appreciate all your feedback. Does $900 for winter storage seem right?? I feel as though $6000 cash wouldn't be able to justify selling it as I get much more enjoyment out of than $6000 could buy.

Re: What is my boat worth...

right know they are only worth what you can get someone to pay for it. not many will buy it just to store it all winter unless the price is very low.
